We are Keith and Suzan and together we create Yes Vida! A blog about a family living abroad in Spain while raising kids and serving the Lord.

Yes Vida comes from our answer to our calling. To leave the comfort of the American dream to live in Spain venturing into a life of faith, love, and trust while exploring all the beauty of Spain. Our goal is not only to share our journey of a family living abroad but hopefully to inspire you to follow your purpose and your passions. Life is short. We only have now so let’s not waist any more time doing what we haven’t called to do! It’s about time to say yes to your calling, to your life! And here together we say Yes Vida!

in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:6

More About Keith

Faithful fan of Cincinnati Bengals, Keith left his hometown right after college to venture out in CA. As he lived in a multicultural environment it led him to the desire to learn Spanish and to serve the Lord in a another country. He is a hard worker who also always takes time to dedicate for his family and for empowering people through God’s word while doing life with them. Keith has a bachelors in material engineering, a MBA with emphasis in Global international business, and he has worked for several years as a plant manager. He also rocks at the electrical guitar and gets pretty cranky if doesn’t get his run in the morning. He enjoys a nice book, traveling, and eating good food, surfing, fishing, and coffee.

More About Suzan

Born in Brazil to a Brazilian mother and a Japanese father, Suzan is a gal who loves immersing herself into different cultures, exploring their food and views of the world. She is a dreamer and enjoys helping people to live their full potential. She got her Bachelors degree in Theater Arts but gave up the stage life to raise her kids. She expresses herself through photography, writing, singing, sharing time with her family and friends, loving people around her, and laughing aloud (sometimes when it’s not quite appropriate). Her goal in life is to be a tool in God’s hands so He can use her to bring His kingdom on earth!
