We turned our what if  into why not and spent nine months traveling around the world as a family.

Our only agenda was to learn about ourselves, different cultures, each other, and to volunteer wherever we could; living a low-budget, high-adventure, un-scripted leap visiting six continents, 24 countries, 85 cities, and traveling over 60,000 miles.

We infuse our presentations with laughter, stories, and humor, sharing the tips and life lessons we learned, not only from the trip, but from our many years of asking ourselves, “What if?”

Our talks are interactive and audiences tell us we inspire them to do the things that make their hearts skip a beat, out of excitement and possibility! It’s in those moments that courage takes their hand and guides them along their own path. Our talks give them a glimpse of what life can look like when they tap into their own courage vibe.

The Temple White Family exceeded our expectations as guest speakers at the Here & There Travel Fest. Their story is fantastic and their bubbling enthusiasm is contagious… Folks left smiling and itching for more.
Sean Sterling, Oregonian Media Group
Jody White and her Courage Vibe message are equally amazing! The way Jody tells her story of her amazing travels and the transformation she and her family underwent is absolutely moving. Audiences will be delighted by her and be changed for the better.
Denise Stillman, MBA, Go the Distance Baseball
I heard the family speak about their year-long, around the world trip. The trip itself was inspirational, and their presentation drew you into how the seeds were planted, how they started and the adventure along the way. Throughout the presentation, not only did I find myself saying “my family could do that”, but It also spurred me on in the challenges in my business that need an extra dose of courage.
Brad McDonald, Reveal Studio Inc.
John and Jody White and their family make a very interesting, and inspiring, presentation. They traveled as a family with an open mind about how they could find ways to do good works in the countries they visited. The inspiring part is about how they met so many wonderful people, enriched their lives, and gave so much to the places they visited. Their story is entertaining, amusing, at times heart wrenching, and highly unusual. It is well delivered and comes from their own experience. The context of their story is to have the courage to take a leap into unknown and uncharted territory. Highly recommended.
John Amond, East Rotary Club of Portland
I had so much fun listening to your amazing journey. It sounds like you had a blast!
Alexa, Middle School Student
It was a honor to have Jody Temple White speak to our organization.  Jody is an articulate and engaging speaker who connected with our members on a personal level.  Her passion for sharing her family’s story and how their lessons in courage can be applied by anyone was inspirational to all.  Additionally, Jody was professional and easy to work with when scheduling and planning our event.  I highly recommend her as a speaker for your event.
Jennifer Decker, Civitan Online Chapter
Your emotional, informative, dynamic, thought provoking presentation today was wonderful!!  The positive energy you both radiate is infectious and I feel fortunate to have met you both.
Karla Rifkin, PEO Milwaukie Chapter
Thank you so much for coming in and sharing your experience with us. It was really fun and amazing to see all of the pictures from your trip. Seeing all of the things that you did inspired me to make a difference. I will be sure to pick up a copy of your video. Thanks again for coming in and sharing your experience with us!
Olivia, Middle School Student
Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed your presentation. What a great story you have. You and your family were so brave to have just up and traveled the world like you did. A lifetime experience I’m sure you’ll never forget. I hope you continue sharing your story.
Ronda Butler, Milwaukie Rotary
