It’s a beautiful world—go, see, and enjoy it!

There are a lot of wonderful people in the world—go and meet them!

Hi, we are Diane and Dell Shiell. We co-founded Christian Home Exchange in 1991. We did our first home exchange in 1988. It was a life-changing experience for our family. At the time, our children were ages 10, 11, and 13. That’s the ages of our grandchildren, now!


This is a picture of us in London. (We are from Minnesota and live in Florida.)

We are Christians, but you don’t have to do a home exchange with other Christians to have a successful home exchange. The “key” to your success is to take your faith with you—be a Christian wherever you go and with whomever you meet.

Become part of the Christian Home Exchange Community.

We are part of the World’s #1 Home Exchange Network so we can provide you 65,000 home exchange listings in 150 countries. The thought of that many home exchange opportunities should get your imagination running free. Click Here To Join and receive a 25% Discount.

After you join, visit our Getting Started page for Step-By-Step instructions to begin making arrangements for your home exchange.

We’ve written a couple of books to help you learn more about the home exchange experience.


Our most recent book— Go, Pastor. Go! —was specifically written to encourage clergy to use a home exchange to plan an affordable sabbatical. (Released December 2, 2016.)


In our first book— Fair Exchange: A Ministry Exchange Between the USA and Norway —we share the story of the year that our family did a home and ministry exchange with a Norwegian pastor and his family. (Second Edition. Released December 4, 2016.)

You are, also, invited to visit our Blog where we’ve included articles about home exchanges and travel.

Become part of the Christian Home Exchange Community—for the time of your life!

God be with you and bless you,

Diane and Dell
