When she's not sitting impatiently in the Chick-fil-A drive thru, she's chasing babies or folding laundry! She will occasionally try to make her hair look good, but it has to be a worthy event! Otherwise, she's spraying dry-shampoo and running on fumes! Adoption education is her heart cry; growing families is just an added bonus! She is a professional prank artist, has never gotten a speeding ticket, and is never sarcastic! When asked what is the best part of her job, she replied, "my job? I forget that it's technically called that. Kingdom work is never a job; its just the merging place of my calling in this life and an enjoyable hobby."
Favorite Bible Scripture: Romans 6:1-14
Lover of Christian rap, David loves riding with the windows down and the music turned way up! As a member of the US Military, David serves an active duty job during the daytime hours, and wears his Chief Financial Officer cape at night (after helping Jessica fold laundry, of course)! He works for the Weapons of Mass Destruction with the US Army and while that is a very serious job that takes a lot of dedication and determination, he is an amazing father and husband! He enjoys fishing in whatever spare time he can find, and always needs extra space in the church pew in case he feels the Spirit move! He is the sole reason Jessica and the kiddos are ever anywhere on time, and it takes a lot to frustrate him. When asked what his favorite part of the day is, he claims, "coming home to 3 smiling faces and 3 kisses. The excitement shown to me when I get home is definitely my favorite."
