Meet the Family

I’m a perfectionist who thinks that everything in the house has its place…just don’t look inside my cabinets. I am blessed to be married to the absolute love of my life for almost 12 years, and it’s a joy to be raising our two boys. I’m a green eyed lady in love with three blue eyed men. We are a ministry family, and we love to serve God by loving His people. Above all else, I am so thankful for my savior Jesus, who rescues me from myself time and time again.

 Parker: He is an 8 year old soccer loving blue eyed boy. In his free time, he would love nothing more than to play sports and video games all day every day . Whatever Parker does, he does with all of his heart…whether it’s a soccer game or a spelling test. He is competitive individual, yet he has a sensitive heart, which makes him a great older brother, and loyal friend. He is a pizza and pasta machine, and drinks more milk than I think is humanly possible.

Kent: He is a 5 year old dimpled firecracker….literally….he was born on the 4th of July. In his free time, he would love nothing more than to eat snacks and play the Wii every waking moment. Kent is full of spunk, and he has this unique ability to makes us all laugh even when he is not even trying.  His stomach is a bottomless pit, and if it were up to him, he’d try to fill it with pop-tarts. He loves to color and draw, and he takes joy in giving away his creations.

Erik: He is a 30-something (haha) techie, who loves all things Apple and Ministry related. He is the executive pastor at Cornerstone Church in Bethalto, and on the side he operates a web design business at I fell in love with Erik when we were 17, but it took him until he was 19 before he realized he loved me! Good thing I was patient. Erik is my perfect counterpart. He is consistent, when I’m on a roller coaster.  He is positive when I’m negative. He is analyitical when I’m impulsive. I respect and admire that he is who he says he is, and he lives in a way consistent with the character of Christ. I love this man!
