We are a family of 10 livin' in PA and lovin' life. With all the kids still in the nest, Mom teaching seminary each morning, and Dad serving as Dr. and Stake President here, life is FULL of great challenge,endless opportunity, and rich rewards.
Our family's testimony of Christ, His Church, and all that goes with it, grows daily as we see His Hand making miracles happen in our lives and the lives of our friends in the stake. We love being a witness to His Love as we watch His tender mercies and promises being fulfilled.
Being Mom, and right in the middle of it all, is the hardest and BEST thing I've ever experienced. I'm here to share some of that 'experience' with you!
Isaac: Oldest and most depended upon by Dad, Mom, and seven little sisters! Junior in high school and on to higher things! Loves all things science and music but probably most PEOPLE!
Emily: Bright, capable, intelligent, organized, and very loving and nurturing. Best friends to her identical twin sister Anna. Best big sister to 6 younger ones.
Anna: Delightful, full of drive and determination, fun-loving and completely family oriented, Anna is a sophomore this year, with friends and fun a plenty around her. Best friend: identical twin sister Emily.
Mikela: #1 helper at home. Faithful to Mom and Dad in word and deed, she's been an angel since birth. We all look up to her and you would too if you knew her. Super happy, and steady as they come, Mikela's LOVING school and life, happy to be hitting 8th grade this year. Wise beyond her years.
Katey: 10 - in every way. With a pure and very LOVING heart, Kate throws her all into life. She's always got a good idea. She LOVES her dog and comes in at the end of the day with the dirtiest clothes from PLAY! At the barn, on the tree swing, with the dog, on a jog, or with her little sisters, Kate's gotta way of livin' life to its fullest! She'll be making the most of it in 5th grade this year.
Esther Beth: jeans and a t-shirt girl, this 7 year old sings so beautifully, growls like no other, really 'gets it' far beyond her age, and is mama's girl forever. Her smile lights up the world, her laughter is contagious, and her wit never ceases to amaze us.
Grace: her name for school she announced, is 5 and headed off to kindergarten! Also known by Zoie, she is full of LIFE and LOVE. Daddy makes the sunrise in her world. NEVER in anything but a dress, she is precocious and precious all at once. She lives by "It is more blessed to give than receive". And we all LOVE her all the more for it!
Clara Joy is our JOY! Nothing but Delight, she fills our world with happy!! She sparkles and shines with "BEST DAY EVER!!!" attitude and never seems to run out of zest. Feminine and delicate, She seems so little and needing protection that we are all endeared to her. She is sure she can take on anything in life, eager to grow so big! Just 3, I must admit I want to freeze her here forever.
