Our Family Mission Statement

We are a real family seeking to serve a real and living God. Our desire and mission is to magnify and glorify God in our everyday life at home, church and abroad. Our goal is to help families understand what their purpose and design is in regards to the family; recognize the enemy for who he is and what he is doing; and to point families, both saved and unsaved, to Christ as to become living pictures of Christ and His bride and of God and His children. As families are strengthened the church will be strengthened, therefore, being a brighter light to a dark and hurting world.

Engagement Photos

   By Elisabeth
   Taking engagement photos was such a blast...especially with all the excited siblings around! Nathan had built a swing just for me the day before (so romantic!!!) and we captured some great shots there. Other than a 15-minute downpour (which only gave us extra excitement and thrill), the weather was absolutely perfect for a photo shoot--just enough cloud overcast to even out the shade and keep the temperatures down to a decent degree. Forget posing, the camera gave us good excuse to talk, interact, enjoy each other's company. And various family members took great thrill in drawing out the moments with their sweet comments. We are so deeply grateful for the manifold blessings the Lord has bestowed upon us. Indeed, we are blessed beyond measure and stand in awe of His goodness.

First off, here are a few candid shots of some of the background crew...
