About Me

We are a family of 10, who love God and each other with all our hearts!

Who were those kids getting married 22 years ago?  Two people who had not a clue what they were doing.

Duane and I were the best of friends.  We are the best of friends.    During our home studies that is what we continue to tell our social worker; we just enjoy being together so much.

That is what we tell our kids.  The finer points of theology will come, child rearing will come, but being the best of friends that is what makes it enduring.  When God gives you the gift of a spouse that is your kindred spirit, when God gives your marriage grace beyond words, that is what carries a young couple through 8 children, 5 miscarriages and the foster care journey, tough economic times, and lack of work. 

We pray they find godly spouses who they love being with because that is what carries you through.

That and a lot of laughter.... and being left handed!
