|More About Our Family
|Our Special Interests|
When Jonathan isn't pouring over law books and court cases, he loves taking apart cars and repairing them. This is one of his favorite things to do with his father-in-law. He loves strategy games, volleyball (he is very competitive), and outdoor activities, like canoeing or deer hunting. Another thing he greatly delights in doing is speaking at various Christian events. He is the one you want on your team to lead you to the winning goal.
Sarah loves writing bible studies, arranging music, taking in baby animals and raising them, learning new recipes, ministering at nursing homes, and helping out at Christian events. She is a people person and the life of the party. You can be pretty sure she is the one cracking a joke or making silly faces at the next get-together.
We are Christians, saved by the Grace of God through the sacrifice of Jesus for us on the cross. We are eternally grateful for His mercy towards us and love Him immensely. It is our goal to live in a way that is pleasing to Him.
We attend Church every Sunday. Jonathan is a music leader and Sarah is one of the Church musicians. Sarah's dad is one of our pastors. We have daily Bible time, sing hymns throughout the week, and seek out ministry opportunities as a family. Even in Jonathan's job, He gets an opportunity to stand up for things found in God's word. That is one reason he wanted to become a lawyer. In Sarah's job she is able to teach young children the gift of music, a way to worship the Lord through song is such a good way to minister to others.
|Our Musical Interest|
We love old hymns, contemporary Christian music, bluegrass music, fiddle/folk, and easy listening. Sarah is quick to turn on the radio every time she gets in the car. Music just lifts your spirit!
Jonathan plays the piano. Sarah plays piano, violin, and dabbles with banjo, guitar and mandolin. We are a musical household! We also love singing. Jonathan sings melody, and Sarah loves to harmonize with singing alto.
|About Our Home|
Our home is comfy! We live in a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, home out in the hill country of Texas. Plenty of room to run around and play, with less than a 20 min drive to several large cities. We have a beautiful view from our front porch of green trees, and a field that is full of calves every spring.
We feel very blessed to be able to have the best of both worlds. Easy drive to big city perks, but our little slice of paradise, away from everything is waiting when we get home.
|We live in the state of...|
The great state of Texas is our home! The lone star state. The beef state. The super-American-state.
We live in a small-town community that has several beautiful parks, baseball fields, and are a very short drive to a lake.
|We Prefer a Child Who Is...
|Age of Child|
Newborn to 3 months old.
Yes, we would love twins! Twins, actually run in Sarah's family!
Several people would be tickled if we grew our family in this way, and we would just love it.
We have no preference.
|Ethnicity of Child||Caucasian |
