|More About Our Family
|Our Special Interests|
Our family enjoys adventure and lives an active lifestyle. One of our family bucket list items is to visit all the National Parks, and we've visited four this past year, including the Grand Canyon and Yellowstone. As a basketball coach, Matt is active with athletics and enjoys teaching Alex about sports and helping him with school projects. AnnMarie is active with yoga, and as a family, we love to hike.
We've been blessed to have a home where we can host get-togethers and holiday celebrations. Matt loves his smoker and makes a mean BBQ, while AnnMarie is the ultimate hostess. On Sunday evenings, we open our home to a "small group" study for couples with children from our church. We love doing life in the community and supporting others.
Christianity is at the center of our family. AnnMarie's father is a retired minister and Matt's parents are active in various Christian organizations. As a Christian family, we believe in teaching our children about Jesus Christ and modeling service to one another and our community.
|Our Musical Interest|
While it varies AnnMarie enjoys Christian artists and with Matt's influence is expanding her appreciation for country music.
|About Our Home|
The pillars of our home center around faith, family, and friends. We enjoy hosting a multitude of friends and family during the year and enjoy sharing the blessing we've received. Our home is cozy and the door is always open.
Alex will turn ten this fall and is so very excited to become a big brother. He is nurturing with an outgoing and loving personality that exudes love, kindness, and protection.
|We live in the state of...|
Arizona. AnnMarie was born in South Dakota and has also lived for shorter periods of time in New Mexico and Toronto, Canada. Matt was born in South Korea, adopted as an infant and raised in Minnesota. He has lived in Arizona for 14 years after moving from Minnesota. While we do enjoy getting out of the heat occasionally, Arizona will always be home to us.
Our town is a small, quiet community in central Arizona with our community schools just a bike ride away. We have lived in our current home in a cul-de-sac for almost three years. We are blessed to have wonderful neighbors, which include a half-dozen young children between the ages of three and ten. There is LOTS of outdoor play time and we look out for and help one other.
