About our family

We are a Reformed Christian family. We believe that as Christians we are to constantly be growing closer to the Lord, comfort isn't an option. We weren't always this way.

Although we became Christians in 2000, it was a comment at a recent dinner party that skyrocketed us into a new level of love for the Lord. We are so grateful for that comment, although that comment was not intended to lead to these changes.

We have been married for 11 years in August. We have 4 children: 7yo Cha-hisser, 5yo Jack Jalapeno, 2yo Grace and Ling Ling born 3.09.

Homeschool is not just a choice we made because of a hatred of the public school system (or private for that matter). We feel that God has given the responsibility of educating children to the parents. It is our job to raise them up. We are the ones who will stand before Lord and be held accountable for the choices we made for our children.

Recently, myself and our daughters went to wearing skirts only. This has been a very positive change for our family. We've also found that we really don't need the TV! Crazy for me to say that as I love a good movie.

If you would have told me 6 months ago that my life would look like this I would have laughed at you! But, God is faithful and his desires will come to fruition. No matter how hard we fight it, God's way is the way that will lead to joy, blessings and contentment.
