We are a deeply committed couple in our 30's, and the parents of five precious children on a radical journey to get out of debt, build our faith, our family and our home on 11 1/2 acres of land in the hills of beautiful, Southwest Virginia. Our desire is to use our lives and our resources to encourage others. Sometimes the journey is incredible, sometimes it seems impossible. Here you can read about both because such is life...
These photo's were taken at Ben and Shelley Harris's wedding reception earlier this summer. It was so beautiful! Ben and Shelley rode in on a horse to the barn their reception was held at and gave their testimony about how God brought them together a little later in life, rather than sooner. They have such a great story! As you can see, Our kids had a blast! Grace was starry eyed and kept telling everyone that Shelley was a princess (wondering if I might have a little girl as excited about marriage and family as I was:-).
Unbeknownst to us, Isaac had brought his cell phone (my old one) to show his friends:-)

Daniel and I were part of a house church for the first 3 years of our marriage called "Trading Church" that Ben's family was also a part of. Ben was a little older than Daniel and Bethany about a year younger than me. We always greatly admired their family and the others in the home fellowship. We were able to establish some lifelong friends during that 3 years! Below are some of the old "Trading Church Girls" Left to right: Myself, Kimmy Bears, Bev Taylor and Bethany Harris. I love these 3 girls dearly!

The lovely Bride and Groom of the Evening! Ben and Shelley
