|More About Our Family
|Our Shared Interests|
Our personalities are very different, but we still have lots of things we love to do together:
-going to estate sales
Our Catholic faith is what defines our life. It is our faith that guides us in every decision we make, and it is also our faith that brings us joy and peace. We belong to a beautiful, traditional Catholic parish that is filled with young families with many children. Adoption is a cherished thing in our faith and particularly in our church, and many of our friends have also adopted children.
We are part of a small group of married couples that meets monthly to pray, reflect on scripture, and help each other in our faith journey. As part of this group, we have committed to also pray daily as individuals, pray daily as a married couple, and pray together daily as a family. Our son is only three, but he already knows several prayers, and we pray together daily before all meals, and at bedtime.
