|More About Our Family
|Our Typical Week|
During the week, we tend to stay home and spend time as a family once we get off work. Nichele will cook dinner while Josh takes our dog, Luke, for a walk or helps clean up around the house. Then, in the evenings we will play a game together or watch a TV show or movie. On the weekends, we spend most of our time with our close friends, who are like our family. The majority of our friends have kiddos themselves and can't wait to help love and raise our child with us!
We are both extremely grateful to have been raised up in Christian homes. Our Christianity is incredibly important to us and it's not just something we do, it's who we are. Because of the hope we have in Jesus, we love others fiercely, seek out God's will continually, and are involved in the lives of those in our community. We love the non-denominational church that Nichele works at, and our church family is so supportive and excited to help us raise our child to know the love of Jesus.
|Our Musical Interest|
As you can probably tell by now, music is one of the things that bonds us together. Not only do we both love a wide variety of music styles, but we also love to play music together. Nichele leads worship every week at our church. She is able to sing and play guitar and keys. Josh volunteers for the worship team each week where he plays acoustic guitar, electric guitar, and drums. Josh also is a talented singer and has even written Nichele a song when they first started dating!
