We are two 21 year olds who are in their first year of marriage. We love Jesus Christ and want everything we do to be lived for Him and His glory! By Hi grace, we have both been saved and are grateful to Him for everything that we have. We did not deserve his mercy and yet He bestowed it upon us. As His children we desire to live our lives in complete and total gratitude and love toward our wonderful Saviour. Sometimes that means we have to be counter-cultural, like when we got married at the age of 20 when the rest of the world says, “Live your own life, have fun and wait to settle down.” Or when we decided to place having children in God’s capable and all-knowing hands and let Him decide when we would get pregnant. The rest of the world tells us to wait and have fun as a couple and calls babies and children a burden. Life isn’t always easy, but we always have Someone to get us through, Who gives us the grace to get through each day, no matter how difficult. Praise God for His undeserved mercy and goodness to us!
Aaron is the most wonderful husband in the world! (That’s his primary job.) After that, he’s a computer programmer and consultant for Sogeti. He now sports a beard as well (at the request of his wife)! He enjoys learning about God and Who He is, as well as the deeper aspects of theology. Aaron loves hiking and being outdoors alone. Aaron enjoys discussing theology with friends as well as laughing and joking about many things. Aaron and I have friends that are scattered all over the country, so sometimes we take a trip and go see them. Aaron and I both have very eclectic musical tastes and so we listen to a variety of Christian genres.
And here I am. My job? Aaron’s helpmeet and homemaker, which in my opinion is the absolute BEST job in the entire world! I also found out not too long ago that I am pregnant, so another role will be added to my life: that of a mommy! Beyond that, I am a student with CollegePlus! and a violin teacher. I am very excited about the arrival of Pixie and know that I have lots of decisions to make before that day! Before June 12, or whenever Pixie decides to arrive, I am going to finish school so that I don’t have to worry about that and a baby! I am adopted and I know my birthparents. They are wonderful and love them very much. I came from a large family, and I am the oldest of twelve children, ten of whom (including me) are adopted. The other nine are all adopted from Russia. Aaron and I are hoping to adopt at some point, but most countries like the parents to be married for several years before pursuing adoption. So we are waiting patiently for that time!
And here is our baby girl, Mocha Almond Fudge. She’s 1 year old and 25 pounds. She loves her peoples!
