Cast of Characters

Meet the Fam!  
(also posted on the "Family" tab above)

This is John and I (Marissa) a couple years ago before life got "really" crazy.   We strive to serve Christ and each other to the best of our ability.  The trials we've faced in the first four years (has it really ONLY been four years?) has proven only to strengthen our love as we've learned to hold each other up through the days that simply don't make any sense.

Our first addition was Emerson Grace (Emma)--affectionately known as Punkin'.  She is full of spunk and passionate for life--seriously, the girl gets crazy excited over the smallest things.  Her current faves are her daddy and Dora. Love her to pieces...

Next is Jordan.  She was delivered from my body straight to heaven at 13 weeks on September 8, 2008.  God proved Himself faithful and showed us that in ALL things, He could be trusted.

I had thought Jordan would be the greatest of our heartaches.  Meet Malachi.  Cutest little CHARGE kiddo you'll ever have the privilege of knowing.  His story and his fighting spirit captivated hundreds around the world.  He died at 7-months-old in May 2010.  Our desire is to make Christ known through Malachi's life, suffering, and death.

Last but not least, this is our newest stunning member--Jackson Nehemiah!  We cannot get enough of this kid.  At the moment, he is the easiest baby you'll ever see.  Good eater, good sleeper, overall great demeanor--not to mention he smiles ALL. THE. TIME! He will be 1 on 11-11-11.  How cool is that!?!


  1. A beautiful family full of love! Thank you for sharing so much with all of us!
