Our Family

Our family began when we were married on January 29, 2005. It grew when Ayden was born (February 5, 2009) and exploded with energy when Judah was born (September 28, 2010). 

Jaymi does most of the writing on this blog. Luke chimes in here and there. Ayden and Judah work together to provide endless cute stories for Mama to write about. 

We're presently in the process of seeking God's plan for our future (you can go here to see all of the posts that are related to our hopes for Rwanda). At the moment, we have no clue what the future holds; not even an illusion of knowing. Our expectation is that God can do with us whatever He wants, whenever He wants. Meanwhile, we are settling in Chicago and know that this is where God wants us right now. 

Look here, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we are going to a certain town and will stay there a year. We will do business there and make a profit.” How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog—it’s here a little while, then it’s gone. What you ought to say is, “If the Lord wants us to, we will live and do this or that.” 
~James 4:13-15 (NLT)
