About Us

401069_10151660423924859_1931693798_nMy name is Beth and I live in the MidWest with my husband and four children and another child waiting for us in heaven.  We have a large goldendoodle dog and a small cat.  I’m 47 but tell my children I’m 30…one of these days, they’ll believe it and forget my true age!

MY BELIEFS:
I truly believe that God will take care of all our needs.
I believe that humor will get you a long way. If you can laugh at yourself, you can laugh at life.
I believe that being nice will not only make others appreciate you but make you appreciate yourself as a person.
I believe that having girlfriends in your life provides the sanity that we need as mothers and wives.

OUR FAMILY:
Kevin – Operations Supervisor for a logistics warehouse.  Good sense of humor, loves to grill and loves anything football.
Beth – Project Manager for a market research company, would rather be a stay-at-home mom. Loves craft projects, knitting and usually has several projects in the fire, although never do I get the time.
Samuel – 14yr old leader of the pack. Loves to play football and wrestling and plays the clarinet. Diagnosed with ADHD and ODD.  Very loud!
Caden – 12yr old independent thinker.  Also loves to play football and wrestling.  Likes to figure out how things work and is content in being alone!
Isabella – 9yr old bundle of BIG personality.  Bosses her older brothers around as none other. Currently into singing/active/dancing in the community children’s theater and loves to draw.
Evelyn — Baby of the crew and at 7 years old, is the loudest and sassiest!  Is the cuddler of the bunch and still loves hugs and kisses.  Enjoys being a girl scout and soccer.
Audrey — Our Angel in heaven.  Born in 2001 with Trisomy 18, she only lived 10 days.  Although she is not here with us in our earthly world, I cannot wait to be with her again in our heavenly world.
