Our Story

Once upon a time...

Just kidding. Our story is no Cinderella fairytale, but it is our fairytale.

Nathan and I met at church when I was way underage and had a huge crush on a college kid (don't try this at home). For whatever reason, I knew at age 16 that I was going to marry that man...he just needed to catch up with my plan. ;) 

We started officially dating when I was a sophomore in college (I was attending Abilene Christian University) and at the end of that school year I transferred back home to Houston, TX because that's where Nathan was working. We got engaged June 5, 2009 and got married May 21, 2010. I finished college at the University of Houston with a degree in Math Education. I eventually graduated in May 2012 and in August 2012 we moved to West Point, GA so Nathan could be the Youth Pastor at a local church here. I have done a few odds and ends jobs (including teaching math for 3 years) but nothing compares to my job as Bennett's mom.

Bennett James was born September 22, 2015 at 2:02 a.m., and he changed our lives for the best. He was 9 lbs 10 oz and 23 inches long. He was/is a BIG boy. In fact, I told the nurse that she needed to reweigh him. Childbirth ain't for the faint of heart, ladies. It's hard. Real hard. It's emotional and beautiful. But I wouldn't trade the outcome for anything. 

So here we are. This is our family. We do not claim to be perfect, but we do love Jesus and each other. 

I hope you'll stay awhile.
