The 3rd Musketeer. Growing up with 2 older brothers made you TOUGH. We’d often see you run down the driveway after your brothers, fall down, and get right back up, oblivious to the fact that both your knees were bleeding! You had your goal in mind. Nothing was going to stop you, and that’s how you’ve lived your life ever since! From Little League baseball, ready at 6:30am to play your noon game, to now … out the door early Sundays to meet your accountability partner, you are ALL IN. Your humor, warmth and heart humble us.  We’re proud of you and excited to see where God takes you next. We love you, Mom and Dad.


You have amazed us since the day you were born.  We have been blessed over and over, seeing the Lord work in your life.  Your servant heart, kindness, creativity, ingenuity, and warm personality are all beautiful works of the Holy Spirit.  We have prayed and continue to pray that the Lord would always be first in your life, that you would fall deeper in love with Him and His Word every day, that He would be your Satisfaction and your Hope.  May God use you for His glory in every season of your life!


Raising you has been something akin to riding a bucking bronco bareback. But, goodness, God has been faithful to grow and stretch us all in more ways than we can count. We love your determination, passion, and spirit, at least most days, and have been thankful to have a front row seat as you’ve taken on your education, work and sports. Always stand firm, knowing to Whom you belong.

“The LORD your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior.  He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.” Zeph. 3:17
