Before getting married, David was a gifted student and college baseball player who was a three-time captain and eventually went on to coach college baseball. He is deeply loved and respected by all who know him and can get along with just about anyone.
After obtaining an MBA at a top business school, David has gone on to several business ventures. His passion is organizational development and training. We are blessed to have such a wonderful provider for our family so that Amanda can stay at home with our children and that we can provide the security and opportunities that we desire for our family.
Amanda is blessed to be a Homemaker and Stay-at-Home Mom. Outside of her routine mommy duties, she enjoys writing, singing, cooking, developing new recipes, decorating, traveling and reading.
Before getting married, Amanda had opportunities to travel and study abroad in Africa, the Middle East, Europe, Mexico and the Caribbean. She loves taking the lessons she learned from her travels and sharing them with her children as they dream and plan their own adventures. She feels blessed to be married to the Man she respects and adores most and equally blessed to be a Mother.
We both come from very large families. David has two sisters and a brother while Amanda has two sisters and four brothers. We are fortunate enough to have a large family with 11 nieces and nephews. Our family gets together often and the children all enjoy playing together. Holidays, birthdays and special occasions are best when spent with Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles and Cousins.
Our faith is central to where we have come from, the choices we have made, and the values that guide our decisions and perspectives. Our religion is not what we do, it's who we are.
Before getting married, both David and Amanda served full time missions for our church. Though our experiences in our prospective areas were different, the take away was the same. Each of us were left with a concrete desire to live a gospel centered life and serve others while sharing our love for God and all His children with the world. Our belief of a Loving Father and His perfect plan is the center of our Marriage, our Family and our Home. Our faith has only strengthened since Bennett's death. Any child that joins our family will inherit the Legacy of Faith that we have been given and will be taught from Day One that they are a valued, cherished and beloved Child of God.
