Ben and Brittany

Our family loves to laugh and have a lot of fun. We enjoy taking our family on vacations and traveling, but we also spending time together at home, cooking or grilling out and playing in our backyard. And we absolutely LOVE being parents – it is truly a joy. Our oldest daughters are twins and they just started school last year, so we actually instituted Family Fun Fridays where we pick a fun activity and spend time together after school to kickstart the weekend. Sometimes it’s just game night at home, other times it’s going to the movies. Sometimes we surprise the kids and go on fun trips, but the point is that we create fun and lasting memories together as a family. We also want to give our children unique opportunities that help them grow as individuals (sports, music lessons, horse back riding, etc)! The truth is, we love our kids so much and, like you, we want what’s best for them. It brings us so much joy to get to watch them thrive and grow into who God made them to be, and it’s our privilege to get to create a fun and safe home for them.

Ben is a hardworking and loving dad who brings fun and laughter to our family, and Brittany is a smart and warm mama who brings the love all the while keeping us running. But we aren’t only parents, we’re also best friends. We’ve been married since 2010 and after (almost) a decade of life together, we are so grateful for the highs and lows of life that have brought us together. We are each other’s biggest fans, and through the good, bad, and ugly we keep pushing the other to live a life that gives glory to God. That is ultimately what keeps our marriage strong. One motto in our family is “Teamwork makes the dream work,” so we try to model that with our marriage too! And we’re beyond thrilled to get to add another little one to our family team. Our whole crew is so excited (church family, cousins, aunties, uncles, and grandparents included!). We’ve been praying for so long, and we can’t wait to meet our next child and meet you as well.
