We are the proud parents of three energetic, fun-loving little boys. Parenthood can be difficult, even at the best of times, and we are so thankful to be with a community of believers at Candlewood Church.
- We have peers in the same stage of life that can mutually encourage and laugh (or cry) with us about the craziness, fullness and busyness of life with small children.
- There are families with older children who have gone before us that can offer wisdom in navigating these early years of parenting.
- There are young couples with no children yet that reflect to us the importance of investing in our marriage and not getting lost in all the diapers and sleepless nights.
- We have college students and young professionals who are so full of life and passion for Jesus that it encourages us to keep moving forward in our faith.
We strongly believe that we need to be in community with other believers. Throughout the years, God has taught us the importance of “planting our flag” with a local body of believers. As we try to raise boys who will be men that follow Jesus, it’s even more important to stay in fellowship.
Candlewood has been an amazing “home” to us over the years, and we are so thankful to be a part of this church family that has helped us stay connected with others, be built up & challenged in our faith, helped our prayer life, shown us how to share the Good News of Christ’s salvation with others, and has been a tremendous aid to our marriage and family.
