Jared & Becca
– California –
We are Jared and Becca from Southern California! We have two children, a six year old daughter, Kenley, and a three year old son, Elijah. While there is a lot that we could say, the most important part of our lives is that we are Christians. Our faith in Jesus is what sets the foundation for everything else that we do. Jared works full time from home and I was a middle school teacher for nine years before resigning to stay home with our children. We love to be outside in nature, we purpose and enjoy to be engaged in our church family and community, we like to experience new adventures and connect with people.
We own a four bedroom home in southern California and we have lived in our home for seven years. Each of our children have their own bedrooms and the new baby will have their own room as well. We have a good sized front yard, a backyard with a large playset and toys, and an open concept for our main living spaces in the dining room and living room. We are right next to a middle school, and we have really, sweet wonderful neighbors. We have quite a few children who live near us and a lot of diversity in our neighborhood.
Our home is also less than an hour from the snowy mountains during winter and the sunny beaches year round. We have easy, close access to multiple playgrounds, theme parks, museums, zoos, and kids play places.
The baby's new room has been freshly painted and we recently put in the furniture- a brand new crib, dresser, and cube storage piece. We look forward to decorating it with a colorful rug, fabric cube storage boxes, crib sheets, and so on. We can’t wait to put new clothes in the drawers, books on the shelves and toys in the bins that will be in there. This room has been planned for and prayed over and we are so looking forward to the sweet baby that will have this room as their own.
We are very involved at our church, and since we spend a lot of time with them, we think they are important to mention! Jared serves at our church as the Generations Pastor, and so we oversee the youth and the young adult ministries. Both our youth group and our young adult ministry meet at our home for bible study and fellowship each week. We also enjoy doing community service projects with them and we enjoy doing life together- helping each other through challenges, helping people when they’re moving, attending each other’s children’s birthday parties and so on. They are extremely important to us and a significant part of our lives!
