My wife is a considerate and selfless woman. She pays attention to what other people like so that she is ready to get their next birthday or Christmas present. She sends gifts to our extended family for their birthdays too. She spends lots of time counseling and giving people hope and encouragement to whoever needs it. Her passion is for people to know and love God and to help them live their lives according to the Bible. She loves being with kids so much. She has wanted to be a full-time mom as long as I can remember and has fully embraced that role with our four boys. She is an amazing cook, always preparing the meals for our family and for our small group at church. Every meal is excellent (except for that one time she undercooked the noodles for a new couple at our church! Oops! :-D). Our family will have many sweet memories because of her. One of my favorite memories is running through the rain with her in Venice, Italy to catch a gondola. She couldn’t keep up because she was laughing so hard. She takes pictures of fun moments with the kids and sends them to me while I’m at work. Sometimes they’re cute, sometimes embarrassing, but it’s always a joy to see what she is up to with our boys. I am so thankful to call Julie my wife.

My husband is a generous man who is ready to share with those in need. He is a hard worker and is very giving. He meets up with men at our church who want to be mentored because he cares deeply for people and is eager to see them love and obey God more. Evan loves the Lord and he is a faithful Bible teacher, who teaches the Bible to elementary age kids at church and to our children at home. His Bible story time at night for our children is entertaining because he is hilarious! There is nothing boring about how he teaches the Bible! He dresses up in costumes, puts on skits or puppet shows, all to make learning the Bible fun for kids. He is an amazing daddy! Evan takes our family on wonderful vacations and makes time each week to have family nights where we play games or watch movies. He is eager to help with homework and is patient when the kids have a question. Evan also loves taking the kids to the park and helping them ride their bikes. As a husband, he takes me on a fun date night out where we get to go to dinner and have ice cream! We always have a blast! I am so thankful to have him as my husband and the father to my kids!
