Welcome to the Party of Six! My name is Kelly. I have been married to Jason for 18 years and our story goes all the way back to middle school, which is just weird now that we have middle schoolers. We are the proud parents to four children: Parker, Emery, Bradley and Judson. We gave up the dream of the quiet ,simple life in exchange for the reality of loud, lively and bold living, as a larger family. You will read about our journey as followers of Jesus, our role as parents trying to raise world-changers, and our passion for the Bride of the Christ…the Church.
For four years, I worked as an adoption social worker and after assisting hundreds of families in the process, we entered into the adoption journey. In 2012, we brought our son, Judson, home from Ethiopia. As adoptive parents, we hope to give you a glimpse of the beauty that comes from brokenness and the joy of watching redemption come right before your eyes. We also share how we tackle the hard issues of raising a child of a different race.
We also believe in being strategic and creative in leading our children to know Christ and serve His Kingdom. One result is our creation of the ministry Family Muscle. We share how we are trying to live missionally and intentionally reach those far from God.
We have written the monthly Family Time feature in HomeLife magazine, which focuses on a themed family night built around Scripture.
Thanks for taking the time to read and connect. Enjoy!
