​Welcome to the Family

Welcome to the family...


What do we really mean by this tagline?  Well, we are welcoming you, our guests, into our home here on the web.  When people visit us at the physical structure in which we live, we want them to truly feel welcomed and uplifted by the members of our family. Such is what we also hope you will feel here at our web home.

Let's talk about family.  Our family happens to be made up of the two of us and our eight children.  We have been married to one another for well over two decades and are biological parents to all our children.   We realize that not every family has the same dynamics as ours.  However, we feel that the basic principles of what can work well for “traditional” families like ours can also work for single parent families, families with step parents, grandparents as parents, families that have cousins as siblings and other family make-ups.  We love and know many successful single parent families and successful families that have varying family blends.  


Here are eight tenets that we feel can be a good starting ground upon which to build a successful family

The father and the mother have a marriage based in love.

Childrenare provided for and taught well.

Family member roles are clearly defined yet also shared.

The family works together

The family plays together.
