I am a Christian, striving to 'glorify God and to enjoy Him forever.'

I have quite the family. I have ten siblings - five sisters and two sisters-in-law, five brothers and three brothers-in-law, seven nephews and six nieces. On September 9th, 2006, Bryan and I were married. To add once again to the family numbers, our first child, Symeon Peter William, was born July 29th, 2007. Our second child, Verity Joy Cristina, was born January 20, 2009. Our third child, Raynier Paul Dominic, was born October 14, 2010.

My family is wonderful, and I think a lot of them. I give you

2005 marked a milestone in my life; I met and fell in love with a Man who has far surpassed everything I have ever wished for in a Husband. January 26, 2006 was another milestone, as we officially began courtship, and began to plan our life together, and on April 26th he finally asked me to marry him. I said yes. God has done something in my life I did not think possible. He has taken my great happiness and contentment with life and increased it far beyond my imagination. On September 9, 2006, we became a family.

I am from the US and have been in six countries (The USA, Canada, England, Kenya, Tanzania and New Zealand) and in 10 states (Idaho, Washington, Oregon, Montana, North Dakota, Minnisota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Nevada and California) and have lived for more than six months in three states and two foreign countries. I have either been in, or flown over every ocean. Although I grew up in the Pacific Northwest, I hadn't been in the Pacific ocean until I visited New Zealand for the first time in 2006. I have also been in the Indian ocean.
