Our Children/Family

Dani, 20, loves music!  She sings and plays piano, flute, viola, and first violin in the family string quartet. She is also a Scripture memorizer extraordinaire!  Of nine years in The National Bible Bee, she has qualified for Nationals eight times. She also enjoyed the opportunity to write the scripts for our local Bible Bee’s dinner theater and Celebration Days play in 2015, 2016, and 2017.

Dani is a sophomore at Colorado Christian University, and God has blessed her by giving her an opportunity to play viola in the president’s string quartet. She is majoring in music production engineering and composition, and also has a spot in the choir.

Dani has worked at Gold Dredge 8 for three years (in the summer), and this year accepted a lead position!

Rachel, 17, loves animals – in particular, horses! She loves flying and copilots for Dad already.

Our resident funny bone, Rachel is  the one who sees things from the odd side and keeps us laughing. She plays second violin in the quartet.

Rachel is a senior in high school, and this year is taking a medical terminology class at one of our local schools. She is also playing cello in the school orchestra.

Rachel has also worked at Gold Dredge 8 for three years.

Christa, 14 (almost 15 as she likes to say), is often found raiding the library of wherever we find ourselves.  She plays viola for the quartet. She also loves animals, especially cats and dogs. We love her dorky sense of humor. 😉

Christa is a sophomore in high school, and is hoping to go into musical theater when she graduates. She is also hoping to follow in her sisters’ footsteps- working at the gold dredge next year! Mom and Dad aren’t quite sure about it, though.

Out of 9 years in the Bible Bee, Christa has qualified for Nationals 5 times.




Jared, 12, is all boy.  He likes to shoot the BB gun, and playing he’s a soldier. He plays the cello. Jared likes to read- especially by headlamp at night when he’s supposed to be asleep. He love hunting and fishing- very Alaskan! He was born at home in North Pole and likes to say that he is, therefore, an Eskimo.

Jared is in 7th grade.





Timothy, 4, is in preschool. It is amazing to watch him learn to write and count. This kiddo is now able to ride a bike- no training wheels! Timothy likes drawing, music, playing in the snow, and sledding with his siblings. He loves the cello. 🙂
