Mom and Dad:
Dad is the Senior Pastor at Manchester Community Church
Mom is a full time mother and teacher of our homeschool
Now graduated from his seminary in Wisconsin, Andrew is finishing an internship in Boston and hopes to move back this way in order to plant churches in the suburbs of Seattle.
Now married to the love of her life, Jesse Divakar, she is getting used to only having two people in her new home in Georgia.
Our resident musician extraordinaire, this young lady has completed her bachelor's degree in music and is currently teaching piano lessons to several families within our area.
Rebekah (age 19):
Yes, this is me, I'm the fourth born. I am working on writing stories I have begun and never had time to finish, as well as college and my new job as a nanny of two precious girls. :)
Our newest high school graduate, Max is probably the most athletic person in our family, closely followed by David. His favorite sport is football, but he'll give anything a try if someone is willing to give him some pointers.
David (age 15):
This young man is the one who can always bring laughter into our lives with a never ending supply of jokes. But despite his love of fun, he can always be depended on if we need a job done well.
After discovering her inner love of creation, she has become one of the best artists in our family. Her current passion is drawing and molding (from clay) characters from the Lord of the Rings series and Star Wars.
She loves spending time romping outside with friends and younger siblings almost as much as she loves burying herself in a good book. Also, the proud owner of an adorable cat named Mouser.
A young brainiac who knows too much for his own good. As terrible as he is at remembering names and faces, he is surprisingly good at making up his own games and remembering odd facts about birds and anything else that holds his current interest.
Samuel (age 8):
This boy would gladly spend all day looking at bugs, birds, and interesting plants outside if we let him. Otherwise, he might be found shooting a dart gun or playing a board game with William
Special Thanks to Amber Coolidge for taking these photos! :)
