Happy Holidays

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to your family!  We hope that this year has been full of blessings for you.  We have seen God at work in our lives in a lot of ways this year.  Stephanie was blessed to work with kids in a few capacities this last year.  She was a teacher’s assistant at the Fish Pond Preschool, a Mother’s Helper to a family of 7 we know from church, a nursery worker for Classical Conversations School, and continued to serve with Mars Hill Kids.  All of these were positive and challenging experiences, and she is grateful to have had the opportunity to impact the lives of all the kids.  Brandon began a job with Mars Hill Church as Property Manager this last year.  This role has been very rewarding, and brought many new challenges each day.  Brandon loves working with his brothers and sisters in Christ, on mission for Jesus!  We saw a lot of growth in our church Community Group this year.  We are so blessed with true friends that we can enjoy doing life with, and who have supported and prayed for us through this season of our life.  Recently, we moved to Renton, WA and have enjoyed making friends in our new neighborhood.   Our biggest excitement for the year was welcoming our first child, Julie Mae!  Stephanie had a healthy, enjoyable pregnancy, which we praised God for greatly!  Julie arrived on December 6th, 2012, weighing 9 lbs and 20 inches long.  We have enjoyed spending the holiday season as a new family and adjusting to life together.  It has been a year full of many blessings for us.  We are continually amazed at and grateful for how God pours out his grace upon grace on us!  Happy Holidays from Brandon, Stephanie, and Julie
