We are a Messianic family living in beautiful Colorado. We began our marriage adventure in 2004 and it has been a crazy ride ever since! We have seven little ones with us here in olam ha-zeh (Jaelah, Selah, Chavah, Hosannah, Noah, Ketziah, and Tirzah) and one little one (Joshua) awaiting us in olam ha-ba. We love God first and foremost. In everything, we endeavor to please Him. We believe that Yeshua is the Messiah, the Son of God, and by His shed blood we receive atonement for our sins. We also believe that He fulfilled the Torah (Law) of God specifically in paying the death penalty required because we have all broken the Law; He did not abolish it or do away with it. Instead, we can see the essence of Him in every page of the Old Testament and the New Testament. We pursue a Torah-submissive lifestyle as a “walking out” of our faith and gratitude for His gift of salvation as well as a love for His ancient paths. We worship as a family on the biblical Shabbat (Sabbath), Saturday. As a family, we celebrate the biblical festivals: Pesach (Passover), Ha Matzot (Unleavened Bread), Ha Bikkurim (First Fruits), Shavuot (Pentecost), Yom Teruah (Festival of Trumpets), Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement), and Sukkot (Festival of Booths). We also celebrate Purim, which is a civic holiday commemorating the bravery of Queen Esther’s intercession for her people. And what Jewish year would be complete without Hanukkah (Festival of Lights)?
