Samuel was born in 1999, right before Y2K (for those who remember that ). He is our percussionist. He loves to serve the Lord in any way that he can. The Lord has given him a great sense of humor and a gift for easily striking up conversation, even with people he doesn’t know.
Jacob was born 12 1/2 months after Samuel (our closest babies so far). He is our family comedian. When he is not making someone laugh you can often find Jacob reading his Bible and he loves giving out gospel tracts. God has given Jacob a great sensitivity towards others feelings.

Josiah was born in 2008. He is the only son in our family without a brother born directly before or after him. Josiah enjoys wrestling with his older brothers, and is saving his coins to buy a camper some day with which to do ministry on the road.
Will was born in 2013. He loves helping with the bus and pretending with one of his toy trucks to do everything that his dad and Adin do with the bus. He is very thoughtful of others. When he gets to do something (have a snack, or go to the store with mom or dad) he always asks if one or more of his siblings can do that too.
Ben was born in 2014. He is the biggest of our babies at birth so far and continues to be a robust young chap. He loves music and loves to clap and do motions to songs. He also loves throwing rocks into rivers, lakes or oceans…really, just any body of water will do.
