|More About Our Family
|Our Special Interests|
We enjoy outdoor activities: hiking, snowshoeing, 4 wheeler, or snowmobiling. We like fishing and camping and have had the opportunity to go deep-sea fishing for halibut in our home state. We also desire to work in medical missions in areas where access to care is limited. We have friends who work in South America where medical care is needed and we could offer help to the local population. We also want to aid our own community by possibly starting our own medical practice and thus give more access to medical care.
Ruth believes that tasks are done as a family with everyone participating in whatever way they can as this not only builds life skills but grows family bonds. This is something we look forward to sharing with our child.
Faith is crucial to our daily lives. We believe because of Jesus' sacrifice, we need to live our lives as he would. We are called to love others and should do the best that we can to share his love with everyone we meet.
|Our Musical Interest|
Very varied! Music is a way to experience different cultures so we listen to music in many different languages. There is nearly always music playing in our home but it can be from folk, Christian, rock, classical, salsa, or oldies. Rob enjoys swing and big band music as he plays trombone. Ruth is more mellow and plays guitar. We want everyone in our home to learn to play a musical instrument as we feel that music is an important aspect of our lives.
|About Our Home|
Our current home is a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom house up in the hills outside of Fairbanks. We share it with 2 dogs. It is a beautiful and functional house but we are well aware that as our family grows, we will soon outgrow this house. When the time comes, we will likely either move or build a new home that better fits our family's needs; however, we plan to try to remain in the same area outside of the city.
