My name is Laurie and I will soon be 27 years old. I am originally from North Alabama but moved a little further down south in 2002 to attend college at Jacksonville State University. College was a fun time (isn't it usually??) and I loved being a part of my sorority, Alpha Omicron Pi. I am now an alumnae advisor for AOII. I will graduate JSU (again) this summer with my Masters degree in Elementary Education. I am in my third year of teaching fifth grade at a wonderful elementary school and enjoy my 22 children who are very dear to my heart.

Jon is 33 years old and is back in school to complete his accounting degree. After working in the construction industry for ten years, Jon was ready for a change. It was a tough decision to go back to school, but after lots of prayer we both felt this was God's will. He is a wonderful husband and daddy who has lots of hobbies, such as Auburn football, working on jeeps and catching up with the DVR.

Grace is our pride and joy! She will turn two on June 30. If I had to use just three words to describe her, I would say loud, spunky and sweet. She is such a mix of the two of us. We are so thankful to God for letting us be her parents and hope that He will continue to grow our family one day.

How we met...
