About Me

My photo

We are an Army family! Miles was diagnosed with Autism at the age of 6 and he is now 15 years old. Marley is Miles' Autism Service Dog and his best friend. This dynamic duo has been together for 5 years and look forward to many more adventures! 

For God has not given us a spirit of fearfulness, but one of power, love and sound judgement.

NO OTHER NAME
We enjoy supporting this Christian music group 
because they have such a heart for missions….

for there is no other name under heaven
given among men by which we must be saved."
Acts 4:12
