Story: Dan and Erica grew up in Champaign, IL and met in high school. They were both turned to Jesus in 1997 while undergrads—Dan at Illinois State University and Erica at the University of Illinois. In 2000 they graduated, married, and moved to St. Louis where Dan taught high school history among at risk students and Erica completed her Master’s in Physical Therapy from Washington University, topping this off with finishing up her doctorate in 2012.
Life: We and our kids (Alex, Gabriel, and Isabel) are a bit eclectic. We love craw-dad hunting in Jackson Creek, and we love “Pizza N’ Movie Night.” We love Bach at the symphony, and biscuits and gravy at the City Diner. We love pushing ourselves athletically, yet love French Fries. Our entire family loves books, yet we also love Wii Olympics. We love old houses, and new kitchens. And, I love writing looonnng sentences. You can find me on my bike out in the hills of Monroe County.
More than anything, God has given us a love for Jesus, His church, and for people.
