What is your favorite bible verse or biblical truth?
Roger – Gensis 18:15 “But Sarah denied it, saying, “I did not laugh,” for she was afraid. He said, “No, but you did laugh.”

Cherith – Romans 8:28 “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.”

Roger is from Atlantic City, NJ and Cherith is from Phillipsburg, NJ. We moved here when we got married because Roger was managing his own retail shop. We’ve both been able to work remotely since then.

What is your favorite childhood memory?
Roger – Cooking. I loved going through my mom’s dusty cookbooks in our attic, watching food network, and pretending I had my own show every time I thought I was a genius for adding “seasoning salt” or bacon to something

Cherith – Fishing at a family reunion using bamboo fishing poles. Once the fish bites you yank it out of the water!

What is your favorite app on your phone today, and why?
Instagram: We’ve turned our puppy into a little celebrity and love posting her cute pics!

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten? Did you like it?
Cherith – Snake fruit. It was interesting, I didn’t hate it, it was like an apple but I appreciate apples much more.

Roger – Fish eyes. I’m addicted now and thankfully I never have to fight for it when the opportunity comes.
