About me

Industry Non-Profit
Occupation Student @Moody_Bible, Ministry Leader @CourageMajority, Entrepreneur @getSimpleBox & @DutchMothers, Blessed with a great family @Home.
Introduction Ross was raised in British Columbia, Canada and moved to Lynden, WA with his family as a teenager. Taya was born and raised in Lynden, WA. We met in high school, and were married shortly after Taya finished studies at Western Baptist College in 1999. We have been blessed with 3 precious boys- Isaiah, Elijah, & Judah. We are small business owners (Simple Box Storage http://getSimpleBox.com) and had the privilege to serve as full-time missionaries for 5 years. We still feel a call to full-time ministry, but most of all we are called to love and follow Jesus.
