Get to know us!

Sunday, June 9, 2019

Hi! We’re Mike and Beth! We thought we would take a minute and answer some questions so you can get to know us better. We are an active and outdoorsy couple and we can’t wait to grow our family. 

If you want to know something about us, we didn’t answer here, feel free to leave us your questions in the comments. 

1. What is your favorite thing to do in your spare time? 

Mike: Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and spend time with my family.

Beth: Spending time with my family. I also love to run, hike, and travel. It’s always my favorite when I can do any of those things with my family. 

2. If you were stranded on a deserted island, what one item would you bring?

Mike: A satellite phone

Beth: Probably a multipurpose tool. 

3. What is something spectacular you have done? 

Mike: Becoming a father. It has challenged me in the best way possible. A close second: I received my masters degree in clinical mental health counseling. It took a lot of work and was difficult.

Beth: I would agree about becoming a mother; especially during a worldwide pandemic. My close second: I ran a marathon a few years ago. It was the hardest thing I’ve ever done physically...and mentally. It taught me so much about perseverance and the strength I have within. 

4. What is “home” to you? 

Mike: Wherever my family is. 

Beth: My first home is Utah, but it’s anywhere with Mike and Barrett. Arizona was our home for a while and it will always have a place in my heart. 

5. If you could travel anywhere right now, where would it be? 

Mike: Camping or anywhere outside. 

Beth: Tanzania. Hands down. I can’t wait until we get to visit. I want to do a safari and would love to stay at Taasa Lodge. 

6. Who would you love to have dinner with, dead or alive, and why? 

Mike: One of the founding fathers or an ancient king from the 1300s. It would be interesting to hear about their lives. 

Beth: That’s a hard one. Maybe a pioneer. Their faith and perseverance is so incredible! I would love to hear their stories from crossing the plains and the persecution they experienced. 

7. If your house was burning down and you could only save one item, what would it be? 

Mike: My wallet, assuming Beth, Barrett and hendo are out. 

Beth: If I was thinking practically, I would grab our important documents file. If not, my camera bag (it has all of my memory cards!) and all of this is assuming Barrett and hendo are out! 

8. What profession are you in and how did you choose it? 

Mike: Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I was inspired by my grandma, but I also found psychology classes to be inspiring and desired to pursuing it all the way. 

Beth: Social Work! I started in Child Welfare in 2014 and truly believe it’s where I need to be. It is so difficult, but it is important work. I get to use several of my skills and it’s different every day! 

9. What’s your favorite food? Savory and dessert. 

Mike: General Tso’s Chicken and cheesecake. 

Beth: Hamburgers and root beer floats. 

10. How would your best friends describe you? 

Mike: Driven and encouraging.

Beth: Introverted, but likes to have fun. I will always say yes to family. 

11. What are some traditions you would like to continue in your own family?

Mike: Being outside, especially camping and hiking in the summer and visiting all of the National Parks together. 

Beth: One thing we love doing is picking out an ornament anytime we travel. Curry Sunday with my family, our Christmas traditions: getting a book on Christmas Eve, seeing a movie on Christmas Eve, sleeping under the Christmas tree, etc. 

12. What are you most grateful for?

Mike: That I have people in my life that care about me. 

Beth: My family, employment, home, and freedom.
