Who can find a virtuous wife? For her worth is far above rubies. The heart of her husband safely trusts her so he will have no lack of gain. She does him good and not evil all the days of her life. Proverbs 31:10-12 NKJV
Rubies: They are the most rarest and precious gemstones in the world! To find a twenty-caret ruby is unusual and brings the much higher price per carat than diamonds!
God exquisitely designed two multifaceted young ladies for our sons. Jeff met his wife, Nikki at Branson Tourism where both were employed. Her pleasant personality emanated from God within to her fellow workers and guests, putting all at ease. Working as a teacher in a Christian preschool, previously, endeared her to children of all ages. Her stepdaughter, Jessi, became a welcomed member of their wedding party. After hearing of a homeless couple with two children, she and Jeff adopted their one year old daughter. Now fostering her two-year old brother, hopes are high also for his adoption. Nikki is also a nanny to another little guy the same age. Christ through her is illuminated in all she does.
Chris met his wife, Lindsay, at Evangel University where she graduated as an English major. She became a world traveler to Russia during this time, as well, where she taught English to a group of young people one summer. After teaching high school, she became a homeschooling Mom for their three daughters. Birthed within Lindsay and shared with Chris, was a desire to host a young lady through New Horizons for Children over Christmas. After three trips to Latvia as prospective parents, this sweet, young teenage girl became theirs in adoption. Beautifully prepared while waiting for their new sister with little anxiety, were three younger sisters who enthusiastically welcomed her into the Hill family. Lindsay emanated with the love of God at home and abroad.
Both sons treasure these wives. designed by God, for them. Priceless is their value!
