Olivia is an ordained pastor, worship leader, writer, lover of chai tea lattes, wife of Nick, mother to Oliver, Ava, and a Spanish Water dog named Rue.
Ava Puccini, age 13, has spent her entire life overseas as a missionary kid. She loves playing hockey and soccer, being a part of theater productions, a bowl of good borsch soup, and watching episodes of real life emergency situations in the ER.
