the okken family.

This family is one of the best. They've become like a second family to me here in Edmonton and have been such a huge part of why I've come to love this city of mine and feel at home in this prairie land! Christine and Terry started off as my mentors and leaders once I joined my church's youth ministry team and served under their pastoral leadership as a volunteer. I have been so incredibly blessed by this family's love for God, the way they serve and lead in the communities they're invested in, and the way that they love and grow together as a family. Seriously, words cannot express how deeply I care for and respect this family :) Also, their kids are kind of the best and super awesome to hang out with and their youngest is practically a mini-version of my husband (they're two peas in a pod and complete mischief makers...), so what's not to love?!

So without further ado, I present to you one of the best families in Edmonton (no bias, seriously, they're just the best).
