Kelly and her husband, Brad, have five beautiful children: Jesse, Asher, Maverick, Remington, and Cabella. Kelly has the privilege of homeschooling them and she enjoys every (ok, not every) moment. In 2011, God called Kelly and her family to move from Minnesota to Texas. So, they sold half of their belongings, packed up their five kids, and moved across the country. Moving away from family was hard, but God has been faithful. Kelly enjoys spending time with her family, shopping, going for walks, and watching NASCAR (Go Kyle!).
