Meet the Smith’s!
Hey y’all! We’re glad you dropped in to get to know us. Josiah and I (Mackenzie) have been married since August 2018 and life has been filled with adventures since then. We began our life together in Orange County, California but relocated to Columbus, Ohio where we currently live. Mackenzie works at a college as an advisor for students seeking to get a jump start on their college education while Josiah works at a local church as a youth pastor. Working in youth ministry is one of our greatest joys in life. Our time is often spent going to sports events to support our students, grabbing coffee with teens to catch up on life, hosting families in our home for dinner, and running events at the church. Working in ministry is something we both dreamed of doing and it’s a continual evidence of God’s kindness in our lives that we get to play the role we do at our church.
When we’re not hanging with teens or spending time at the church, you can find us at local coffee shops (Josiah is a bit of a coffee aficionado), looking up good places to hike and camp, or enjoying a walk around the neighborhood with our chunky bulldog, Stella.
Josiah and I are incredibly excited to be parents and can’t wait to grow our family through adoption. God placed a passion for adoption into both of our hearts and we are overjoyed to finally be at a point in our lives to pursue adoption for our family!
