New Turbo 25 on LIFE Team
Brian and Amy Christian came into the information LIFE offers with two children, a mortgage, a home improvement loan, a car payment, a truck payment, a camper payment, and a Great Dane. They both came from bigger families and were told to get good grades, graduate college, and get a good job and you will be great! They had a good marriage, but were not able to spend time together due to their careers and everything else they juggled. Brian has worked for a water conditioning company for over 20 years, since he was a teenager. He found his passion working as a paid on call firefighter. He served on boards for the department and was a firefighter of the year. Amy worked with delinquent youth and individuals with disabilities to help them obtain employment. She served on many community committees, local chambers of commerce and was a big sister for Big Brothers/Big Sisters. Amy was openly looking for another way of life! Daily she would cry going to work after dropping off her kids at daycare. Amy was contacted by an old coworker and Dan and Lisa Hawkins showed her this idea. She jumped at it! Brian was not as excited, but wanted to support her.
They said the impact the LIFE business has had on their family is beyond measure. Every single part of their lives has been touched by this information. They continue to grow everyday in their faith, marriage, relationships and parenting. They are down a home improvement loan, a car payment, a truck payment, a camper payment, and a Great Dane, and have added a 7-year-old Labrador. Amy is home schooling their children and they have lunch with Brian everyday.
Their son Nash states, “The biggest rewards from LIFE are that his Dad and Mom are working together to help other people. Even though they have to leave us with a babysitter sometimes; it is worth it!” He feels having Mom at home and home schooling are the best. Nash love to write the names of the people that we are helping up on our patio door.
Maren, their daughter, thinks that the biggest blessing is Jesus Christ in their lives. She loves that her family all worked together to hit their goal. She liked calling her Dad and telling him each person they helped get this information on the way toward hitting their goal.
Amy said, “As a family we talked about our goal everyday and what the schedule was, so that we all knew what our roles. Once you get principle-based thinking in your head and in your family culture, the family unit becomes so strong.”
Brian and Amy feel it is their calling to bring back strong families to our nation. We see them constantly growing, serving their team, their community and individuals who they know in whatever areas that they can. Their family had a goal to hit in order to a hotel and indoor water park, and they did it! The faith and perseverance to run together no matter how long or what it took to hit this goal tells us that this family is on track to live out their calling and lead many others to do the same. At a time when our nation needs it most and in a situation where they could have chosen to leave well enough alone, the Christians chose to stand up and lead. We are thankful for their example and achievements, and excited for what is to come.
