We met in college...
...and we've been inseparable ever since. We're parents to four, homeschoolers, and we share a simple desire to be like Jesus. We're Ron and Alison Ott.
Ron: Last year, I discovered that I had contracted a severe illness from a tick bite, the symptoms of which were crippling. The following week Alison nearly died from a blood infection. Paradoxically, I felt at peace during the resulting period of utter helplessness as God used these hardships to prepare us for a different and unexpected chapter of our life together.
Alison: Before we married, we somehow overlooked one crucial conversation: children. I wanted a large family, a minimum of four kids. I assumed Ron would, too. I mean, who doesn't want kids? I found out months after our wedding day that my sweet husband had absolutely no desire for kids. Ever. But God changes hearts, and he blessed us with four beautiful children. And we thought we were done... Did I mention that God changes hearts?
