The Heritage Ways Family

Once upon a time a freshman college girl met a high school senior boy and now there is Heritage Ways.

Yep, time does fly just about that quickly. Boy, oh boy!

Mr. Patient has a heart for his God and his family. He really is a Family Man.
After many years in the corporate world, he now spends his time with the family, always involving the children in home projects. He knows how to do **so much** around the house because he had a good Daddy to teach him. Blacksmithing, wooden spoon carving and planning our future are his hobbies. He has a lot of irons in the fire.

Mrs. Katie is a busy keeper at home. (Is there such a thing as an idle keeper at home?) A long list of occupations brings her to this point in life where she lifeschools the kiddos, bakes bread, stirs stew, mends clothes, encourages women, makes videos and maybe a couple of other things.

All of our “Big Boys” are followers of Jesus, homeschool graduates and lovers of family.

Our oldest son, Trev, serves in the US Army and loves his wife and children to the ends of the earth. He is full of compassion, peace and consideration for everyone whose paths he crosses. His mechanical mind has provided all sorts of career paths and opportunities. His wife, Amber, is kind, thoughtful, and an attentive wife and mommy.  Young Lady Lily is the apple of their eye and Master Jake is a ray of light to all who enjoy his joyful disposition.

Morgan married Linden in a beautiful May 2018 outdoor wedding ceremony performed by Katie’s brother. Morgan is an electrician while Linden earns a master’s degree. Morgan is creative and proves this in his woodworking, leather working, and gift-giving. His Senior Trip request was to visit John C. Campbell Folk School and The Woodwright’s Shop, both in North Carolina, USA.

Owen, a 2017 homeschool graduate, is an entrepreneur with enough ambition to take him to the moon. He is an amazing craftsman, co-owner of former leatherwork business, real estate agent, and pursuer of other goals. We expect the Lord will do incredible acts in his life as O continues to seek His Face. His Senior Trip request was to go snowboarding which was no surprise as adventure is attractive to him. As a child, every night he would pray, “Lord, help us to wake up and have fun tomorrow.”

JonBoy is an evaluator, a noticer. He doesn’t allow any circumstance to pass without dozens of questions, especially as they relate to his daily schedule. His questions led him to a confession in Jesus in December 2018. His brain seems to operate like that of an engineer’s. He is dealing with special challenges as he learns to navigate his past experiences. He loves to be around the Big Boys and he hates mushrooms.

Little Miss Homemaker has been a helper all of her life. She helps–even when her brothers desire no help. She is training to be a homekeeper and we feel the Lord will bless some young man one day with this loving, attentive and generous young lady. Her love of people has spilled over to a higher degree as she professed that Jesus is Lord of her life in November of 2019.

Little Music Man is a live wire. (Does a large enough font exist to emphasize this?!) He certainly keeps us parents on our toes (or flat on our backs by day’s end). He loves his family, playing piano, Curious George, LEGOS and Nutella. Our lives wouldn’t be the same without him–or any of our dear and precious family members. His daily prayer is, “Lord, Help us all to be together.” (in his interesting little accent)

We love a simple life and are working more toward that. We aren’t fancy. We don’t put on airs. And we aren’t opposed to offering our guests a simple pot of white beans and cornbread.

Honored that you have chosen to meet us here, please let us know if there is any way we might help you by posting content relevant to your needs.


Thanks for walking life with us!
