about us

hi, i'm jami nato. one thing you should know about me is that i cuss sometimes. but i really love Jesus. i don't pretend to have it all together and we never will because we can't! that's why we need a savior.

you should know, we've been through some things: miscarriage, affair, special needs kid...heartache. it hasn't been easy. but even in that, i know that God is insanely kind and good to us even in our suffering. our hope is not in our circumstances or how happy we are, but in God. this gives us a perspective that shapes everything we do and how we deal with our suffering.

so meet my family.

this is nato, my hot asian husband. love of my life. he has taught me so much.


this is layne. firstborn. awesomeness. sheriff. rule follower. he reminds me to pack his lunch and sign his homework every morning. talks a lot. where does he get that from?

lila. oh my word. hilarious. the most joyful child you've ever met. she is special needs, but we don't have a label for her. regardless, she's a gift to this family and to the world.

this is penelope. wants to be heard. a lot. she's a gift to this family that we all certainly don't deserve. but she's here...with her mullet and snaggleteeth. you're welcome.
