April Update

Hi friends!

We are so glad that you found this blog! We are happy to have this place to use as a platform to update everyone steadily throughout the year, especially during such a time of transition in our lives. We hope that you continue to follow us, as we discuss prayer requests, exciting news, and other information about what God is doing in our lives.

Our wedding invitations have gone out this week, and should be arriving soon to your homes! Here is the link to our wedding website with the RSVP information, map to the venue, and registry links:


Andrew was able to come to Oklahoma to visit Sydnie for a week during his spring break, and that time together was a blast. We got to see so many friends, family, and professors that have impacted our lives in such tremendous ways and we are so thankful Andrew was able to be here for a while.

During that time in Oklahoma City, our wedding photographer was able to travel over and take our engagement pictures. We are attaching a few of those photos to this blog, so please enjoy. We cannot rave enough about our photographer, Samantha Daniels! She was so much fun to work with and seeing these photos makes us eagerly anticipate our wedding day that much more. If you live around this area, please consider using The Kindred Collective for your next pictures.



Easter was a couple weekends ago, and for followers of Christ this is the holiday that reminds us of the Lord’s great and loving sacrifice. We are reminded of 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 that says, “For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures…”

We rejoice in the above Scripture, and also in this one from Romans 6:7-11 which says, “For one who has died has been set free from sin. Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. We know that Christ, being raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has dominion over him. For the death he died he died to sin, once for all, but the life he lives he lives to God. So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.”

Prayer requests:

  • Please pray for Andrew and the Nelson side of the family, as they have just suffered a great family loss with the death of a loved one.
  • Diligence in school for the both of us and that we would finish out our spring semesters well.
  • For Sydnie as she nears the end of her undergraduate career. Such an exciting time for her, but please pray that she would remain dedicated to her studies. (especially with Greek)
