Our Story

The Winning Formula

First and foremost, to God be all the Glory for the great things He has done! We are a couple that is tremendously grateful for discovering each other at this point in life and having an opportunity to serve together in joint purpose. We vow & strive to keep God first in our lives (Matthew 6:33). We are a living testimony of God's restorative power, His ability to provide healing, and the amazing ability to provide us with multiple chances and opportunities to overcome what people may deem as "failure". We are in it to win it... coming together as two highly competitive athletes forming one championship team. Holly is a former All American tennis athlete that is a top performing clinical sales rep for a multi-billion dollar company. Jonathan is a former All Star football athlete and today an executive for a superb niche technology company. Through God's grace we both have leveraged our God-given talents to support a variety of community-based initiatives, ministries, & programs. We are aligned in Godly purpose and forged in passion as a beacon for good. Together we know we will help others find their passions and live in purpose. This starts in the home as we both have amazing children, Jonathan with two daughters; Holly with two sons and a daughter. The net result will be a powerful grafting of hearts & minds to glorify our Heavenly Father. We humbly seek the continued prayers & support of family and friends as we press toward our calling in Christ.

First Date


We went out to the Ave Kitchen and Wine Bar in Hampden (Baltimore, MD). ... After meeting about a month prior we exchanged info and had a handful of conversations getting to know one another before agreeing to go out alone on a date.

The Proposal


We took "a visit" to Bowling Brook Mansion and met with owner Debbie. Once the doors were pushed back into the parlor there was a table laid out with gold trimmed place settings & champagne glasses for two, a bottle of Vueve Cliquot and then our song playing in the background (Fall for you, Laila James). Debbie, Bobbie, Burt, Harvey, Chef T, Fru (Bayelle's photography) & Fru's Sister made the moment very special. We had the mansion to ourselves for the rest of the night.

Our Guiding Scripture Passage

More Than Conquerors (Romans 8: 31-39 NIV)

31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? 33 Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. 34 Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36 As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” 37 In all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
