About Us

our wedding in 2010

Matthew Manchester

Hi, my name is Matthew. I am a husband, father, musician, designer, lover, teacher and servant/leader for First DeLand Worship. I have a beautiful wife, two amazing little girls and boy.

I love to play piano and drums. I enjoy graphic design and I have a passion to fix organizational problems. I work as a Customer Support Rep for DaVita Labs and work with a great team. I’m crazy about metrics and inefficiencies.

My passion is songwriting and teaching the Bible to young adults and youth. I use this blog mainly to lay out my thoughts that are too long to do on my Twitter account. You can read more about that here. I love helping people know God more.

God has been so good to me. Thanks for checking this site out. Might I suggest you start here?

Ranae Manchester

My name is Ranae and I’m a mother of two beautiful girls (Lily and Anastasia), a handsome son (Micah), and a wife to my wonderful husband, Matthew. I’m a stay at home mom educating our children and trying to control the laundry. (that is a battle I don’t think will ever be won!) I love meeting and talking to friends and new people. I long to serve God in any place He wants me to.

Thank you for taking the time to read some of our thoughts. God bless you!
