Thank you for taking the time to visit our weblog and getting to know us a little better.

We, Mark and Annemieke van Boxtel, are so thankful for friends like you (from all around the world) who live life abroad with us. 

We moved from our home country the Netherlands in September 2004. 
Since then we’ve lived in England for 4,5 years and in the north of France since March 2009.
We have three lovely, lively children called Joas (2004), Tim (2006) and our daughter Aimée (2012). We are very thankful for our daughter Hannah (2009) who’s living life with Jesus and are SO looking forward to the moment we can finally take her into our arms to tell her how much we love her and how she has changed our lives for the better.

Mark works as captain and trainer for the European airline company easyJet.
Annemieke’s main occupation is running the family. Trying to combine that with a study to become a counsellor specialist in grieve and losses, she’s also taking the time to blog every Monday and Wednesday about big and little things that happen in our lives.

We are both coaches for the American based ministry called Your One Degree. Together with our clients we discover, through a well thought out process, the way God created them to be (their DESIGN) and how to live that out in a focused and fulfilling life.
Partnering with Greater Europe Mission we live our lives in France while ministering to the people around us in lots of little and sometimes bigger ways.
