We are the Coover Family: Dad (Matthew), Mom (Lindsey), and seven children so far (Caleb, Abigail, Benyamin, Shoshanna, Ruthannah, Ethan and Naomie).
This website is our attempt at online outreach and ministry. I began this website when I was 12 years old as a homeschooling project. I'm 36 now and it slowly progressed into what it is today. Here you can find our betrothal story, as well as articles and books we've written. I don't have near as much time to write and update it today as I had 20 years ago, but we're currently trying to refocus our priorities and restructure our workload in hopes that more time can be invested in this direction, so please check back periodically.
For those who are curious, we share many of the same basic ideals as the Mennonites and Amish, coupled with a focus on conservative Judeo-Christian values and the Hebrew origins of our faith in Yahshua as the Messiah. Some might call us "Hebrew Roots" or "Messianics" or "Jewish Christians", but we don't ascribe any particular religious title for ourselves. We are just a family who is part of a greater fellowship, seeking the ways of Yahweh, our Heavenly Father.
Our desire is to bridge the gap for those who embrace the ideals of the anabaptist movement of the 1600s while upholding the true teachings of Yahshua the Messiah interpreted in their historical context of the Torah (5 books of Moses).
If you visit or fellowship with us you may notice that we endeavor to dress modestly, live simply, baptise by immersion, keep the 7th Day Sabbath and Feasts of Leviticus 23, and and home educate our children. We realize that all of these things are deemed counter-cultural in Western society, and we don't believe our voluntarily exercise of these things is a prerequisite of our salvation. Instead, they are our natural heartfelt response to the salvation the Messiah Yahshua which He extended to us.
We'd love for you to explore our website which we pray will help other parents procure righteous families with a vision for the generations to come as opposed to what is immediately the easiest for us. We also welcome you to contact us if you are near either New England or the Ozarks and are interested in sharing fellowship.
