A mail-order bride, Kim Nolywaika has been married to Manfred Nolywaika since 1989. They live in a little off-grid log house somewhere south of Fairbanks, Alaska and have four grown children. Two live at home, one lives just down the road a piece, and one is living in Heaven.
The Nolywaikas have enjoyed most of the usual Alaska pastimes at one time or another: hunting, fishing, gardening, water hauling, wood-cutting, fixing stuff (again), and spending time together.
Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it… Psalm 127:1
