Eric and Sarah moved from Colorado to Alaska in 2011.
Eric is a carpenter by trade and owned his own company for 14 years as a general contractor for residential homes. After spending summers mentoring college students in Alaska, the Lord called them to lead the Tanalian Leadership Center. Eric is able to combine his carpentry skills and his love for mentoring as he works with the students on the job site and in every day life.
Sarah assists with many administrative tasks and is able to mentor the young women in many areas as they spend time with her in the kitchen, outside or with their family. Their home is always open and buzzing with activity. They enjoy the outdoors and spending time with their 3 children; Evan, Daniel and Ellah.
