Daniel was born in Jonesboro, Arkansas, but soon moved with his family to Milan, Tennessee. He trusted in Christ at a young age during a church service and was baptized shortly thereafter. His testimony since is that God has been gracefully sanctifying him as He continues to work in him toward His good purpose.

Katie was born in Tokyo, Japan, the first daughter of missionaries Donnie and Ruth McDonald. She trusted in Christ as a young child and was baptized at Cross Timbers Free Will Baptist Church at age seven.

Daniel grew up in Dickson, Tennessee, and graduated from Welch College in 2007 with a B.A. degree in English and Bible. He and Katie were married in 2008. Katie completed her studies at Welch, graduating with a B.S. in vocal performance and Bible in 2010.

The couple is active in ministry at Cross Timbers FWB Church. In addition to teaching young adult Sunday school classes, the musically talented pair are members of the praise team and plan Sunday evening worship services.

Their daughter, Leah Audrey, was born in July.
