"I grew up in a Christian home and made the decision of faith when I was little. However, I would describe my relationship with the Lord as loyal. After high school, I soon found out that loyalty to God was not enough, and only when love is abounding can I really grow in my faith. I have seen my spiritual life grow as I made a decision to devote myself to the reading of scripture. The most exciting part of my job is to teach my students how to read their Bibles for themselves."
Mr. Most and his wife, Lydia, have three children - Naomi, Josiah, and Apollos. Aaron grew up in Colorado and loves snow. He is an avid backpacker and has climbed 14 of the 54--14,000 foot peaks in Colorado. His odd hobby includes wanting to learn more, especially in the field of science, and spend a big chunk of time reading the latest scientific studies and discoveries. (Okay, so his hobby helps him become a great science teacher so it's not SO weird.)

Hollie has grown up at Grace, quite literally, as she attended from first through twelfth grade. Her passion for the school continues through coaching and teaching. She values the relationships God provided her while a student at Grace and seeks to give her athletes and students the same blessing she received. She firmly believes that our relationships in life largely shape who we are, and ultimately are a reflection of our relationship with God.
She enjoys any sport including running along with reading, writing, and spreading encouragement.
She and her husband love the community of Kankakee, their dog Bruce Wayne, and their new baby boy.
