Walking into the church, I mean house, now is like walking into another building all together from what it was five years ago. No more old fashioned church kitchen! Bethany has a beautiful, ultra-modern, Martha-Stewart-style kitchen, complete with solid-granite counter tops, copper sink, and hardwood cabinets—all designed by Chris.
Did I mention the gymnasium? Yes! What’s a church (now home) without a gymnasium? Being a basketball family, the gymnasium couldn’t be put to better use. It even has a regulation scoreboard. Tuesday nights are two-on-two nights at the Hinkle’s. And, are you ready for this? Chris installed a home-theater system in the gymnasium that rivals, no, surpasses, most theaters.

The Hinkles are quick to cite their faith in God when it comes to all they have accomplished and the work yet to be done—and the American can-do attitude. “This is the American dream,” Chris points out, with his arm around Bethany. “Work hard, keep your trust in God, take it one day at at time, and never doubt what you can do.”
Bethany beams when she looks at her home and family. “Happy wife, happy life,” comes to mind.
