The Morris Family

The Morris family began when Matt & Sarah met during college in Abilene.  Life after undergraduate studies resulted in 4 years apart as Sarah pursued her lifelong dream in Dental School at the University of Texas in San Antonio.  Matt however returned to Fort Worth where he simultaneously obtained his MBA from TCU, and began his career selling insurance for GUS BATES in 2002.  He still remembers the many $49 flights on Southwest Airlines to visit Sarah most weekends while they were apart.  The long-distance relationship brought them much closer together in the long run, and the two were married in June of 2006 in McKinney, TX.

With Sarah from Princeton, TX and Matt from Aledo, the two have found their niche in Dentistry and Insurance and they currently reside in Aledo.  They have two beautiful daughters Lillian Grace and Hannah Joy, full of energy and life. Matt & Sarah feel very Blessed to call Fort Worth home, noting the many friends and co-workers they've grown to love and the sense of community around them.  They are active members of Christ Chapel's west campus and their Faith is the cornerstone of their lives.  Both oversee growing, vibrant businesses and while every day is a challenge to fit it all in, they wouldn't have it any other way.  In their spare time they enjoy outdoor activities with their family, traveling when possible, and reading.
