The Funktional Family

A family who works together, stays together! News about the Mikkelson-Kersbergen family collaboration

About the family: Robert, Patricia, Chris and Mahriyanna September 5, 2009

We are Robert (58), Cliff (68),  Patricia (58),  Chris (23) and Mahriyanna (16). We have decided that the time has come for us to pull together as a family more than ever during these challenging economic times.

Our family structure is quite unique. Robert and Cliff are former husbands of Patricia. Cliff is father of Chris, and Robert is father of Mahriyanna. We are happy that we have been able to cooperate and keep the family together even though the marriages did not work out.

Each of us has unique talents to share. We are encouraging each other to both make money and market the gifts that each of us has to offer so that we can all do what we love to do.

We call ourselves the “funktional family” because we do work well together, in spite of our imperfections individually and collectively. Okay, so we don’t spell the word conventionally. Well, we aren’t conventional. And we love each other a lot!

We can  jobs together or individually. We are especially experienced and adept at yard sales. Other jobs we can do are:

  • Gardening
  • Moving
  • Organizing
  • Handyman work
  • Painting
  • Putting on garage sales
  • Cleaning

Each one of us has talents that we want to develop more and market including:

Chris: Card making and music

Mahriyanna: Jewelry making, music, and card making

Patricia: Music, parenting coaching, time management teaching, writing and organizing

You can contact us at Patricia’s cell 479-313-0414

We believe that a family who works and prays together stays together.

We would love to inspire other families to do the same thing we are doing, and would enjoy hearing from families who are doing this.
