The Gibbs Family
Written by Michelle
Samuel Gibbs: He's a
rancher and has done pretty well for himself. He is proud of his family.
Samuel is a Bible believing, church attending family man. His downfall is
expecting his children to always do what he wishes. He pressures them into
Jennifer Gibbs: The mother of three boys and two girls, she is a gentle,
sweet woman who understands Margaret and all her struggles very well.
Scott Gibbs: The oldest son, Scott is 20 years old. He was badly injured
in a wagon accident when he was a young boy and has a lame leg. He is still
able to do a lot of the ranching work, but can't tolerate a lot of hard
labor. The family has adjusted to this, as well as has Scott.
Andy Gibbs: At 19, he has a lot of pressure on him to excel in areas his
brother can't. Though the accident was nobody's fault, Samuel puts pressure
on Andy. He will be the one to take over the family ranch someday in
Samuel's eyes. Andy has a need to please his father and cannot refuse him
for anything. But in reality, Andy is weaker than Scott on the inside.
Margaret Gibbs: A very gentle spirt, Margaret takes most things to heart.
She has a way about her that makes people stop and listen when she speaks.
Margaret is always ready to lend a helping hand to the McCain family as
much to her own family. In fact, the McCain's are just as much her family
as the Gibbs are. Since the age of 14, Margaret has known that she would
marry Lucas someday; and no matter what adversities come her way she
believes deep down inside that she WILL indeed become the wife of a rancher
named Lucas McCain.
Beth Gibbs: At 16, Beth is quiet natured and stays close to her mother a
lot of the time. Beth is in her final year of school.
Johnny Gibbs: Johnny is 13 years old and a bit on the wild side. He
doesn't always want things to happen the way they happen. At times, Johnny
wants to do things his own way. In the future, Margaret will worry that his
ways of doing things will get him into trouble.
