About US+

US+ blog was created as a place for US (Kyler and Claire) to partner with YOU to engage and share in what God is doing in and through our lives. Our desire is that this not only a place of encouragement, but also somewhere that you can come to be challenged and fed God’s truth.

Our promise to you is that we are always going to be honest, transparent, and do our very best to model Christ in the way we live. Our hope is that this blog isn’t just about us, but that it truly is US PLUS- Us plus God, Us plus you- our friends, Us plus the nations.

About Kyler + Claire

Kyler and Claire Malarae (Mal-La-Ray) met in college at William Jessup University in Northern California. Claire first caught Kyler’s eye when he (a Sophomore) saw her at an event he was putting on where she was involuntarily put into a spam eating competition as a Freshman during the college’s welcome week.

Kyler always stood out to Claire throughout the years as being the crazy adrenaline junky who back-flipped off of stages, but also had a reputation for being an amazing Christian man.

Through working on campus in Student Leadership together and being on the same track team, it actually was not until Kyler graduated from college in the Winter of 2016 that the two finally began dating.

There was no doubt for either of them that they had truly found their forever life partner, and a year and a half later they were married on June 17, 2017.

The two currently reside in Kyler’s hometown of Grass Valley, CA with their dog Jessi and are pregnant with their first son, Brody (due Feb. 12 2018).
