The Boyuls Family featured article in Mohawk Life Magazine:
You have probably seen that gorgeous white farm-style house on Pawnee. It’s not the original house that was on that lot, but Ben Caldwell and the Shaddock Custom team recognized the space and designed and build the home that sits there now. Thankfully, the house was already in the early stages of development when Malachi and Shelby Boyuls saw what was designed and fell in love with it.
The Boyuls met in high school in Fredericksburg, TX. They were high school sweethearts, and when you meet them you can tell they were probably as cute together then as they are now. After high school, Shelby wen to the University of Texas at Austin and Malachi went to Mary Hardin Baylor. The two did not date in college, but after Shelby graduated from UT they were married and will be celebrating fifteen years of marriage in July.
After they were married, they lived in New York for a while. Malachi was in law school and Shelby went to grad school. But as they thought about where they wanted to be and raise a family, they knew they wanted to get back to Texas. Dallas was attractive to them as a place to relocate and build their life. So, the Boyuls became Texans again. They landed in the Bowie neighborhood upon their return to Texas and originally felt that was the area where they wanted to stay.
Malachi worked for a judge before starting his own investment firm, of which he’s been the founding partner for six years now. Shelby worked in social work. But when the first of the three Boyuls children came along, Shelby was able to stay home with them to be a full-time mom.
The oldest Boyuls child is Lincoln. He is in the third grade at Trinity Christian Academy and loves to read. He also loves playing football, but plays baseball as well. His favorite subject in school is Spanish. In his spare time, he enjoys playing Xbox and being a big brother to his younger sisters.
Next in line if Cambelle. She’s in the second grade at TCA and enjoys playing soccer and basketball. She loves jumping on the trampoline and is getting into gymnastics. Her favorite thing to study is history, specifically U.S. Presidents.
The youngest Boyuls and the child with by far the curliest hair is young Reese. She is two years old, loves “The Boss Baby”, her big brother and sister, jumping on the trampoline, and putting on her socks.
Complete with their two-year-old German Shorthair Pointer named Poppy (because having a new puppy two years ago at tge same time as a newborn baby was a good idea), the Boyuls family stays busy. Weeknights and weekends include sports practices and games. The family is also very involved in their church, Watermark. Shelby and Malachi lead one of the foundation groups for newly marrieds. They love helping young married couples and young parents start their lives and families with a solid foundation and support.
Being homebodies at heart, they knew they wanted a house that they could enjoy for themselves and their young family, but also have a space to grow and a place to offer in service to their church family and to their neighborhood. So, while they enjoyed the Bowie neighborhood, once they saw the big white house going up on Pawnee they realized they could keep their kids in TCA, stay in the area, and also have the farmhouse of Shelby’s dreams.
They connected with Shaddock Custom and were able to have input on some of the final design choices to make the home exactly what they wanted it to be. It was a great experience to work with Ben Caldwell and his team. And, when they moved in to the house in October 2016, it truly was the home that they wanted it to be. From having their Foundation group over to meet, or hosting a potluck breakfast with the neighbors, to hosting dinner gathering, they’ve already used their home as a blessing to others.
The Boyuls have jumped right in to the neighborhood and they love it. They go to CrossFit Richardson and love that group. They enjoy the overlap in the neighborhood between school, church, and gym and the community support that brings with it. They noticed right away how kids and families are often out playing in the front yard creating an inviting and friendly place to live.
They love to snow ski as a family, usually traveling to Angelfire each year. However, this year a lack of snow will keep them from their snow vacation. But, they are planning a trip to New Zealand in August. So, that might just make up for not getting to ski this year.
In 2014, Malachi ran for Texas Railroad Commission. While he didn’t earn the spot that year, he believes in getting involved and making a difference in areas where you feel strongly that it’s important to have the right people in the right places serving in the right ways for the right things. While a career in office might not be where he is called to serve right now, he and his family certainly are serving their church and community in amazing ways.
Shelby loves getting to know the older generation of Mohawk area residents. She appreciates the history the history they hold in the hearts, their memories, and in their homes as many of them are original residents to the neighborhood. Connecting these treasured seniors with younger couples and kids in the neighborhood is newfound a passion of Shelby’s. She enjoys taking the kids to chat with neighbors or seeing if there is anything their family can help with—yardwork, minor repairs, or even really hard tasks like taste-testing baked goods.
The Boyuls have already made a big impact in the neighborhood. Their house is not only a stand-out in the neighborhood, the family is truly a standout through their kindness, compassion, joy, and service to their neighbors. Malachi, Shelby, Lincoln, Cambelle, and Reese—we are so glad that the farm house of your dreams brought you to the Mohawk Area. They you for sharing your lives with us this month!
