We met at church. He loves to remind me how I was always late, and I always explain how I was simply out in the foyer doing what I do best…talking. One Sunday, we ended up sitting together, and the rest is history. Well, there might have been an exchange of phone numbers…and a little random texting…and some periodic Facebook stalking thrown in there somewhere, but at this point, the details are a little blurry.We were engaged the following year and married later that same year. Our engagement lasted right around 9 months. I thought I needed that long to plan the wedding, but the truth is that I had planned the wedding back in the 90’s and was just waiting on the right man to show up in his tux.
A year or so after we were married, we found out we were expecting!
This is Caleb, and the day he entered the world was the day I was introduced to a whole new kind of love.
and we never knew how much we needed a girl in this family until we held her in our arms – I can’t wait to introduce you to her!
In less than ten years, David and I met, got married, and welcomed three little ones in to our family. When we look back at pictures from when we were just getting started, we say things like, “I can’t believe how rested we looked!” and “Wow! How do we get those bodies back?” We are now in a season of life where we depend on very large cups of coffee (and Jesus, of course!) to get us through our days. We are so glad to have each other and incredibly thankful that God brought us together, and we couldn’t be more grateful for the opportunity to raise our children to know Jesus and serve other people.
