Our History

Striving to live our ordinary marriage made extraordinary
by the companionship of Jesus and inviting others to do the same.

April 27, 1991

The Power of Putting God First

We exchanged our wedding vows on April 27, 1991. We were so in love and ready to take on whatever came our way. Big hurdles within the first year of marriage, little bumps the first five years. We then opened our hearts to the generosity of God. We discovered His plan for our marriage; and that we need Him at the center of our lives so that we can live out the JOY that He intended for our marriage.
