Our Anniversary

Kenny and I just celebrated our 12th  wedding anniversary. We got married when I was almost 23 & he was almost 22. We dated for 1 year- including 6 months of engagement.

To this day I think our reception was the best party I’ve ever been to. I danced ALL night long. If you wanted to talk to me I was on the dance floor. Then came our honeymoon, an amazing week of relaxation and well… you know.

Our first year of marriage was totally intense. Both Kenny and I came from broken homes; we had a lot of learning to do. It was trial by fire.

The next seven years we spent learning, growing, & maturing. We switched churches; moved closer to the city, traveled to different countries… we became adults!

After seven years of marriage we got pregnant and had our 1st of 3 children. What a transition that was! Then we came to visit our friends in Arizona and truly felt like God was telling us that it was time for a change.

So we moved, switched churches one more time, bought a house, bought another car, and had 2 more children.

If you had told me when I was lost in my teenage years or caught up in myself in my early 20’s what my life would look like now at 34 I probably would’ve laughed at you.

God is truly an amazing orchestrator. He can take what’s broken and damaged and make it new again.
