How did you two meet? Tell us your story.
We met in 8th grade while in middle school. We built a friendship for a few years, and started dating during our junior year in high school. We fell in love and were high school sweethearts for over 3 years. We got to college and decided to break up. We were young and marriage was the next step. We wanted to be sure we were making the right decision of making a large commitment before The Lord. We broke up for 3 long years filled with heartbreak, patience, God’s lessons, and a realization that we would never find a love like we had before. We got back together, a month later we were engaged, and 5 months later were married. We were 100% sure this was God’s plan for us and we couldn’t be happier for that time apart to let God work in both of our lives and lead us back to each other.

What have you learned in your years of marriage?
Both: we have learned a lot and are continuing to but these are what we’ve found to be really important lessons: That you need to talk about your expectations. Pick your battles. Have a date once a week. Always try to out love each other, marriage is about serving one another. Do fun things together!
