Celebrating Ten Years

In the year 2000 I rededicated my life to Jesus while living here in Bismarck, North Dakota. Just two months later I moved to North Carolina with my sister, Tesa. While in North Carolina, I made the decision to not do the dating thing and prayed that God would lead me to the man I was to marry.

To my amazement, that man happened to be living in my hometown of Watford City. I met him while going home for a long weekend just before my 28th birthday.

In April of 2002, I moved back home and one day while Rob and I were driving home from having dinner in Killdeer, we saw the most magnificent double rainbow while going through the Badlands.

It was an unspoken sign to both of us that we were meant to be together. We married on September 7, 2002 on the edge of those same Badlands in a little country church. In December we drove all the way to Toronto, Ontario - Rob's hometown - for a second wedding reception.Our life was a little crazy when we first got married as we were trying to run a business and before our one year anniversary, I became pregnant with Faith.
After our wedding reception we drove to Mountain View, Alberta for our honeymoon.
As I look back on these ten years, I see a road with some rough spots, a few unexpected curves and some detours along the way. I'm so thankful that through prayer and His word, God gave us a road map to help us find our way!

Though our journey has had its challenges, I'm thankful that we have taken the ride together and have been able to experience joy, laughter, understanding, friendship and love.

Today as we celebrate our tenth anniversary, I'm even more ready than ever to keep on truckin' and see what God has in store for the rest of our lives together!
