We met at a Bible study and connected over a common interest in photography. We stayed distant friends for a few years. Then, Joel moved and Kelly Jean walked through a difficult season at work. Through those changes, we became close friends, realizing that when we supported one another we could seemingly deal with any of life’s struggles. A short time later Joel asked Kelly Jean to court. We found that we both love sci-fi, Disney, theology, learning, museums, and great food (Joel makes the best wings). We enjoyed each other’s humor and just loved being around each other. Joel proposed in front of Cinderella’s Castle in the most magical place on earth, and Kelly Jean said yes! Our support of each other was how our relationship grew and remains a crucial part of our marriage today. Our marriage becomes stronger each year that we are together and, in more ways than we ever expected. We always stand up for each other. We want to enjoy one another our whole lives and display for our children what a good marriage looks like, so they see how spouses should work through difficulties and listen to one another.
