Meet my wife

May 29, 2011 Leave a comment

The first time I saw Jen was at a junior high youth event.  And no, she wasn’t in junior high.  She was a new youth staff member at the church I had just started working for.  We were taking the kids to play mini golf.  When we arrived, the kids and other staff quickly formed groups of four to play.  Since she and I were new, the only person that wanted to play with us was my roommate.  Not the typical way to meet someone, but it was memorable.

I can truly say that I was blown away by this beautiful, smart, funny woman.  And I can say that I am pretty sure that she wasn’t blown away by me.  Over the next few months we became good friends.  It took five months before I wore her down enough to date me.

We were married in 2002 and I love that I get to spend my life with her.  She is a great mom to our three rug rats, speaks French fluently (and isn’t too bad in Spanish either), is very crafty (as in making things), and is a great cook.

Oh, and her picture doesn’t do her justice!
