Success in marriage is more than finding
the right person. It's becoming the right person.
Becoming a faithful, loving spouse not only takes courage and faith, but
patience and a desire to keep learning and growing. Better than the question,
"What kind of spouse do I desire to have?" is the question, "What kind of spouse
do I aspire to be?"
You don't marry someone you can live with -
you marry the person who you cannot live without.
You have to walk carefully in the beginning of
love; the running across fields into your lover's arms can only come later when
you're sure they won't laugh if you trip.

This page is dedicated to my husband, Brent. I couldn't
have asked Heavenly Father for a better friend and partner. He is a
wonderful husband and a devoted father. I am thankful for him each day.
This is my guy in in his late teens/early 20's :) he pitched from Little
League all the way through college.
Us on our engagement trip to TX for him to meet my family.
He spends most of his weekends either coaching one or both of our boys or
sitting on the sidelines cheering them on.
He loves the Dallas Cowboys and watching football all day on
He also looks forward to his annual hunting trips with his friend, Mike. I
call it camping... they do more hiking than hunting. :)
Brent loves golfing. If he had his druthers, I
think he would do it everyday.
These are some pictures of our long awaited Honeymoon-after 12
years of marriage he took me on a Hawaiian vacation. 10 days, no kids, no
dogs, no worries...
receive love from our children as well as other -
not in proportion to our demands or sacrifices or needs,
but roughly in proportion to our own capacity to love."
He is good at cuddling puppies, too
