How long have you been married?

2 years 


What is your love story?


In 2012 I was working as a 2nd shift residential counselor. We were short staffed and Brandon was called in from another program to fill in. That night we talked through the entire shift and two hours after the shift... he even shared his dinner with me (lol). We kept in contact as friends and in 2013 he asked me out on a date. Over time he fit in with my family and life as if he was meant to be there. On June 25, 2016 we got married and the rest is history. 

How did you know your husband was the one?


I prayed to God for years that he send me someone that first loved him and would love me with my flaws and all. Who would be a god fearing, caring, confident, and hard working man that wanted to be my husband....and he was all of the above.

What was the best part about your wedding day?


The best part of my wedding day was the wedding ceremony. The pastor spoke about what marriage meant and the role we would play in each other’s life as well as those watching our marriage. It helped keep things in perspective.

What is one piece of advice you would like to share to a newlywed?


I will give the advice that was given to me and my husband which is always give each other the benefit of the doubt in your marriage. Don’t jump to conclusions with negative thoughts always believe the best until proven otherwise. 

What is one or two pre-marriage tips or scriptures you would give a bride?


First tip is don’t allow your wedding day to become bigger than your marriage. The wedding day will last less than 10hrs out of your life. Your marriage will (God willing) take up the rest of your life. Secondly, the scripture that has been a blessing in my marriage is Romans 4:21 “And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform“. 

What does living a life Faith + Fulfillment mean to you?


It means trusting God even when it doesn’t feel good. Knowing that through it all I are loved by God so he will keep his promises to me so worrying is pointless because my life is driven by God’s map. 

Complete the sentence: Love is______.


a beautiful choice
