Our latest reunion in Little Rock, Arkansas, at RIVERFEST!
we were all in a "PREPARING FOR MARRIAGE" class on Wednesday nights at church. We were encouraged by the teachers to continue to get together for Bible study or in some manner after the class was over. We all got married in 1983, and did just that. We have vivid memories of our first get-togethers, in small houses and apartments, with our little bits of furniture and trying out new dessert recipes on each other. Those Bible studies were loosely organized, but we formed unbreakable bonds, even as couples moved away. We have 12 children between us now and are watching them leave our nests, one by one. After our first get together at a nearby resort long ago, we eventually met up for vacations in Arkansas, Colorado, Missouri, South Carolina, Washington D.C., and New York!!!
What a blessing to have other couples near our age that share a love of God and the church and commitment to marriage! I would strongly encourage you to actively seek out other couples that share these things with you and your spouse to hold you accountable and create a climate of positive growth for each other!
