Congratulations Joanne and Toben!!


Congrats! My hubby and I are almost there too. We were married at 19; young and dumb. Like you and your hubby, we have been through A LOT but your encouragement and books help me through!!

Keep posting, writing and encouraging!!

Happy Anniversary, Joanne and Toben!

Here's trusting God has another 19 years of adventure in store for you! : )




Happy Anniversary! My husband and I celebrated 24 years on 12/27. Who knew anyone else was crazy enough to get married two days after Christmas!?! I have been reading your blog for the last few days - since I saw Melissa post on Beth Moore's blog about your medical condition. I have been moved to pray for you and your family. Blessings!
