Now we're really official!

January 7 was a day of worship to the Lord who gives all good things. Our wedding day could not have been more of a blessing--despite mismatched tuxedo vests, groomsmen missing for the pictures, ringbearer's tuxedos nearly being left behind, and all the other nearly catastrophic events that I don't even know about. Walking down the aisle and seeing everyone gathered there is one of my favorite and most vivid memories. Thank you to all who were able to come and to those who prayed alongside of us in anticipation of our union. We'd love for you to post and let us know your favorite memory from our wedding or how the Lord blessed you there. Also, our wedding photos are available to view online. If you'd like the link, e-mail me at

Our honeymoon was at the El Dorado Seaside Suites in Riviera Maya, Mexico. We were so thankful to have four days to get to know each other as husband and wife. One thing we enjoyed about the resort was getting to know the Mexicans who worked at there. I (Becky) loved practicing my Spanish, and it made me excited for the day, Lord willing, when we get to study a new language in order to communicate with the people among whom we will live overseas.

Shortly after the honeymoon, we packed up our giant yellow truck (I do mean giant!) and made the long trek to Louisville, Kentucky. After a couple of weeks, we've both fallen love with our home. It's not glamerous by any means, but it meets our needs perfectly. Blending into life here and finding routine has been challenging. After a few really hard weeks, the past few days have been blessed with so much grace in our marriage and life here.

A favorite memory: Being at the side of my brother until his bride officially took my place as his best friend (it had happened long before)... and now getting to be by both their sides as they walk together in marriage.

Any news on Terra? I was out sick for a few days, but I have been praying! Please let us know. My favorite memory from the wedding was Becky on that fun stool, and AK throwing imaginary petals. I love you guys and miss you both!
