• Thank you, Rachel! And right back ‘atcha. Eric’s post is lovely. And I may need to call on you in the months and years to come for some domestic church advice. It’s a blessing to know you both; looking forward to collaborating in the future.

    I love it! Have to admit, I had to choke back a few tears as I was reading because it was so beautiful! It’s an honor to know you both!

  2. Lisa IS beautiful! She has an inner peace and calm that seems to center her and carry her about. Of course it only exemplifies the physical beauty that she has.

  3. I’m glad to hear that you have such an awesome wife, too. This link-up is a great idea because I don’t tell my wife how awesome she is nearly enough. Thanks for the inspiration!

  4. I consider it a tremendous gift to know you both. It’s always lovely to hear why a spouse honors and loves the other. It inspires me to look for the things I love in my own husband. Thanks, Joel, for nudging my sweet husband to write my love letter today!

  5. Joel, thank you for encouraging this. It is a great idea, and I enjoyed putting my thoughts into words. My post is coming, but it is based on a letter I am giving to my wife this evening. So, she gets the exclusive first-look!

    Beautiful! You are both very inspiring! What an AMAZING Valentine’s gift. So honored to know you both and call you friends. Now, on to urge my Valentine for his response ….

  7. This is really sweet Joel. A perfect gift for St. Valentine’s Day. Thank you for sharing a portion of your life story with us. It was a very wonderful read and I enjoyed it a lot. Happy Valentine’s Day to both of you. :)
