We'd both like to say "thank you" for taking the time to visit our site.
|Steve and I both went
to the same junior high and
high school in Euless, Texas...but we never knew each other! He knew my best friend,
but not me. Then in 1996, we met in the Young Adults Sunday School
class at Calvary Temple in Irving, Texas. I'll never forget the day
Steve auditioned for 'In His Image' drama. I was at the sign up
table and I said, "Hey, I know you!" Performing in dramas here and there
for the church, we were both eventually cast in the church dinner theater
called "Don't Drink the Water". I became pretty taken with
him during this time. :) About five months later, we
started dating. After three months,
we parted as friends and continued to act together in the drama ministry,
which was a very important part of both of our lives. He was even cast as Jesus
and I as the adulterous woman! Then in
November of 2001, Steve asked me back into his life...and the rest is
history! It's been a bumpy ride thus far, too. We've since suffered
job layoffs, the fall of the drama ministry and also completely changing churches...but
we are still together! Steve proposed the Friday before my birthday, August 29, 2003.
He got down on one knee, presented me with his mother's and grandmother's wedding rings as a
symbol and asked me to marry him. We went ring shopping on my actual birthday, September 2nd
and he asked my father for my hand in marriage that same day. It was a great birthday!
On the right is my beautiful engagement ring...it's a heart of course!
