The Full Story
David & Erin
This is our story. Our prayer, through sharing our journey is that you find hope, and a way of help in your own situation. There is HOPE, and there is HELP!
As the old saying goes, we were “living the dream,” and as is often the case with young couples, it wasn’t long before we had two littles running through the house. After the birth of our second daughter, our little family began to struggle. The daily strain of ministry work and parenting was more than we had anticipated.
Like many couples, we really began to struggle in our marriage relationship. As a result, our choices started to reveal feelings such as: hurt, anger and loneliness. What was once a vibrant healthy marriage became a disconnected partnership. We began to separate ourselves emotionally and then physically. These choices led us down a path of separation and divorce.
We soon found ourselves asking the questions: What happened? and Where do we go from here?
EIGHT years later, on a warm February day, gathered with family on top of a boat house by the lake, the Lord graciously allowed us to be reunited in marriage. God’s love to us was greater than we could ever conceive as our children witnessed the restoration of our hearts through the obedience of God’s word.
We were broken, but not defeated. Never give up on God. Never stop praying. Never stop believing that God can do the impossible. We serve a God that REDEEMS, RESTORES and REVIVES!
"Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful"
I Corinthians. 13:4-5
