Yesterday I had the pleasure of doing one of my favorite things. Teach from the Word with my husband. I don't know when we discovered that doing this together was such an invigorating activity but we absolutely delight in it! We have been in ministry together for 30 years. It is hard to believe but it is true.

Kevin and I became Christians in High school and had an amazing experience being part of a ministry that reached out to 1000+ students on a weekly basis. Later we found ourselves working together to teach and lead these students. It was in the basement of the youth center one night when I saw God working through Kevin and thought. "He is so attractive!" I was falling in love with the man who was loving God. We would lead meetings together, talk through bible passages, critique each others messages and spur one another on. Through the years this has repeated itself in many ways and in various environments.

I guess each time we teach together I am reminded of
the early days of our relationship.

Scripture says that

Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work. Ecc.4:9

It also says that

For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh. Genesis 2:24

I truly think that for my husband and I, we are a balance of many gifts and that when we use our gifts together it is a good thing. We feel blessed and hopefully those who have heard us together feel this way.


I am grateful for the gift of a spouse who loves you and seeks after you. Thank you for continuing to work in his life for your great pleasure. I praise you for giving us opportunities to serve you together. My heart is filled with joy as I think about all that happened yesterday. It would be okay with me if we had more times like that. May your name be lifted high through our lives.
