We first met through the college group at our local church in the fall of 2006. On the night that I (Craig) was baptized, a large group of friends went out to dinner after the service. I ended up sitting right across the table from Courtney. Up to this point we had never met, but after introductions the first thing out of Courtney’s mouth was “I think you have a pretty face”. Of course I loved it and from that moment on, she had me. After a couple months of friendship, we decided to go out on a date and the rest is history!
In December 2009, Craig asked if I (Courtney) wanted to go grab lunch with him at our favorite restaurant after he got out of class that day. There is a sweet little fountain with a couple benches next to the restaurant, and throughout our dating years, we would go to that spot to talk, dream about our future, and pray together. That day, Craig got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. Of course, I said yes, and we got married a few months later!
We’ve now been married over ten years! In 2018, we welcomed our daughter, Navie, into the family through adoption. Having another person in our family to love and encourage and watch grow has been so incredibly rewarding.
Our hearts are open and ready to love and welcome a second child into our family!
