Let me start off by saying that John + Christine do cuddling in photos REALLY well. I loved capturing there sweetness as a couple during this session. I have affectionally referred to them as “the Bickers” for years so it is funny to switch to calling them by their first names! I admire and love these two’s faithfulness and steadiness. They are a couple you can count on and they serve and love others so well. I can’t say enough nice things about them! I also love their relationship and how they interact with one another, it is such a picture to others of how a strong and loving marriage rooted in Christ looks. I am thankful for that!
To get personal for a minute - last summer Christine and I met to talk budgets (something my husband and I are super passionate about). I gave her all my advice and keys to maintaining a budget that makes sense for each family that is also easy to manage. She just ate it up as a fellow CPA. A few months later she told me she had taken everything we discussed and wrote detailed notes and was able to teach and train her family how to maintain their personal budgets as well! She just encouraged me how I have left an impact on others by sharing how financial stewardship is important and training someone how Ben and I do this on a regular basis! Thank you Christine, that was very encouraging to me!
One of my other favorite memories was staying up with her until 4:30 in the morning at a women’s retreat last year because we had SO much to talk about. I finally had to go to sleep because I wasn’t making sense anymore!!
