3. You are doing what God has called you to do.

Wow that's a lot of presure for the rest of us mere mortal husbands!!! Thanks for sharing your love for your husband on your blog. I agree with you that Kerry loves God and he is definately a man of integrity. He lights up at the office when he speaks of you and the children.

I have the best wife and friend in the entire world... Believe me when I say that my wife is all that plus a thousand other great things in my life. I couldn't do life without her.

I love you Steph! You are the best friend, wife, and mother a man could ever pray for.

Your loving husband,
