I love you more than words can express!
I'm so grateful for how you lead, protect and cherish me.
You are my best friend and encourager, my most faithful prayer partner and my life long companion & love.
You won my heart years ago as I saw your deep love for God and your transparency with me.
Recently, when one of our daughters asked, "Mom, what one quality should I look for in a future spouse?", as I considered the answer, I realized what it is that I admire so much in you, Jim Bob.
It is that you LOVE & HONOR God and in humility you are open & transparent with me, simply put, HUMILITY and the FEAR OF THE LORD.
I'm so grateful that you share your heart with me. Your hopes, your dreams your successes, your weaknesses and even your failures.
We are a team. I so enjoy the oneness of spirit that we experience as we walk through this life together with Jesus.
I respect and admire you so much, Jim Bob!
I'm so honored to be your wife!
The greatest blessing of my life was 31 years ago, on July 21, 1984 when Michelle married me. She is the virtuous woman that Proverbs 31 talks about. She is the ultimate wife and mother and I love her more and more each day. Michelle is a strong leader, yet tender hearted, and has a sweet, loving spirit. She is my best friend, we share everything. Michelle is selfless, always thinking of others first. She is an example to millions of women, her children rise up and call her blessed. Michelle is my business partner, ministry team companion and the mother of our 19 children.
Michelle, I love you! Your life has impacted the world.
