These 2 lovebirds met on the campus of Mayville State University and they said “I Do!” on a snowy night 50 years ago on December 27th, 1969, at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Hillsboro, North Dakota. Together, they farmed and raised their 3 children; Angela (husband Peter), Casey, and Ryan (wife Rhonda). They are loving every adventure with their 7 grandchildren. Their marriage is such a blessing to all of the family and friends who have witnessed them living out these words from Colossians 3:12-17.
“Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.”
