35 Reasons I Love You

My husband is on a mission trip to Uganda…and it is his birthday. Today, he turned 35. In the last eleven years, we have spent every birthday together and so being apart has not been easy. I am so excited about the spiritual growth I know that he will experience and proud that he is willing to go out of his comfort zone to teach the Gospel to the world. I am thankful for his influence on our precious boys because I know this will profoundly affect them.

I also know that this experience will help the boys and I grow as well, and I am thankful for that opportunity too. That being said, all I want to do today is post 35 things I love about my husband in honor of his birthday. I know this is more of a personal post than one that teaches, but perhaps it will reinforce your own love for the people in your life. Please keep us all in your prayers.
