DEAR KAREN: Happy 16 Years of Putting Up with Me!


Today my wife Karen and I enter into our 17th year of marriage. I could never have asked for a better friend and helpmate!

At the time of our marriage I was not an evangelist because I always thought that was someone else’s job. So she has had to put up with a lot since I became a very zealous witness for Christ in 2004. One of those times she had to put up with me was while we were on a family trip to the San Diego Zoo. I learned a valuable lesson about priorities there.  (Read “My Big, Horrible, Awful, Stinkin’ Mistake” by clicking here.)

Thank you, Karen, for 16 wonderful (and challenging) years!


Also, a hearty Happy Anniversary
to Mr. and Mrs. Tony Miano
and Mr. and Mrs. “Righteous” Richard Chavarria!
