17 Things I've Learned in 17 Years with Audra

17 years ago today, I showed up on Audra Podzemny's front porch with a dozen roses and asked her out.  She said yes!

As I was thinking about that this morning, I started considering what an incredible blessing she's been in my life.  To give you just a glimpse of what I'm talking about, I've decided to list out 17 things I've learned in 17 years with Audra:

  1. She loves Jesus with all her heart.
  2. She's is a caring, compassionate, loving, patient and consistent Mother to our children.
  3. She demonstrates to our kids what a godly women, wife and mother looks like every day.
  4. She's a giver and a servant leader.
  5. She makes our house a home and a place of retreat.
  6. She knows me as well and sometimes better than I know myself.
  7. She keeps my head thinking right thoughts and my heart soft to the needs around us.
  8. She's an encourager and a supporter.
  9. She has an independent call of ministry and loves doing life with and investing in women.
  10. She's more beautiful today than the day I met her.
  11. She knows how to make me laugh.  
  12. She's a prayer warrior.
  13. She's trustworthy, honest and a woman of integrity.
  14. She's a hard worker.
  15. She always seeks to do the right thing.

  17. When she said, "I do," I knew it was for a lifetime.
I love you babe.
