Our Twenty-Year Romance DeepensAfter twenty years together, God is still writing our love story. Our relationship has moved beyond the fresh, innocent, fairy-tale love story of twenty years ago into something far deeper and even more beautiful.  Pouring out of lives for the Gospel, living in the public eye, carrying the weight of leadership upon our...
