Joanna is probably one of my favorite people in the world. Not only are we family (she's my cousin!), but she has a heart of gold. AND she's hilarious and loves to be a huge dork... just like me! She has such a wonderful sense of self and purpose. I knew it would take an amazing guy to be able to get (ahem... convince) her to marry him. One. Special. Guy. It takes a lot of energy to keep up with Joanna's wit and personal drive... and Jesse was her match.
They met at Liberty University. Joanna is from Wisconsin, and to the surprise (and glee) of all of her family, Jesse has roots down here! Literally 20 miles from me - AND he runs in a lot of the same friend circles as my husband. Who knew! It was meant to be.
I love these two together. Jesse is on his way to seminary in North Carolina, so that's where they will have their first home. They're so incredible supportive of each other and can't wait to serve the church and their surrounding communities together as a team. I can't wait to see how God grows their marriage in the coming years.
I love you both to the moon!
