We are so happy you are here! If you have a desire to strengthen and celebrate your marriage, you are in the right place. We launched Fulfilling Your Vows™ in February of 2013 as a means to help inspire married couples to create the marriage of their dreams by fulfilling their vows to one another. It is our hope that during your time here with us you will walk away refreshed and encouraged.
We are college sweethearts and have been married since June 10, 2000. We met at a college campus Bible study while attending Washington State University in fall of 1998, and the rest is history. Together we have three beautiful children (two boys and one girl) whom Carlie stays home with and also has the honor of homeschooling.
Both of us are honored to be able to model the example of Christ’s love to our children through our marriage. We do their best to honor God on a daily basis teaching and instilling biblical values in our children. While we are imperfect, we are always making the most of every opportunity (both the good and the bad) to teach our children to be resilient and to love God and one another through it all. We both believe the single most important thing we can teach our children is to have Christ-like character. This is a challenge that we are up for and enjoy ministering to our children (as a united team) and to one another in our marriage.
It is our prayer that this website will bless everyone who visits. It is our desire to encourage everyone to seek to have a beautiful marriage by fulfilling your wedding vows with your spouse. We appreciate your friendships and are praying for each and every one of you who visit Fulfilling Your Vows™.
Carlie put together both Encouragement for Christian Wives: 30 Wives Share Their Wisdom and Biblical Encouragement for the Modern-Day Wife.
