I met Valerie at church many years ago before either of us were married or had kids. Then we crossed paths again at MOPS where we were both just moms attending. Three years ago Valerie took on the role of leading mops for two years and she did an amazing job! This is when we worked together on the same steering team and got much closer as friends.
Our boys Mark and Charlie are only months apart, and Mark LOVES Charlie to pieces. He always wants to be with his buddy Charlie. They are in the same Awana class and next year they will both most likely be in the same Classical Conversation homeschool coop.
Valerie is a naturally sweet person. The sweetest I know. She is super organized and loves artsy crafty stuff because she was an Art major and Art teacher. She is gifted and talented in so many ways. I had to spot light her here. I think she is a great mom!
Here is her awesome mommy story!
When did you and Scott meet? When did you get married?
1. Scott and I met in the Summer of 2006 through Doctor Steve, a mutual friend of our families. The story goes something like this...Doctor Steve asked my mom to call me into the office one summer afternoon as Scott was the next patient he was going to see that specific day. It was definitely a set-up and more so for Scott as he had no inkling of what was going to happen. When I arrived at the office, Scott was sitting there as was I and Doctor Steve came right out from the hallway and very nonchalantly asked Scott if he knew me and then let us take it from there. Well...to make a long story short, that was history and we got married in November of 2007. I am blessed by my wonderful, loving husband who genuinely loves The Lord and continues to nurture our family as he faithfully serves us!
