We were introduced by our dear friends, Jon and Melissa Parnell, in October of 2011. At the time, Brittany was living in Minneapolis, MN, and Joel was going to school in Louisville, KY. While Joel was visiting the Parnells for the weekend, Jon and Melissa thought it might be a good idea to invite Brittany over in order to meet Joel.
Nine months later we were engaged. Jon and Melissa could hardly contain their excitement.
1 year later we were married-October 27th, 2012
2 weeks after our wedding, we moved to Louisville, KY.
We have lived in Louisville for just over a year now. Joel is working towards finishing his Masters in Christian Ministry at Southern Seminary and works full time doing online sales. Brittany works part time for The Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood and teaches piano and fitness classes on the side. We are trusting the Lord for how and when He plans to grow our family-biologically and through adoption. We plan, Lord willing, to go overseas long term.
