Introducing my wife Annie Deddens…

We were married this weekend and you will be seeing more of her around the PrayMoreNovenas community.

I thought you might want to see some photos from the wedding:

We haven’t gotten the photos back from our photographer yet, so I will post more when the ‘official’ pictures are available!

Thank you so much for all of your prayers and support!

I mentioned that you will see more of Annie around from now on. In fact, she will be helping quite a bit with PrayMoreNovenas as we continue to grow!

Speaking of growth, we are up to 24,140 people praying together!
