Couple's Name: Charles & Penni 

How long have you known each other? 19 years


Penni, how did you meet?

"I was an incoming freshman at East Central University. He was  a sophomore and on the leadership team. They divided the incoming freshmen into " families". Luckily, Charles was a leader in my "family". Our first 'family get together' was at Mazzio's. Charles sat by me. A few weeks later he caught me in the BSU and asked me out on date. He took me to Bandanas in Ada. After eating and unbeknownst to me, stomping all over his boots during dinner, we went to Bible study. We began to hang out and eventually started dating."

Date Married: *July 15, 2000

Lots of prayer and trust in God to help us through the rough patches.

Don't say mean words in anger. Words aren't easily forgotten. Try to talk things through. A soft answer turns away wrath.

     I love her Christian stance on life...her smile...her compassionate heart, her mama streak...her fun side...those gorgeous eyes...and of course her sweet personality.

His kindness, he's dependable, he does nice things for me, and most importantly, I love sharing fun times and building memories with him and our kids.
