"It's my strength for holding on
Every minute that I have to be gone
I'll have everything I'll ever need
I'm carrying your love with me"

Greg and Kelly Franks

©      How did you meet?
We met on the internet when it wasn't popular in 1996, when there were chat rooms.  My sister brought home her computer from college and told me NOT to share ANY personal info with anyone.  He asked if there were any cute TX girls and I instant messaged him yes I was. We chatted on private message for 4 hrs and he was a hen pecker so I asked him if he wanted to call me.  He called and we talked until 6 am.  That was at Thanksgiving.  We kept talking and he bought me a plane ticket to come see him for New Years Eve.  I flew and he picked me up.  He put me in a hotel.  We were engaged 1 month later and married June 26, 1996.

©      What do you love about your husband?
He was hard working, VERY caring, and SO KIND!!!  I knew right away I would spend the rest of my life with Greg.

©      What are some things you enjoy doing together?
We go to movies and have a date night once a month.  We pray together every morning before we leave for work.  We do things as a family.  I LOVE to see him interact with our kids.

©      Kelly, what is your favorite part of marriage?
My favorite part of marriage is each stage we have been through.  I LOVE to spend time with Greg.  He is my soul mate!!

©      What is the most important aspect of a marriage?
COMMUNICATION!!!! You MUST tell how you are feeling about something.  If you don't, the person will NEVER know.  Do it in a kind way.

©     Life often throws many curveballs, and those that make it through those tough times stay together. How have you dealt with stressful times that arise?
We dealt with infertility for 10 years of our marriage.  It was the MOST difficult thing to deal with.  The problem was mine and I felt like SUCH a failure!! Having Greg reassure me and help me deal with it was AMAZING!!! We grew MUCH stronger in our faith.  We went to MANY Bible studies together during that time so we grew in our faith and with each other.

©      What are the strengths of your marriage?
Our faith

©     Greg, what do you love about Kelly
I love how she takes care of our children.

©     Kelly, what do you love about Greg?
I love how Greg cares for me! He definitely puts me on a pedestal! 

©      What advice would you give to newly married couples?
The advice we would give to young married couples is to follow the biblical example of marriage, leave your family and cleave to your spouse.  If you have children they do NOT come first.  First is The Lord-ALWAYS, then spouse, then children.  ALWAYS communicate!!

©      What song best describes your marriage?
George Strait's "I'm Carrying Your Love for Me"

May these vows and this marriage be blessed. May it be sweet milk, this marriage, like wine and halvah. May this marriage offer fruit and shade like the date palm. May this marriage be full of laughter, our every day a day in paradise. May this marriage be a sign of compassion, a seal of happiness here and hereafter. May this marriage have a fair face and a good name, an omen as welcome as the moon in a clear blue sky. I am out of words to describe how spirit mingles in this marriage. – Jalalud’din Rumi Maryam and Matt were married on August 9, 2019 at The Olana Mansion.

The Attendants

http://www.zazzleweddings.com/Be-My-Bridesmaid.php   Your Attendants, or as they are commonly referred to as your Wedding Party, can be as large or as small as you like. Choosing your attendants may seem like a no brainer in the beginning. He pops the question, you say YES, you call everyone you know, and the next thing you know--you have 8 Bridesmaids! How did that happen?? It happened because your friends/family said, "I'm going to be in your wedding, right?" and you said, "of course!" It was not until three days later that you have realized how many people you invited into your wedding party. It is quite common to feel obligated to have certain people in your wedding (even if you are not close to them). However, it is your (and his) day so you should surround yourselves with people who are supportive, loving, and genuinely happy for you. Some of those described may be friends instead of family and that is okay. Choosing Your Wedding Party Think a

One that will influence the level of happiness, growth, and success, like no other choice.” – Nathan Workman “Love is like a beautiful flower which I may not touch, but whose fragrance makes the garden a place of delight just the same.” – Helen Keller “To be fully seen by somebody, then, and be loved anyhow–this is a human offering that can border on miraculous.” – Elizabeth Gilbert “They slipped briskly into an intimacy from which they never recovered.” – F.
