Our Story

Matt and Kari’s worlds couldn’t have been farther apart, yet run so parallel. Both married at 19 years of age and served in ministry throughout their married life, and then both were tragically widowed in 2015. When they met, they found so much in common; and they also found love in relating to their healing.
