Happy 7th Anniversary, Christopher and Anna Marie!

Seven years ago today, my second oldest brother, Christopher, vowed before God and man to take Anna Marie as his wife.

We love to see their desire to raise a godly family for Jesus, and wow, is their little family growing! When Baby #5 comes early next year, they’ll have 5 children, 5 and under. “The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it” (Proverbs 10:22).

Recently, they had the opportunity to be back at the same place they got married. They left those steps as a newly married couple, and now they are a family of seven.

Anna Marie always has a glowing radiance about her and seems like such a sweet, godly, and loving mother and person to be around.

May the Lord continue to bless your family!

  9. Happy Anniversary Christopher and Anna Marie! Blessings to you as you await the arrival of your 5th baby! Each and every one is a wonderful blessing from God. My husband and I have 10 children, and we can attest to the fact that this is true. Having a house full of small children is tiring and overwhelming at times, but God is so good! May you lean on Him for all your needs.

  11. Happy anniversary! May God continue to bless you and let you be a light for other married couples (and others too, of course). You seem like such a godly lady, Anna Marie. I’d love to meet you in person, but I guess we’ll have to wait for heaven ๐Ÿ˜€ (We live in Germany). It is so encouraging for me to see a fellow young mom and wife live her life according to the Bible. Keep it up!

  13. Happy Anniversary! I remember your wedding. I watched it with my son, who was in junior high at the time – I was happy for him to get to see something that went against the cultural norms. Anna seems to be such a cheerful, content young lady – radiant, in fact. May God continue to bless your marriage and your family!

  14. Happy 7th Anniversary, Christopher and Anna! Thank-you for your beautiful testimony as a couple and as a family. May this next year of marriage be the most wonderful yet!

    (I was privileged to tune in to your wedding seven years ago with a friend who was engaged at the time. She’s now married and they have a precious baby boy! And as I’m blessed to be enjoying more years at home with my family, I love the testimony of how in God’s time, marriage is a glorious and beautiful thing. Thanks for shining His light!)

      Sarah

  17. Happy anniversary to you both, you have a really beautiful family. Dir you already know if baby #5is a boy or a girl? I also want to day how much Anna gas inspired me on dressing modest, she always dress well, even when other people who says to dress modest are going to dress more wordly and less godly. How beautiful you are in the family photo in front of the church!

  18. Happy Anniversary!, Christopher and Anna Marie. I pray that the Lord will bless you and your family in love, joy, and peace. May your days together be filled with God’s blessings. Thanks for sharing your special day with us.

  19. 7 Years already??? Wow, congratulations! I went back to the original wedding posts on the blog to have another look at the pictures. Time really does fly – look at you guys now, 4.5 kids, a beautiful family. And I have to say I have rarely seen a woman who radiates such joy, happiness and contentment as Anna does!

  20. Happy Anniversary, Chris and Anna!! I so enjoy when Anna has time for a blog post. She is such a wonderful picture of contentment and happiness.

  21. Congratulations! Our families are quite similar in age. My oldest is 2 months younger than Joshua and we just had our 4th. It has been fun watching your family grow along with our own.

  22. Oh what joy! Congratulations! My husband and I have also been married for 7 years this year, and are expecting our 5th child early next month!

  23. Hoping Christopher and Anna Marie had a wonderful anniversary.

    Did the aunties keep the children so they couple could go on a date?

    Does Anna Marie make her and the girls matching dresses?

    Blessings all,
    Johnna

  24. What an absolutely beautiful family ! I especially love all the girls dresses, so pretty but delightfully modest and practical (speaking as a skirts only SAHM).

    I think as a Christian woman in submission to God and her husband there is nothing more perfect than a young and growing family. All be it that it is very hard work.
