Scott and Carrie on their wedding day, September 9, 1978

Hi Friends, Today my husband Scott and I are celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary. What a milestone! We are grateful to God for the love and grace he has showered on us and for the strength and wisdom He provides each day.

Marriage is not for sissies! It takes committment and determination to work through differences and overcome challenges. But with faith in God and a desire to follow His principles for marriage and family life He can help you build a strong and healthy marriage and family. I am blessed to be married to a godly man like Scott. His devotion to God and faithful heart are very unique in an age when so many men are self-focused and not interested in spiritual matters.

I admire Scott for so many reasons. He is a diligent student of God’s Word and is always looking for practical ways to live out those principles and help others do the same. I am the blessed recipient of much of the wisdom he has absorbed from all those years of teaching the Word each Sunday. He is the real deal . . . the same at home as he is in the pulpit. He speaks the truth in love and is encouraging and supportive. He cheers me on when I am successful, and he listens and sympathizes when I’ve had a rough day. That’s love.

Scott turansky, Carrie Turansky“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” 1 Corinthians 13:4–8 

So Happy Anniversary, honey! Thanks for thirty-five great years together!
