  • Do you and your spouse have a favorite song?

Steve wanted Household of Faith by Steve Green sung at our wedding. I would say that is our song.


  • What’s the most romantic present your spouse ever bought for you?

He saw a heart-shaped necklace with a lighthouse in the center. I love lighthouses.  It is a gorgeous necklace.  I love it.


  • How soon after meeting your spouse did you know he was the one?

I knew he was the moment I met him. We met at a Backyard Bible Study – and when I saw Steve, I said – that’s the guy I’m going to marry.

  • How soon after meeting you did your spouse know you were the one?

He said he recognized me right away too – definitely smitten.


  •  What is the most caring thing your spouse has ever done for you?

He sat with me when I was having chemo, and bent over backwards to make sure I was completely cared for when I fought cancer.


  •  Where did you and your spouse go for your honeymoon?

We lived in Springfield, Missouri, at the time, and didn’t have much money, so we took day-trips for our honeymoon.  One was to Branson, Missouri – specifically Silver Dollar City – one was to Eureka Springs, Arkansas. I don’t remember where else we visited.

About the book – Awakened Love: Katie Detweiler grew up Amish, never knowing she was adopted as an infant. Now an adult, her new job as cook at an Amish bed and breakfast doesn’t bring about the euphoria she hoped for. Just as she’s getting her menu perfected, the Englisch family and severely ill sister she never knew existed enter her life and strain her Amish relationships. Plus, Katie suddenly has two different men vying for her attention—one Amish, one Englisch—and she wonders if one of them could be the man of her dreams. But when her Englisch sister’s health worsens, Katie must find a way to balance her heart, her job, and her faith while risking her own life for the sister she never knew.
