Mitchel and I have been together for 8 and a half years. That is CRAZY to me. We started dating in October 2010, as freshmen in college. Our relationship was just plain fun. We did fun things on campus together and I thought he was hilarious. Random trips to Krispy Kreme in Greenville at 9pm […]

Marriage Monday: 3 Words to Describe Your Spouse

April 29, 2019

Marriage

Marriage

Mitchel is a words guy (I am NOT a words girl). I shut down in a disagreement/argument, he just wants to talk it over. He is a great listener, while I am not so much. You see, we couldn’t possibly be more different with our communication styles. (He is and always will be a comm […]

What have been some struggles in your marriage? How did you overcome them?
Learning how to communicate. Learning that my way isn’t the only way to do things. Learning the importance of putting God first individually and in our marriage. We’ve overcome all of them through just doing life together, support of church community, and a Bible – teaching church.

Traveling is so much fun, and it’s even better with your spouse by your side! Recently, we were able to travel to Italy! The most dreaded part, flying of course. Not necessarily the act of flying, but the 4 different plane rides we took from Greenville, to Philly, to London, to Pisa; and not to mention the layovers in the airports.

Marriage Monday: Brent & Ali Brazell’s marriage story

How long have you been married?

1 year and 1 day!

Tell us your love story! How did you meet?

We met at a mutual friend’s house. After a few run-ins through friends, Brent asked for my number and we went out on our first date. We went on a couple of dates and I (Ali) decided we were better off as friends. I didn’t really have a reason, mostly just fear of the unknown. About 6 months later, I ran into Brent again at the same mutual friend’s house. He was kind and talkative towards me, when I thought he had every right to be standoffish and rude. I knew that I needed to reach back out. After a few awkward texts, we went out on another “first” date. The rest is history. 🙂
