Our Story

Jenny and Josh met in the summer of 2012 at a youth camp in taccoa falls, Ga.  Josh was the speaker, Jenny was a counselor, the rest was history.  While at camp Jenny and Josh locked eyes a few times, he liked her freckles and her smile, she was more godly and liked his heart, and the magic began.  Not to mention their first meal together was waffle house, can’t go wrong when you collaborate over bacon and eggs.  Fun and laughter, along with unyielding commitment is the basis for every good relationship, and that’s exactly what this couple needed.

Some of Our Stories

The stories that bind us all together.

“You do what you have to do” is a statement that we hear a lot from the kids at The Abandon Project. Most of the time this statement has to do with money or drugs, but when I heard Trey say this it was about something completely different.
