Our Marriage

Kaye and Warner both feel greatly blessed that we’ve had such a wonderful marriage, in spite of ups and downs throughout the years.  We’ve learned a lot in our partnership.  We’ve grown closer together, we’ve laughed much, and we’ve overcome many challenges and hardships. We’ve enjoyed the fun, the chaos, and even the conflicts between us and with our children as we learned what it means to be a village tribe.

As shown above, this early 1980s old-fashioned photograph of our family could be from our ancestors in the 1880s. It suggests the flavor of our family history in the Old West and our Mormon pioneer heritage that influence our values still today.

“People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we are seeking is an experience of being alive…[that] reverberates with our inner-most being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive…..”

— Joseph Campbell, anthropologist on social meaning
