Michelle was born in Rexburg,ID and was then moved lovingly by her parents to Mink Creek, ID which she calls home. I went to Preston High School, Ricks College, and BYU-Idaho for educational purposes. I then served an LDS Mission to Portland, Oregon. Gary was born in Denver and was moved very quickly after to Grand Junction, Colorado. He went to Grand Junction High School and then served an LDS Mission to Portland, Oregon....Now for those of you who are thinking that we met on the mission, you are right, but for those of you who are thinking that previous and some other thoughts about mission dating....STOP right now. We did not get along on the mission and did not start dating until one of our mutual friends hooked us up. We were married on July 21, 2007 in the Logan Utah Temple and now reside in Grand Junction, Colorado.
