Forty-one years ago today, a beautiful young lady said “I do”; and we have been married ever since. They say that beside every good man is an even better woman. I couldn’t agree more. Through the ups and downs of life, my wife, Lisa, has been the foundation of our home and raised three incredible daughters (and now two grandsons are part of the extended family!).
I can safely say that The Steve Laube Agency would not be what it is today without her efforts behind the scenes. Her consistent prayers, her pursuit of God, and her love for me have made it all possible. She has been there through every agonizing twist and turn.
In addition, she has been the developmental editor genius behind most of the books published by Enclave Publishing. In fact, all five titles that won awards at the recent 2022 Realm Makers event were edited by her. (Find the list here.)
My sentimental side lacks a little polish, and words tend to fail me. So today, in a simple way, on our 41st wedding anniversary, I would like to honor Lisa and say, “I love you” and “Thank you for all that you do.” I am humbled to be married to such an amazing woman of God.
An excellent wife who can find?
She is far more precious than jewels.
The heart of her husband trusts in her,
and he will have no lack of gain.
She does him good, and not harm,
all the days of her life.
“Many women have done excellently,
but you surpass them all.”
Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain,
but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
(Proverbs 31:10-12, 29-30, ESV)
