Are a Happy Family and Love
By Sean and Laurie Lewis
Sean was working in a blood center in
Houston, Texas one day when the Westfield Ward in the Houston area
came in to give blood. The missionaries (elders) were there and

bedroom rang at 11:30pm.
I answered the phone and it was Sean.
We talked for a while and then we started dating. January of 1997,
Sean and I moved to Albuquerque, NM. That summer of 1997 the bishop
in Bear Canyon Ward at the time married us.
Two weeks after we were married, I
was taking the discussions and became a member that August. March of
1999, we had our first son (Micah) in Albuquerque., NM. When our little
Micah was 18 months, we moved back to Houston, Texas.
We had our 2nd son (Drew) when Micah
was 2.5 years old. We were sealed in the Houston Temple October

(March 2007), our Micah turned 8 and is now joining the scouts and
will be baptized in April 2007. We are a happy family and love the
