Meet Alma and Jeremy Pearson! They currently live in Nashville, TN where Alma is a librarian at Nashville’s Public Library and Jeremy is studying Computer Science at Tennessee State University and works for their IT department!
Alma and Jeremy have been married for four years and eleven days (exactly ;)) and have lived in Ft. Worth, TX prior to moving to Nashville, TN.
When I asked them to explain each other in three words Jeremy described Alma as vivacious, meek and inspirational, while Alma described Jeremy as a deep-thinker, devoted and humorous.
On a typical Saturday you can find them having a fun breakfast together (probably donuts), going to a matinee, going on a walk somewhere, and going out to eat! They really enjoy doing new things together as well.
What do you love about your marriage most?
Jeremy: “With as much certainty as we have, we have no fear of the other going anywhere. No matter what happens, we aren’t going anywhere.”
Alma: “It’s weird to think of life without Jeremy. It may be cliché, but doing life together. Sharing inside jokes…but really, the Lord uses him to teach me more about His grace and how God loves His people.”
What advice would you give to someone who just got engaged?
Jeremy: “Being married is greater than the wedding. Don’t allow the planning to be your hope in the event. It’s hard, and we fail at it.”
Alma: “It’s okay to not be the perfect wife in the first year. You try to plan the perfect wedding and now you’re trying to have the perfect marriage. There is so much going on in your mind with this change, you have to give each other grace. I feel like I know less and less about how to be married, and more and more about the Lord.”
How do you two remain young and fun together?
Jeremy: “Remaining active in community. It helps us to be around all ages and to be in community with people that are walking through different things. This isn’t natural for me, so Alma really helps bringing this to my life. My life would definitely not be as exciting if she wasn’t in it.”
Alma: “Throwing 90’s parties for sure! Sometimes we stay up really late at night! We try to remain silly, stay excited about life and eat fun things, like fruit by the foot.”
