A New Year, A New Decade, A New Life


The Stremhousen story is one of loss, God’s surprises, and an amazing new family.

Reading Judy Stremler’s story, you see a faith filled woman beginning her life as a widow and mom to five children. In 2005, Darrell Stremler entered heaven.

In 2008, Bob Venhousen’s wife, Sherri entered heaven leaving him to parent their four children.

On January 2, 2010, I delighted to attend the wedding of Judy Stremler and Bob Venhousen. Their picture tells the story: nine children and now a new daughter-in-law ages twenty five to nine, a blended, blessing filled dozen!

Their new shared life verse says it all.

Psalm 115: 1 “Not to us, Lord, not to us but to your name be the glory, because of your love and faithfulness.”
