Prom 2016

The dance was in the 481 barn. It was a great place to dance, giving plenty of room for everyone to dance. We have worked with DJ at last year's prom too . He is friendly and professional but most importantly he plays the best dancing music!

Venue 481 went above and beyond when they flipped the dinner hall to accommodate laser tag! It had been planned for outside but due to the rain , had to be moved indoors. The kids had a blast with it and we were so happy they didn't have to miss out on it  
As vendors ourselves it is really nice to work with other vendors. Each of us doing our own thing yet working together simultaneously to make wonderful memories happen for many people wether it's a wedding, a prom, or other events! Thank you to you all and to the teachers and faculty of Niangua school for the warm welcome!because of the weather. We have to admit, we had a lot of fun watching them!

The Love Story of Terry and Amanda Asher

How we met,, my sister was dating one of Terry's friends and that is how my sister met Terry and then she introduced us in Hannah's parking lot one night in 2001, but before we met in person, we had talked on the phone a few times and when we finally did meet in person, first thing he tried to do was kiss me and I was to shy and so therefore he just thought I didn't like him lol and when he asked me to marry him a few months later, I was over visiting him and he was sitting in a chair and I was sitting on his lap and he asked me to marry him, The first few months we were dating I wouldn't even eat in front of him, I was so shy he thought I didn't even like him lol I was however always giggly around him especially when he would try to kiss me and I still am at times lol I remember though before I met Terry that I never heard of Niangua, I didn't even know if I was pronouncing it correctly when I would say it,, and little did I know, as I was standing there in Hannah's parking lot that night when I met him, that this little town I never heard of would soon be my Home where we are raising our family. 
We were married down in Waynesville Mo. We have 4 kids, 3 girls and a boy ages 13, 11, 6 and 3 months old ,  Terry and I has been married for 10 years, but have been together for 15 years total.

The Love Story of Eddie and Stephanie Miller

We met 28 years ago in 1987 through a mutual friend. I was 16 and he had just turned 20. Our first date didn't go too well because we had friends that didn't think we should date. He asked me out again and by the end of our second date we were inseparable. Obviously we had both seen other people before but this was different. When I would tell people that I loved him they'd say "you're only 16!! You don't know what love is!" But I knew and so did he. After dating for 6 months or so we found out we were going to have a baby. We were both excited but were very scared too. We thought about getting married then but all those people who doubted us before were really doubting us then. My own dad even said please don't get married. So we didn't. His mom and dad helped us get a little trailer and set it up and we moved in it. I won't lie, after Bryan was born in 1989 it was really hard for both of us. We were just kids our selves with a new baby! But we were bound and determined to be good parents and to prove everybody wrong. And we were still madly in love with one another. We didn't have a whole lot of money but we made do with what we had. We spent a lot of time at the river with our little boy and doing things that didn't cost anything but we were spending time with him and each other. When Bryan was 2 we decided to move to Springfield. The jobs were very scarce where we lived at that time. About a month after we moved, we found out we were pregnant again. As soon as we found out Eddie asked me to marry him. We didn't have the money for a wedding so we made arrangements to get married in his parents living room by his moms cousin who is a judge. Don't get me wrong, that day is very special to me. No we weren't having a big elaborate wedding and I was 5 months pregnant. But none of that mattered to me because I was marrying my best friend!! We had some family there and a few friends and it just happened to be the best day of my life!! We went to the lake of the Ozarks that night and played ski ball on the strip and ate dinner at Wendy's. It was OUR special day. We never thought things could get any better or change, but the day I became Mrs. Eddie Miller our lives were forever changed for the better! Everything was different but in a good way! So we started a new chapter in our lives as husband and wife, as best friends, and as parents to two little boys. In 1993 we found a little house to buy and raise our family in. It wasn't a big fancy house but it was ours. We immediately started the remodel process to make it how we wanted it. Then in 2004 when Bryan was 15 and Justin was 12 we found out we were going to have another baby. We were all excited beyond belief!! In January of 2005 our little princess Kylah was born. This year marks our 25th wedding anniversary and Eddie asked me to marry him again. He feels like I need to have the wedding that I deserved but never got. But what he doesn't realize is that September 14, 1991 was the best day of my life and nothing will ever take its place. But I am honored to be able to say "I do" to him again and would do it a million more times to make him happy. Bryan is 27 years old now and lives in Springfield with his girlfriend Bri who is a school teacher. He works at Murney and Assoc. selling real estate. Jay is 24 years old and lives in Niangua. In 2012 he blessed us with our first grandchild, Malakai. That little guy is the best thing that has happened to us since our own kids were born! Jay is the at risk teacher and he coaches basketball. Kylah is a typical 11 year old girl and still everyone's princess.

Choices Pregnancy Center

                                                        Choices Pregnancy Center
    A mother walking with her young daughter asks her, “Do you know why we’re walking?”  Daughter replies, “To save the babies.”  The Choices Pregnancy Center hosted the Together For Life walk on May 10, 2015 at the Marshfield fair grounds.  Approximately 225 people participated.  This number is up from 175 last year.  The weather was perfect making it an awesome day for the community to come out and show their support. 

    It was a heart-warming sight to see so many fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, friends and family all walking or running to help young parents in our community give their babies a happy and healthy start in life.  Some were pushing strollers, some were holding hands.  Some walked with their dogs and grandparents walked with their grandchildren.  Bat Man even joined in on the fun! 

The Marshfield community of churches whole-heartedly supports Choices Pregnancy Center.  Multiple denominations pulling together to preserve God’s greatest gift, the gift of life.  Working with other sponsors who support Choices Pregnancy Center is making an enormous impact in many lives.  Mentors are trained with a faith-based curriculum at the Center.

    Services at the Pregnancy Care Center include parenting classes, an ultra sound for a first look at baby, adoption counseling, supplies and many other resources.  Total money raised at the Together For Life Walk was $26,291.64 and will be used to continue these wonderful services. 

    We at In My Heart Photography are honored to sponsor the Choices Pregnancy Center.  We believe that God walked amongst the people in this worthy cause and will continue to bless many people through the hearts that make it all happen.
