Building a bond on faith, honesty

• THE BORSTS

St. Patrick Parish in Fremont

Married May 26, 2012


Marriage preparation was a faith-builder for Vicki and Levi Borst, Vicki said.

Father Ronald Battiato, a retired archdiocesan priest living in Cedar Bluffs, helped them in the FOCCUS marriage preparation program and told them that they could overcome all problems if they put God first and then each other.

"We pray together daily, and it reminds us that we are a team and one can't make it without the other," she said.
