TERRY AND JENNY BROWN
For Terry and Jenny Brown, it’s not what you want to be, but how you want to live!
For Jenny, her heart has always been devoted to helping children who needed love. Ever since she can remember, she has found herself fueled by the desire to help children who can’t help themselves. Throughout her adolescence and into adulthood, Jenny found as many opportunities to work with young children as possible. Being around kids that needed love and attention inspired her to establish a career as a teacher where she could influence the lives of children day in and day out.
While Jenny was out there changing the world one child at a time, Terry was busy continuing his family’s legacy through service to his country. Terry Brown grew up in a military family where passion and pride have always been rooted in devotion to America. In fact, the Brown family has dedicated over half a century of service to their country. So to say that hard work and commitment were both major themes throughout Terry’s life is an understatement. Whether it was through honorable leadership positions at the United States Air Force Academy or in his role as a pilot, Terry has always found his purpose through his commitment to serving others and the country he calls home.
When Terry and Jenny met, there was no question why their contagious energy and desire to serve others connected them together on such a deep level. They were immediately drawn to each other. Terry fell in love with Jenny and her passion for helping children, and Jenny was dazzled by Terry and his ambition and impressive accomplishments as a pilot and a leader. A few years later, the two were married, and they set off on their way to build a life together.
After a few years into marriage, their life seemed close to perfect. It wasn’t until they took a closer look, however, when Terry and Jenny decided they needed to redefine their vision for their life and their marriage. Although they were very successful in their respective careers, Terry and Jenny concluded that, for them, a successful life shouldn’t be determined by the parameters of a traditional career path. Instead, a successful life for the Browns should be filled with time together as a couple, family adventures, and pursuing an over-arching purpose. And they knew this kind of life would be nearly impossible to achieve if they were chasing separate goals within their respective careers.
As a result of a great deal of hard work and perseverance, they were able to walk away from their traditional careers early on in their life together. The Browns figured out a way to unite their passions in a way that provided long-term fulfillment in their marriage and the opportunity to become full-time husband and wife as well as full-time parents to their three children.
