Hello! My name is Cari La Tour. I’m 20 years old, and I recently married the love of my life, Trigg.
This is Trigg 🙂 He’s 22, and he changed my last name! We live in Lincoln, Arkansas, which is just outside of Fayetteville. He graduated from the University of Arkansas with a degree in Computer Engineering in May, and now he’s working for an electronic design company near our home. I was majoring in Applied Mathematics at the U of A, but I won’t be finishing that degree since we have a precious baby girl coming this November.
I grew up just a few miles north of the Gulf of Mexico, in Bayou Vista, Louisiana. My dad is the minister of music at Bayou Vista Baptist Church, and that’s my home church! I learned about the love of my Savior Jesus there, and I got saved and baptized in that church when I was seven years old. I’m forever thankful that my parents raised me to learn the truth about God’s Word, taught me about Jesus, and brought me to a church where I could grow.
Trigg grew up in Fayetteville. His dad grew up in Ville Platte, Louisiana, with my mom and her siblings. And that is how we met! I don’t actually remember meeting Trigg (because we were babies then), but we started dating when I was 15 (almost 16) and Trigg was 18. We lived 10 hours apart for 2 and a half years. Talk about difficult! But last May I graduated from high school, and…
Trigg asked me to marry him on the beautiful island of Maui! We were there with his family for the wedding of some of our friends. And on the night before we flew home, he asked me if we could have our own wedding! Just not in Hawaii 😉
So after my busy summer, I moved 500 miles away from home to Fayetteville, Arkansas to attend college…and get married! Now, after two years, we recently bought our first home together in Lincoln. We’re members at Cross Church Fayetteville, where we’ve already gotten plugged in and formed so many Godly relationships.
I hope to use this page to share about my life and the love that Christ Jesus shows to me. Cari La Tour: the Lovesome La Tour.
Lovesome: inspiring love; lovely; lovable.
