Jacob 6:12 "O, be Wise, what can I say more."

  I'm married!
I am happily married to the beautiful and talented Wendy Ann Olsen Wise. We were married to each other for time and all eternity on December 19, 1997 in the Mt. Timpanogos Temple! For our honeymoon we went to Salt Lake City, Utah, Puerto Peñasco, Mexico, and Mesa, Arizona. Hard to believe it has been more than 8 wonderful years already.
 I have another son!
In 2008 our son Andrew Kevin Wise was born.
 I have a daughter!
In 2006 our daughter Lydia Ann Wise was born.
 I have another son!
In 2004 our son Benjamin Charles Wise was born. Benjamin is a joy to have in our home. He talks a lot now, and loves pretending. He is our adventurer, and insists on doing everything big brother is doing.
 I have a son!
In 2002 our son Jacob Brinton Wise was born. He was 7 lbs 5 oz at birth, even though he was 4 weeks early! With his head also large (14.5 inches) everyone tells Wendy she's lucky she didn't have to wait until he was full term. I am excited beyond comparison to have little Jacob in my home. Jacob is now 4 years old. He loved playing hide and seek and building things with his trains, legos, and blocks.
 We lost a son
In 2000 our first son Brian Levi Wise was stillborn due to placental abruption and pre-eclampsia. We miss Brian tons, though we are comforted to know that we will be together forever someday.
We moved to Arizona!
We moved to Arizona in June 1999. For a time, Wendy and I both worked for Motorola. Now Wendy stays at home with the boys. In 2005 we moved down the street to our current residence.

I served in the Guatemala City North Mission from May 1994 to June 1996, where I taught in English in Belize, Spanish, and Kekchi in Polochic. Wendy and I recently took a Caribbean cruise and had a chance to visit a few of the people I worked with in Corozal Town, Belize.
