|Springs of Life, 1994|
I first met Byron Atha in the summer of 1982. I was working at the Springs of Life Camp that summer as a nanny for the new camp director's two little boys. Byron was just in from Brazil and on his way to Piedmont Bible College in the fall. He was the BMOC (big man of the camp) for the two weeks he was there that summer.

When I made it to college in 1983 wouldn't you know I met up with Mr. Atha again. He sat beside me in chapel where the seating was assigned and alphabetical! Atha, Beckner.... He didn't seem to remember me from camp the year before, but I remembered him and thought he was sort of cute. By the end of my freshmen year we were dating and the rest is history.
