Our Story

In the summer of 2010, Steve Johnson and Dr Nancy Miller-Johnson met on line at “CatholicMatch.com”.  They were mutually exhausted with the dating scene and were about to cancel their on-line subscription.  Their story begins with a last minute “meet for coffee” get together that flourished into a miraculous love story.

In 2004, Dr Miller suddenly lost her 1st husband to cancer which left her a single mother with six children ages 3-16.  Steve was also previously married but was shocked when his wife ended their marriage with three young children and divorced in 2005.

Steve and Nancy made the choice not grow bitter but to trust in the Lord’s plans.  Two and half years after meeting for the first time, their wedding was celebrated at the National Shrine of the Apostle Paul (Cathedral of Saint Paul) by the Archbishop of Saint Paul and Minneapolis and co-celebrated by three additional priests.

Their mission with SimplyThankful.com is to joyfully inspire others to trust God’s plan and remain obedient to His commandments; to boldly express the Truth.  To boldly express the truth no matter how much our secular society resists God’s order and to always remain… Simply Thankful.
