Dan Mohlers son, Adam, said he is pleased with the news of the family’s first marriage.
“It was a very tough situation for him,” said Adam Mohlers.
“He was in and out of rehab for some time.
He was on the autism spectrum, and he was a little bit of a wild child.
But he had so much hope.”
Adam Mohlers, who has two older sons, had been trying to start a family with his wife, Heather, for several years before he met Heather.
It was during their wedding in 2013 that Adam and Heather met their new husband, Dan.
“I’m a big believer in God, but also in Jesus Christ and he’s just the way it is, he’s not perfect,” said Heather Mohlers about her husband.
“We just needed a man that was just like him.”
The couple met on the internet in 2010.
It wasn’t long before they began dating.
“We went through a lot of ups and downs, and I think we just came to a point where we needed to move forward,” said Dan.
“I knew I wanted to be a pastor, but I also knew I needed a woman.”
Dan, who works as a financial advisor, says the marriage has helped ease the stress of raising a family.
“Our kids have been blessed and raised in such a loving and loving environment,” he said.
“It was always a big challenge, but it’s been a lot easier than it would have been with any other kind of arrangement.”
For his first wife, he says he was very aware of how important the relationship was to her and their children.
“She is a great mom,” he explained.
“She does the best she can with the money she has, but she knows she is also very responsible for raising her children.
It is so important to her.”
The Mohlers say the couple had a special bond.
“The first time we met was the day after we had the baby,” said Mohlers of his wife’s first pregnancy.
“Her baby was born in our living room.
She had her first baby with me, and it was an amazing experience for both of us.”
Dan Mohlers is now the Pastor of a Pentecostal church in Calgary.
(CBC News)”I think I had this one moment where I was really touched by God and really thankful for the way he loved me,” he continued.
“And it was really an amazing feeling to know that I had someone who loved me that had a baby.
It’s amazing to see that.”
Dan says he has received support from many other people in the church, both his wife and his son, who are now adults.
“People have been so supportive of our church, which is really wonderful,” he laughed.
“When I was a pastor in the United States, we would be told that we couldn’t do it.
Now, I have so many wonderful pastors who love me and my family, and they want to help me as much as I can.”
The first-time couple say they have so much in common.
“There is just this sense of a shared mission, of a mission to serve,” said Daniel.
“There’s this idea that all we are doing is helping people, but the truth is, it’s a big deal.”
