Tricia Says: “I’m Tricia Goyer, and I’ve been married to John for twenty-three years. We have six children ages 24, 21, 19, 6, 3, and 3! Our older kids turned out so great that we started on Round Two via adoption. Our oldest son is married to Katie and they have two little ones, Clayton and Chloe.
