#082 Heather Le Roux Beltran: So Much Love
Heather Le Roux Beltran was born in Indiana, but moved to California when she was 1 year old, so don’t think that she’s anything but a California girl. Heather had a good childhood (which included a horse) and she loves her parents, who she calls the best people ever. She finds inspiration in her parents (who married, divorced, were unmarried one year, and then remarried)—and the Christian lives they have led. Heather married young, but as she got older she realized that her first husband wasn’t the one for her and became unhappy. The worst part of the divorce was that her ex-husband cut her off from her step-daughter, Katie, and she still misses her. After the divorce, Heather strayed from the Christian path, partied a lot, did a lot of drugs, and taught herself to be a house DJ. A year after the divorce, Heather met her second husband, Robert. They dated for three years, then broke up (see parents, above) and were apart for 3 years. During that time, Heather dated a guy who was really into drugs and mind-altering experiences and that got her thinking about God again, which is the best thing she could have gotten out of that relationship. She left that guy and started going to church again. Heather reconnected with Robert and they got married. Heather loves how patient Robert is, how good-looking he is, and how good and godly he is (he always helps the neighborhood widows). Heather also loves how Robert loves everything about her, including how wild she is (which he does, ask him). They’ve been married for 4 years and love their house, their dog, their cat, their fish, their chickens, and their ducks. They eat a lot of eggs. They want to have a baby too, but it’s been difficult, emotionally taxing. They have tried different fertility treatments, but may decide to adopt. There is so much love between them and so much joy (one of her nicknames is the Joy Spot) that it would be great if another person got to grow up feeling all of that.
