This was one of the most enjoyable interviews ever! What a fun couple! Great music and a great chat about marriage!
Jim and Mary Quinn are members of Congregation Shema Yisrael in
Rochester, New York. The Quinns grew up in Webster, New York, met in
high school but didn't date until fourteen years later. Jim was
raised Catholic and neither had a close relationship with the Lord. Mary
always knew there was a God and gave her heart to Yeshua when she was
fourteen. She always felt a special love for the Jewish people.
It took Jim a bit longer to give up his worldly ways, and it took
nearly dying in the hospital from drugs and alcohol for him to realize
that he needed the Lord. With Mary's help, he turned his life over to
Yeshua in April, 1984. Years later, Jim learned of his Jewish roots and
once he visited a Messianic congregation he knew, he had found what was
missing in his life.
The couple has been together for 31 years, raised two beautiful
daughters, and live on a beautiful farm in the Rochester, New York area.
Mary retired from teaching art after 38 years, and Jim is currently
teaching art at Nazareth College, occasionally displaying his
magnificent paintings in local galleries, and playing guitar with the
worship team at Shema Yisrael.
Jim and Mary have a unique and comical look at married life and have
lots to share about the joys, wonders and challenges of marriage.
