Two to Tango

Troy and Kathleen Billings live in a rural western suburb of Chicago with their five beautiful children, ages baby to college bound, and have three little souls in Heaven. They met at the University of Notre Dame when paired up to perform a dance together for a Christmas show. It was not until several years later when, by the grace of God, their lives reunited and they fell in love, thus beginning their real dance together in the Sacrament of Marriage. Troy is a Senior Global Project Manager for SAP, an international IT Consulting firm; and Kathleen has a BA in theology from Franciscan University of Steubenville, which she leverages as a project manager of her home, a homeschooler, and inspiring others through her blog: “Seasons of the Heart and Home.”  Together Troy and Kathleen started from the ground up and currently direct a vibrant parish based marriage ministry. Kathleen also blogs at seasonsoftheheartandhome.com.
