Today LDS Congresswoman Mia Love began her tenure as the first black Republican woman elected to Congress. She is smart, eloquent, capable, and she loves America. Mia and her husband, Jason, live in Saratoga Springs, Utah, and are the parents of three children.
According to a Deseret News article, "Jason will continue to work in Lehi — he is executive vice president of Xactware, a software company — and Mia will live and work in Washington during the week once her term begins in January, flying home on weekends. She expects to be home for one full week each month.
"The Loves are using technology to compensate for the time they are apart. They set up iPads on their dinner tables — one in Washington and one in Saratoga Springs — and have family prayer and dinner “together,” 2,000 miles apart: 'She eats while we eat,' says Jason.
"He sends her video clips of their children; they watch football games 'together' via FaceTime; she checks in with her children on FaceTime; and she sends him daily calendar invites to call her at noon each day just to talk.
"'Mia is a very talented person,' says Jason. 'If I didn’t feel like she could contribute to our state and our country, I’d keep her home to myself.'”
The years ahead will be quite an adventure for the Jason and Mia Love family. I'm sure they would appreciate our prayers for them and for our country.
Here is a fun video showing Mia on the campaign trail and at home with her family.
