Tim and his wife Valissa both grew up in Lebanon, MO (they were in the same 2nd grade class!). They were married in June 2012. They both attended Southwest Baptist University where Valissa majored in Elementary Education and Tim majored in Biblical Studies. Tim later received his M.Div. in Christian Ministry from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He is currently working toward a Ph.D. in Old Testament at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
The Howes have two daughters, Adali and Selah. Tim and Valissa enjoy family time at home, watching Tim Hawkins, reading, and riding in the car together. They also enjoy board games, particularly Settlers of Catan, and baseball. Tim cheers for the Cardinals while Valissa cheers for the Royals, but it is not yet clear the team Adali and Selah will choose. Tim is hopeful that he can persuade them to see the light.
