Mr. & Mrs. Clay Dowdy, fell in love as a tween and a teen, but because they were from different backgrounds and lived on opposite sides of the country, that love was tested by distance and silence. However, Mr. Clay searched and found Dr. Arlene after more than 30 years. They were married, and in their 9th year of marriage the boundaries of their love were tested again  when Dr. Arlene suffered a sudden stroke. In the strength of their love, Dr. Arlene's recovery has been nothing but a miracle orchestrated by God Himself, just like the rest of their lives. These two work together, showing people what it means to fight against the odds. Our prayer is that some part of our website reaches you and adds value to your life in some way, and that  you will reach out to  another in love. 

They are very active in the community with their church and especially with Don Evans Players and other performance and cultural activities. You can find Dr. Arlene on stage acting, speaking and dancing, with and without community children, while Mr. Clay is not far away with camera in hand.
