Remember that name? I sure do. In 2013, his season on The Bachelor aired and it was riveting.
Through a mutual acquaintance, I had an opportunity to meet him right after he’d starred on the show and won the heart of Catherine. We shared a conversation about many of the characteristics that fans everywhere admired him for, including his firm spiritual beliefs and sense of morality.
Sean and Catherine now have three rambunctious children and manage several businesses, including a distinct line of home furnishings called Home by Sean and Catherine Lowe.
Enjoy the conversation below and please leave Sean a comment of encouragement! Then, follow him on Instagram – @seanlowesku and Twitter – @seanlowe09 if you want a good laugh every day! (His humor and wit are awesome!)
Love you fiercely,
- If you could describe this season of your life in one word, what word would it be? Why?
Chaotic. We have a three-year-old, two-year-old, and a three-month-old. Every day is an adventure with two toddlers running around the house.
- In terms of your career, before you knew you would be _______________, you almost . . .
Before I knew I would be a “Reality TV Personality” and business owner, I almost sold insurance for a living (family profession which I always knew was not for me).
- In what ways do you ensure that your career path serves the purposes of God and encourages His people?
Being in the public eye, I’m very conscious of the fact that I’m representing Christ through all that I do, so I make a concentrated effort to show his love at every turn.
- If this were your last year on earth, what would you want to spend your time doing?
I think I’d want to spend most of my time with my family and loved ones. That said, I’d probably also feel a much stronger urge to evangelize (yes, I realize I need that same urge now), so I imagine I’d spend a lot of time with my friends who don’t know Jesus.
- If you could tell your younger self anything, what would it be?
Don’t skip class and take college seriously! By the grace of God, I’ve been able to overcome my earlier self’s laziness, but I wish I would have taken school more seriously so I could have avoided the painful life lessons that were soon to follow.
- Fill in the blank. I am not a very _____________ person.
I am not a pessimistic person.
I usually always see the bright side no matter the circumstances (and it sometimes drives my wife crazy).
- Name your biggest strength and your biggest weakness? How has each served you as you’ve fulfilled your purpose?
Biggest Strength – I’ve always felt like anything is possible in life because I’ve had an amazing family behind me speaking that truth to me.
Biggest Weakness – I’m not the most empathetic person in the world. I didn’t quite realize that until getting married, which doesn’t always serve me well when my wife is expressing her feelings to me. I’m working on getting better!
- What has been the most difficult season in your life? How did you get through it?
The first couple years of marriage were really difficult for us. We were two people with completely different expectations for one another and that created a lot of conflict and pain. All glory to God, we’ve been able to learn and grow from those first years and have a wonderful marriage today!
- When is the last time you laughed so hard that it hurt?
Recently, we were in the car with the kids and a storm was just rolling in. I tried to make a thunder sound for my kids, and my wife laughed at how bad it was. I said, “Let’s hear your best thunder noise,” and what came next sounded like a dying cat. We all laughed until we cried – it’s the little things that make me laugh the hardest.
- If you could make three wishes and there were no limitations on what you could request, what would you wish for?
1) Dogs would live as long as humans. 2) My kids would know how to pick up after themselves. 3) My wife would laugh at my jokes.
