Reflecting on their courtship and the life Elder Andersen has led, Kathy stated:
I thought he was the most remarkable man I had ever met, and that holds true to this day and forever. . . . Neil is a man of great faith. It is one of the things I love the most about him. He believes that if we trust in God and do our part, miracles will follow.

To describe her husband, Sister Stevenson quoted the following scripture:
"Wherefore, be faithful; stand in the office which I have appointed unto you; succor the weak, lift up the hands which hang down, and strengthen the feeble knees” (D&C 81:5). That is the scripture he constantly quotes, and that’s how he has lived his life.
