Praying for Your Future Husband

Praying for Your Future Husband

It’s not a big secret that I’ve been praying for my future husband for years.

Friday, 29th April, 2011 was a never-to-be-forgotten day. I wasn’t interested in the media reports of Miss Middleton’s relationship with Prince William. The royal wedding, however, was different.
