“I am grateful that as Jared and I dated, we were “under” our parents, who kept a loving eye on us and helped us to sort out tangled issues.

As a result of making this “list” I also was convicted to become a woman that a man of this caliber would desire to marry. That was a bit more challenging than making the list.

praying about a house

When Nathan began praying about buying the house across the street from us last fall, the Lord started impressing on his heart that it was time to marry. This was not exactly what Nathan thought was going to be a result of his praying about a house purchase!

The End.
