the story of Rebekah Wilhelm & Jared Randolph
“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. They never gave us orders and they refrained from giving perpetual advice; they knew we were adults and thus had no interest in micromanaging our relationship. Yet they also knew that we needed help, and were glad to give it.”
My favorite love stories are true ones. In fact, I've probably read or heard the stories of nearly 150 Christian couples, each one as unique as a fingerprint. Some couples called it "courtship," some called it "dating," and some met and married long before the terms acquired their present meanings. God's kindness is evident in them all.
