the story of Aimee Beery & Japeth Stauffer
“Now put yourself in my shoes, I had never met this girl until 10 days ago and now I was calling to ask her father for permission to court his daughter. Not date, but court, with the full intention that if I won her heart, I would marry her! To top it off, the only picture I had seen of this guy was him all puckered up to play the harmonica!”
When you hear a love story it is the description of something that happened, not a prescription of how to make that very same thing happen in your own life.
