the story of John and Kelly
Over the next few months we wrote over 75 pages worth of e-mails and messages back and forth to one another about our religious backgrounds, our hopes for the future, our thoughts about friendships, relationships, and co-workers, and even what it means to be a part of a Christ-centered marriage.
“He calleth His own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.” So His merciful and miraculous leading is individual—“Thou (singular) shalt remember all the way which the Lord thy God led thee.” The temptation is great to imitate or to expect the same manner of guidance which God has given another. “What is that to Thee; follow thou Me.” His Word abounds in examples of His separate leading of His sheep.
(from the journal of Elisabeth Elliot, quoted in Devotedly by Valorie Elliot Shepard)
Looking for more love stories?
There are few love stories as enchanting as that of Hudson Taylor, the pioneering missionary, and Maria Dyer. Their relationship and short marriage flourished in the bitterest of circumstances because their lives were firmly rooted in their devotion to God, as well as to each other. They were a perfect match, (though not perfect people), a couple who show us how to share our lives at the deepest level.Find on Amazon
