Are You Ready for a Real Life Love Story? {FAITHFUL LIFE #2}

Matt and I have shared our story many times over the years.

Late into the evening with old friends. Over a cup of coffee with new friends. At a Valentine’s Banquet. With singles who needed encouragement. With couples who could use a good laugh. And with our son’s college friends across the country.

We always tell our story together—him and me.

I think it’s mostly because he doesn’t really tell it right. He gets people to take his side in the story, but that’s just not fair. So I have to get my word in there too–and I’m already counting on you to take my part in this, okay?. 🙂

Falling in love

Maybe it’s not all that unusual of a story.
Single girl meets single guy.
Starts with a letter.
Ends with a kiss.
Just another love story.

Except maybe for the part where we decided to marry six days after we met.

And that we’ve been loving each other ever since.
Maybe that’s not quite so typical.
About how we knew we wanted to get married only six days after our first date.
And how before that, I declared that I wouldn’t go out with him “if he was the last man on earth.”
Yet somehow ended up in his arms in the end.

It’s a story about an ordinary guy and an ordinary girl.

A story about falling in love. About insecurities, miscommunications, self-doubts, wonder and a kiss.

Two people looking for love and waiting on God.

A true-life love story.

Matt and I share the very romantic – nearly tragic, but definitely funny – story of how we on our FAITHFUL LIFE podcast today.
