“People are either inspired or think we’re slightly bonkers after discovering we were married within a year of meeting, with a blended family of 5 boys aged 8-13. It’s all been a bit of a whirlwind experience and we often pinch ourselves we are doing this. But we are a testimony to what God is able to do when a relationship starts with faith. I had not been on Christian Connection for long and was ready to give up when L responded to my brief message in August 2019. I don’t think either of our circumstances matched our desired lists, but I had spoken a little about my faith and something I shared resonated with L.
One month after our initial contact on Christian Connection we had our first in-person meeting, under the clocktower at Waterloo. We were both extremely nervous but hit it off straight away. What began as a quick coffee culminated with spending most of the day together as we walked for miles and chatted about anything and everything.
As we continued to trust God, commit our future and our children to Him, we began to see so many answers to prayers. When restrictions were lifted we planned a wedding within a week and we were married in August 2020. It was a beautiful and intimate celebration attended by just a few family members and close friends. Within a few weeks of getting married we relocated to a new home, I began a new job and school places suddenly became available for all our boys.
Our top three tips are:
- Keep praying and trusting God.
- Don’t compromise in your faith, or the faith of your future partner.
- Lastly, be flexible with your lists. God has provided us with so much more that we could have asked or imagined. We still have plenty of challenges but they are secure in His hands.
We’re so pleased we could help A & L connect!
