Chris and I met on ChristianMingle on May 5, 2013. We both knew that God truly orchestrated our meeting; we were both very close to giving up on online dating. Chris was ready to throw in the towel, but his friend urged him to keep trying, so he did. I was really not in the mood to chat with anyone, but when a chat box popped up from Chris, something nudged me to talk to this guy. Many emails, texts, and phone calls later we decided to meet! On May 26, 2013, we met at Knoebels Amusement Resort and immediately hit it off! It was such a fun day together, and we both hated to leave at the end of it. Needless to say, Knoebels has become an extremely special place for us and we cannot wait to go back!
We had several other dates between then and June 9th, when we officially started dating. We believed our relationship didn’t happen on accident, so we made sure to constantly keep Christ at the center of our relationship, and always went to Him in prayer every step of the way. Some may say we had a quick dating relationship, but God definitely gave us a peace about moving forward, so we took the next step. On Thanksgiving night, November 28, 2013, Chris proposed! It’s been an amazing journey together and incredible to see God working in our relationship! We fall more in love every day, and are so thankful for God’s work in our lives. Chris is definitely more than I could have ever hoped or prayed for in a future husband. Our wedding is set for August 16, 2014, and I cannot wait to spend the rest of my life with the man God placed into my life through ChristianMingle!
Some advice we can offer to others is to never give up on God’s plan and work in your life! Sometimes you may want to, but He has someone amazing for you that could be just one “chat” away!
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” ~Jeremiah 29:11
