Justin and I first met on ChristianMingle in July 2011. Although my preference settings were set to a 50 mile radius of Wichita, Kansas, I happened to come across Justin’s profile. He lived more than 500 miles away in Littleton, Colorado! In spite of the distance, I reached out to him and we began communicating online. After a few emails back and forth, we began spending the evenings chatting on the phone. Two months later, I decided to make the 500 mile drive to meet Justin in person for the first time.
Some people don’t believe in love at first sight, but we both knew from the first moment that we saw each other that something very special was happening. We spent the next 21 months hiking, paddle boarding, biking, and traveling the world!
On May 19th, 2013, Justin got down on one knee and proposed in a palace in Budapest! It was a fairy tale proposal and our wedding is planned for May 25, 2014.
I knew that I was going to marry Justin because he was unlike any other man I had ever dated. I love his heart because he loves the Lord more than himself, others, and even me. God is so good and I am so glad that I followed my heart, and signed up for ChristianMingle when I did!
