“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.”
Chad and I went to high school together. He was one year ahead of me. We were both quiet and reserved, so we were just acquaintances. We reconnected on ChristianMingle on January 1, 2011. Chad decided to join the site after a friend told him about it. This was his first attempt at online dating. One of the matches that came up was me, so he sent me a message. I received an email from Chad, but realized that with the free membership, I couldn’t open it. I decided to ignore it, but something kept nagging me, so paid for a subscription and opened his email. I am so glad I did! We were engaged on November 12, 2011, and married on June 9, 2012.
