Jake and I both never imagined that we’d use a dating website, let alone find the person we were supposed to marry on one. My good friend had met a really nice girl on christianmingle and they had been dating a year (they are now engaged!) when I finally decided that I would check that site out just for fun. I had made a list of 122 things that I was looking for in my future husband, prayed over it, and knew that God would bring him into my life however he chose to.
Jake’s profile caught my attention within the first few days of being on the site in October 2009. His profile blew me away because he was so passionate about what he stood for and believed in…… not to mention the fact that he was incredibly handsome 🙂 and he lived right in my area!
We sent each other a few smiles and eventually started emailing and chatting. I could not believe how amazing this guy was! We also found out that we go to the same church and were pursuing the same business opportunity. We eventually decided to meet at a business conference in the Wisconsin Dells that we were both going to in November. The first time I saw him in person I could not stop staring… he was exactly the man I had always dreamed of falling in love with.
Shortly after that, we started going to church services and events together and eventually on dates. We officially became boyfriend/girlfriend on January 3, 2010. Jake and I had SO much fun together and became inseparable. We both knew right from the start that this was something very special and thought of marriage entered both our minds very early on in our relationship. On May 19th, 2010, Jake proposed and, of course, I said yes! We got married on October 3rd, 2010…. what can we say? When you know, you know!
Jake and I feel so blessed to have such a great relationship with God at the center of it. By the way, I figured out that Jake was all 122 things on my list before we started dating… God WILL give you the desires of your heart 🙂 Thank you, ChristianMingle, for creating the opportunity for us to meet and for giving me the man of my dreams!
