A MESSAGE FOR SINGLES
Ever since I announced last month that I’m getting married, I’ve had lots and lots of single people tell me that our story encouraged has them, and helped them keep believing.
So this month I wanted to say a little bit more about that. If you’re single and it’s your desire to married, read on!
I’ve met some Christians who say, “I wish Jesus would talk to me.” I tell them, “Read your Bible. That’s Jesus, and He’s talking to you.”
I’ve also heard people say, “I wish I knew God’s will for my life.” I tell them, “Read your Bible. His Word is His will. You can’t know Jesus without knowing His Word.”
I know that those answers might sound too simple. You might be thinking, “There’s got to be more to it than read your Bible, read your Bible, read your Bible.”If there were, I would tell you. Instead, I’m telling you that your answers are in the Word.
In case you haven’t already heard, there’s really big news to share with you this month - finally, after 17 years of being single, I got engaged on Christmas, and will be getting married next month!
I’m marrying Bob Salisbury, who is a wonderful businessman from Minneapolis. He is a partner with ECA Marketing, a national annuity and life marketing organization (www.ecamarketing.com) and a 24-year member of Living Word Christian Center, pastored by Mac & Lynn Hammond.
Our wedding is March 11, just a small ceremony in his living room with our families in attendance. After a short honeymoon (during my Spring Break) I’ll return to Tulsa to finish the school year at Rhema, then in May I’ll move to Minnesota.
Lots of people have asked how Bob & I met, so here’s the story:
We just finished your DVD series "Parenting with Purpose" and it has changed our lives! My husband and I are implementing and learning new things every day! I’m truly enjoying my children for the first time in a really long time -- a lot of the pressure about being a "perfect parent" has been lifted because no such thing exists. I find comfort in knowing that all the answers I need to help me be a better parent are in God’s word! Thank you for sharing this knowledge with us!
