That’s when he felt he heard God speak to his heart.She and her husband still acted like newlyweds, and she affirmed that he was “worth the wait.” There are many different roads to marriage and many different types of marriage.Embracing the fact that mine might not be the “typical” story (marrying in my 20s, having children young, etc.) allowed me to be excited about what God did have in store for me.
