5 Years of Friendship, 2 Years of Courtship, 5 Years of Marriage, and...

...still going strong! 

Tomorrow hubby and I will be celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary and we are so excited!

Hubby kicked off a little pre-celebrating last Friday, when he came home with everything he could think of that I might like: iced coffee, chocolate, and a bouquet of fresh calla lilies. This was same flower that my bouquet was made up of on our wedding day (nice touch babe;)

I shared with you the story of you how we met in this post. But, I never went into detail about our courtship. Nevertheless, seeing as a friend recently suggested that I blog more on the topic of singleness and courtship, and because I hope this blog will be a source of encouragement for both married and unmarried people, I am working on a post about our courtship story.

For now, here are a few resources that I either found to be helpful during the single/courting season of my life, or that I came across after I was married, but would have found helpful before:

Courtship and Sexual Purity:

Every Woman's Battle by Shannon Ethridge

Biblical Womanhood and Submission: 

The Power of A Praying Wife by Stormie Omartian

Also, Christa Taylor's blog, Empowered Traditionalist is a great site for young women who are single, courting, and concerned with virtuous living. 

Check our her post: What To Do While Single.


  1. Looking forward to the courtship posts.

  2. Congratulations on reaching five years in a Godly marriage. May you have many many more together!

  3. May you have many more eyars of love and happiness. God bless

    God bless.
    This is wonderful.
