Coming in May — #MarriagePrayers: 31 Verses to Pray for Your Marriage

How much do you pray for your marriage?

June 1, 2016 is Scott’s and my 20th anniversary. Twenty years, y’all. {Yes, of course, I was a mere child when we married.

Those two 24-year-olds who said, “I do,” were clueless about how hard marriage was going to be. But those two were also completely unprepared for how beautiful marriage was going to be as well.
