"This may sound crazy, but the moment I laid eyes on him I felt like he was The One," says Jennifer. "As we began to get to know each other I was able to confirm what I was feeling. Shawn is everything that I asked God for and everything that God knew I needed."

"My mother brags about her Son-In-Law to be all the time," Jennifer shares. "She told me when she met him she knew he was the man that I would marry. My mother has never said that to me about anyone. I love that Shawn let her in on the surprise proposal and asked her permission for my hand in marriage."

"My friends were a little skeptical at first because things were moving so fast," Jennifer admits. "But once they got to meet him, they fell in love with him. I’ve had some friends tell me after a few months into our relationship that they can’t wait for the wedding."

"What made Jennifer stand out was her love for Christ, her truthfulness about her past, and where God was taking her," Shawn shares. "I loved her sincerity in what she was seeking Christ to give her in a man and her obedience to stay abstinent until her wedding night."

"We are definitely enjoying planning the wedding but more importantly preparing for the marriage," says Jennifer. "We are currently taking a 12 week premarital class at our church and it has been an amazing journey. It forces us to work through issues that we didn’t even know were there. I recommend pre-marital counseling to every engaged couple."

"When we’re (finally!) husband and wife, I can’t wait to wake up to hit sweet face every morning," Jennifer shares. "I can’t wait to grow old with him."
