My Handsome Husband


Today I write about my sweet man, Joshua Mark! We have been married for 3 months :) Daily, I am honored to know that I am His. It is a true blessing to have been given the gift of marriage at such a young age. It was beyond obvious that God had a purpose for Josh & my relationship from the beginning. He made a way...

Josh is so selfless and loves me with an unexpected love! He models what it means to love unconditionally. What a true gift! I love waking up to this man each morning & can't wait to see him after work.

Some say the "honeymoon" phase of marriage will ware off soon... no thank you, sirree! I believe having a thriving marriage is a CHOICE. It does not just happen. We have to choose to actively grow our marriage & allow God to shape it. We are SO not perfect. I am SO NOT perfect. We admit that (step 1, right?) God longs for us to confess our imperfections to him - we do that often... and learn from it each time!

Today, Joshua Mark - I love you & I want you to know how much I believe in you! Thank you for leading our marriage and being a strong man :) I am honored to live my Life as YOUR Wife!

Ecc. 3:11, "He makes all things beautiful in his time..."

Rhea that was beautiful! I am going to be engaged soon myself...and we are both striving to honor and cherish eachother even now. We're preparing as much as we can now for an amazing life together traveling the world as missionaries reaching young people with the message of purity. Anyway I"m so excited for you and Josh...much love to you both!
