Who is willing to admit that they want an amazing love story?! I know that I sure am. What if I told you that your love story begins NOW–with you!
Every little girl dreams of the day that she will one day wear a beautiful white dress, walk down a decorated aisle with her father on her arm, and say “I Do!” to the man of her dreams–the one she has been waiting for. Amanda Leak was the same way, she dreamed this way just like we do; however, her preparation time was cut a little short! What do I mean? She was engaged and married in one day. Yeah, you read that right… ONE day! I don’t know about you, but I just am not sure that I could do that. I may not be able to do that, and you may not either, but this was the Lord’s perfect plan for Ryan and Amanda Leak.
Remember when I told you that your love story begins now, and it begins with you? Ryan and Amanda share their individual stories of “preparation” or waiting, so to speak, starting before they even met each other down to the moment they committed themselves to each other forever. As individuals, they were both totally consumed with God and living life committed to Him. The desire to be married was there for both of them, but they knew that the Lord had yet to bring the one into their lives. Instead of becoming complacent or choosing to settle in life and in love, they used their extra time to grow and become more like the Lord Jesus. They used their waiting period as a means to prepare for that one day that they would become one.
Ryan and Amanda have a unique story that have inspired people across the globe, and I encourage you to pick up this sweet read, The One: An Amazing Love Story Starts With You. Maybe your engagement and wedding will not take place on the same day, but who knows maybe it will! In the mean time wait, grow, prepare, love others, serve God!
