Our Second Anniversary… Dating and Marriage Questions

Dating and Marriage Questions

Today, August 20th, 2013, marks our second year wedding anniversary!  

Even after two years of marriage, I still have days where this hardly seems real.  I often find myself staring at Ronnie in disbelief that he is actually in my life. So long I waited for him and now here we are… two years from the day we said, “I do.”  Truly God makes everything beautiful in His time!

This morning we greeted each other with “Happy Anniversary” wishes over and over again. By 7:00 am we said “Happy Anniversary” at least two dozen times. Hahaha…

I suppose that is one of the benefits of waiting.  You easily appreciate the blessing that God has given.  How could I ever take for granted someone I waited so long for?  I would wait another eighteen years for a love like this.

The arrival of this occasion has taught me to trust that God always has His best in store for me.  The blessings that God has prepared for my future are worth rejoicing over right now.  Jesus is purely awesome.  There is no one like Him.

As we commemorate our second anniversary there is no way I can leave the Love and Grace blog out of the celebration. I asked my dear Heaven sent hubby to do a vlog with me and he said yes!!!

So over the next week we will be recording and uploading our own version of “Why Did I Get Married?” to my YouTube channel. I will also post the video here on the blog.

Now this is where you come in!

When I was single I had so many questions about marriage, especially when we started dating.  I was curious as to what to expect and how I should prepare for it.

Ron has volunteered to help me answer your most curious dating and marriage questions.  Plus, this is a great opportunity to get the male perspective ladies!

Ask us anything….

  • How did he know that I was the one?
  • What are Christian men looking for in a Christian woman?
  • What lessons did we learn in wedding planning?
  • How did we maintain our purity until marriage?

Leave your questions down below in the comment field…don’t be shy. 😉 But in case you are shy, email your questions to my new email address… loveandgracemedia@gmail.com or at gospelnewmedia@gmail.com

I love you all so much and I am so thankful that this blog has created beautiful friendships in my life.  Your names and your stories are continuously in my thoughts and prayers.

Your sister in Christ,
Candra (Brightwell) Evans

  1. How did he know that I was the one?
    What are Christian men looking for in a Christian woman?
    *Was there a time when you just weren’t sure? There was no resounding “yes” or resounding “no” as to whether he/she was the one? How did you proceed?

  2. Hi Candra! Hope all is well 🙂 I have a tricky question for you 🙂 Do you think online dating is morally or biblically wrong, or is it cheating God?

    I’ve read that marriage is more about commitment and less about compatibility, as there’s never been a less compatible match between the perfect Groom (Christ) and the sinful (Church) bride. I’ve been wondering about this because every week for the last 4 weeks, a friend suggested that I try an online Christian site but not sure if that goes against God’s plan, which of course I have no way of figuring out. My cousin (a reverend) met her husband through an online dating site and they are a beautiful model of an authentic Christian marriage (with the highs and lows), so it just makes me wonder. Thank you for you and what you do! 🙂

    1. Hello Yasmine! Thank you for the question… it’s an excellent one! I have written a post about my experience with online dating and eHarmony more specifically. In my opinion, participating in online dating is not biblically wrong. When studying various marriages in scripture, we find that each couple had their own unique love story. The bottom line is that it is God that must take the lead in every aspect of our lives, including finding a mate. For anyone that is interested in online dating, my advice is to approach the process as you would approach any offline opportunity to meet new people. For example, don’t jump into anything too fast just because the computer says you are a perfect match. I wouldn’t recommend approaching online dating as the only way to find your mate. It may or may not happen that way. It didn’t happen that way for me. I joined an online dating site to network and meet new people. Although I walked away from the process with only friendships, they have been some of the best friendships I have ever had.

      We can’t make an online dating service our god and our final answer as to who we should marry. And you certainly do not have to try an online site if you know that God isn’t leading you that way. God is in control and we must yield to His will before our own.

      I will definitely add this question to my list for our next video! We’ve recorded our first already but I am still doing some editing. 🙂

      God bless!

  3. This is excellent! It’s hard to find decent blogs to share your comments with – I like getting something back in return for taking the time to post a comment so I’m glad you shared these links!
