This friend had not thought about giving dating advice to his daughter until it was almost too late.
Had I continued believing that “broken” was all that God had for me, I never would have found a truly good man. I was at a dinner with my group of friends, laughing and celebrating, when I discovered that my boyfriend had just slept with one of my close friends the previous night. Later on, I met someone who claimed to love me enough to marry me.
She received her degree in Journalism and is a writer for the faith-based lifestyle blog, Sparrows and Lily.
She loves Jesus, event planning, baking and binge-watching Netflix with her husband. Kirk Cameron’s The Courage is your digital destination for inspiring, encouraging, fun, and challenging content in the areas of faith, family, and culture.
He was one of the good ones – the kind of man who gives you a glimpse into God’s love and kindness. I looked in the mirror and saw damaged goods by every definition of the word.
But he still pursued me relentlessly – because he was one of the good ones. He wrote me a letter early on that said, “Lindsey, whatever you want to know, I will tell you. I want you to be able to know everything that you want about my life because I care about you.” I wasn’t used to honest. He took notes and remembered the things in my life that I considered important.
