Pure Love: Stories of Waiting, Blessings, and Celebrations
Waiting for the right person to come into your life can be tough. It can sometimes feel like an eternity before you find that special someone. But let me tell you, it’s worth the wait. Trust me, I know from experience.
I remember when I had my first boyfriend. It was a big deal at the time, but looking back, I realize just how blessed I was. He was truly worth waiting for.
Every girl dreams of having her own fairy tale ending. We all want a love story that fills our hearts with joy. And let me tell you, when you wait for the right person, that’s exactly what you get.
Now, I have to admit, it wasn’t always easy. There were times when I felt miserable and lonely, especially when it came to the idea of staying pure. But somehow, through it all, God continued to use me to teach other girls about the importance of purity.
Stories like mine are constantly floating around, giving hope to those whose hearts are broken and in need of healing. And even through the pain and heartache, I can still see the blessings that have come from making that commitment to purity.
The Characteristics of a Future Wife
When I was waiting for my future husband, I decided to make a list of qualities that I thought he would want in a wife. I titled it “The Characteristics for the Woman Who’s Going to Marry My Husband.”
I wanted to be the best version of myself for him, and that meant growing and evolving as a person. So I worked on becoming the kind of woman who would make a great partner.
Celebration Stories: Proof that Purity is Possible
Along my journey, I met many incredible women who were also walking the path of purity. Together, we formed a sisterhood, laughing and supporting each other every step of the way.
In a particularly memorable moment, each of these women handed me a price tag with their name on it. In return, I gave them a pearl to symbolize their commitment to purity. It was a powerful and symbolic gesture, and it brought us even closer together.
We call these stories “celebration stories,” because they are worth celebrating. They prove that purity is not only possible but also incredibly rewarding. And let me tell you, there are over 250,000 lives that can attest to the power of these stories.
That’s why “The Bride Wore White” is still a bestseller. It contains dozens of these amazing celebration stories that inspire and encourage others to wait for the right person.
Your story could be next. You have the power to make a choice that will impact your life in ways you can’t even imagine. So, embrace your journey, cherish your purity, and know that a beautiful love story is waiting for you on the other side.
