Today, I'm continuing my Ambassadors for Marriage series with another fantastic guest post (you can read the first guest post in this series here). I found Leah's blog when I first started blogging, months ago, and I admire very much her honest, faith-driven, and inspiring way of writing about her marriage and her little family. She's a loyal reader of Something Ivory, too, and I'm thrilled she's here today to share her story! I think you'll enjoy it very much.
Describe how you met your husband and how you felt as you got to know him.The first time I ever met Landon was when we were both 17 and my dad was interviewing to be the pastor at the church Landon's family attended. Both our families were at a small dinner party to get to know people from the church, and he obviously didn't want to be there. :) I remember seeing this hoodie-wearing boy slumped against the wall, and not really noticing him beyond that. Fast forward a year or so, and you would find two young teens in youth group together flirting, writing notes to each other, and hanging out a lot. I realized as I got to know Landon more, that I was becoming more drawn to him, and every time I saw him I would get butterflies in my stomach.
When did you know he was the one you wanted to marry?
What has been the most rewarding part of your marriage so far?
What have you learned about your husband that you didn't know before you got married?
Has anything about marriage surprised you?
How would you describe "the ideal wife," the one you strive always to become?
How do you face challenges in marriage? What are your strategies for overcoming the inevitable hard moments or hard days?
Have you started any family traditions as a couple?
Thank you so much, Leah, for sharing your heart with us today!
