New Blog! “I’ll Find Him with You”

bride detail IFHWY

Since I can’t seem to get enough of writing these days, I’ve decided to start another blog!  In all seriousness, it’s one of my favorite subjects to talk about as it is something I have walked through and seen God’s faithfulness.

“I’ll Find Him with You” (www.illfindhim.com) is a site to help the single women trust God with her desire for a romantic relationship.  It’s so easy (as I well know!) to get caught up in the desire and forget about the One who loves the most.  No greater Matchmaker exists apart from God!  He knows our heart’s desires the best, and knows how to fully fulfill it’s dreams!

If you or anyone you know is in this position, take a look at http://www.illfindhim.com. Enjoy the encouragement, music, Scripture promises, and stories from my personal romance!

Enjoy!
