Of course, Pastor Kip wasn’t the only one who made such an impact. His wife, Cheryl, played a very important role as well. Outside of my own family, these two were the first example I witnessed of how a Godly marriage should be. Mrs Cheryl was my role model. In the time she had with the girls of the youth group, she took us under her wing and showed us what it meant to be a proverbs 31 woman. She showed us through her own devotion to her husband, and to the Lord. I’ll never forget one purity weekend when we made a complete notebook of our wedding day wishes. We wrote out specific requirements our future husbands should meet. A few on my list were “tall”, “strong”, “In love with God”, “No matter how bad his voice, he must sing to me.” Ironically, the first time Josh sang to me was the moment I fell in love.
