It's Just Coffee
Boundless blogger Adam Holz knew there was something special about his wife, Jennifer, from the moment they met. Jennifer didn't feel the same about Adam, but she agreed to go to coffee with him--as a friend. After four "friend dates" (and a nagging feeling that this guy deserved a chance), Adam and Jennifer went on their first real date. Eight years and three kids later, they join us to tell their story of getting married at 34 and finding joy in the process of discovering what they call their "kindred spirit."
The Bachelor Pastor, Part 1
As senior pastor of a large church in northwest Indiana, Steve DeWitt is no stranger to marriage. He's preached on marriage, written on marriage, and married countless couples in his church and beyond. But his own marriage didn't come until two months ago, at the age of 44. The week before he got married, Steve preached a sermon titled "The Bachelor Pastor" in which he shared his thoughts on years of singleness and what he'd learned. One of the first things I ask him is why it took him 44 years to find a wife. Listen in for his answer. (Part 1 of 2)
