From as far back as I remember, I longed to be a wife.
Whenever my elementary school friends and I played house, I always had to be the mother.
There was just something about the love of a husband and wife that I so dearly wanted for myself.
The thing is, I think women intuitively desire marriage because from the beginning of time God said it was not good for man to be alone (see Genesis 2:18).
God gives his people desire to mirror him, to display his glory to the world.
In marriage, women hold a unique role in mirroring something much larger than themselves.
In preparing for my own marriage, I’ve come to realize that this something larger is the gospel.

I was so excited for this post. To give you an idea, I want you to picture those little butter mints that come wrapped in a shiny white packaging. You know, the kind that melt in your mouth? I love those things. As a kid, I would jump up and down and all around if they had a glitch and gave me TWO for one in the package.
I’m that excited, times 150.
I’m that excited, that when I sat down to write the blog I accidentally wrote over 3,000 words. AKA over 4 times what I was supposed to.
