From The Bride:
After being critically injured in Iraq, he was forced to delay finishing college for awhile and as a result our paths crossed at our fraternity/sorority mixer but it would take another 7 years before the first date to finally happen. I had put off dating for nearly a year when Elijah asked me out. I was hurt, broken, insecure but desperately pursuing my place in Christ’s love. I knew after our first date that Elijah was the man God had been preparing me for.
