Transformed Relationship

e met in 2016. We dated.

WWe got engaged and

married in 2018.

But a love story is never

that simple.

In 2014 my (Michelle’s) first

marriage ended. A few

years before that, Paul’s first

marriage had ended. We’d

each had time on our own to

heal from those hurts, but still

had our hang-ups in our new

relationship. In a year and a

half of dating we broke up a

few times.

But we decided we wanted our relationship to work so we chose to seek

guidance and counselling together. We learned about keeping stakes in

the ground and the need to be willing to lift them to be able to make our

relationship a “we, not me” situation. We had a combined year of preand

first year marital counselling. We did personality and compatibility

tests to learn more about ourselves, each other, and us together. We

read books. We had wise, Godly people speak into our lives and our

relationship. Years of hurt from the past don’t just dissipate when you

date a new person. We learned that. But more importantly we learned

that God is good. All the time!

God took each of us in our broken states and made us whole, then He

brought us together and showed us His love in our love story. We know

by what we experienced that our relationship would not be thriving

today if it wasn’t for Him.

We’ve joined the marriage ministry at FAC and through that we

ourselves are continuously being ministered to. We’re passionate about

seeing others’ relationships not just survive, but thrive – because we can

testify that in all things, God is bigger, He is stronger, and He is able to

transform your relationship just like He did ours.
