COUPLE NUMBER ONE: THE BEGINNING.

They've been married for a long time now and have seven kids. This is how it started.


They were in a Young Adult ward at a midweek activity . It was the first time they had met. When it was time to go home she said to him, "Do you need a ride home?"

"I'd love a ride home," he said.

They chatted on the way. He thought she was cute. She must have liked him too because when she dropped him off at his apartment and he asked her for a date she accepted.

He watched her as she drove off and then started the long walk back to the church because he hadn't really needed a ride home at all. His car was the only one left in the parking lot when he got there.

PS This is NOT our story. I'll post it someday.

This is NOT the story of Phil and me. It's the "beginning" of a couple in our (church) ward.
