Spence and I are marriage mentors for our church's Preparing for Marriage course. I so wish we had this when we got married, it is the coolest program, I think. Basically, if you want to be married by a Summit pastor, you have to be a part of this. It includes a weekend of seminars, a mentor couple who has been married for at least 5 years, and a set of afternoon class seminars. Spence and I have had one flop of a couple (never even met them, so I don't count it as a fail). But our second couple was a complete success! We got our couple because Spence teaches a portion of the weekend and he mentioned while teaching in January that we needed a couple. Robbie approached Spence afterwards and Spence came home excited to introduce me to them the following weekend. I, on the other hand, was a bit nervous because this wasn't a thought out matching. We didn't know anything about these people. What if they had serious problems? What if they were socially awkward? What if we didn't mesh? All these thoughts were laid to rest after our first dinner together. I ADORE Lauren and Robbie! They were wonderful! We had Sunday dinners with them for about 6 months. Spencer performed their wedding July 16. It was such a blessing to get to know them. We are heartbroken that they will be moving to Philadelphia so that Robbie can go to med school. We hope that one day they will move back and we can live life some more together.
