As a teenage girl, I prayed to marry a preacher. I knew no one who was desiring to be a preacher but each night I knelt by my bed and prayed, "Lord, if I am capable of being a preacher's wife I would like to marry a preacher. If not, just let me marry a Christian." God answered that prayer for me. Our local preacher, Jerry Humphries, preached in two gospel meetings that summer and invited a young man from Alabama Christian College (now Faulkner University) to preach in his absence. He brought his girlfriend with him so that took him out of the running. But when I learned they were coming back in a week or so, I asked if they didn't have some fine young man they could bring down and let me meet. The girl thought for a minute, snapped her fingers and said, "Old Doug." Old Doug and I have been married 54 years and have two children and two grandchildren. All our children are faithful members of the church. God is so good. I love Him so.
