Today is National Proposal Day!! I heard this on the Radio, yesterday, and the announcers proceeded to tell their proposal stories. I love to hear proposal stories!! I love to hear how love was expressed.
In the hopes that some of you might tell me your proposal stories—I will tell you mine.
I knew my husband, (then boyfriend), was getting serious about me and marriage, while I was on the fence. A friend suggested that we go to a Marriage Conference. The Conference had classes for those thinking of getting engaged, to help couples think through the decision. My husband and I were on staff with Campus Crusade for Christ, now known as Cru, and the Marriage Conference was run by Family Life Ministries, a Cru ministry.
We went to the Conference being held in Grand Rapids, at the Amway Plaza Hotel. It was a beautiful hotel, and we had some friends attending, that were engaged, so I stayed in a room with my friend, and my husband with her fiancé.
We went to our classes, and spent time discussing the content of the classes. I was still uncertain.
Then my husband, (then boyfriend), bent down on his knee, brought out a beautiful diamond ring, and said, “Katie, you are the love of my life, will you marry me?” I saw the love shining though his eyes, and I said, “Yes!” This proposal happened 32 years ago, this coming April. That is my proposal story, I would love to hear yours!!

Hope you are encouraged!!
