Back in 2015, I spent a summer in Jacksonville, FL with a Navigator summer training program where I met Joy and Luke. Joy and I quickly bonded as we spent many hours at the Starbucks on the UNF campus studying God's Word.
Joy and Luke's story is one of my favorites! You see, this was not Joy and Luke's first time in Jacksonville. They had both gone to this summer training program back in 2013 where they became close friends. At the end of the second summer, Luke decided to ask Joy to date him. To everyone's surprise, she said, "not yet". I admire Luke's patient and Godly pursuit of Joy over the years of their friendship, dating relationship, and now marriage. As I'm sure you guessed how the story goes, they began dating, got engaged, and said "I do"! Congratulations, Joy and Luke!
