They began dating in November of 2007 after John-Michael heard a whisper from God telling him to talk to Danielle. The next seven years would be filled with good times, laughter and fun, but they also had their fair share of loss, hurt and God’s patient reminders. Throughout most of this time, John-Michael and Danielle had a long distance relationship because he still had three years of college left. Both of them had different ideas of what was going to happen with their live. Danielle was ready to get married and knew John-Michael was the one for her. John-Michael knew she was the one for him, but was in no rush to get married. This became a triangle of tears. As they surrendered their plans, trying not to pick them back up again, they watched God begin to refine them. When both of them finally gave everything to God, there was more peace.
Danielle felt God tell her to set up a dinner date and afterwards show John-Michael a large heart shape of post-it notes she put on the wall, each post-it-note written with a reason why she loved him! His reaction caused him to giggle because John-Michael had just had a discussion with God asking Him to truly show him again that Danielle was the one for him. Little did Danielle know that God used her obedience to literally write on the wall a confirmation for John-Michael. He wanted to make 100% sure that he was in the will of God. Right there, John-Michael bent down on one knee and asked Danielle to marry him.
Their love story is a story that reveals the honesty of their hearts. Their relationship has grown deep over the past seven years and they know they will continue to have wonderful moments together until they meet their Lord, the Cornerstone of their relationship. “The amazing part is our story is way better than any fairy tale that you will ever hear.”
They were married in December, 2014
