Today, we're bringing you two Miracle Monday testimonies that respond to this month's question, "How did God direct you to your spouse?"
From Sister Stefanie Arcuri
Dan and I met for the first time at GMBA Camp in 2005. I was 16, and he was 19. We long-distance dated between Pittsburgh and Phoenix, but it didn't work out for us that time.
We kept in touch over the years and reconnected at another GMBA Camp in 2013. At that camp, we decided to start reading a chapter a day of The Book of Mormon and then discuss what we read. Not only did that force us to talk on the phone every day, but it also brought us closer to God together.
After a few months of talking as friends, we decided to give dating another try. Unfortunately, the spark just wasn't there for us that time either!
I began to pray that God would make things work out for us because Dan and I both knew we loved each other. I prayed this prayer every day for a year — without anyone knowing — and had the chance to go to Arizona to visit Dan in January 2015.
Thankfully, God heard my prayers, and ever since then, we knew that He had a plan for us to be together.
