How We Met: John and I met at church and I can not say it was love at first sight. To be honest, he totally weirded me out! I had never actually met him and all of the sudden he knew my name and would ALWAYS say “Hi Whitney” every time I passed him. I was on youth staff at our church on Wednesday nights, and little did I know he was leading worship for youth group on Sunday mornings! It came time for summer camp and we were short on male staff so he agreed to come to Hume Lake with us. After the 6 hour bus ride up I totally had a crush on him. Apparently junior high girls really pick up on that stuff and found out the crush was reciprocal, so they decided to take matters into their own hands. In agreement to get them off our backs, John pretended to fake propose to me with an apple-O gummy they found. When we got home we decided maybe those junior highers were actually onto something. I left for a couple months on mission trips, and we decided to start dating when I got home. How HeAsked: Fast forward to the next summer… It was time for summer camp again and this time John had something much bigger than an apple-O planned! Watch our video the awesome staff at Hume made us and see the most memorable summer ever!
PS maybe we should start listening to 12 years old girls more often!
