Why I blog

I met the Love of my life when I was fifteen, and right from the beginning we faced some mountainous challenges. With an eight-year age difference, we learned the value of patience and wisdom, and above all, the importance of laying our lives down at Jesus’ feet. Four years later, Zachary and I are openly dating and building our relationship on the foundation of Christ. We’ve learned to surrender our own plans and wait on God’s perfect timing, letting the Future come one day at a time.

As life unfolds, I’m seeking God’s purpose for me and learning to use the gifts He’s given. I am writing to you through this blog to relay my story and the valuable lessons I’ve learned– and am continuing to learn– and hope that God will use my life and my words to minister to other young women. I hope to share and be a source of encouragement to you as I live life seeking Jesus and preparing to be a wife and mother in the Future.

I started my blog in September 2015 when I noticed an abundance of blogs, books, and resources for cultivating Godly marriages… but a huge deficiency in any Christian material or support for young women in committed relationships– before marriage! So I was inspired to start Project Patience. While this site started out being dedicated to young women who are building relationships with the intention of marriage, I felt God leading me to branch out and write for single women also, who are building their relationships with God.

Basically, this blog is for those of us who are waiting, whether single, dating, or engaged, and focuses on cultivating intimacy with Jesus as we let Him work on and fill our lives day after day.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart– each one of you who takes the time to read, comment, & share. I love communicating with you and giving you a place to voice your own thoughts and experiences. We are on this earth to build one another up, in Jesus’ precious name.

  1. A wonderful reason to be blogging. When I was dating before marriage, I really had no clue how to do that right. Looking back, I made a lot of mistakes. But in the case of my marriage, God has blessed us. We’ve learned a lot together. I love it when God places an idea in a person’s heart that meets a real need. Go girl!

  2. Hi Hannah, I happened onto your blog through Pinterest. You posted a couple of my pins about international students onto your Blogging board, and I’m burdened about the fact that those posts receive so little interest. So when they do get pinned, I sometimes “follow the trail” to see who cares, and that led me here, reading about why you blog. I’m certainly not in your target audience. I’m almost 70 years old; my husband and I have been happily married for 44 years. My purpose is twofold: 1) Thank you for pinning my pins about international students. 2) I want to encourage you to keep blogging and, more importantly, keep following Christ in your personal life and in your relationships. I’ll pray for you today. Thank you for a lovely blog!
