I'm Engaged!

Life moves along faster than it seems possible. A mere five years ago I graduated high school and went to Thailand as a student missionary. For the past five months I've been romantically involved with my childhood friend, Kelley. Well, I completely fell for her charms. She has a great capacity to love both God and me and those around us, and she enjoys the same things I do: namely, reading and writing! She completes me in every way; she is my Angel. Last Sunday I went down to Waterford and purchased an engagment ring, on Monday I asked her father's permission, and on Wednesday I proposed on our very first time out alone.

This is a big step and I'm privilidged and overjoyed to take it. I've always desired to find my other half... my better half... and now I will have her.

The Lord said is "not good for man to be alone." So I'm taking His advice! Also, as I've told my fiance, "He that finds a wife finds a good thing, and obtains favor from the Lord" -Proverbs 18:22 ....So I have a hidden agenda: I want God to favor me!
Now my endeavors will be shared as will my memories, my life. With her support I will continue writing. And with her inspiration my imagination will expand.

I am just in awe at how the Lord works. And I am so thankful for the wonderful man that He has seen fit to bless me with. God is good, and He is ever faithful.

Congrats to the both of you!
I know first hand how God can bless a marriage of those who love and serve him and I know that the both of you fit that description.
Continue to trust and love Him and you will have a full and joyful life.

WELCOME TO THE WRITING SITE OF SCOTT APPLETON

"Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones." -Proverbs 16:24

In a world where morality is forsaken and Christ neglected, wholesome books are uncommon. The themes of my writing are love, self-sacrifice, and honor.

I see my generation turning from God to the gods of this world. I see homes torn apart in the pursuit of pleasure and self-gratification. Children are murdered by the millions every year . . . without ever seeing the world outside their mothers' wombs. Through fiction I strive to encourage those who are willing, to stand against these things and be heroes and heroines; chivalrous, gentle, full of righteous indignation, and the fear and love of their Creator.
