Hi, I’m Christa! Born in Broken Bow, Nebraska, I grew up in a Godly home with the best of parents and a great brother. Since then I have lived in three Texas towns, attended Bible school in Canada, and gone on two missions trips to Mexico and Italy. I’ve enjoyed employment as a secretary, receptionist, and office manager. For years I’ve worked with kids in children’s ministry and Christian education. Right now I am the secretary at our church. However, my favorite “Job” is being a happy wife to Michael Madrid. He is truly my “dream come true” . . . and well worth the wait!
I made the choice as a teenager not to join the dating ranks, but to wait for the person God ordained to be my husband. Was the waiting easy? No! Were there moments of discouragement? Yes! Was I tempted to settle for second best? Yes! God, however, was faithful through it all the challenges. As I made Jesus my number one love above my desire for a husband, God graced me with promises. I chose to put my faith and trust in Him rather than working toward acquiring my husband on my own terms. The rewards of faith and patience proved true, and I am a happy testimony of God’s faithfulness!
If you’re a single women who desires a husband, I hope this blog inspires you to allow God to be your matchmaker. I pray it encourages you to put Jesus first before every other romantic desire as your confidence rests in God’s plan for your life. No greater romance exists apart from Him!
