:) I've been meaning to write this since forever ago but between traveling, the holidays, ministry and my little 9 month old, I'm swamped!Thanks for your patience as I am tryin' to blog as much as I can!
We try to connect almost every day by either talking on the phone or video chatting.I’ve never been a huge phone person, so I wasn’t too excited about that aspect of the relationship.I believe it is very important for couples to grow in their faith together, and it can be hard to do that in a long distance relationship, because we cannot go to church together.Can you point me to some resources for long distance relationships?One year ago, on Easter, I went to the home of a couple from my church for a potluck dinner. Pretty soon, he told me he wanted to come visit me during the summer.
I ended up sitting next to a guy named Andrew, who was in town visiting a friend who attended my church. Yes, this great guy I’d met and connected with and loved getting to know, was Canadian. Last July, we became “official” (on Facebook and everything), and we have spent the past eight and a half months dating long-distance.Communication is first and foremost, and technology has aided in maintaining connectedness to those away from each other.SEE ALSO: He Said-She Said: Can Long-Distance Relationships Really Work?A couple's devotional, books, articles, websites, or tips would be much appreciated!HE SAID: Having been in an occupation where I have spent upwards of two hundred days a year away from my home, I have had to learn, maintain and incorporate strategies in order to grow a long-distance relationship and I applaud you for seeking new ways in your own.My first serious relationship turned into my first long-distance relationship. But even though long-distance relationships have a reputation for not working, they can work if you know how to navigate it.
