We wish this wasn't our story.

We wish that our story was of a perfect marriage, one with no issues or problems. Instead, our story is about a marriage that went through a lot of turbulence and hurt. However, this is also a story of redemption and forgiveness, of God restoring what could have been the worst of situations and turning it into something beautiful.

For those of you who don't know us, we're Hugh and Jill Freeze. We overcame some major adversity within our marriage, but a few years later our relationship is better than it’s ever been. It's how we got to this point that's worth reading, and it's a story that only God can write.

The Bible is full of stories of people who have really messed up, from David to Peter to Paul. Each of them used their past to try and turn their lives around and become closer to God. They are all great stories to read, it's just that we never thought our story would be like theirs.

But if we've learned anything over the last two years, it's that love is stronger than resentment, and forgiveness is stronger than sin.
