Tonight's new episode of Counting On is sure to be interesting!The Duggar siblings sit down with cinematographer and producer Scott Enlow, who has been working with the family since the early days of their reality TV show, to recap season two and chat about what it means to be part of the supersized Duggar clan.While I do believe the modern concept of recreational dating is dangerous, even foolish, I do not see a “one-size-fits-all” model in Scripture for the godly pursuit of marriage.Each family’s version of courtship and/or betrothal will look different – and it may even look different from child to child. Please feel free to copy and modify these questions for your own personal use in your family.And if you continue to pursue her with the wrong definition of love, know that I will fight for my daughter’s heart longer than you will, because I will not let you break it.
During our years speaking at various Christian conferences, my husband has received numerous requests from parents for his “famous” courtship questions.
The first prayers I said for her were uttered before I even met her. I could care less that you “like” being around her or that she causes fuzzy feelings inside of you that you label “love.” Love is not a feeling, sir.
It is an unending, unconditional commitment that often is accompanied by feelings... If you have that backward, we can stop talking right now until you go relearn that.
Patience is a virtue; there is no need to re-submit your comment.
That is, if you have the legitimate manners to ask me for permission to marry her. She was only weeks old in her mother’s womb when she melted my heart for the first time. You might say something more meaningful, like how you enjoy “great conversations” with her. It was my voice that calmed her down to a place of peace several times that she’s been terrified.
