If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

12. What was it like when you first met your in-laws-to-be?
I met them before my hubby and I started dating.  My husband was the choir director at church when I joined the choir and both of his parents were in the choir.  It was probably a year or more before we started dating.  I think when he asked me out the first time, his mom was almost as excited as I was.  lol  I have the most wonderful in-laws in the world.  So sorry for the rest of you.  hahaha
