NEW! CHANGE BACKGROUND
A Big Change Is Coming . . .
by Rachel Whitaker, Associate Editor


I have some big news that I've been waiting to share with you. Now that some of the details are finalized, it seemed like a good time to spill the beans.

Here's the news: I'm getting married! That's a big deal all by itself. But there's more: I'll also be moving back to my home state of Michigan, which means I'll be leaving my job at Guide around the end of July. I'll definitely be sad to leave, since I really enjoy putting together great stories and Web content for you guys. Believe it or not, I've worked for Guide for 10 years—in other words, since some of you were babies!

You'll still see me in the magazine through at least the end of the year, since we work on each issue months ahead of time. But before long you'll meet a new assistant editor named Laura Samano. In fact, I just met her yesterday, and she's excited about being part of Guide's ministry.

I thought you might like to see a picture of my special guy, whose name is Greg Cabose. One of the best things about our relationship is that we always pray together. He started that with the very first time we talked on the phone! I can definitely tell you that praying, reading the Bible or Christian books, and worshipping with the person you are dating is awesome! That's why you should date someone who shares your spiritual beliefs as closely as possible. If God is important to you (and I hope He is), you want to be able to share that important part of your life with the person you date. Besides that, the Bible says that love comes from God (1 John 4:7), so if you really want to have "true love," you both need to be connected to God!

I know from personal experience that finding a person who shares your commitment to God can be difficult, especially if you're in public school or attend a small church where you don't know many Seventh-day Adventists your age.  But don't compromise on that, even if you have to wait a long time to find the right person, like I did.

I could share a lot more dating advice from my many years of dating experience (OK, so most of those years actually involved NOT dating), but I'll move on to the romantic details, for those of you who like that sort of thing. Since I didn't want to wear an engagement ring, for my engagement gift Greg created this little wooden box, which he filled with love notes and a book of poems about marriage. Isn't that sweet?

I think it's great that you're getting married. We'll miss you but you've been here a while. Sometimes, things don't last forever. I'm sure everyone is happy for you. Congrats and God bless your marriage.
