A LONG Love story is one of my favorites of all time. It's based on a real couple and their strong desire and commitment to equipped others with the necessary tools for a Godly and healthy marriage. It was a pleasure to plan an imitate 30th Wedding Anniversary (7/27/2015) brunch for my mentors Anthony and Katrina Long. Today they are celebrating 33 years of marriage. Through their marriage, they have taught other couples to persevere through the marriage journey by teaching them to love, respect, honor and cherish their helpmates.
My husband and I have been under the mentorship of the Longs for over 14 years and we can definitely testify that God sent us the perfect mentors. Since we have been married, every other Tuesday we attend a couples bible study hosted by the Longs. During this class we read our weekly lesson and then have a transparent group discussion. Let me tell you, we have great topics, including effective communication, getting off the "crazy cycle", being selfless and not selfish, and most importantly being accountable to God and our spouses. We have learned so much from their commitment to God and each other. They are helping grow marriages and we can't thank them enough.
We salute the Longs and all they do. Wishing them a wonderful 33rd Wedding Anniversary. Cheers to many more!!!
