She picked up the pieces once again and jumped back into the dating game, but this time, she was determined to do it God’s way.She met plenty of guys but none of them seemed to work out except for one – the one Audrey calls “Ishmael.” “Everything seemed to be just right except for the gnawing thought in my brain that this wasn't the fit God had in mind,” she explains. “I had given up on ‘illegal sex’ 'cause that had brought me nothing but grief.
I had to actually know that I was supposed to be married.” Meanwhile, a tall, handsome man in Audrey’s church named Fred Foster had been watching her from a distance the whole time.She recalls, “Before you knew it, I had slept with one too many guys, and I was now the girl on campus with a ‘reputation’ -- the girl who slept around and who no one respected.” How could it have happened?She was raised in church – the daughter of deacons.[Genesis , NIV] “I read Genesis with new eyes, and the Holy Spirit enlightened a scripture I had read and heard a thousand times,” she says.In January of 2004, Audrey took her “rhema word” and began praying for a husband.It may even seem like all your friends are reaching those desired milestones: getting married, having children, starting their families.
