Puritan Board Junior
So I've met a young man and we're headed towards courtship but in order for that to happen, my father told me to write down what I want his involvement in this process to be like, otherwise dad won't do it and I'd like suggestions from y'all. It would be appreciated especially as I set criteria for myself - I don't want to miss something vital. (and remember I'm very open to suggestions since I've never done this before.)
Spiritual protector for the both of us.
Screener. Is he physically fit? Doctrinally sound? Vocationally sound? Financially stable? Prepared academically for a possible life in the mission field? Will this man be able to nurture our kids (your grandkids) and raise them in the way they should go? I also want family worship to be a priority because that makes a family close and it is his calling as a father (his mandate) to be a spiritual leader in his household. Would this man lay down his life for his family like I know you would?
FOR ME: Physically fit? Doctrinally sound and desiring to raise Godly children? Fit to keep a household? Willing to submit to my husband's authority while also being supportive, encouraging, and loving?
