Publisher Comments:

Caitlin O'Conner, now 21 and in her senior year of college, accepts Josh Miller's proposal for marriage. But Caitlin soon discovers there's a lot more to getting married than justsaying "I do." Between her mother and mother-in-law to be (who don't seem to agree on anything) and Caitlin's old buddies (who still have problems of their own because of wrongchoices), Caitlin's life never seems to run smoothly. But Caitlin, as determined as ever to do things God's way, always manages to find the high ground...eventually. As a result, the journey to herwedding is full of twists and turns where God touches many lives, including Caitlin's. Most of all, Caitlin and Josh realize that a wedding only lasts one day, but a marriage is for alifetime.

Saturday, October 22

My life changed today. It's as if I got up this morning as one person and will go to bed as someone else. Okay, maybe it's not THATdrastic. But I'm so excited I'm not sure I'll ever go to sleep tonight. Josh Miller asked me to marry him!

First she "kissed datinggoodbye." Now, several years later, Caitlin O'Conner is getting married-to the guy she's loved all along, Josh Miller! It's her senior year of college, and she has sevenmonths to plan her wedding...but according to Josh's mom, that's not enough time.

Meanwhile, Caitlin's roommate, Liz, has ditched her to move in with a boyfriend. Her newroommate and old friend, Jenny, is toying with anorexia again, and just when Caitlin needs her most, Beanie heads off to a New York City design school. On top of all this, an issue from Josh'spast rocks Caitlin's emotions. Can she handle it all?

True to form, Caitlin is more concerned with following God than having the perfect wedding. But it "is" her big day. CanCaitlin have a lovely ceremony without spending a small fortune? Will she remember it's the marriage-and not the wedding-that lasts forever?

Story Behind theBook

"My teenage years remain vivid in my mind. It was a turbulent time full of sharp contrasts- love and hate, pain and pleasure, trust and doubt. Then, just as I reachedmy peak of questioning, rebelling, and seeking, I found God. And I found Him in a really big way! My life turned completely around and has, thankfully, never turned back. Hopefully this story will touch and changehearts-speaking to teen girls right where they live, reminding readers that God is alive and well and ready to be intimately involved in their lives right now! Caitlin provides a very positive role model forgirls. And her wedding is a great way to teach them about the things that really matter in life-their relationship with God and their willingness to be used byHim."
