‘He who finds a good wife finds a good thing ...’

Dr. David L. Chancey's picture

Wedding bells are ringing. I’ve had the privilege of officiating two weddings in recent weeks and attending a third. We have a wedding on the horizon in our family. My son got engaged in February to a beautiful young lady that he met at Georgia College and State University. They are set to be married in September.

My wife and I just celebrated our 32nd anniversary. I will never forget the moment I met Amy. We were both very involved in Baptist Student Union, now known as BCM (Baptist Collegiate Ministry) at our respective colleges. She was in Atlanta, and I was in Statesboro. Read More»
