Re: Someone like me
Well... I can't say I share all of those, but maybe enough of them that we'd have something in common. I'm also not sure if I qualify as a "young adult" anymore -- I'm only 25, but I've been married for three years and have two children. But, it wasn't that long ago that I was single and a college student.

My husband is the head of our household, with me as his helper as we see in the Bible. I believe the position of "helper" is not a derogatory one, but one of great value.
Our children will be homeschooled (my husband and I both were as well) and I'm actually preparing to start doing preschool with our oldest next month.
I don't see any Biblical problem with contraceptives in and of themselves. There are certain ones I have concerns about and would not use for those reasons, but I believe that if a husband and wife are open to God's leading with regard to their family and having children, contraceptives are not contrary to His will.
My husband and I chose to court rather than date -- and neither of us had ever courted or dated anyone else.
Family is a big deal to us. We live on one income so that I can take care of our children full-time, and we plan to homeschool because we believe it's the best option for our children and our family as a whole. We both knew before we got married that we were looking for someone who wanted this kind of lifestyle.
If there's any way I can help or encourage you, please feel free to let me know!
Give me one pure and holy passion
Give me one magnificent obsession
Give me one glorious ambition for my life:
To know and follow hard after You.
