'God brought Claire in my life and I wasn’t really expecting it, but he brought her along right when I needed her.
'Ever since then, I just knew that she was the one. Claire has a lot of good qualities and I can sit here and tell you all of them, but there are so many good things that Is see in her. I’m so blessed to have her in my life.'
Claire added saying,
'Justin and I’s families have known each other for over 20 years so before he or I were even born, and then we got connected last year.
'I’m really looking forward to the memories to come spent with him. I’m excited to see what the Lord holds for us in the near future.'
