If you’re a single gal, you may have a mental checklist for finding a godly husband. Maybe you wrote it in your teens, when you did a Bible study on dating and marriage at youth group. Maybe you’ve been on a lot of disappointing dates, and the “what I don’t want” list has been writing itself.
When my husband was trying to get me to go out with him on a date, he asked me, “What are you looking for in a guy?”
I wasn’t sure about him yet, so I answered playfully, “Tall, dark, and handsome.”
