The way they were: Larissa and Ian met in college in 2005 and 10 months later already had plans to get engaged. But their plans came to an abrupt halt when Ian suffered a debilitating brain injury
Shattered: Ian was left unable to communicate and it became doubtful that his and Larissa's dreams would ever come true
Hopeful: Larissa moved into Ian's family's home to help take care of him and waited for him to improve. If he could communicate, she said, then they could make a marriage work
True love: 'I still don't think that Ian would have ever left me if the role had been reversed. And walking away from my best friend was never truly an option,' says Larissa
'And even though we chose marriage, we chose it sadly': Larissa and Ian live in western Pennsylvania. Larissa looks to God for inspiration as she continue to struggle with the loss of the man she once knew
Bittersweet: 'We've watched all of our friends get married and have health. I've watched as my girlfriends and sisters found husbands who could dance with them at their weddings and drive them to church on Sunday morning,' says Larissa
Dedicated: Larissa spends her days working in marketing at a western Pennsylvania bank to help support Ian, who is unable to work.
Faithful: 'This church, and this marriage, are hemmed in by Jesus and eagerly long for heaven. He is their author and sustainer,' says Larissa
'But in light of all the practicals, and emotionals,' says Larissa, 'it was so very simple: we love each other. And we love God. And we believe He is a sovereign and loving God who rules all things.'
Contentment through suffering: 'I didn't know contentment in my prosperity,' writes Larissa. She says the trials and tribulations she suffered with Ian have strengthened her faith and spirit.
