We are PRAISING THE LORD for the engagement of Carson, to his beautiful girlfriend (now fiancé) Carolina Bowers! Our hearts are filled with joy at the awesomeness of God in writing their love story + bringing their lives together.
We are also just as excited as can be to be gaining another daughter/sister. =)

Yesterday evening, while out in the woods, on the 6 month anniversary of their relationship, Carson asked Carolina to marry him.  And…she said YES!!

The lovely ring!
“The Lord hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad.”
Psalm 126:3

  3. So excited for this joyous news.
    If you are able, can you do a separate blog post on your family's views and any guidelines you have for dating/courtship? Does your family do chaperoned/group dates?

    1. We probably won't be doing a post on that, but thanks for asking! First of all, because each person has different convictions/standards, and secondly because it isn't our place to tell other people how to do their relationships. The main point is for each couple to have their own personal commitment to purity + godliness, and also to seek counsel + accountability in their relationships.

  4. I am so thrilled to hear the news! How does your family do courtship? Because in every family, it is going to be different. Is there an age or way you (your family) go about it?
    Once again, congrats to Carson and Carolina!!!!! Can't wait to hear their unique story because everyone is different and beautiful. His blessings be with you all!

    1. No age minimum or max for when each person enters a relationship—just whenever the timing is right for each one! It is different for everyone. =)

  5. Congrats to Carson and Carolina! I am so glad to hear the news and glad to hear you are all getting a great sister or daughter; a new member to the Bontrager clan, huh? How are the kids taking the news? Love to hear from all them!
    I am too asking about your Bontrager family guidelines of courting. Because every family does things differently.
    Once again, congrats and have a blessed day! -Paige

    1. The kids/rest of the family…are all thrilled to pieces! We all simply adore Carolina + are so thrilled to have her as another sister! Our household has been wild with delight the past 24hrs!
      See our answer comment above for how we do relationships. =)

  6. Congratulations to Carson and Carolina! This is so exciting! I recognize Carolina from an interview she and her sister did in the KBR magazine quite a while back… how cool! 🙂

  7. Congratulations to Carson and Carolina!!! May God guide your steps and richly bless you as you start this new chapter of your life *together,* seeking to live for His glory!!

  8. Tell Carson I am happy for him and Carolina. I have enjoyed talking with him in past visits. Now you family has really grown for am I correct that is a big family also?

  9. Oh, this news is SO joyous!! We are so thrilled to have Carson as a part of the Bowers clan as well! I love him already and can't wait to hug all of you very soon. Love, Aunt Pandy

  10. What a blessing to see such a wonderful couple do it God's way!! Will there be a post of how it all happened/ their love story soon?? Would love to hear it if y'all did! 🙂 Keep serving the Lord! 1Chronicles 16:11

Get real, Yes, it was my option to read, but I genuinely thought youd have some thing intriguing to say. All I hear is typically a couple of whining about something which you could fix when you werent too busy searching for attention. 491126
