Caitlin O&rsquo;Conner, now 21 and in her senior year of college, accepts Josh Miller&rsquo;s proposal for marriage. But Caitlin soon discovers there&rsquo;s a lot more to getting married than just saying &#8220;I do.&#8221; Between her mother and mother-in-law to be (who don&rsquo;t seem to agree on anything) and Caitlin&rsquo;s old buddies (who still have problems of their own because of wrong choices), Caitlin&rsquo;s life never seems to run smoothly. But Caitlin, as determined as ever to do things God&rsquo;s way, always manages to find the high ground...eventually. As a result, the journey to her wedding is full of twists and turns where God touches many lives, including Caitlin&rsquo;s. Most of all, Caitlin and Josh realize that a wedding only lasts one day, but a marriage is for a lifetime.<br><br>Saturday, October 22 <br><br>My life changed today. It&rsquo;s as if I got up this morning as one person and will go to bed as someone else. Okay, maybe it&rsquo;s not THAT drastic.

Her newroommate and old friend, Jenny, is toying with anorexia again, and just when Caitlin needs her most, Beanie heads off to a New York City design school. On top of all this, <b> </b>an issue from Josh&rsquo;s past rocks Caitlin&rsquo;s emotions. Can she handle it all? <br><br>True to form, Caitlin is more concerned with following God than having the perfect wedding. But it <i>is</i> her big day. Can Caitlin have a lovely ceremony without spending a small fortune?
