The Vow by Kim and Krickitt Carpenter with Dana Wilkerson

“Lifthe vowe as Kim and Krickitt Carpenter knew it was shattered beyond recognition two months after their marriage when a devastating car wreck left Krickitt with a massive head injury and in a coma for weeks. When she finally awoke, she had no idea who Kim was. With no recollection of their relationship and while Krickitt experienced personality changes common to those who suffer head injuries, Kim realized the woman he had married essentially died in the accident. And yet, against all odds, Kim and Krickitt fell in love all over again. The Vow tells the true story of this journey, one of a commitment unbroken and a vow fulfilled.”

Such an inspiring and uplifting story. Their faith in the Lord and their love for each other is very admirable. Through all of the hardships that they faced, Krickitt not remembering and Kim loosing his wife the way he knew her, Kim never stopped loving or being there for Krickitt. I really admired Kim’s faith in believing that God would bring his wife back to him and Krickitt’s for putting all of her trust in God and never doubting it. It’s one thing in knowing that God will never leave you nor forsake you but a completely different thing in actually putting your complete trust in Him. I was very inspired by their love for one another. It helped me remember that God does care for each of us and has a plan for us, He never forgets us even when we think He has. Sometimes His silence means that something better is coming into our lives and that we need patience. They say children are extremely impatient but sometimes I think that adults are even more so. When we don’t get what we want when we ask for it, or when we don’t get an answer right away, we get mad and grumpy. We think that God doesn’t care for us as much as He cares for someone else. Kim didn’t exactly get what he wanted, his wife didn’t wake up as soon as he wanted and she didn’t remember him at first. But God had much greater plans for them then they ever realized then. Their love for one another was indestructible. Now their story is extremely inspirational to others. It’s proof of God’s miracles. That He does care for us, He just doesn’t always show it to us in the way that we would want Him to.
