ON THE ROAD
Now that the students have gone to college, how do parents cope? What are they doing to handle their empty nest?
You don't have to be a lawyer or a doctor when you grow up (unless you want to). There are plenty of jobs that go outside the norm.
Coming Tuesday in Xtreme
Karin Calloway says decadent rocky road squares start with a cake mix and are perfect for back-to-school meetings or a Labor Day picnic.
Jennifer Curtis and Jonathan Sheets shared a friendship and a faith that brought them together, she said.
"God is in control of everything," she said. "Even when we don't have a clue, he has a special way of getting us to his perfect will. Jonathan is my perfect will."
They met at Victory Baptist Bible College in North Augusta. It was a move to LaGrange, Ga., where Mr. Sheets was living, that set things into motion.
She said she was spurred by a divine compulsion she couldn't shake to make the move to a town where her future husband was the only person she knew.
"I never would have thought I would have ended up being more than a friend to (Jonathan)," she said. "I figured God moved me to LaGrange for some reason. I just didn't think it would be him."
The couple exchanged vows Saturday at Morningside Baptist Church in Augusta.
