Jess and Gabriel Conte Are Proof Godly Relationships Are Possible And True Love Does Exist

Youtube influencers Jess and Gabriel Conte have taught me to never settle for anything less than a pure and loving relationship, with God at the center of it all.


Jess and Gabriel's story is so inspiring because they aren't just any YouTube couple. They're a Christian couple, and you can really see that they make their faith the foundation of their relationship, and they take it seriously. I've watched their videos for years, and it was so magical to hear their story.

You can watch the wedding video here. Keep a box of tissues. You'll need them.

This is their story.

They lived in completely different countries -- Jess from Australia and Gabriel from America. They met on Instagram and hearing them tell stories about the conversations they had as friends before beginning a relationship is the cutest. You can watch the video of them reading their old DMs here. Jess knew about him through a mutual friend, and when she found out that he was a Christian, she followed him on Instagram. She sent him a DM asking what church he went to since she was going on a 3-week vacation in America, and after talking for a few weeks, they found a day to go to Gabriel's church, Hillsong LA. I think it's sweet that their first date was at church, and they had lunch after. When Jess went home from their date, she told her parents that she knew that Gabriel is the one she wanted to marry because he literally checked off every box off of her list about her ideal guy.

The tough part of their relationship was that it was long-distance. It was tough for both of them to find time to spend together in person, with it ending with them saying goodbye to each other. After dating for a year, they got married, and their vows were so beautiful and genuine. When they wrote each other letters before the wedding, Jess wrote, "After all of the goodbyes, we get to go home together forever." Gabriel crying while reading the letter portrays how excited and emotional they both were to spend their lives together, and it makes me tear up seeing him cry when he first sees Jess walking down the aisle.

Now, they've been married for two years, and they have since gotten a dog named Milo and have two homes in California and Boca Raton, Florida. Their YouTube videos show that their love is stronger than ever, and they plan to have children in the next few years.

With about 3 million subscribers to date, Jess and Gabriel make it clear that while they love their subscribers, they won't focus on numbers to define them. They choose to trust God and His plan and calling for them as they grow in faith and love.

They are living proof that the best relationship you will ever have is with a man who loves God as much as you do and uplifts you in faith.

Summer In College Is For More Than Just Working

No, you're never to hold to have fun in the summer.


There should never be an age where you stop having fun in the summer. The weather is nice, there are always things to do, and everyone is just naturally happier. So, regardless of whether you're 7 or 21, I'm talking to you.

During the year it can be hard to find a routine unless you are a very put together person. Sadly, I am not. Even when I tell myself I'm going to eat healthily, work out, and stop procrastinating, I usually don't follow through with that. At school, I find myself in somewhat of a constant catch-up mode. When I feel like I'm ahead on my homework or studying, that usually means I'm behind on being healthy in other aspects of my life. That is why I love summer. It's a chance to reset the clock for a second and catch your breath.

I get that having an internship or working is important for your post-graduation life, but having fun is important for your college years too. When you get a job in the real world, summer is going to look a lot different for you. That is why it's best to take advantage of the time now. This doesn't mean turning down that work experience, it means doing things other than just working.

First things first is finding a hobby you enjoy that you don't do at school. Pick it up for a little over the summer. Why not? For me, this is yoga. For whatever reason, I find myself too nervous to attend yoga classes at school. I have absolutely no reason to be anxious about doing something I like, but I am so I take the time to attend a few classes a week in the summer.

Secondly, try reading. Before you make that look of disgust on your face, think about the last time you read a book of your choosing. If it was recently, then kudos to you for managing your time well enough to do that. If you are not that person, then hello! I am talking to you. I am not a fan of reading because I usually associate it with homework. However, I find that when I have the time to browse the book section of a store for a few seconds, I find multiple books that jump out at me. During the summer I take the opportunity to read a little here and there. The nice part of leisure reading over school reading is that there's no deadline. You can read what you want when you want to.

Finally, learn something new. Again I usually associate learning with things that I am required to learn for my major. Learning something new that interests you is a different kind of rush. When I'm bored in class, I make bucket lists of little things I want to learn about. They can be big or small. One time I wanted to learn how to knit. Don't ask me why my 19-year-old self thought it would be sweet to sit on my porch in the summer knitting, but I did, and I'm kind of sad I didn't pursue that interest. When might I ever have time to learn how to knit again?

These might sound like quirky things to do, but you're young. Make a bucket list and try to cross one thing off each weekend. If you're like me, then you're a little scared of growing up. Scared you won't be able to accomplish all the things you want to. But, the fact of the matter is no one is going to make you accomplish them but you. So, take some initiative and do them. Summer is for more than just working; it's time to live a little and reset the clock.

Writing Is And Will Always Be A Part Of Me

Always & forever a creative outlet.


As I navigate my fourth year in college this coming August, I have realized that the way I have looked at writing has changed throughout the years. I have learned that writing will always be a passion of mine no matter what because my voice is unique. My voice may not be like everyone else's, but what I do know is that those reading (yes you) will understand what I am talking about most of the time.

When I write, I try to think about how I felt when I thought at the moment if I am writing about a personal experience. I think that whether its a personal story or just a fun story that I have to share, it always means something to me no matter what. But I do like when I am able to add in my own thoughts about an issue in society, if it's about technology or a mass shooting, I like to be able to dig into what I'm truly thinking about at the moment. Others may not be interested in what I have to say all of the time, but I do think that those who aren't readers of my content will eventually come around to read my content.

Why do I write? That's a good question that I have a pretty good answer to. To be honest, I like to write because it allows me to have a creative outlet to express myself. I get to tell others how I go about things in my life as an adult and sometimes through the good, the bad, and even the ugly moments too. I like that I am able to be open and honest when I am writing about how I feel towards people in my life, whether it's my family or friends driving me crazy at times (I promise I do love y' all haha).

At the end of the day, I think writing will always be something that I gravitate towards in my life as I keep growing and changing. I hope that you reading this will also find a passion in life to cherish and to make your mark on. I will always be thankful for this platform that I am allowed to express my thoughts freely on. Most certainly, I won't forget about my past pieces that I have written. This is only the beginning!
