As is the normal practice of teenage girls, my friend and I were watching and talking about cute engagement videos in class a year ago and she mentioned one in particular that was long but worth watching. I went home and pulled up the video, not knowing that it would change my life. I cried all the way through and was astounded by the genuine and overwhelming passion for God that the couple had and such genuine love for each other. The couple in the video was Bonnie Kate and Max Zoghbi. Bonnie Kate was shot in the knee during the Aurora, CO Batman movie shooting, but she continues to live a life marked by grace and complete joy in Christ. In the video, it shows how Max selflessly pursues her and exemplifies what a man after God's own heart looks like. They quickly turned from just a cute couple in a video to my role models and inspiration in my daily life. I had the honor of getting to meet Max and watch him and Bonnie Kate speak live at Sadie Robertson's "Live Original" tour this past week, and I want everyone in the world to hear their story and see how incredible their relationship with God and with each other is. Here are just a few of the many reasons I love the Zoghbi's:
It is worth every single minute. Please watch it if you have time to, I promise you'll never regret it. It's adorable and will make you want to pursue Jesus so much more afterward.
and then once you're done with that, watch this:
Bonnie Kate's Instagram
I can't tell you how many times I scroll through her feed and feel overwhelmingly satisfied. I know perfection isn't attainable, but she comes pretty darn close.
Bonnie Kate is the queen of all flower crowns. She makes them daily, as seen in Max's Instagram stories and her posts.
Max's poetry, speaking, and videography
They're both so talented. His passion for videography and his eloquence in rhetoric and poetry is amazing. (I cried the entire time at Live Original when he spoke, not gonna lie.)
They live out of a '79 Airstream that doubles as their mobile studio! I mean I don't think you can get any cooler than these two. They're constantly on the road seeking out new adventures and documenting them through videos and Instagram. Their website http://www.beadventure.us can show you more!
They are God-focused, selfless, and totally in love. She inspires me to become the woman of God she is who will one day marry a man of God like Max.
"So thankful for these big strong arms that help carry me when I'm weary" -Bonnie Kate
Bonnie Kate and Max, you are truly incredible people. I pray for you and hope you know there are so many people that look up to you both in so many ways. Thank you for impacting my life and I know you'll impact many to come.
