They were just love letters shared between two ordinary people who turned a budding friendship to a blissful marriage: yet their courtship through words embodied declarations of love that resonated with their family for years to come. Christian author Gordon Smith recalls receiving a box of these love letters, written by his grandfather to his grandmother, as a 30th birthday gift; letters filled with valuable life lessons as well as testaments of his grandparents' shared faith in God and belief in the power of mutual respect. His new book, When Harry Met Lila, displays their lasting example of friendship-turned-love, strengthened through encouragement, honesty and congenial support for one another after the deaths of their mothers. Their inspiring, long distance relationship chronicled through letters educated Gordon on what it takes for his own marriage to thrive and how to truly love one another, as God had intended each of us to do.
