Through a powerful personal story, the author shares his experiences of love, life, and faithfulness as he journeys through this world. Life is more than a series of events; it is and adventure filled with opportunities to grow closer to Christ, reflecting His light as He leads us further to our destiny. Author Mel Layne has lived out this truth, as a kismet moment with a young girl he met in high school would forever change the course of his life. Layne followed God’s call to sharing the good news of Jesus to her, and with many love letters and spiritual conversations, the two were married. 

With profound spiritual revelation, an inspiration for daily living, and a Christ-centered perspective of love and marriage, Living out His Unseen Plan in Real Time: A True Story of Young Love, Marriage, Faith, and the Unexpected captures the beauty of the human experience and encourages readers to surrender their lives to the One who holds the future in His hands.
