One Large Mormon Family

The story of "Seva" and "Tillerbygg"

On March 17th, 2004 we married in the Stockholm Sweden Temple after meeting on LDSMingle.

Both of us became single during 2003, and felt the need of finding a new spouse. She joined LDSMingle in December 2003 while he joined on the 25th
of January 2004.

When "Tillerbygg" joined LDSMingle "Seva" received a message that there was a 100% match that had joined the site. A 100% match is not rare, but a 100% match from Scandinavia does not pop up very often. Both of us are Scandinavian and the "market" here is a lot smaller than in the US. "Seva" comes from Gothenburg, Sweden and "Tillerbygg" comes from Trondheim, Norway. The distance between these two places is about 500 miles. That might sound like a lot, but it's a lot closer than any other place in Europe or anywhere else in the world.

"Seva" decided to send a "smile" to "Tillerbygg", even though he had not yet put out his picture, on the 25th of January. "Tillerbygg" responded by sending a mingle mail where he expressed an interest in exchanging mail with Eva. A lot happened the following few days, e-mails were sent, feelings developed, prayers answered and phone calls were made.

"Seva", having a strong faith in Heavenly Father's willingness to give her guidance in her life, wanted to find out if Lars was a righteous man with whom she could share her life. The answer that she received on the 27th was a very strong and clear yes. At this point, we had not even shared a short version of our lives with each other. "Seva" didn't tell "Tillerbygg" about the answer that she had received for a few days.

It was amazing how fast our mutual feelings developed during just a few days. On Saturday, the 31st "Tillerbygg" changed his profile on LDSMingle to tell other girls that he from now on will give all his attention to one special girl. "Seva" did the same. At this point, "Seva" felt that it was time to share with "Tillerbygg" the answer she had received to her prayer. This triggered a desire
for "Tillerbygg" to find out the same. He fasted and prayed and received the same answer that "Seva" previously had received.

On Saturday the 31st, we spoke for the first time on the phone. Both of us were a little nervous, but there was no reason for that, communication went very smoothly. Since then we've spoken either on the phone or in person every day, except one.

We met for the first time the weekend of the 5th through the 7th of March. That was a fantastic weekend. We had already decided to get married, and the date was set for the 17th of March. Waiting to get to know each other better and meet several times was not an alternative to us. We already knew that this was right, and that our Heavenly Father would help us work through our
practical challenges.

Within a few months, "Tillerbygg" will be moving to Gothenburg with his 4 children to unite with "Seva" and her 3 children to make one large mormon family.
