Reverend Kathy Kiuna has advised young couples to take things slow in marriage as it's a lifetime commitment, something many ignore.

According to the mother of three, most people assume that once you get married everything falls into place.

Sharing a glimpse of her marriage journey to Allan Kiuna, Kathy said

'Just want to thank God for my cheerleader, my coach, my bishop, my hero and my best friend all in one.

When I met him 27 years ago he was just a young man from East Lands with nothing attached to his name apart from a vision.

I thank God that I did not go for a man with a television coz I’d now be watching vision on that television.

Before you get on admiring and goals subject, let me tell you. The roller coaster began soon after our wedding and the climbing journey all the way from the floor started.'

'We were being housed by a widow and couldn’t afford even sch fees and were sleeping on the floor in the same room with our two girls then.

We couldn’t function at the junction and became like sister and brother. We kept saying the first stop when God comes through will be a hotel .

Those who think it’s for food your right as well. All this while I never changed how I treated him and never disrespected him one day.'

Kathy said in Allan she saw a man with a vision hence she decided to stick by him.

'I kept seeing the vision. We have built for the last 26 years and are still building coz I believe with all my heart that what I saw in him has not manifested fully.

Keep watching this space. Why all this stories, because you need to know that God gives you raw material.

What you do with the raw material is what blesses or messes your life. What you admire now has 26 years of history.'

Her final advise

'I’m urging you my daughters/sons and friends all over, start making your history now and work with what God gives you. You will be surprised what will come out of it.

That simple young man, that girl who can’t match colors will be your greatest blessing.

Don’t go for married men/women coz that only says you want what’s made you don’t want the work. Who gets hurt in the end.'
