Physical therapy was a lot more fun with Ellen helping than when her dad did the stretches for him. Their honeymoon was a series of fancy hotels with a few school presentations thrown in.
Life was full and happy and they were glad to be in each other’s arms every day and every night. The school visits turned into a book tour when Journey to Paradise was published.
In addition to speaking at schools, they were also speaking on afternoon talk shows and morning shows, and large church congregations.
Alex wouldn’t accept a penny for his speaking engagements and all the profits from the sale of their book were donated to organizations who also brought awareness to the dangers of teen drinking.
Traveling around the world living in fancy hotels turned out to be a great transition between living at home under their parents’ rules, and getting their own place together. That would come with time. For now, they were enjoying a very long honeymoon that happened to include a few speaking engagements.
Their experiment, however unorthodox, had worked wonderfully. What started off as a tiny awakening in Alex’s body was able to flourish once they were married. With no restrictions on the amount of passion that they were willing to share with one another, his body loved her body.
Alex was glad he had waited until they were married to explore each other’s bodies completely, but also very thankful that God had healed his body so that he could be close to his wife. They planned to someday have children, but for now, they were loving life, serving God, traveling the world speaking out against teen drinking and reaching out to teenagers and anyone who would sit down long enough to listen to their message.
This was it. This was the life Alex wanted for himself and his wife. Their honeymoon lasted a long, long time.
