Ian and Larissa Murphy, both 27, met in college in 2005 and started dating a few months following. Then in September of 2006, on his way to work to earn money for a ring, Ian's car slammed under an SUV. Along with part of his brain, it took the plans that they had made. And left a brain injury.
But then came eight twenty eight.
"And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to His purpose." Romans 8:28
God held them. They married on 8/28 in 2010.
Ian continues to work each day in therapy and spends time with the company that he founded with his best friend before his accident, Vinegar Hill. Larissa works in the world of marketing at a local bank.
They share their story on their blog, www.prayforian.com and just released their first book, Eight Twenty Eight.
"For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 8:38-39
