Jack Gist, a contributor for The Western Journal, pointed out in a recent article that conservative culture and society as a whole has been established on three pillars: God, family, and country. South Carolina Republican Sen. Tim Scott just announced some major life news concerning the “family” pillar that would has led many to start speculating that he could be gearing up to be former President Donald Trump’s vice presidential pick.
Just one day announcing he would be backing Trump for president, despite being from former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley’s home state, Scott finally popped the question to his girlfriend, Mindy Noce, on Kiawah Island, a report from Fox News revealed.
You’re probably wondering what Noce said. Well, folks, I hope you’re ready for this news. She said yes! Congratulations, Senator.
She said YES.
Mindy, thank you for making me the luckiest man in the world.

Here’s more from the report:
Not only did Scott post the joyful occasion on X for all the world to see, he also quoted Proverbs 18:22, “He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the Lord.”
Scott already serves his country as a United States senator, and he makes no secret of the role his religious beliefs play in his life. So he has now all three boxes checked — God, family and country. That looks good should Trump opt to choose him as a running mate when and if the time comes.
Scott, 58, called his engagement the second most important decision behind becoming a Christian, according to Fox. There are two of the three pillars again, underscoring that Scott is a solid conservative.
When Scott was still in the 2024 GOP primary race, he introduced his long-time girlfriend, Noce, during a debate in November. According to the Fox report, the couple first met in church, which is the best place in the world to meet a potential spouse. The two built a bond over studying the Scriptures. That, folks, is how it should be done. Scott just keeps winning and winning.
On Sunday, Scott told former South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy, host of Fox News’ “Sunday Night in America with Trey Gowdy,” that, “Going to the beach and getting on one knee, and asking Mindy to marry me was so much more important than anything else, and I wanted to make sure that that sacred day would not be disturbed by anything political.”
Scott is said to be in the running to be Trump’s pick for VP should Trump win the GOP nomination, according to the New York Post. But he’s not alone.
Rep. Elise Stefanik of New York, Sen. J.D. Vance of Ohio and Trump’s former press secretary and current of Arkansas Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders are also in the running. There’s even some speculation about conservative commentator Tucker Carlson.
In an interview with Dana Bash on CNN, the South Carolina Republican stated that he’s ready to help get Trump elected to the presidency “in my home state of South Carolina for the next four or five weeks, and then beyond.”
Pray for Scott and Noce as they plan to become one flesh in the sight of God.
