A local teenager's gift to her boyfriend is going viral.

MARIETTA, Ga. -- A local teenager’s gift to her boyfriend is going viral.

Reagan Lee, 16, of Marietta, Ga., customized every page of a Bible as a gift for her boyfriend, 18-year-old Garrett Chisum.

Lee told BuzzFeed News she got the inspiration to customize the Bible after Chisum gave her his Bible with one of the couple’s favorite verses highlighted.

“I figured a Bible would be a cute, really pure gift,” she said. “And knowing my boyfriend, I knew he would love it even more if I customized it,” she said to BuzzFeed.

The couple has been dating for 11 months and Lee said it took her three months to finish the labor of love.
