Thank you all for such a lovely response to the first post about Dylan and I’s love story! Here is part 2.
September 30th, 2015: Wednesday night, Dylan and I had gone to a Bible study and picked up a kitten for my little brother’s birthday present. We were driving home with a crying baby kitty and were talking about Dylan’s fear and concern about his past having a bad affect on me. He was..
April 2015: I was a wreck. The past winter and spring had been the darkest time in my life. I had gone through a terrible, relationship a few months before and I was struggling with fear, doubt, anger, bitterness, depression and anorexia. God was calling me into a deeper walk with him but I was too consumed with what had gone wrong in my life to reach out to Him. Not that I wasn’t doing my..
When “Relationship Goals” first became a thing I thought it was pretty cute. There are images of couples doing really cute, funny things together with the caption “relationship goals”. They are quite popular with everyone it seems. From pictures of couples kissing and holding each other, doing cute poses, to being super awkward and funny together. While the idea is cute and the sentiment is..
Hi everyone, my name is Lisa Hallahan. If you don’t already know who I am, I am the author and founder of this blog. I started writing and posting regularly on the blog (then called Young Keepers of the Home) in March of 2013. It was a small ministry then and I enjoyed sharing my thoughts and what God was telling me to write. Soon, the ministry quickly grew and grew. It came to a point where I..
I knew a girl once who was worried that she wouldn’t look like the perfect Christian girl to whoever she met. She was worried that the older women in her church wouldn’t think she was as mature or as wise as her own mother. She was worried that the younger Christian women would think that she was not “relatable” enough-meaning she had to get with the modern flow of Christianity.
Let’s say that you’re at a time in your life where you could be in a relationship that leads to marriage. What are you doing to prepare for that role? It is an important stage in your life and you will probably (with God’s hand) be married for the rest of your life. But if we are headed for such a huge blessing and responsibility, then what are we to do to prepare for that?
Earlier this spring I was hired by an amazing ministry to be a youth counselor in the beautiful Redwood forest in the Santa Cruz mountains of California. I left in June and enjoyed a brutal, beautiful, difficult, amazing, summer with 40 other staff members and hundreds of kids.
The reason I say it was difficult and wonderful at the same time is because it was. I grew in many ways I thought..
The car pulled in the driveway, I got out and walked into the house and went up to my room. I looked in the mirror at myself and let out a heavy sigh. How could I have left the house looking that way?
Why are my legs so big?
Why is my hair so flat?
Why can’t I keep a clear face?
The list of what was wrong with my image ran through my mind a million miles per hour. I couldn’t stop judging myself..
Married life. No one knows what it is like until they’ve been married. It can be rewarding, promising, challenging and surprising in many ways. Right now, you’re either single or in a relationship and all you know is your day-to-day life. But did you know that your future husband needs to hear from you right now? From the girl that you are on this day. He wants to know what you’re like. What..
*Last Tuesday, we published an article called How to be a Woman Worth Pursuing. We gained quite a few responses concerning the article and decided to write one about what to look for in a godly man.
When you look around at the world of men today, it’s hard to not be discouraged by some of the character traits (or lack of them) that appear in the men. Rarely do we see a man who acts or shows..
