To The Young Wife With Too Many Expectations

To The Young Wife With Too Many Expectations

Recently I married my best friend December 18, 2016. This has been the most amazing  7 month whirlwind of love, and pure joy that I’ve ever experienced. Dylan and I have grown closer than ever. We are learning how to bring everything to God first and putting the Lord above ourselves and seeing each other the way God sees us-that is how we can learn to be selfless and therefore love each other..

Have you felt like a weight has fallen over you? Are you stuck in a place in life where nothing seems to be changing? Where the same thing happens day in and day out and you’re not getting anywhere? Have you prayed and begged God for something and not seen an answer? Do you feel like you’re being held back but can’t put a finger on what it is that’s got a hold over you?

Maybe you are a mom with..

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..

A Love Story Only God Could Write Part 1

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..

10 Real “Relationship Goals” Everyone Should Have

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..

How to Handle Your Sexual Desires as a Single Girl

How to Handle Your Sexual Desires as a Single Girl

(By Kristen Clark)

I may be married now, but I was single for 24 years and I know exactly what it’s like to have unfulfilled sexual desires. In fact, I have a really embarrassing story to confess to you.

When I was a young teenager, I thought it would be a good idea to “practice” kissing before I met my husband. So…I “practiced” by smooching a designated kissing spot on my wall inside my..

It’s Okay to be Different From Other Christian Women

It’s Okay to be Different From Other Christian Women

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.

Why You Should Ditch Your Husband Checklist

Why You Should Ditch Your Husband Checklist

A little while ago, one of my friends went on a date with a guy. He was attractive, fun, loved the Lord, passionate, and she loved spending time with him. As her best friend though, something about this guy rubbed me the wrong way. He had this long list of qualifications necessary to be his girlfriend.

The many qualifications on this list ranged from “sexy,” to “passionate woman of God”, to..
