What Makes Marriage Strong and Beautiful

What Makes Marriage Strong and Beautiful

Love is a complicated infrastructure.

A thing you are either building up or letting fall into decay.

What makes it strong are the deeds done in the everyday walk of life.

What makes it beautiful is two unique people coming together and making their own unique kind of love.

It doesn’t come from textbooks or formulas, or to-do lists.

You’ve probably seen my parents from afar, either online here..

Trusting God with Your Relationship Status

Trusting God with Your Relationship Status

In today’s society it seems as though singleness is a curse. Our world portrays singleness as a condition of loneliness, doomed to the unfortunate. But I challenge this notion by saying that one can be single, and not be lonely. When you’re busy pursuing the kingdom, you don’t have time to be lonely.

If we are not careful, singleness can challenge our self-worth because of thoughts like… “if..

A Promise Box for Your Future Husband

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..

He Is Worth the Wait: The Value of Patience and Trust

He Is Worth the Wait: The Value of Patience and Trust

If you’re a Christian you’ve heard it a million times: Trust in the Lord

We all know it’s easier said than done. For me, I like to be in control so trusting does not come easily. I love to plan and I love to know. When I was five years old I dreamed of becoming a party and wedding planner. Sometimes it just about kills me to not know what lies ahead—but when I think about it—where’s the fun in actually knowing? The mystery of what’s to come should ignite us with wonder. God mostly calls us to trust in Him because it shows our faithfulness to Him, but more than that, trusting in Him allows for a deeper bond between us and our Creator.

I will be the first to admit that trusting in God’s plan is difficult, but it is also life changing.

What to Look For in a Godly Man

What to Look For in a Godly Man

*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..

How to Be a Woman Worth Pursuing

We’ve written several articles in the past about how to be a godly woman in a difficult generation, we’ve talked about singleness, we’ve talked about relationships, but I thought it would be a good idea to address the topic of how to be a godly woman worth being pursued by a godly man.

Sometimes it’s hard to know what is required. Sometimes you wonder if you are doing something wrong if you’ve..

Navigating the Undefined Relationship

Navigating the Undefined Relationship

It’s the agony and the ecstasy, isn’t it? An amazing godly man shows interest in you, and you want to know if this is “the one.” Like, now.

Fear looms on the horizon and the emotional stakes are high. You want to do the right thing, you long to honor the Lord, but what does that look like in this undefined relationship? How do you risk the chance at love while guarding your heart from unnecessary anguish?

I spent long years wrestling with this question, and it has been the subject of countless conversations with other single friends. We girls long for clarity, guarantees, and a fail-proof method for falling in love with the right guy at the right time.

But there are none…

3 Ways To Get The Right Kind Of Man To Like You

3 Ways To Get The Right Kind Of Man To Like You

Blog posts and Youtube videos with titles like the one this article has, have always annoyed me. The perspective is completely backward, the focus is very selfish, and they encourage the wrong kind of mindset. It’s always about manipulation. What knobs you can turn, and what levers can you pull to get the result you want. On top of that, the tips and tricks advised would only work on reeling in..

Why Do Some Girls Act Better Than Other Girls?

Why Do Some Girls Act Better Than Other Girls?

We’ve all experienced it. The girl who makes you feel like dirt. The girl who makes you feel like all of your efforts to try to fit in are worthless. The girl who makes sure that she gets all of the attention while you agonizingly watch on the sidelines. This is the girl who makes you feel like she is better than you.

First of all, I would like to say that you aren’t the only one who has..
