What Your Dream Guy Wants in a Girl

I recently did an interview on the topic of dating, marriage and courtship. I was giving my thoughts on romance, boundaries, guys and how I want my future relationship to work out.

One of the questions the lady interviewing me asked was “what qualities are you looking for in guy?” 

Talk about a super basic question that I should easily know the answer to. Wrong! I was totally caught off guard..

Be the Influence Instead of Being Influenced

The other day I was listening to a conversation between my youngest sister and youngest brother. As I sat there (harmlessly) listening to this conversation I heard my sister mimic something I had said earlier that day. I had no idea that Cali had been in the room when I said it but apparently she was and had just repeated me. Same tone of voice and everything!

This got me thinking. It just goes..

A Hospitable Heart for the Holidays

Oh yes, it’s that time of year again and I am soooo beyond excited for the upcoming holidays. At my house we have many traditions that I like to hold dear to my heart and it’s what makes me so cheery right around this time of year.

Gaining Patience Through Trials and Tribulation

The topic of this article is having patience in tribulation. I would like to share a personal experience with you to start things off. When I was 16 I was moving some very heavy furniture by myself. (I’ve never been the one to wait for the man power!) Well the next day my lower back was in terrible pain. I didn’t know what was wrong with it at the time but after several cat scans, x-rays, and..

Surviving the “Relationship Status”

Lori tossed her books onto her nightstand and then threw herself on her bed. She began crying and sobbing into her pillow. God had finally blessed her with an amazing man in her life and things were going great between them. She just couldn’t understand why she felt so scared and so upset. Lori had thought that once she began a relationship with someone that it would be fun and that it would..

How to Handle Your Desire for a Boyfriend

{Guest Post by Bethany Baird}

Annie was twenty-two going on twenty-three, boyfriend-less and struggling to trust in God. She lived in a small town, worked at a small business and went to a small church. Let’s just say the male prospects in town were small as well.

The Older Sister Career

The Older Sister Career

It was a beautiful evening and I had an important, special event to go to. I rushed into my room and brushed out my hair. I put on my lipstick and curled my eyelashes. I primped and prepared and brushed and blushed in front of the mirror. I fixed my hair and donned my dress added the finishing touches and looked myself over in the mirror. As I gazed through the glass I looked at the reflection..

Made To Be Brave

Made To Be Brave

Recently, Jesus called me through a few trials and lessons that needed to be learned. During this time, I was able to go deep to the root of the situation in this time of closeness to Him. The Lord exposed and cleansed me of so many things and I am so thankful that He did! I was able to recognize the self-pity and loneliness I was feeling and was finally able to call it what it was – sin. But..

Shouldn’t Guys Be Modest Too?

Shouldn’t Guys Be Modest Too?

“Why is modesty constantly directed towards women?” “What about men being modest too?”

Have you ever asked yourself or others this question? Have you ever read an article or book on modesty and wonder why one wasn’t written for men too? Several women asked me the above questions more than three or four times last week. It’s a great question/topic. I hope that when this article is read that no..
