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 longing in Annie’s heart to finally meet and marry the man of her dreams was becoming overbearing. How could she possibly remain..

College, Guys, and the Homeschooled Girl

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?”

Girl or Woman, Which One Are You?

I was in town the other day driving around with my younger sister when I spotted the most mind boggling bumper sticker I have ever seen.

“To me, a lady is not frilly, flouncy, flippant, frivolous and fluff-brained, but she is gentle, she is gracious, she is godly and she is giving.
