Can I Really Trust God With My Future?

Can I Really Trust God With My Future?

“If I do things my way I will be happy. I can’t trust God with something like this!”

“God’s ways are too religious for me, I need to make things happen my way or else I won’t be happy.”

“Only I know what I need. My future is my problem. Jesus can just come along with me for when I need help.”

“This is too precious a thing to trust God with.”

All of these statements are made from people who have..

How Should We View Being Single?

 Just a few days ago we celebrated Valentines Day. It’s a great day to show your friends and family how much you love them. But if you are a single girl, it’s a also a day that maybe might have made you feel a little left out or lonely  when you see other couples being sweet to each other. You might be wishing that someone loved you like that and wondering when they were going to come along.

How Do I Know He’s the ONE?

Have you ever wondered what true, lasting love looks and feels like? Maybe you are in a relationship that you think is not “living up to its true potential”. Maybe you need an example of real love to know if this is the guy for you; if he is the one that God has called you to marry.

We know that no one is perfect but don’t let that be your excuse to stay in a relationship with someone who might..

Hello there, Beautiful!

It is the start of a new year, new goals, new friends, new days to begin and enjoy. As we look back on the year we have just experienced we are reminded of the times we were made stronger through hard days, the times we smiled and laughed so hard we couldn’t control ourselves, the times we loved deeply, and the times we cried ourselves to sleep. But we look ahead,..

What Your Dream Guy Wants in a Girl

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..

Surviving a Heartbreak

Surviving a Heartbreak

Heartbreak hurts terribly. I never realized just how much though until it happened to me for the first time just a little over a month ago. Before that I had always just thought that it was a figure of speech. I didn’t know that it really does make your heart hurt physically and emotionally with grieving.

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.

Virtue and Chivalry in the 21st Century

The other day I was on Facebook and an ad for fashion came up that had the tagline describing their clothes as: “Noble, Elegant, Sexy, and Pure.” I thought, “Huh, that doesn’t sound right.” I mean, how did the word “Sexy” sneak its way in between the three other words?

In our generation, most people (mostly young people aged 13-30) just don’t even know the meaning of words like nobility,..

Family Matters

How many of you have a family? A husband and children? A mom or dad? Brothers or sisters? What are your viewpoints on family value? Did you know that God is greatly and exceedingly pleased when we unconditionally love our families?

Many women and men alike take for granted the great and awesome gift of family life. We desire friends and approval from other people while God is waiting for you to..
