Boys Are a Lousy God

Boys Are a Lousy God

Lately, I’ve been pondering my younger years. You know, those awkward high school days, walking the halls just trying to blend in or even sometimes trying to stick out for attention. I’ve been in both camps. Some of you are there now. I was a broken girl with a major craving for acceptance and the…

Marry a Man With These Characteristics

Marry a Man With These Characteristics

One thing that drives me nuts is the idea that real manhood equals a life of hunting, driving big trucks, and owning multiple guns. Mostly, because I look around and see many men who just aren’t wired that way. Some men care more about computers and would rather sleep in a comfy bed than in…

Fifty Shades Darker and the Savior Woman Mentality

Fifty Shades Darker and the Savior Woman Mentality

“I don’t know what I’d do if anything ever happened to you.” “Don’t you know you’re not the first woman to try to change him?” These boringly predictable quotes came through my car speakers on the radio last week.

Love Your Boyfriend More Than Your Sexual Desires

Love Your Boyfriend More Than Your Sexual Desires

If we have sex we will not get married. That’s what we told ourselves. This isn’t the case for everyone. Many couples have fallen into sin, repented and are happily married. But we knew that wouldn’t be the case for us. Like most Christians, we wanted so badly to honor God with our dating and…

Sweet Friend, You Can Wear The White Dress

Sweet Friend, You Can Wear The White Dress

The Lie There’s a lie still weaving it’s way through Christian circles. It’s the thought that purity is merely refusing to participate in certain sinful activities. It started when, in hopes to strike fear into adolescents, we began setting up various rules and regulations about what makes us pure. People became identified as such when…
