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…

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. Again, the objectification of women and distortion of God’s design for sex is promoted as this…

I Was Hosea’s Wife

I laid there, anxiously awaiting the morning and the events to come. Soon, I would put on my button up shirt and comfy shorts, just like they told me. I’d sit in a room with some of the dearest women to my heart, as curls were strategically placed in my hair. I’d rest my eyes…

Before the Lord saved me, I could have been one of those gals in the…

When Your Thoughts Are Wicked

When Your Thoughts Are Wicked

Have you ever been scared of your own sin? I’m talking “heart skips a beat, shame fills your head, despair in your stomach” kind of scared. A sinful thought that appears to come out of no man’s land enters your mind, breaks your weak heart, and off you go into a spiral of doubt. “I’m a…

How I Battled Lust as a Single Woman

How I Battled Lust as a Single Woman

I haven’t shied away from sharing my failures before Christ saved me and even after. Not in a spirit of boasting but rather in humility, recognizing where I came from. If you’ve been around me for long, you probably know I was held captive to lust and sexual immorality for many years. By God’s grace…

Why You Shouldn’t Tell Your Boyfriend Everything

Why You Shouldn’t Tell Your Boyfriend Everything

There are men other than my Husband who know me deeply. They know about my childhood, my struggles and dreams. I wish I could say I’m talking about my Dad and another Father figure but unfortunately, that isn’t the case. They were my previous boyfriends. As a teen, I was on a long search to…
