Stop running

Hey, guys. I know… it’s been a while. My apologies. When I got home from church on Sunday, I felt led to reread the story of Jonah, one that I’m sure you’re very familiar with. Jonah is a short book, doesn’t take that long to read. I always considered this prophet somewhat immature and very […]

10 random things every woman must remember

Hola, ladies! (How do you say “Cómo estás” to more than one person?) I’ve been working on a blog post on honeymoon myths, as well as one on “mishearing” God, but here’s a filler post in the meantime. I was thinking about many of my made-up proverbs and how interesting it is that they can […]

10 reasons why I’m glad I didn’t get married younger

Hello! For the record, I’m still a young woman. Yet about three times a week, someone will ask me some variation of “Why aren’t you married?” I have nothing against marrying young.

10 things she’ll probably look for before she says “Yes”.

Peter: I hope this finds you well. I recently wrote something on the Friend Zone and intended to post it before this, but because it’s addressed to men, I have to find a way to edit it down from the 2000-word letter it currently is to a more palatable length. In the meantime, here’s the […]

Guile-abastron

Hey, ladies. I’m sitting here trying to figure out two things: whether my coconut rice is too coconut-y and whether I’m just a drama queen in serious need of some Alabastron therapy.

10 ways your FB profile might be keeping you single

Hey. How are you today? How can I pray for you? YES… this is another post about this type of thing. My apologies to everyone who’s been listening to relationships sermons at church for the past 30 Sundays. I don’t think I have too many single friends left… but I’d be so overjoyed if the few […]

10 things that try to draw us away from Christ

Howdy. It’s been a while. Today, I decided that there’s a truth I need to face. There are things in my life that are fighting for my attention, trying to distract me from my relationship with Christ.

Stop taking that woman for granted

Dear married and courting men who are taking your wives and girlfriends for granted, It’s been a while. I blame it on the rat race. I have an interesting update on that, but for now, I wanted to share something that’s been on my heart. I am writing this (or rather, I wrote it on […]
