Dear Adam :: Christian Dating Advice on Texting and Emailing

Dear Adam, I have a great idea. If you disagree with your girlfriend’s decision or opinion on something, why don’t you write her a long email outlining your stance and why you think it’s right? After all, who wants to waste time having a mature discussion when you can just make your point without the interruption of an actual conversation! And never mind that females, notorious for … [Read More...]

Online Dating Experiment

Online Dating Experiment :: 3 Sites, 3 Months, 1 Person [Month 2]

I’ve entered into this place where online dating feels a bit like a part-time job. I realize that the average online dater isn’t going to be tackling 3 sites at once, but thanks to my dear friends at SingleRoots, that’s how I’m doing things at the moment. As I type this, I have 57 new eHarmony matches waiting to be explored. Hopefully I’ll have time to go through them this weekend because … [Read More...]

Resisting Spiritual Blessings: Pushing Back on the Things I Don’t Like

So I know I'm the only one, but I have some opinions about things. Lots. Just a few. And I've been known to draw a line in the sand a time or two and resist certain things based on principle (or stubbornness, arrogance, or sometimes just plain stupidity). Most of the time, my resistance is not because the things are necessarily bad, but rather … [Read More...]

The Evolution of Singleness in Your 20s and 30s :: A Guy’s Perspective (in GIFs)

Gentlemen, you didn't think we'd forget, did you? Last week, we shared the Evolution of Singleness for the Ladies--a stroll down memory lane showing how women come to terms with their single state over the course of a few decades. And this week, we're zeroing in on the male mind. Not every Christian guy on the face of the Earth will be able … [Read More...]

Do You Struggle with Jealousy?

Do You Struggle with Jealousy?

As teenager, I remember distinctly thinking, “When I’m an adult, I won’t be jealous anymore. I won’t care that I get left out of things occasionally or that my best friend has another best friend and sometimes she does more stuff with her than me. When I’m an adult, none of that will matter.” Boy, was I wrong. I’ve come to see that … [Read More...]

The Evolution of Singleness in Your 20s and 30s :: A Girl’s Perspective (in GIFs)

If you've been single long enough, you know that your feelings about the matter can change like the shifting sand. There are good days and bad, but most of us still hold out hope that marriage is in our futures. If there's one thing we can all agree on, the single gal we were when we entered college is a far cry from the one we became in our … [Read More...]

Love Is in the Air (and I’m Not Handling It Well)

Ahh, spring has arrived...

Spiritual Retreat: A Weekend Away by Myself

I’ve never taken a trip by myself. I mean, I’ve traveled to meet up with friends and spent the night alone in a hotel room along the way. My passport has plenty of stamps, too, but there’s always been at least one person there with me when I was getting those stamps. Not too long ago, I found … [Read More...]

8 Ways to Serve Others While You’re at Work

We often think about ways to serve others in our home, in our church, or even in our city, but often we overlook our workplace. And it’s easy to do. After all, for many of us, it’s the one place we go to daily that we tolerate, but don’t exactly…love. Some of us are so busy counting down the … [Read More...]

Singles Ministries (in GIFs) :: Because Sometimes Words Just Aren’t Enough

Singles ministries. If we’re honest, we have a love/hate relationship with them. We love them because they’re our community and they give us an opportunity to serve and grow within the Body of Christ. But we also kinda get annoyed with them. Because, well, because they can be quirky and … [Read More...]

A (Fun) Commandment You Might Be Forgetting About

About 10 years ago, as I was in the process of starting my first company, I was working 7 days a week. During the week, I would work 12-14 hour days, and on Sunday, to respect the Sabbath, I would trim it back to only 3-4 hours. One weekend, the Holy Spirit convicted me of working on Sundays. I … [Read More...]
