Single and…Helping Plant a Church

Single and…Helping to Plant a Church

We love hearing about any single who is living counter-culturally, especially those who say, “Why not?” when considering something offbeat, like moving across the state to join in the work God is doing in another city.

When We Love the Wrong People

When We Love the Wrong People

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve wished I could change someone else’s feelings for me. I’ve spent hours praying for him to change his mind, I’ve had countless fantasies about him waking up and realizing that he had never really seen me before. In my mind, he is my perfect match. He likes the same music I like, he wants to be involved in the … [Read More...]

Lessons Learned from Flag Football: Intentions Are Meaningless

I recently played in a flag football tournament here in Dallas. The teams were co-ed, and mine happened to consist of several very athletic guys, plus six of us girls who were mostly just there to meet the criteria of “co-ed.” I found that with quick footwork, I was able to guard our quarterback against most of the girls and could even slow … [Read More...]

8 Ways to Serve Others While You’re at Work

Community Is Worth Fighting For

I’ve been here before. In fact, I’m well-acquainted with this place. But just because I know it well doesn’t mean I love it. Or that I want to stay here.
