Are You Evaluating the Opposite Sex Fairly?

I am not a fan of Twilight. I haven’t read any of the books and I haven’t watched any of the movies. I suppose that’s okay though because I’m not really the target audience.

Now what do Twilight and Bond … [Read More...]

Give Grace or Be a Critic: It’s Your Choice

I was so convicted in that moment. I had prepared myself with a firm defense of why I couldn’t do something he had asked me to do. I was quite … [Read More...]

At 24 years old I went on my first mission trip for three months to a country in Central Asia. I loved my time in that country, but I also got a taste of missionary life which made me realise that it would be hard going as a single. I declared that would only go back to this field if I were married. … [Read More...]
