The eHarmony Experiment :: Glenn’s Story, Month 1

Since we began the Online Dating Experiment, we've followed several ladies on their eHarmony journey, and none of them have had overwhelming results. In fact, Lauren tried both eHarmony and Match, and she preferred Match. But we wanted to get a guy's perspective on eHarmony, too.

Choosing Not to Harden My Heart

“Boldly, I approach your throne / Blameless now I’m running home…” I sang the words along with everyone else at the Rend Collective concert. It’s one of my favorite worship songs because it calls us, it calls me, to run to my Father because of His great love for me, to run home because the Cross has purchased my salvation.
