Honoring God While I Wait

Honoring God While I Wait

I’ve been waiting… And waiting… And waiting some more for that special man to come into my life. He hasn’t shown up yet. In my twenties, I held on (more like a death grip) to the fantasy of having a husband. Even after my conversion experience, I considered marriage the ultimate prize. I got into a relationship about a year after I came to Christ, and the signs were already blaringly … [Read More...]

Redefining Soul Mates

I’m just going to admit it right now: I’m a sucker for fairy tales. I love the idea of that one guy and that one girl meeting while singing in a forest/fighting ogres/at a ball, then falling in love and living happily ever after. Something about that serendipitous dream makes my little heart go pitter-patter. But when it comes to real life, … [Read More...]


Battle of the Online Dating Profiles :: Round 1

Most of us would agree on one thing: We dread writing an online dating profile. There's so much pressure to make a good first impression toward a host of online matches. We want to walk the fine line between standing out but not too strongly, being different but not appearing weird, and sharing our heart yet not getting too personal. It's an art, … [Read More...]

Finding a Church When You’re Single (in GIFs) :: Because Sometimes Words Just Aren’t Enough

We’ve all been there: Driving up to the church parking lot, debating whether or not to park in “visitor parking” and thus call further attention to our presence. Turning off the car and gathering all of our courage and determination—as well as a few accountability texts from our friends—and walking toward the worship center. Our eyes shifting to … [Read More...]


How Introversion Saved Me from Heartbreak

How Introversion Saved Me from Heartbreak

I think a lot of times we refuse to look past the negative of ourselves. We don’t take long enough to see that our “weaknesses” usually have blessings as well. I’m highly introverted; I practically broke the scale on the Myers-Briggs Personality Test. For the longest time I thought it was a … [Read More...]

The college version of me is quite different from the current version.

If You’re Really a Christian…

I was a moron in college. Don’t get me wrong, my GPA was really good and I kept my scholarship. I was a also moron in Southern Missouri. It has nothing to do with the geography, because my useless knowledge skills shine there. The problem is that my past is in both places. I’m not in line to … [Read More...]

Community Is Worth Fighting For

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. When it comes to community, I’ve been struggling on all fronts for a while. The ebb and flow of friendships is both a beautiful and … [Read More...]
