The Lost Art of Dating

The Lost Art of Dating

I recently declared that I would take more risks. Part of this risk-taking included my dating life (or lack thereof). What I’ve learned is that I have no clue how to date. This comes partially from always dating friends in the past. We meet, we connect, we get to know each other on a strictly friend basis, then somewhere along the way an attraction hits. I always thought that this would be how … [Read More...]

Here are some results we thought you might … [Read More...]

How Do I Know if My Desires For Marriage Are Healthy?

We'd be hard-pressed to find a SingleRoots reader who doesn't desire marriage. There may be a few but, by and large, most Christian singles are wishing and hoping and thinking and praying and planning and dreaming of a marriage in their future. And there's nothing wrong with that. Many are content with their current lots, yet they still long for … [Read More...]

Work. Ministry. Stress. Crash. Repeat?

When I tell people I work from home, they nearly always respond in one of two ways: “Oh, that’s awesome! I wish someone would pay me to work from home,” or they say, “I could never do that. I’m not disciplined enough.” Truth be told, a lack of discipline does show up in my work-at-home environment, just not in the way one would assume. My … [Read More...]

When I Knew It Was Time to Change Churches

One Fall at my church, a Life Group which eventually changed my life began. The first evening, a dozen singles got together in what would be my future fiancee’s living room. The church didn’t have a singles ministry, so one was started from scratch. The recruiting process was simple: Each Sunday morning, the leaders from the group would … [Read More...]

Should I Foster or Adopt a Child if I’m Single?

A lot of people think adoption is trendy. They think those considering it are just following in the footsteps of Hollywood, à la Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, Sandra Bullock, Connie Britton, and Charlize Theron. However, most singles who are thinking about adoption would roll their eyes and unequivocally state that it has little to do with … [Read More...]

Changing Jobs Is No Big Deal

Changing Jobs Is No Big Deal

A couple weeks ago I went to a friend’s wedding and found myself the lone singleton at a reception table filled with married folks (all with multiple children). You can imagine my delight. The conversation ranged from play dates to daycare centers, from pediatricians to Yo Gabba Gabba! At one … [Read More...]

Are You Expecting the Unexpected?

Are You Expecting the Unexpected?

We never would have expected him to follow us into the rundown apartment building. We’d only met him the day before, and even then we only spoke for a little while. People didn’t follow groups into this building. Groups didn’t go into this building. We never would have expected it. I recently … [Read More...]

The Day My Debt Caught Up with Me

The Day My Debt Caught Up to Me

You never forget the crappy days. As much as you want to, you can't. I used to see this as a curse but now I see it as a blessing, for it's important for me to remember how far I've come. Or, how far He's brought me. Lately, God has been bringing me to new and exciting places. An example of this … [Read More...]
