The Single Christian And A Celebrating God

Every once in a while, I run into a Christian single who is chronically drab, dour or otherwise non-celebratory.

The current holiday …

The Best Time To Win A Friend Back

Recently, I said something I thought was innocuous to a good friend. I didn’t know how bothered she was about it until two days later, when she texted, then called me to talk about it.

Healthy Habits for Singles, Part 3: Sleep

“Sleep? That’s something I do in my spare time,” is the attitude of many in our culture, even among God’s people. Just feed them a cup of coffee the next morning, and they’re up and running again.
