Dear Christmas, I am writing this letter to tell you how I feel. I have been bottling up these emotions for most of my adult life. It is time to show up and tell my truth to you. To put it bluntly: I love you and I hate you. The early years with you were so memorable. We would get …

The Art Of Being Alone

Lord Help

There was a time in my life when I felt utterly alone. It was my first year of graduate school, and I was living off-campus in my own apartment.

When You Feel Like You Will Never Get Married

You had it all planned out. You’d go to college, where there are thousands of singles. You’d lock eyes with someone in Bible study. You’d start studying together. You’d start dating. You’d graduate together. You’d get engaged at 23. Married at 24. First kid at 26. You’d be the cool younger parents. It would be great. Back to reality. You’re …

What To Do While You Wait

Have you ever been in a long line at the store and stuck by a complainer? You know, the lady with her nose up in the air, tapping her foot (not even in rhythm), checking her watch every five seconds while complaining (to whoever will listen) about how they need more lines open and she doesn’t have time to stand …

What Does It Look Like To Wait For A Mate?

My heart was in agony. I couldn’t handle the unknown any longer. I needed rest. So I asked God a simple question: “Yes or no?” I was actually in a healing and encouraging season of life, after being in ‘deep valley’ and ‘refining fire’ seasons. At that point, I had been single again for 7 years. My first husband left …
