If Heterosexual Marriage Were Illegal

It’s apparently wedding season. I’ve seen so many engagements and weddings on social media lately that it seems like someone is always getting hitched. As a single person it’s really what I should expect. I’m single, a lot of my friends are single, and I go to events where single people are present. So since most of my friends are …

The Last Time I Hooked Up

The last time I thought about hooking up was yesterday. I sometimes go through these seasons where I feel my flesh trying to get the best of me. It’s those days that “Submit to God, resist the devil and he will flee” just doesn’t seem real. I kept thinking of whom I could contact. My old stopping ground was Craigslist, …

I had been dating this woman for a couple of months. It was really good getting to know each other. We went on several dates, out for coffee, running, to the fair … it was nice. I was proud of myself because in the past, my boundaries had not been the greatest. I did a very good job at guarding …

Response To: Why Pregnancy Before Marriage Isn’t A Sin

Why Pregnancy Before Marriage Isn’t Sin

I got a phone call once from someone who told me she had “bad news.” “I’m pregnant,” she said. As I heard these words, I had been aware of the situation this young, single mom was in for a while. But when I first heard that she had bad news, I did not think being pregnant would qualify as that. …

Once A Fat Kid Always A Fat Kid?

I was 10 years old on vacation visiting family.  It was an unofficial family reunion. It was always pretty cool to see my family from all over congregate at my grandma’s house in Mexico. Lots of food, lots of games and lots of fun. “Let’s race!” someone shouted. Of all the games that we played, that was the one I …

The Woman Of My Dreams Wasn’t My Soul Mate

I think Disney trains us very young to look and find our soul mate. In each fairytale, there’s a handsome prince, a beautiful princess, a curse in the land, a rescue, a first kiss, and they live happily ever after.

The Negative Effects Of Porn

I was 6 years old when I saw my first pornographic film. Some would wonder how a kid that age got anything pornographic in the 80s. Most people my age at that time usually found something in their parents’ bedroom. You’re very curious at that age, and anytime someone tells you “No, don’t go in here” or “Don’t do that,” …

This was a time where the Lord was still refining me, and I was still trying to understand what it was to “guard your heart.” As men we always hear that we are to guard a woman’s heart. I’m sure you’ve heard it many times at this point. But what I …
