Overcoming Disappointment In Your Singleness

I’ve struggled with disappointment a lot in my life. This little voice somewhere deep inside always tells me I’ll be let down. It’s a cycle I’ve seen, but I didn’t know why I felt that way. My default response to hope was always, “It’ll probably never happen, but that’s OK.” Are you nodding your head right about now, thinking you’re …

Purity Is Greater Than Virginity

Virginity doesn’t mean what it used to mean. Before the easy access of pornography, virginity often meant that someone was pure in their life. Not so much now. Pornography has so oversexualized our culture that you don’t even have to watch it to know what it looks like. You just have to watch the latest Nicki Minaj music video, which leaves very little to the imagination. In the past, men would flip …

Sharing My Love For Lust With My Future Spouse

I wish I didn’t love porn. I don’t watch porn and have been freed from it, but I wish I didn’t love it. I wouldn’t have to have my cable box filtered, my amazon prime filtered, or have other men keep me accountable. For example, take sour cream. I hate sour cream. However, I don’t have to avoid it. I don’t …

A Letter To My Single (Guy) Friends

Hey, dude. I’m not sure if I’ve told you this lately, but thank you. In a world that is obsessed with sex, lust and “send nudes,” you’re living your life to a higher standard. When other guys are looking for hook-ups and opportunities for a night of Netflix and chill, you’re not. I can’t imagine the type of daily struggle …

Book Review: Forbidden Friendships by Joshua D. Jones

Why can’t men and women just be friends? It’s a question that many have asked before for one reason or another. Friendship seems so simple, and yet it can get overly complicated due to social expectations and unclear intentions. Maybe you’ve tried to pursue a mixed-gender friendship with honest intentions, but have had friends or family gently “encouraging” you to …

Fight Sexual Immorality And You Will Lose

It was around this time last year in January that I went to Puerto Rico for vacation. I was really excited to go. My first language is Spanish, and they use American currency there, so I thought it would be such a cool experience. I tend to be very economical with my money (call it “cheap” if you want to …
