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 …

God, You’re Late

Years ago someone told me that God had written on His calendar the day that I would meet my future husband, so I should stop worrying and enjoy the single life until that day arrived.

Finding Joy In Your Singleness

“Why am I still single?” You suppress an eye roll at the good intentions of the ever-questioning, curious onlookers. “You’re such a catch!” they say. “Why hasn’t anyone snatched you up?” they ask. “That’s what I’d like to know!” you want to scream. Instead you just smile and shrug, and, once again, take your weary heart before God, asking, “What’s …

[Movie] The Dating Project

Let’s be honest: It seems like no one understands us singles these days. The entire landscape of meeting people, how to date and the meaning of commitment is different for everyone. And adding to the complexities are navigating email, texting, social media and the actual in-person interaction. Half of America is single. The way people seek and find love has …

I never wanted to get married again. At least that’s what I told myself. Past hurts were still piercing my heart. One unhealthy relationship after another, a bad marriage and then a divorce had me looking for love in all the wrong places. I felt like a failure. This wasn’t how it was supposed to be. After the mess I’d …

4 Ways To Defeat Low Self-Esteem

I recently read a fascinating book titled You Can Read Anyone by David J. Lieberman. It divulges some of the tactics used by government profilers to determine the behaviors and mindsets of people they interrogate. As we might presume, a person’s self-esteem plays a critical role in how he or she thinks, behaves and makes decisions. Although the book appears …

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, I had a first love, a first boyfriend. (Man, was that a long time ago!) Do you remember your first love? Wasn’t it magical? I was 19. He’d started liking me late that summer, but wisely and patiently kept his intentions hidden. I had no clue he was testing me by …
