Here’s Why You Should Stop Reading “10 Things to Do While You Wait for a Husband” Articles

I am single. I am not exactly thrilled about it but I am not unhappy about it either. Truth be told, if I could, if I had any say, I would change it today. But I only want the one God has for me. If I wanted a man, I could make that happen. I …

Restless

I finally have some down time after a very grueling ten months. The semester is over. My internships are complete. I've taken a "break" from my newspaper obligations, which will resume later this month. The Christmas and New Year bustle is behind me and my son is back in school which has given me some much …

Dear 2014…

You kicked my butt so bad some days I wanted to give up on life. There were times I thought I would never make it through but you are coming to a close and I am still here. I outlasted you. And that in itself is a reason to rejoice. Still, I hold no bitterness …

The Birthing Process

I can still vividly remember the experience of being pregnant with my son. I was young, single and un-saved and my situation was less than ideal but I was excited, nonetheless. At about six weeks in, however, the sickness started to set in  - terribly. I couldn't eat anything for the first three months. My …

The Power in Surrender

  I can do all things. I truly believe that. Give me a problem, I can solve it. Give me a challenge, I overcome it. Whatever you need, I can get it done, maybe not right away - but best believe I will find a way. And you will be impressed. I pride myself on that, …

So God Told You He Is Your Husband?

Seasons Change

I've been trying to understand where my fairly recent obsession with landscape photography came from. I grew up in the country in a small town right by the ocean. I spent my childhood playing in the bushes, making mud pies and climbing trees. Most of my mornings were spent by the ocean, with my grandmother, watching …

Single… And NOT Looking

No it doesn't mean I am closed off or bitter. Read on 🙂 My sister and I were having a conversation about me not dating. I turn everybody down. I don't give my number out, don't accept any and I pretty much stay indoors as best as I can. So she asked me why (as …

Pressure Builds Diamonds: Behind the Name – Identity and Purpose

I consider myself "borderline" feminist. (I believe in gender roles and the biblical order of Christ - Husband - Wife - Children, so that probably disqualifies me as a full fledged feminist.) I love women. I feel called to women... to love, to support and minister to them. I believe in sisterhood, equality, girl power …

‘The Vision Will Pull You Forward’

I love Morgan Freeman- both the on screen persona and the person he is behind the roles. Not that I know him personally, but his story- that is, his struggle to make it as an actor before the fame- resonates with me on a personal level. About a year and a half ago I was …
