Be Devoted to Wherever God Has Placed You

Whatever our past, however we have been living and wherever we think we may be headed, we can change our outlook and our future from one of individualism and survival and to one of great anticipation and abundance.

The Single Life: Staying Sunny on Cloudy Days

There's really no getting around it: weather affects our mood. Personally, I love a misty, grey day. But others perk up the moment the sun peeks from behind a cloud. One way or another, we're all—to some extent—impacted by the conditions around us.

The Men in Christ's Life: Peter

I relate not only to Peter's zeal for drawing closer to Christ, the desire to serve him, the desire to make things right and to motivate people, but also to his desire to be an example. Those around Peter saw not only his successes, but also his failures. And through these experiences, they could learn and grow.

Waiting for God’s "Immeasurably More"

Lori was choosing to stay in a dating relationship that was clearly unhealthy and unsafe. I knew God had more in store for Lori. But Lori apparently didn't believe that...

Life As a Puzzle

Most people attack a puzzle by finding all of the pieces that have straight edges, forming the boundary of the puzzle and filling in the middle trying to match the picture. Many of us approach life in the same way, or at least try to.

When the Expected Arrives - Part 4

It was in the midst of processing and writing about singleness that I encountered the one for whom my heart has longed. It seemed I had always known her—but not by name. I had always loved her—but from afar.

The Single Life: Showing Souper Hospitality

I don't know about you, but I love having people over to my place for dinner on a regular basis. It's the best way I know to make sure my home stays really clean, and there's a sense of satisfaction in bringing people together for good food and conversation. But there's another reason to host social gatherings.

How to Attract the Right Mate

Like birds, people don’t literally perch themselves on a high point and “call” out to find mates. But each person does have a unique mating call that will determine what kind of person he/she will attract.

When the Expected Arrives - Part 3

When the expected arrives, we dare not forget that it is He that “led us through the vast and dreadful desert.” We praise the Lord—or we forget Him. It is a simple formula: praise the Lord “otherwise” we will forget Him and all that He has done for us.

When the Expected Arrives - Part 2

There is the delicate balance between hope and practicality. There is the reality of delay. There is the practical difficulty of finding someone to marry, and then there is the surprising awakening to a dream-when the expected arrives.

The Single Life: Take Your Brain Back to School

Did you know you can wake up your brain? That’s right. The mental equivalent of a venti double-shot might be almost anything from playing Wii® to a walk in the woods—but one of the best “wake up” tools is to take your brain back to school.

When the Expected Arrives - Part 1

The expected is that person who has been the object of our desire—a mere concept, the personification of our dreams and simply wife or husband. The expected can become what he or she should never be—an idol—or a smaller God.

The Men in Christ's Life: The Calling of Matthew

Jesus always called His disciples one by one. Matthew was a tax collector—not anyone’s favorite type of person by a long shot. Who wanted to be friends with someone who could financially ruin you? No one wanted to be around or befriend people like this—except Jesus.

Don't Lose Heart

Oftentimes, we aren’t able to comprehend how the Lord is working and why. However, just because God does not work according to how we think doesn’t mean He does not hear our prayers nor care about our situations.
