Laying A Good Foundation

It’s interesting how often the foundation of a building gets overlooked.  One walks up to the second floor of a mall and doesn’t think “I sure hope this floor holds up underneath me”.  No, one more than likely thinks, “I sure hope my hubby doesn’t mind that I buy this Coach purse” :).  Often we… Continue reading Laying A Good Foundation

CRASH

Life offers a plethora of opportunities to run into others, whether it’s from the interior of a vehicle resulting in a car-on-car accident, or from engaging in a heated argument ending in hurt feelings and mountain high levels of offenses.  Each incident proves to be a disruption in one’s day, rattle one’s emotions and upset… Continue reading CRASH

A Letter to My Single Brothers

I’m not a man so I can’t fathom the temptation to engage a beautiful, godly, woman in conversation.  To proceed with texting her, calling her, and showering her with terms of endearment (via social media or otherwise), all the while having no intention to commit to her.  I can’t possibly fathom that temptation.

But he who is married cares about the things of the world, how he may please his wife. There is a difference between a wife and a virgin. The… Continue reading Tis’ Better to be Single…Right?

When Sparing Change Hinders the Gospel

Her dirty blonde hair hung limp at her shoulders.  Baggy, dark clothes falling loosely on her frame.  With no shame or hesitancy she made her way to me.  “Can you spare $.25?  I got to get to the bus.”  She was a little jumpy but I could not attribute that to drug use…could just be… Continue reading When Sparing Change Hinders the Gospel

Looking Back

I’ve found myself reading one of my old journals lately.  It’s been interesting to say the least.  24-year-old Nicole was living at home, aching to get out on her own with plans to buy a condo somewhere near her job and 45 minutes away from her mom (mom it’s been great you supporting me after… Continue reading Looking Back
