A God-Sized Love Story

When February 14th rolls around each year, chocolate hearts and fragrant flowers promise us a day full of warm and fuzzy feelings. Cheesy cards and red roses fill the stores, reminding us all that love is in the air (or at least it should be). And while a day spent eating candy and passing out […]

July 5, 2006 “To the one God made for me, I have spent so much time praying for you! Ever since I was a child I dreamed of my Prince and I know that you are more than I could have ever dreamed of! I have waited so long, and have kept every bit of […]

For most of my life I dreaded Valentine’s Day. It was a day that highlighted my lack. Lack of a boyfriend. Lack of pursuit. Lack of flowers, chocolate, and teddy bears. Lack of a date. Lack of someone to hold my hand. I spent a lot of Valentine’s Days at home, avoiding going out and […]

I remember sitting in my ninth grade Sunday school class hearing about peer pressure. The example was someone standing on a chair trying to pull another friend up onto the chair with them. No matter how hard she tried, it was much easier for the friend on the ground to pull the friend off the […]

just a phase I’ve been writing this blog post in my head for several months now. It all started with a conversation with my friend Chelsie in her classroom. We were talking about our friends that were married, engaged, and single. We were talking about what it means to be a single female in our […]

What if you are given everything you ever asked for, but you find it is not enough? What if our belief that getting to the next thing will make us happy is really just a misunderstanding of the freedom we’re offered in Christ? 

As Father’s Day comes up, I wanted to share some encouragement from my husband and me to you. Last year we launched the men’s Reflections Journal, a 60-day quiet time journal, that encourages men to open their Bibles and study Scripture. 

Dear Single Self (& Single Friends), You are not alone. I feel I need to repeat this so it sinks into your heart, you are not alone. In the world of singleness it is easy to feel, well, singled out. Kind of like you are wearing a scarlet letter that say available and alone. You may feel lonely and you may feel hopeless, but don’t allow feelings to direct your steps.

February 14th is a day that is dreaded by many women, both married and single. The glory placed on the materialism of the day often overshadows the beauty of deep, abiding, perfect love. Stores are filled to overflow with chocolates and flowers and the waits at restaurants is doubled. For 22 years of my life I never had a Valentine (other than my sweet dad who took on that role). I never received the fancy chocolates, never was surprised with a dozen roses, and never was taken out on a Valentine’s Day date.

Could it be that this loneliness that lingers in our hearts is meant to point us to the only One who can fill us and meet every need for companionship, joy, hope, and peace?
