Accountability

I was scrolling through Instagram the other day, mindlessly perusing. Suddenly, this adorable girl posted this insanely cute sweater that I really liked. As I paused to read her caption, I was immediately overwhelmed by a need to buy the sweater. Never mind that I have dozens of warm, cute, well-fitting sweaters in my closet. […]

“You Shouldn’t Judge.” Once upon a couple of years ago, there was a wildly popular book written by a self-professed Christian author. It was released by a Christian publishing house and marketed on Christian platforms and websites. It was a fairy tale come true. Crushing it at the top of The New York Times Best […]

Think Before You Speak My thumb hovered over the Reply button. I had been watching a discussion play out on Facebook, and I had strong feelings about the topic. I was becoming more and more agitated internally as I read opinions that were swerving away from truth and into dangerous, murky territory. Verse after verse […]

More than Entertainment Streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime are a delightful convenience.

Behind Closed Doors-Boundaries While Dating-Well-Watered Women | Going into college, I thought wearing my little pink purity ring would be easy. I had decided not to have sex until I was married and I thought that was enough. It wasn’t until my first relationship that I realized purity is so much more than not having sex.

a promise kept My dad gave me a promise ring when I turned thirteen. It was a little pink stone on a silver band that represented a promise to wait for my future husband, to stay pure until my wedding day. It was easy to put the ring on when he first gave it to […]
