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.

Dear Single Self

A God-Sized Love Story, Biblical Womanhood

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.

A God-Sized Love Story

There is a box of letters underneath my bed that contains bits and pieces of my heart. In this box are ten years worth of letters I wrote to my future husband. Filled with longing, dreams, and unfulfilled desires, these letters became an act of surrender and trust to the Lord. Over the years the Lord transformed these letters from being about the man my heart longed for to being a love note to my Savior. In my moments of desperate longing where I cried buckets of tears (yes, I’ve cried a lot in my lifetime), the Lord has proven to me over and over that Jesus is the only Man who will ever satisfy my heart. Most of my middle and high school years could be described as a season of waiting. Even at a young age, I longed for marriage. I craved a God-sized love story. I ached for love from a man. These longings culminated in what ended up being a full box of letters hidden beneath my bed for safe keeping.

Who Said You Have To Wait?

A God-Sized Love Story, Purpose

Frosty windows once changed my life. Rewind three years ago to December 31, 2011. At the end of each year, my mom, sister, and I look back at the previous year and thank God for what He did, as well as pray big prayers for our family for the upcoming year. This has become one […]

Frosty Windows of Grace

A God-Sized Love Story

Dancing around the room, my heart beat quickly imagining my Prince I would one day dance with. Blue tattered tutu, plastic princess heels, and hair curled from my pink sponge curlers the night before, no dream was too small for my mind to imagine. And dream I did. For years I dreamed about my future husband. […]

Friends, It is such a joy to write this post while I sit at the beach with my husband. We took a week to get away and be refreshed. This week has looked like a LOT of sleeping, laughing, resting, and enjoying the beauty of creation. Exactly what I needed to keep going with all […]

Ever since I was a little girl, I have longed to meet my prince charming. Most of you probably understand this desire. I watched about every princess movie available, imagined ridiculous, fairy-tale ways we would someday meet and even slept in a princess night gown…just in case he came to sweep me away! (a girl’s […]

A God-Sized Dream Come True

A God-Sized Love Story

Dear Single Self (& Single Friends), You are not alone. You never were and you never will be. I feel I need to repeat this, 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. God has promised to never leave you or forsake you. Never. He has promised you life that is abundant…today. (John 10:10) Your years are not wasted and your life has already begun. Don’t look ahead to what might be. (Matthew 6:33-34) Be grateful for the beauty of today. Each new moment is a gift from the Lord and is also a trust. How are you using your singleness to bring glory to your Creator?
