Still (!!!) Single?

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?

The Secret To Contentment

Marriage, Relationships

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

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?

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. […]

A God-Sized Love Story, Dating, Family, Marriage, Sex, Singleness

This post is for those of you waiting on a husband. This is for those who feel lonely, alone, unwanted & confused over your singleness. You. Are. Not. Alone. (If you would like to read the e-book I wrote on “A God-Sized Love Story”, click here for the Kindle and here for the PDF version) Images by of Greg and I were taken by Nancy Ray Photography – the BEST photographer!) On November 17th, 2012, I committed before God and an audience of about 400 to give my life to Gregory Loius Saffles. Needless to say, at that very moment, my life changed.

Waiting: {the active pursuit of God}

A God-Sized Love Story, Biblical Womanhood, loneliness

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?
