In the beginning stages of a relationship, we need to keep an eye out for “red flags.” We may dismiss them altogether, but they help to warn or caution us. Red flags also help us identify situations that have the potential to harm us, emotionally, mentally or physically.   However, It’s not always easy when we begin to notice these red flags appearing in our relationships … It’s much easier to rationalize them away. So...

I found out why I’m still single … Apparently, you have to go outside and let people see you. I read that line on a popular meme, and it spoke to the struggle of single introverts everywhere, including myself. I affectionately refer to myself as a social introvert. I do enjoy interacting with others. Over time I have developed the skills to do this well (so well that I have a hard time convincing people that...

It’s over. Two words you never want to hear or say to the person you love most. Let’s face it: Relationships are hard work, and sometimes, despite our best efforts, they just don’t work out. Cue the nights filled with tear-soaked pillowcases, sleepless nights, swollen eyes, and huge waves of emotion that feel like they are going to swallow you whole. We’ve been there (trust us!). Your “well spring of life” has sprung a leak and...

My first time hearing the iconic song was during an episode of “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.” Uncle Phil and Will were arguing about why Ashley was out in the streets until Ashley takes the stage and breaks out in song. I remember thinking, what is respect and why is it important? How do I give it and how do I get it? Webster’s Dictionary defines it this way: “respect is a feeling of deep...

We are so blessed to have a faithful God. Whether single, married or somewhere in between, as believers in Christ we are called to be faithful to Him just the same. Given our humanity, we need God’s help to remain faithful to the Lord. God teaches us many important lessons about love and faithfulness. One powerful example can be found in the biblical story of Hosea, a prophet who God instructs to marry a prostitute...

Before they left, the father was consoling his sons as they cried, even though he himself was brushing away tears. After getting them in the car, he hugged his wife, told her he loved her, and took two steps back and said: “I’ll let you go.”   He said he’d never forget the image of her car driving away … When he couldn’t see them anymore, he walked back into his garage. He pressed the...

Dinner? Check. Movie? Been there. Dinner AND a movie? Done that. Netflix & Chill? Ummm … Does this list mirror your last few dates? C’mon guys … not that anything is wrong with dinner and a movie, but after you’ve done these a few zillion times, don’t you wish there were other activities you and bae could enjoy together? Now I might be projecting here, but I’m willing to bet that she would love to be surprised...

Have you ever found yourself stuck in a relationship that you knew you should not have been in? All the signs in the relationship point to a dead end, but for some reason you just can’t work up the courage to get out of the relationship. It is extremely vital that you get out! Run for your life and your future! Breaking up is probably one of the hardest things in life to do. Often,...

The manufacturer of a product knows the purpose of the product and has written the manual for the consumer to also understand its purpose and various functions.  Some people are patient to read the full manual before usage, but many hardly read the manual in its entirety. God our creator knows our purpose and everything that we need to excel in life is in the Bible. The word of God helps us to define our...

I could hardly believe that it was my turn to say “yes to the dress”! It all really didn’t hit me until I flew back home after the engagement to California and began to think of all of the natural and spiritual things that needed to be done in order for our engagement season to be fruitful. Yes, you have to pick a date for the wedding, send out invitations, select your bridal party, etc....
