WARNING…words of brutal honesty will follow this disclaimer. If you’re one of those people that refuses to confront the difficulties of choosing a life of faith in Jesus, this article probably isn’t for you.  If you’re someone who believes that choosing the life of a Christian is all John 10:10 abundance, without confusion and hard pressing strikes mentioned in 2 Corinthians chapter 4…brace yourself, please, because the truth is…challenges are coming. BUT… That isn’t the...

Early this week, on Monday morning, Parisians and visitors from around the globe alike watched in horror as the spire of the Notre Dame, one of the world’s most well-known cathedrals, collapsed into the building as flames engulfed its entirety. If you had seen any of the videos circulating social media or the news, you know that it looked like a scene from “The Day After Tomorrow” or “World War Z.” It was apocalyptic. Although...

After seeing Jamal Miller’s Monday Motivation segment, within The One University’s program, entitled, “It ain’t supposed to feel good …” I was deeply inspired by two key points. First, during this December 3, 2018 Facebook Live broadcast, Jamal introduced the innovative and practical concept of taking inventory to assess what we need for every area of our lives to position ourselves for God’s plans. Secondly, he discussed the importance of not falling for the enemy’s attempts...

Love is a beautiful thing. People love a person, a particular meal, a musician, a destination, etc. Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines ‘love’ as warm attachment, enthusiasm, or devotion; the object of attachment, devotion, or admiration.    In our society, the word love is used so casually it can be challenging to discern true love and how it translates into God’s love for us as believers. Society can love something one minute and despise it the next. On...

Booker T. Washington said, “Those who are happiest are those who do the most for others.” Giving, and specifically, tithing, is very fundamental to the Christian faith. Many Christians want to know, what is a tithe and how much they should exactly be giving? Well, let’s talk about it! First, let’s define what a tithe actually is. Tithing in the Bible is the first 10% of your income and is supposed to represent the first...

God has called us all to be students of his Word. Unfortunately, we see in the church that zeal and passion for God’s Word is depreciating — people are not applying the Word of God to their lives and walking in it. We believe that God desires for all of us to not just be hearers of his Word, but diligent seekers and powerful demonstrators of it. God’s Word is applicable to both men and...

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...

Do you know that the decisions you make today will affect your future as well as the future of your offspring? This does not just relate to married couples, but to the engaged and unmarried as well. I am learning on a whole new level the power of prayer and planning! Prayer and planning has been key for me as a married woman (just as it was key for me as a single woman!). Before I...

How often do we hear about a virtuous woman? All of the time, right? But, how often do we hear of a virtuous man? Why is it a rarity?  We’re here to make the claim that virtue is not just for women. It’s for men, too, and we see what a virtuous man looks like in reading Psalm 112: “Praise the Lord!  Blessed is the man who fears the Lord, who greatly delights in his commandments!...

After five years of marriage and birthing a beautiful daughter, I often think that there were so many more areas I could have served in while I was single. I enjoyed my single season, especially right before my husband came! I was literally living my best life, going to school, enjoying friendships with men and women alike, serving in a number of ministries, and just having fun. But I also remember countless Saturdays of having...
