We live in a generation where courtship turns into marriage within 6 months or less. Because of that, I was often asked, “ What’s taking him so long?” Besides that being a question from him, it made me uncomfortable that people were bothered by our relationship status more than we were. Newly engaged, I don’t regret a minute spend being his girlfriend, and here’s why: 1. Divorce is REAL! I’ve witnessed young people rush into...

I recently, just finished pre-martial counseling with my soon-to-be husband. I must say, that it was eye opening on so many levels. One of the things that I discovered, is that my expectations of my soon -to-be husband was based on my past experiences. My expectations of him would have set us up to fail. I am writing this blog to inspire men and women to seek counseling long before you say, “I Do.” Believe...

Ready for a bold statement? We are a society that likes the chase more than the catch. Please know this is a general statement, and that it doesn’t apply to everyone. But in my experiences, we seem to be a group of people that quite often is looking for ‘the next best thing’ and once we have that…we want something better. The benefit of this is that it can translate to having high standards and...

In today’s society, it seems premarital counseling is often replaced with a “trial run” as couples are choosing to cohabit more and are pushing marriage off.  With couples getting married later or for those that do not have a strong faith connection, many feel they know what they need to know and are okay with bypassing counseling. However, here are some values of premarital counseling you may want to consider:   Pre-marital counseling helps to...

Recently, I was asked if my husband I were celibate before marriage and if so, how? My response: “yes and one word – boundaries!” Before I met my husband I made up in my mind I wasn’t going to make the same mistake for a third time and I was determined to remain faithful to God and honor Him with not only my life but my body. “Do you not know that your bodies are...

My husband and I look back to our wedding with fond memories. We cut costs in many areas and managed to spend less than $9k on our big day, in comparison to the $20k that the average American spends. We are by no means “ballin,'” so paying for quality vendors was hard for us to stomach. In retrospect, here are the areas that we’ve found worth paying the extra buck for: 1. High-level Photographer/Videographer A...

Nearly a decade ago, my heart took a beating when the guy I was in a relationship with told me his feelings had changed and that he was dating someone else. I was sure I had done everything I thought I was supposed to do to avoid this kind of result- I was pursuing God above all else, I’d been prayerful, I’d waited for confirmations before moving forward, I made it clear it needed to...

Years ago, when I was younger (too young), I was in a relationship with a girl of a different faith. Despite our different beliefs, we got along wonderfully. We made one another laugh, we encouraged each other when we were down, and we left God completely out of the relationship. On a side note, “missionary dating” is not a thing. It is a distraction and an excuse for you to suppress the Holy Spirit. You...
