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...

“No man will ever want me, and I’m a single mom.” “No man will ever be good enough for my child, other than his father.” Does this sound familiar? If we are honest with ourselves, these thoughts have crossed our minds as single mothers. Can we tell you about the story of Mary and Joseph, the parents of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ? No, not the story of ‘Mary had a little lamb,’ but...

“I want your will, Lord!” How many times have we said that? Sometimes we think we are sure that we want God’s will to be done … … until we find ourselves trying to help him along the way. Sometimes we think we want God’s will. But, let us be honest here, what if God’s will is not what we want? We ask that His will be done in this season. What if His will is...

At some point we have all made these wonderful plans of where we’d all be in ten years post high school or college. And, it’s only proven unsuccessful, as we often look at where we are now and realize that our lives are nothing as we had planned so many years ago. For me — and maybe your dreams were similar — I imagined being married with children, living in a huge house etc. with a...

“As water reflects the face, so one’s life reflects the heart.” Proverbs 27:19 Have you ever looked down into a clean pool or clear waters to see your reflection? I can recall helping my sister and her family move into their new home last summer. Outside their home sat a filthy pool, trashed by the previous owners. When you looked down into it, it was so dirty that all you could see floating in the...

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...

Alright, gentlemen, have a seat for just a moment, as this one is for the ladies! We ask Dr. Faith Wokoma, a trusted Christian expert, how women can best prepare to be pursued by a man looking to marry. Women always say “He is supposed to find me.” But will you be ready when he does? It’s the man’s job to pursue, but your job is to be in a position to be pursued and...

A lot of us have read — or at least heard — the story of Ruth. She comes up a lot as an example for the ways in which single women should remain faithful in the waiting for our husbands. Ruth had been found by her husband, Boaz, and was given much favor from him. Ruth’s mother-in-law, and a relative to Boaz, Naomi, knew the Jewish custom and instructed Ruth to lay at Boaz’ feet...

Whether you’re in your 20s or 30s (or 40s, or 50s …), the concept of marriage is all around you and staring you right in the face. But there are some very important keys that we need to be mindful of when on the brink of, frankly, the most important decision you’ll ever make outside of your commitment to Jesus Christ. And rather than take you through all of the things you “should look for”...
