The temperature outside has dropped. Indoor activities are in full effect. Warm and cozy blankets have been removed from our closets.  It’s cuffing season! Everyone is looking for someone to tie down and spend the cooler months with indoors. This is the time that we often get to visit with family and old friends, and the age-old question, “Are you still single?” resurfaces. This question is coupled with the opportunity to scrutinize our lack of...

You’re married! Welcome to the other side of “I do”…the unchartered land that lies beyond the wedding day. The place where strengths are magnified and weaknesses are minimized…the place where dreams are realized and victories are inevitable. But WAIT!!! This is not at all what was expected — this land is FOREIGN — somehow the journey detoured on the other side of “I do.” So when did things change…what is my role… What exactly am...

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...

There is a word that brings fear into the hearts of many women … Some women even go so far as to avoid relationships and marriage because of it. The word is submission. You may have wanted to skip reading on this topic because it’s so controversial. Let’s see how submission should be defined in marriage. According to dictionary.com, the word submit is “to accept or yield to a superior force or to the authority...

Sad, but true: I once had a boyfriend who told me if Jesus came back, he would just hold onto me to get into heaven. I almost think he was serious. That should’ve been a red flag. But that’s a story for another time. If it were that easy, we’d all live however we wanted and when the trumpet sounded, frantically search for the most sanctified-looking person in the vicinity like a game of eternal...

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...

Backtrack a few years: I’m hanging with my boyfriend (who is now my husband) watching the movie “Two Can Play That Game” and he blurts out, “women may know how to commit but men love better!” Immediately the sista-girl in me rose up and in my head I said, “Oh NO he didn’t just say that. I hope he doesn’t really believe that.” Outwardly my face said it all, as I stared at him with a...

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...
