This Is Where I Stand

You can call my choices “safe,” and I won’t argue. But, that isn’t what I am going for. I want my choices to honor God. I remember a choice I had to make when I was nineteen; I sought the counsel of a couple of friends. They were not friends that I saw or visited... Continue Reading →

I’m Not Afraid

After last week’s blog, a friend wanted to be sure that fear was not my true motivation for declining the man who wanted to go out with me. I gave this some thought. My conclusion: I am not afraid. When I was young, Christian men never showed any real interest in me. So, I stupidly entertained the... Continue Reading →

I Am Not Playing Hard To Get

Through all my years of singleness, I have received little attention from the opposite sex. But if you think that has made me desperate, you are mistaken. Last week this was put to the test when something new happened. In a public place, a man I didn’t know struck up a conversation with me. We talked, he... Continue Reading →

I imagined enjoying the mornings outside, reading... Continue Reading →

God Is My Matchmaker, Part I

I’m in full vacation-count-down mode for an upcoming trip to Montana with my sister. Some of my co-workers, Christians whom I count as friends, have begun a mantra of “Maybe you’ll meet a cowboy!” My last big vacation was to Hawaii, and prior to that trip, there was similar talk of me “meeting” a man....

Identity Crisis: Resolved

The struggle of my thirties has been trying to figure out the answer to the pesky existential questions of life. Who am I? What am I supposed to do? What am I supposed to be? I had always identified myself as a future wife and mother. I saw myself staying at home, raising children, cooking,... Continue Reading →
