After being so busy with the most recent blog launch, I turned my phone off to recharge and have a phone-less birthday. No sooner had I turned it on again that a friend called. He was adamant that I was ‘The One’ for him and that he wanted to marry me. I politely pointed out […]

Spiritual Compatibility: 3 Signs You're Marrying The Wrong Person

Grace

A few months ago, I reluctantly began reading a book entitled Discovering The Mind of a Woman by Ken Nair. The reasons why I started reading this book escape me; it may have had something to do with the fact that when it came to my understanding of how women think, I was just about […]

“Take your time, but don’t waste your time,” his friend advised me following a call I’d arranged to quiz them about his character. The advice centred on the assumption that our potential relationship was purposeful (courtship), not casual (dating). The former has marriage as the goal from the outset, whereas the latter does not; therefore, […]

Someone recently asked me “can you see yourself marrying me?”… and for some reason I had no idea how to answer that. Not because I didn’t want to marry him, but because for a split second I wondered why marriage was on the cards before a relationship had even begun. Except that’s precisely the mindset […]

Failing in Love is a book by Juliette Sweeney which explores how failed relationships can be the springboard for successful ones later on. At just 60 pages it’s a quick read, but the reflection questions give you the opportunity to delve deeper into how you can apply what you’ve read to your own life. The […]

I remember being over-familiar with the opposite sex whilst in a relationship and, understandably, my significant other wasn’t too impressed. In a later relationship, I happened to be on the receiving end and it made me feel uneasy. In both cases, neither of us had done anything particularly bad. Nevertheless, it didn’t stop the other […]

A while ago, a friend of mine and I were talking  and she mentioned the fact that singleness is always viewed as a temporary stop. Yes, people are encouraged to enjoy this ‘season’ but it’s meant to be just that: a season. Those who have the ‘misfortune’ of languishing in it are invariably pitied. “What […]

Tokens of Love by Brandon and Sheretta Taylor was one of my favourite reads from 2019! I really enjoyed journeying through the love stories of the Bible. I don’t usually read devotionals, but I’ve been blessed by the YouTube ministry of this couple and I wanted to read what God had put on their heart. […]

My friend and I always find it funny that guys actually thought we were attractive during puberty i.e. before the ‘glow up.’ Astonishingly, they did. So much so that we ended up in relationships. However, the sixteen-year-old version of me certainly had no business being anyone’s girlfriend… “Promise me, O women of Jerusalem, not to […]

Almost everyone is familiar with The Proverbs 31 Woman – but what’s the male equivalent? In all my years of churchgoing, I can’t say I’ve ever heard men encouraged to embody a specific passage in the way women are. Yes, the Proverbs 31 characteristics are also applicable to men; however, when you’re selecting a potential […]
