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, […]

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 […]

God brought something to the forefront of my mind recently that I often forget: I am already married. It’s a truth that applies to […]

At one point or another, you’ve probably been confronted by an angry parent or guardian demanding to know why you’ve done something silly. To which you mistakenly replied ‘because they said so.’ However, such a response probably evoked more anger, and an exaggerated comparison along the lines: ‘if they said jump into a fire would you do […]

As one of the five senses, your eyes take in a lot of information. We look at a lot of things on a daily basis, but there’s one person we should be looking at differently to the rest (in microscopic detail if possible). Looking is Contextual “Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our […]

Looking Unto Jesus

I was at a wedding a while ago, where the minister encouraged the couple to remember: if they have children, they were a couple before they had children. Similarly some of you might benefit from being reminded that: you were a Christian before you became a boyfriend/girlfriend… Christian In Name & Nature “If then you were raised with Christ, seek […]

Although I wouldn’t want to be single forever, I also hate being in a relationship because of how fragile they can be. Romantic novels and fairy tales seem to portray relationships in terms of passion and excitement. However, human beings lie at the core. Human beings with feelings. Feelings capable of experiencing hurt, grief, and […]
