We’ve all heard the verse about “Hope Deferred,” and probably identified with it… a little too well. Like, maybe camped at heartsick, homesick, wish I was dating and married already. But it wasn’t until I read the rest of the verse that I realized my hope didn’t HAVE to be deferred. Wait. What?
I pray this encourages your heart into Savoring Single with far less ups and downs, depressing days and utter disappointments. Because that’s just no way to live this once-in-a-lifetime single season.
If we’ve heard it once, we’ve heard it a hundred times. And even as annoying and cliché as we know that it is, by the very pounding of it’s frequency we can even begin to listen to it. Of this, I must caution you. Continue reading “Don’t worry! He’ll come when you least expect it.”
If you’re asking, “who’s Leah?” I’m here for you girl. You’ve probably at least heard of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob from the Old Testament of the Bible. (If not, Genesis would be a great book to read. Tons of history and grass roots of our faith in that one book! It’s a whopping 50 chapters but well worth the read.) Continue reading “Ever feel like a Leah?”
I want you to enjoy being single to the last drop, all the way ‘till the “I do.” It’s not a season of waiting, it’s a season for living. It does not have to be so. dang. hard. It really doesn’t. I promise. I’m still single and it is W A Y more enjoyable now than it ever has been. I am truly Savoring Single and I want you to, as well! Continue reading “10 Practical Ways to Enjoy Being Single”
The pale grey cinder block walls and glossy white floors that reflect harsh fluorescent lighting may very well become the framework for all this year will contain. Like coloring the edges of a coloring book before shading in the rest, our best hope is that we won’t color outside the lines. Because even in the age of messy-hair-don’t-care, no one really wants messy. Continue reading “For all you girls headed back to school”
I get it. Being a girl in this generation has been tough. It’s probably always been tough for different reasons, but being known as the fatherless generation sure seems to say a lot.
Most of us girls who had good dads could probably say we are or were a daddy’s girl at some point. Those of us who never had the opportunity, just wish we had.
There is something in us, as girls and as daughters, to want the love and affirmation of a father. Continue reading “P:13 A girl and her daddy”
I was half way through the first season of Pretty Little Liars when I caught on to the overall gist of the entire plot. I’m late to catch on, so I must admit this was a binge-watching session (after they were already on the 2nd season) and I had just watched a half-a-dozen or so episodes in a row. #helloNetflix #Guilty. Anyway. If they had just told the truth from the beginning… Continue reading “P:12 “Trendy must-have” or “so last season””
I read a great article yesterday about the television and entertainment we consume and if, as Christians, we should really be feeding on what it’s offering us. Continue reading “P:11 If Calories didn’t Count”
I have this random love of school supplies. I have to fight the urge every year not to buy them. I have no need of No. 2 pencils, crayons or College-Ruled notebooks, so I digress. Willing myself past the displays that clutter our aisles at Walmart, I feel like I’m passing by the opportunity for adventure.

“It is to your advantage to be wise. But to ignore the counsel of wisdom is to invite trouble into your life.” Proverbs 9:12
If ignoring counsel means trouble, imagine the benefit of heading it; the exact opposite of trouble! It is good for us to remember the God behind the wisdom being shared in Proverbs. We can see into His heart for us by the tools He is giving us to help direct our lives. Continue reading “P:9 More Wisdom = Less Trouble”
