  I think a lot of this will apply even with unbelieving men – but I especially want to focus on how we can handle turning down true Christian men who are interested in us. This is a BIG issue. It is a sensitive and painful one – on both sides – but especially for […]

  This is the last question that this precious single sister in Christ asked me: 3. When does it switch? Is there a moment when you feel slightly more secure and able to “relax” in the security of your relationship? My man is a great guy but I do wonder what it would be like […]

AN ACQUAINTANCE, COWORKER, CLASSMATE, or STRANGER: If a guy you are not even in a relationship with is asking you for naked pictures or casual sex, here are my thoughts: Yes, we can treat men (and women) with respect, honor, dignity, grace, and the love of God.

My precious sisters in Christ, MANY, MANY of you are dating or engaged to men who are unbelievers.  I know that you love your man.  I know you want to see him come to Christ.  Maybe he is even promising you that he will consider Christ “later” or that he will go to church with […]

A Christian husband, Purple Tortoise. shares his perspective, his wisdom and his story.
