July 31, 2015 by

Shaunti Feldhahn is one of my favorite authors. She is a social researcher and Christian author who does large scale, statistically accurate surveys of men and women to discover how we think and relate to each other. What a blessing to the Body of Christ! Her book, “For Women Only,” was the book that most […]

(Note – I am assuming that you are seeking to live wholeheartedly for Christ and that you would only date/court a man who wants to submit his life fully to Christ.)   Blessing a man you love is really pretty simple – they don’t ask for a lot, honestly.  But this does require the power […]

Some of you are considering marrying a man who believes he has a calling from God to be a pastor, a minister, a missionary, or something similar. I believe that extra care and prayer is wise as you prepare for such a venture. There will be additional challenges that other couples may not face. Of […]

When You Are Not Interested in a Man Who Is Interested in You

  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 […]

Our daughter and I watched a show with a cat behaviorist, Jackson Galaxy, together last week. The cat owner was a famous young woman who often tweeted about her cat and used some dreadful names for him in her tweets. Galaxy said something so profound: Words have power. What you speak becomes your reality. He […]

I think that is pretty counterintuitive to a lot of us as women, because many of us get married because we DON’T want to have space. We want constant emotional/spiritual/verbal connection. […]
