What do I do if I'm crushing on my bf? 

What do I do when I’m crushing on my best friend? 

It happens all the time! One minute you’re just friends, goofing around, and the next minute it’s like you’re seeing him or her for the first time. (For me it was always: “Those eyes! How have I never noticed those eyes before?!”) 

I’m a huge fan of having good friends of the opposite gender. I think it adds much perspective on life, and helps us learn more about ourselves. But these friendships do come with this difficulty: 

It’s really easy to start to…

How far is too far? 

Hey friends! 

Have you ever wondered, “Hmm…I know the Bible says not to have sex before I get married…but it doesn’t give a list of written guidelines for exactly how far it’s okay to go with my significant other. So how far is too far?” 

My husband and I wondered the same thing many times. Here are some of the questions we asked ourselves that helped us figure out what boundaries to set in our relationship — and the reason we rephrased the “how far is too far” question to something else entirely…

How do I know if someone is THE ONE? 



That question tormented me all through high school…and college…and my twenties. 

  • “What if I miss him?” 
  • “What if I marry the wrong person?” 
  • “What if I never meet ‘the one’?” 

And then it would all come back around to: “How do I know if someone is ‘the one’?” 

I’m not even going to pretend to know the answer to that question. I may be married, but that “knowing” still feels very much a mystery. 

However, I do want to share the things that made me feel…

Where have all the single guys gone? 

This morning I heard a REALLY AWESOME message on dating. The pastor asked the single girls in the church about dating, and the girls asked, "Where have all the single guys gone, and why won't they ask us out?" When the pastor asked the church's single guys about dating, they said, "When we ask out a girl, she panics and says no."

Which made me ask (after I finished laughing): Why do all the single guys seem to be missing? 

Growing up, as I was looking for this mysterious person called "the one," I…

Giving God the Glory in Your Love Story (guest post) 

Let me introduce to you a new friend. I met up with Jen in a Cheesecake Factory during tour earlier this year. Hearing a little bit of her story, and the life that bubbles out of her, I asked her to write part of her story as a resource to encourage any of you who are single right now! 

Let me let you in on a (now) typical morning in my house.

I begin writing to you before the sun is up, with kids music playing on my iPhone, a telling patch of spit-up on my sweater, and more than likely some noticeable…
