Inspiration for the Single Heart

I have not shared some of my favorite quotes for a while. Here are some on singleness and dating that have been a blessing to me. If you are currently in this season I hope it encourages you to keep trusting God in your wait.  “Nobody is perfect. Not even that man of yours. Or…

Waiting on my love story

I know this seems old-fashion and outdated in today’s culture. And quite honestly, the idea of it scares me just a bit. But with much prayer and thought I have finally made my decision. I am going to have a prearranged marriage. Before you think I have fallen off the deep end let me explain…

From my heart to yours

I told myself that I would never write you a letter. Certainly not publicly. But then again, I also told myself I’d be married with three kids by now and obviously that’s not working out that well for me. 😉 Of course, I would rather much talk to you over some ice-cream as we watch…

When love walks away

Image via.You’ve already planned all the details to your “big day” in your head. From the dress to the colors to the decoration. As the date draws closer you get more and more excited for the day you’ve been dreaming of your whole life to finally arrive. The day you marry the man you love…

Dear single girl

I know today is your favorite day of the year. There’s nothing you look forward to more than seeing everyone confess their love to each other all over social media. That you just love walking into stores and seeing roses, chocolates and heart shaped balloons taking over the aisles. That you just love the cliché…

I may never wear a wedding dress

Last year as I was sitting around a table drinking tea and sharing what was going on in my life with my mentor she told me something that I will never forget. Something so unbelievably awful I couldn’t believe she had the nerve to utter it out loud. She said six simple, yet profound words.…

I’ve got a man…

Today is the day. The day all the dating and married women post pictures all over facebook of all the sweet things their husbands bought or did for them. The day all the young single girls are writing about how they don’t need any man in their life because they are oh-so-satisfied in Christ. The…

We Would Rather Have Ryan Gosling as Our Jesus

By Guest Blogger: Emily Sledge I used to cry myself to sleep all the time, desperately jealous of people in happy relationships. I watched friends and people on TV, and it seemed practically everyone but ME had someone. It made me a little obsessed with the movie “The Notebook,” too. Especially the rain scene – remember,…

Praying for your husband

Half a year ago I was sitting in my room grading some worksheets we had given our teens from church as homework and I came across one of my girl’s papers on which I read something that made me put everything down and just stop and think. I don’t know what question it was responding to but…

Why are you single?

When I first created this blog I decided that it would be a place where I could share what God’s been putting on my heart – whether it’s through His Word, through a book, through anything at all. But it was definitely not going to be a place for me to vent. That’s what a…

Hearts, roses, n’ chocolates day… ♥

Today is my favorite holiday of the year… after Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving, Independence Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Martin Luther King’s Day, Labor Day, President’s Day, Veteran’s Day, Columbus Day… well, you get the point. 😉 I’m sure if I wasn’t single at the moment and had roses and chocolates sitting on my desk from someone “special” I would think otherwise.…

The Husband List

People always recommend making a list of specific things to pray for in a future spouse. So a while ago I decided to come up with my specific “husband list”… it took me many days of thinking, praying, getting advice from people to come up with this list of the qualities I want in the person…
