What about when you’re alone with your boyfriend or future boyfriend?
Countless friends have recently asked me this question, and I feel as though it is such a hard battle to face and discuss. I tried my best to be understanding and transparent, and every time I prayed about this for my sweet friends, a word kept coming to my mind: boundaries.

{Be Real} “Build Your Kingdom Here”

If you’re anything like me, you know that plunging outdoor temps mean more than just piling on the sweaters and scarves; it means our skin needs some extra attention and insulation from the harsh elements too!  So as we round out the month of October, I thought I’d share some of my current favorite products […]


by: Anna Anderson Growing up, I had a very limited perception of what grace was. I thought it was for good people who called themselves christians and that it wasn’t something that applied to my life. I grew up in an environment where grace was not something I ever clearly understood and was not often […]

Confession.  I have a slight obsession with coconuts. I used to hate the taste of coconut.  But that was when the only coconut I had ever tasted was the sweetened stuff you find in the baking aisle.  Yuck.  It still makes me cringe. Now that I have discovered the major health benefits of coconuts, I […]

I was asking myself this morning, “What are some examples of true devotion to God?” So I grabbed my Bible and was led to Judges 6. Judges 6 is the story based on the calling of Gideon. I’ll give you some background information to set the stage before I go any further. During the time […]

I initially intended to feature another wonderful guest author for today’s post. I’m really trying to mix it up some in order to diversify this section of the blog. There are limitless topics on how to be successful and obviously I only have the knowledge and experience to write about a small percentage of them […]


What if I fall down? What if I fail? What if I get hurt? What if I’m not good enough? FEAR. That is what is behind all of these questions. Oh, these questions that I am all to familiar with because I ask myself them almost on a daily basis. Usually I ask myself these […]


Website// http://caitlinalexanderphotography.com Blog// http://caitlinalexanderblog.com Facebook// facebook.com/caitlinalexanderphotography ——————- Everything about Sarah and Ryan’s day was just special. Sarah and Ryan were high school sweethearts, and let me tell you, their story is simply precious. It’s always an absolute honor to be invited to be an integral part of a client’s wedding day, but Sarah and Ryan’s day left me […]

Words sting, like really sting sometimes. As an art major I have experienced several different kind of digs aimed maybe not to cut down, but they leave their marks either way. If it is not immediately recognized as intellectual, if you get so caught up in the emotion of a moment that you forget your […]

I don’t know what the weather is like where you live, but here in central Washington State, the crisp fall air has definitely arrived! I’m loving every minute!  I’m on the hunt for a new coat or two, and so I thought I’d create a style board of some current cold-weather looks I’m loving. And […]


by: Jessica Lauren Smith Why do we struggle? As believers it’s easy to become frustrated in the midst of temptations and struggles in our life because we feel like we should have everything together. We want to have these amazing lives and be the super-Christians that do everything perfectly. So why isn’t life working out? […]

Chili was a staple in my house in the fall.  Now that it is soup season (oh how I love soup), I thought I’d share my simple but amazingly tasty chili recipe.  Here’s a fun Midwestern tip: serve chili with cinnamon rolls.  They go together like peanut butter and jelly, even if you’ve never heard […]

Sometimes I become weary with life. Overwhelmed, stressed, frustrated… those are words that I frequently allow to describe my days. I think that Satan finds real pleasure in overwhelming us. There are many times when I just want to give up because I feel like a complete failure. But what a lie that is! Satan […]
