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 Confident} New Year + New Beginnings + It was GOOD

I sit here in awe. In awe of God’s goodness & faithfulness. Last year at this time, the Delight House was a dream. Now it is daily becoming more and more of a reality. On January 2nd, 2014, we were handed the keys to this house. As exciting as it was, there were days that […]

Delight House

As I write this, I’m sitting alone in a room by a single lightbulb, sipping pumpkin coffee and listening to my family playing games, laughing and talking outside my door. It’s almost the New Year – and the first theme for Delight in 2015 is “Community.” How appropriate.  Most of us have just spent a […]

Hello dear friend. I have been MIA for a few weeks, and I am glad to be back in touch with you all. The picture below is a a simple photo of me in normal life. Taken as is, no cosmetics were used in the taking of the photo. There is something I want to […]

I clutch onto the candle, look at the glimmering lights of the tree, and I know it is what my heart needs most this Christmas, every Christmas.  His light to penetrate my dark. Sometimes that’s painful. I spent many mornings this season, in front of this little tree with God, praying like He’s my only […]


For the first time since the kids were born, this year we got to pick up a fresh Christmas tree for our home. Last year, I knew we were ready for something different this year. Dealing with the fake tree and its annual trip in and out of the attic was just getting old; as the lights […]

Culinary Arts

Slowly and carefully I walked upstairs; I tiptoed to the left and right to avoid the parts of the stairs that made creaking noises all in order to try and be quiet and get a first-glimpse of the tree on Christmas morning. It was a sight to see – all lit up and beautiful with […]

It’s that wonderful time of the year, when we are surrounded by all things glitter and shiny! I absolutely love getting fun tree or christmas light images, but I still have some favorites from last year I want to share with you too! Sometimes it can be tricky to catch that magical glow that the […]


One decision at a time…. A lot of people think life will get easier when they become a Christian. But, I really don’t think it does. If anything, life gets harder. Some of you are cringing because said that. But it’s true. When you really follow Jesus, it’s not unicorns & cotton candy.  And honestly, […]

The glimmer of my tiny Christmas tree lights shimmer and I exhale, writing this to you. We are about to celebrate the greatest of all miracles in a few short weeks – God coming to earth. It is truly a miracle, that God came down to get us. There are just some times and some […]
