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.

Light room tricks by guest blogger Emily M. { Be Savvy }

Ladies, It has been so heavy on my heart to talk about settling in relationships and how good GODLY men still do exist out there in the world overpowering with a bunch of bozos. I just am going to post a few things on my heart and that I have taken into serious consideration when […]

I said it out loud, just this week. “I just want to get this show on the road already.” Hurry the process – yes, that’s what I said I wanted to do. But what my heart really knew, down deep…was that I just wanted to be out of the in between. It’s in between places […]

It was an ordinary summer afternoon, and I was fourteen years old. I don’t remember anything special or significant about the day. I don’t remember ​what the weather was like​ or what I was wearing. I don’t remember what my favorite song was​,​ or which boy I thought was cute at the time. But I do remember about […]

It was a beautiful day for a drive. You know, the kind of day where the windows are down, the breeze is rolling in, and sunshine is gracing down from heaven. I left the house in a hurry that day, running a little behind schedule. But now that I was in the car, I exhaled, […]

Love is patient.   I’ve heard this a million and one times in my lifetime, good ol’ 1 Corinthians 13. I remember being 8 years old, sitting in my childhood home in Mississippi, coming up with a melody to help memorize the verse so that I could recite it at school the next day. I […]

Listening to the birds chirp, astounded by flowers blossoming all around, I revel in its beauty. And I almost forget. I almost forget how last week I stood, looking out the window across a row of maple trees, scanning it for any signs of spring. I looked away, dejected, asking how could this be? It’s […]

When I first thought about writing about patience, I didn’t understand how it was too different from last month’s theme, peace. But it is.
