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.

I remember this day perfectly.  The day I allowed myself to be mad at God.  For many years, I wouldn’t be that honest.  I would show Him disappointment, fear…but anger?  It just didn’t feel right.

Business Tips

Some things happen in life that we can never truly forget. Maybe words that were spoken or actions that were taken. Things that hurt us and break us and seem impossible to ever move past. I don’t remember the first time I heard the phrase “forgive and forget,” but for as long as I can […]

It didn’t feel like kindness. It felt more like compassion. It felt like God’s breath. Buy flowers. It was a simple thought that came to me in the Trader Joe’s aisle. My heart was aching for my friend who was missing her dad on father’s day, for the grief that would surely envelop her and […]

All About Delight

So, I’m about to tell a story. I know. Courtney, your stories are always so good. I know, you’re welcome. But this particular story I’m not very proud of. And I’ve told a whopping three people until now because of my own embarrassment and sadness over the whole thing. But here goes…  A few years ago, I […]

“Be Kind & Have Courage” is a recent motto that has gotten quite popular due to a certain wonderful disney princess. How exciting to watch this big production make such a stand-out statement!
