    Love: What Is It Really?

    I am so excited to tell you guys about my new and improved book available on Kindle for only $6.99! Do you know how to love? Do you want to improve your relationships? For years I have been fascinated by the concept of love. Not the worldly principle of love like romance or sex, but rather God’s view of love. Love is one of the most talked about subjects in the world. Almost every song, movie, and television show are about or include love. One thing I’ve learned over the years, was that what God says about love and what society says about love are two very different things. I’ve…

    A Few Thoughts

    I know I already posted today and this post won’t be long, I just wanted to share some thoughts and things I learned just this morning while I was volunteering. Justin and I have been praying for a very long time for God to bless our finances. We need a financial miracle, to be perfectly honest, and we’ve been praying for 9 months and don’t really seem to have had any answers. I was beginning to think that maybe God wasn’t listening to my prayers anymore. But then, just today, He reminded me that He is still listening and He is always faithful. It was a small thing, but it…

    Through God’s Eyes

    When my mom was raising me she asked God to help her see through my eyes. To this day she says that it made her a better mom. I believe we need to ask God the same for our husbands. We need to ask Him to help us see through our husband’s eyes. But we also need to ask God to help us see through His eyes. Not only should we learn to see ourselves as God sees us, but we need to see our husbands as God sees them. It’s easy to find faults in our husbands, to see only the things they do wrong. But we need to…

    Monday’s Encouragement: God Loves You

    Today I just want to give you this incredibly important encouragement: God loves you! No matter what you’ve done, who you are, where you’ve been, God loves you. There is nothing on earth that you could do to make God not love you. God is love. He is not about rules and regulations. When we truly love God, we want to please Him. But all God wants is for us to love Him and have a personal relationship with Him through Jesus. God loves you! If you’ve killed someone – God still loves you. If you’ve had an affair – God still loves you. If you’ve lied – God still…

    The Sins from Pride

    Pride can be a huge problem in any society, Christian or non-Christian, and I believe the sins from pride are something we all struggle with at some time or another. I’m going to continue my series on sin today with three sins: arrogance, boastfulness, and people without love. I believe all three stem from pride. Let me just remind you guys that these posts are for Christians, those who claim to follow Jesus and believe in God’s Word (the Bible). This is not for non-Christians because I would never try to hold them to the standards of our faith. So, before I break this down, what is pride? The dictionary…

    Judging Others

    When reading my last post “A Godless Society” you may have noticed that I was getting rather heated on the subject of judgment. That’s because it is a topic of which I am very passionate and I get emotional when talking or writing about it. There are only a handful of things in life that make me feel passionate – marriage is one, but judgment is another. You see, I think Christians are the most judgmental group of people ever in existence. We know that Jesus is the only way and that God’s Word is true – and that’s great! But then we like to shove those truths down the…

    Love Always Perseveres

    We’re almost done with my series on love and I’m excited to start writing my book again about this subject! I can’t wait to get more in-depth. But, in the meantime, we’re going to continue with this series today on 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 with “Love always perseveres.” First, what does it mean to persevere? Well, the dictionary defines it as to “continue in a course of action even in the face of difficulty or with little or no prospect of success.” That sounds like many of our lives, doesn’t it? My first thought when I read that was, “Do we even have a choice? Don’t we have to persevere?” But…

    Love Always Hopes

    Today I am continuing my series on love based off 1 Corinthians 13:4-8. And I want to talk about hope. Hope is a vital part of any life, Christian or non-Christian, because without hope we give up on life. People who commit suicide have lost all hope. But God wants us to live each day filled with hope and if we want to learn to walk in love, we have to learn how to get and keep hope in our lives no matter what trials or storms come. Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long. (Psalm…
