#LonelySeasons. Why Scrolling on Social Media Won’t Help.

Ever feel isolated, and lonely every now and then? I totally do. Especially when I was dating long distance (can I get a amen!). Sometimes we can find ourselves trying to turn to social media to fill us up, but it never actually does. And you know what? That's what it is created to do.... Continue Reading →

Selfish Christianity.

Can I be real? Like really real? I was a selfish Christian for way too long. Courtship and marriage fixed that area real quick. There is no possible way to be involved in positive, thriving, deep relationships with other people and continue to be self absorbed. Now, I would have said I was so giving,... Continue Reading →

The Second Wife: Part II (And other Thoughts On Marriage)

Welp, after the whole "yeah I'm the second wife...[or whatever]," conundrum (linked here) with Jane. I decided to look at what the Bible says about marriage. Especially, polygamous marriage...marriages. Note: Just because God allowed men to marry more than one wife in the Bible, does not mean that it pleases God, or that God approves of it....

Rainy Season Blues: Life Disruptions

Today I am stuck inside, and if anyone knows me, they know that I like to be outdoors. I enjoy being out and feeling productive. So this move to West Africa has been challenging in the sense that, very little productivity happens (anywhere) in our town when it rains heavily.  I'm talking no electricity, the...

Basically “Good People”

I was reading Luke 18:18-30, this passage deals with a rich ruler that comes to Jesus and basically tells Jesus that he, the rich ruler, is sinless. He comes to Jesus talking about how he's kept all the commandments since he was young, and he tells Jesus how he (the rich ruler) was basically a "good... Continue Reading →

Tips for Surviving Long Distance

This afternoon my hubby and I heard a podcast about how couples who meet online tend to do just as well as couples who first meet in person. With the rise of dating apps people are just meeting and staying connected differently. It's not a bad or good thing, it's just...different. Although Evans and I... Continue Reading →

Complete joy…

Life is hard. Let's just clear the air and say it. Yes...people try to smoothe over that very important fact when we are children. We spend our childhoods wanting to be adults, and then when we get here we want to go back! Maybe it's strange, but I kind of find it comforting that life... Continue Reading →

Hearing God’s Voice for BIG Decisions

Follower of Jesus= Letting go of your life and trusting God to lead you. That means constantly living a life where you surrender EVERYTHING to Him, "God what do you want me to study, what do you want me to do for a living, God do you want me to get married? Who is your best... Continue Reading →

Thoughts on Going from Long Distance to Marriage…

Yes, we were Long Distance. And yes, our marriage is wonderful! I think people don't realize that long distance couples actually do know each other really, really, well. Yes, there are quirks and little things to figure out like who cleans the toilet lol. But going from (long term) long distance dating, to marriage has... Continue Reading →

Days of Our Life.

I grew up watching the popular t.v. soap opera "Days of Our Lives." This show was full of drama... mainly surrounding love and romantic relationships. There was always an unrequited love, love affair, or love triangle happening in the show. There were always broken marriage vows, and secrets needing to be revealed. Unknowingly, I was taking...

Never Give Up

I met a woman named Luz yesterday. I walked into her little bakery a little downcast, but when I entered I immediately saw a bible on a hardwood table near the door. I was ordering a wedding cake, but I didn't have the money for the cake. I walked into the small bakery on faith. I'd never heard... Continue Reading →

“The Pillar That Holds My Life”

This morning I woke up with a song in my spirit. There is a worship song that people sing at my church in Ghana, "You are the pillar that holds my life, Jesus you are the pillar that holds my life..." I woke up singing this little tune today. This song talks about the trustworthy... Continue Reading →

He’s Bigger Than Your Problems

Last night I was mesmerized by the shadows in my room. They were caused by the dim flash-light on my phone shining in the darkness. As I watched the shadows of my face and hand as I was writing, I was amazed by how much bigger the shadow of my hand seemed than it actually... Continue Reading →

God Gave Them Up…

My heart has been grieving lately. Many of the people that I grew up with as a child have given themselves over to dishonorable passions (Romans 1:26). These friends were sitting in the presence of God in church, but now God's presence doesn't seem to be inside of them. God's word says that we will know... Continue Reading →
