Dear Ladies: Guard His Heart
Beloved, Let Him Go
We hear a lot about how we ladies should guard our hearts and we tell men a lot to guard women, but how often do we think about guarding the hearts of guys? I know we tend to have general boundaries, yet I think now would be a good time to remember to set our […]
It’s Christmas and Everything Seems Dark
Just a little confession: I am in no way an expert at this. I have loved and I have lost and I have spent months and years in an emotional limbo, hopelessly stuck in a place I don't even think I want to move on from because it's the only place I can still find […]

The World Is Hurting And I Don’t Know What To Do About It
Take a long look in the mirror right now and tell me what you see. Hips too thin, waist too fat, arms too flabby. Look closer. Tell me what you see. Eyes too far apart, nose too flat, acne scars too deep. Closer. Look deeper. Don’t you see what I see? There, right there, swimming […]
