My Latest Crush

Sharon Girl Stuff, Relationships 1 Comment

I don’t know if people ever read the comments posted in response to my writing, but I wanted to clarify a comment from my last post that referenced my crush on a guy named “Joseph.” Well, I hate to disappoint in case any of you were trying to figure out who this mysterious “Joseph” is, but the Joseph she’s referring …

Easter is More than an Anniversary

Sharon Discipleship, Seasonal, Theology 0 Comments

Over the years, God has made me increasingly aware of how greatly my daily habits shape me. The more I watch popular t.v. shows with teeny tiny actresses, the more I feel insecure about my body.

So after my last post I have received quite a few phone calls and e-mails from people who wanted to make sure I was alright.

“But Abram said to the king of Sodom, “I have raised my hand to the LORD, God Most High, Creator of heaven and earth, and have taken an oath that I will accept nothing belonging to you, not even a thread or the thong of a sandal, so that you will never be able to say, ‘I made Abram rich.’” …

Why We Are ALL Created For Marriage

Sharon Girl Stuff, Theology 1 Comment

Today I realized that every single one of us was created for marriage. This was a somewhat strange revelation since I’m single, and I have no idea whether or not God intends for me to get married to a man during my time on this earth. But, it nevertheless dawned on me that we are all, every single one of …
