Sharon Discipleship, Girl Stuff, Relationships 2 Comments

Have you ever had one of those weeks where you feel like every man in the world is a dog, and you will never find one good enough to marry? This has been one of those weeks. In the last seven days alone, I have had several guy friends who I trusted and respected put me in extremely compromising situations …

Love Thyself

Sharon Body Image, Girl Stuff, Self-esteem, Theology 1 Comment

A couple days ago I was talking to a friend about a book she’s been reading that’s been really encouraging to her. The book deals with lies that women tend to believe about themselves, which is definitely a relevant topic to women, so I took a look at it. As I glanced over the Table of Contents and read the …

Biological Clock, I Hate You

Well this week I celebrated my 26th birthday, and for some reason I’m feeling old. I did have a 19 year old tell me I “looked good for my age,” so maybe that’s why. But I have to say that after turning 25 last year, the countdown to 30 has become more and more unsettling. Why? Because I’m still single. …

“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 …

so I just heard about two ministries that I think you should check out. One is called “JC’s Girls” and the other is called “Hookers for Jesus.” Both ministries reach out to women in the sex industry, and both ministries were started by women who were themselves in that industry. What is so beautiful about these ministries is that they’re …

The Insatiable Appetite of Vanity

Today a friend of mine informed me that she had just purchased a year’s supply of tanning from a local tanning salon. I didn’t even know you could do such a thing, so she proceeded to explain to me the ins and outs of tanning culture. (Apparently in Texas, where she’s from, it’s pretty popular, so being from North Carolina, …

The Intimidation Factor

Sharon Girl Stuff, Relationships, Women's Ministry 0 Comments

I was recently directed to a blog that a woman named Carolyn McCulley wrote entitled, “Women Who Intimidate.” In this blog, Carolyn discussed what it means when a woman is labeled as being “intimidating.” (If you wanna check it out, the link is below). She argued that labeling a woman as “intimidating” is not necessarily a comment on her success, …

Can’t We All Just Get Along?

Earlier this week I attended a debate on “Religious Speech in the Public Realm” in which my Southern Baptist pastor debated with my pacifist professor. The discussion was interesting to say the least. It really is amazing how two men who both love Christ can differ so greatly on things. In this particular instance, they disagreed on the extent to …
