What about when you’re alone with your boyfriend or future boyfriend?
Countless friends have recently asked me this question, and I feel as though it is such a hard battle to face and discuss. I tried my best to be understanding and transparent, and every time I prayed about this for my sweet friends, a word kept coming to my mind: boundaries.

I went to a youth group a few nights ago at a nearby church. My cousin and sister and I had been talking about this for a while, but like all things we never actually did it. Talk, talk, talk, but no walk. I wasn’t going to go, but I finished all of my work, so […]

Brokenness Aside

One thing I have been recently struck by is the passion of God’s hatred for sin. I’ve been reading through different portions of Scripture that are harsh, direct, and stinging in their dealings with sin. Nowhere do you find the current modern culture’s approach to Christianity, speaking only of love, tolerance, and acceptance. There is […]

The uncertainty of knowing when or if you’ll ever meet “the one.” Feeling the need to be at every social event so you don’t accidentally miss out on fate. The nights of crying in frustration because you’re so over being single. Having to navigate through dating (that’s a whole other blog for another day!). Feeling […]


Singleness

The number of people I hear complaining about their present situation in life is fascinating. While there are undoubtedly circumstances that are uncontrollable, the majority of these complaints are centered around things that are totally within their realm of influence. Of course, I make these judgements not merely based on my observations of others, but […]


Encouragement

When I first entered a Christian community, I was shocked at dating practices such as dating in groups and dating in public. However, after growing in my relationship with the Lord for some time, I have seen how these practices line up with Scripture, and why they are key in staying pure in our relationships. […]

The heart of Delight & Be is what happens under the roof of the Delight House. It is a safe place. It is a place of worship, where the Holy Spirit’s presence is evident. A place where we do workshops! When I first felt God asking us to build the Delight House, I envisioned more […]


Announcements

I. “I just saw Ann Voskamp” was not the first thing I thought I would hear after getting through the LGA airport security. I scanned my friend’s face as I would a map for some specific direction on our search for Ann, but we were dumbfounded. In one excited breath, Bethany described the sight of […]


Encouragement

There is not always a choice. We tell it to our friends, our children, our Christian brothers & sisters: “You always have a choice.” It’s a disciplinary strategy, a way to keep us from making excuses, a way to take responsibility. But it’s not true. There is not always a choice. For me, there was […]

Last week I traveled 1,929.4 mi from the craziness of the Chicagoland area to the quiet peace of Pateros, WA. As I was on my second flight on my way there, I thought about the word “Discipline”. Not from a perspective of teaching it, but truly thinking about discipline in my own life, and I […]


Retreats + Workshops

It seems like the whole world is obsessed with finding a spouse. You know what I mean, though, right? Tell me you see it, too. Maybe you see it in your friends or maybe you’ve realized it for yourself, but it just seems as though all we’re living for is whether or not we’ve got a […]

Hey, Girl… It’s time to get your hopes up. High, high, high. As high as the heavens are above the earth. Because that’s how great your God’s steadfast love is towards you. I see you, girl. That shadow on your face that speaks of ruined dreams and crushed expectations. I feel as though I can […]


Spiritual Growth

Heartache. It hits at unexpected times, and one can ever be prepared for it. No matter what preparation one attempts, the pain, when it accrues, is always a shock. Though you might not be enveloped in it at this moment, at one time or another, you will have pain. Sadly, it is a fact that […]
