When You Are Not Interested in a Man Who Is Interested in You

When You Are Not Interested in a Man Who Is Interested in You

  I think a lot of this will apply even with unbelieving men – but I especially want to focus on how we can handle turning down true Christian men who are interested in us. This is a BIG issue. It is a sensitive and painful one – on both sides – but...

Stand Firm, My Dear Sisters!

“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it. Matthew 7:13-14 I am sure that I don’t have to...
