Thankfully, God Doesn't Need "Space"

"God, Please! Ask Me for ANYTHING but THIS!"

"God, Please! Ask Me for ANYTHING but THIS!"

From a precious Christian sister who is currently single and in her 30s: It’s Thursday night. You’ve had a productive day at work; you’ve met deadlines with time to spare, put out fires left and right, found a mistake that everyone has been searching for, for months....

The Tragedy of the "Hook Up" Culture

  For those who are unfamiliar with this term – “hooking up” means having sex with someone you may not even really know, with “no strings attached.” i.e.: “We just met today, but let’s hook up later tonight.” I know...

Do I Condone "BDSM" or "Christian Domestic Discipline"?

Warning – if you have never heard about these topics before, they are often very dark perversions of God’s design for sexuality, femininity, masculinity, and marriage. I am going to purposely leave out as much detail as I can. Some may prefer not to read...
