Read a book or something

In order to learn, you must want to know. Usually when curiosity arises, we ask questions. Think for a second…how are most of your questions answered? Even more, what makes the answers creditable? When I think about life, which I do quite often, millions of questions arise in a moment. I usually cannot contain my […]

The Grocery-Guide for Dating

We have all been to the grocery store at some point or another. Not all of us enjoy grocery shopping and most of us attack the daunting task a little different.

A single gift

Enjoying the gift of singleness is all wrapped up in your perspective. Your outlook will change the game. It’s so easy to go about life like a kid on Christmas morning. He wrote down a list of about ten toys he wanted for Christmas, but on the top of that list in bold letters, circled […]

I just cried at a stranger’s wedding

Are weddings not about knowing the bride and groom personally? If so, how silly is it that I went through YouTube videos of weddings and shed literal tears. It’s quite embarrassing, actually. However, I do not think my tears came from knowing the couple but from knowing the covenant to which they were becoming one. What beautiful earthly representation of […]
