Divorce is Not an Option

Our society has really screwed us over. Society has taught us to do whatever makes us happy. Our society has made us selfish and lazy… and lonely.

I’ve literally had a married person say to me, “I know I said vows, but it doesn’t matter. I’m not going to stay in this marriage if I’m not happy.”  How do people not see the problem with this?! You became one when you got married! You made a commitment! If ending the relationship was an option, why did you get married? Just continue dating and avoid the extra heartache when it ends.  Continue reading

Do New Believers Understand the Need for Repentance?

I can’t even count how many times (especially at teen events) I’ve heard “If you have not been saved, say this prayer with me…” These words fill me with excitement, because it may mean that I will be gaining a new brother or sister in Christ, but I also feel a twinge of worry for those who are saying it along with the leader. Do they really understand the words they are saying? Do they know where they are going from here? Continue reading

25 Thoughts I’ve had as a Social Worker

I had no plan for what I was going to do with a psychology degree (Other than that I wanted to work with kids). After 4 years of college, I was having a little freak out! What the heck was I thinking choosing psychology as a major?! I started applying for a bunch of jobs that I could use my degree for. After a lot of work, I found a job! In the wonderful world of social work… I started my job the Monday after graduation. I was in for a real surprise. At least I didn’t have to hear “are you going to analyze me?” anymore after telling people my major!

So beginning my first social work job was definitely interesting. I work for a program that essentially teaches parents how to parent. I work with families with children age 5 and under. They’re the CUTEST!! But their parents are not. This job is tough, but I’m still here after almost 2 years! Continue reading

Why suffering does not mean there is no God

This was originally a Facebook post that I felt God was asking me to write after a boy I went to school with passed away much too young. I was reading about numerous other heartbreaking situations going on in my hometown at the same time.

A few weeks later, (after the post) another boy from the same class passed away.

This world really is tragic, but there’s hope. Read on. Continue reading

Wedding DIYs

Who doesn’t love a good wedding post?

Like most girls, I dreamed of my wedding day my whole life. And, like most girls, I found that weddings are a lot more stressful than I had imagined. Other people have opinions, everything is ridiculously expensive, and things don’t always turn out the way you plan. First of all, try not to please everyone. It’s your day! Work things out with your fiancé and whoever is paying for the wedding and let other people’s opinions go. Continue reading
