Embracing your role as the heart

I hope you read my last post about owning the power that is only found in submission. I pray that it helped clarify the biblical meaning of the word so that we can abandon the negative connotation the secular world has put on it. It is through not being responsible for everything at the top that allows women to fully be who we were created to be. Now, I would like to expand on those thoughts a little by diving into a woman’s role as the heart of the marriage and family. Proverbs 4:23 instructs us all to, “above all … Continue reading Embracing your role as the heart

Find and own your power in submission

The definition of submission in the biblical context is an act of yielding and/or complying to the authority or control of another. An example of submission would be a highly trained soldier in combat who follows orders because he or she trusts their commanding officer’s decisions. This soldier knows they have a specific job to do that leaves the rest of the unit vulnerable to attack if they do not fulfill their responsibility. Submission differs slightly from being humble because humility is a choice to reduce power or independence. Meanwhile submission does not lessen the power of the individual but … Continue reading Find and own your power in submission

Boaz avoids Karen (Pt. 3)

This is part 3 in the series. I do not recommend starting here without reading the context of the previous 2 posts first. “God just doesn’t understand…or does He?”The human body can survive about 3 weeks without food. That same body can only survive 3 to 4 days without water. Does that mean we believe water is more important than food? When you’re craving that big juicy burger, I bet you would be deeply disappointed by a big glass of water instead. Food and water are different but not equal in how long we can survive without them. However, without … Continue reading Boaz avoids Karen (Pt. 3)

Boaz avoids Karen (Pt. 2)

In the first part of this blog post we discussed the characteristics of a modern day “karen”. The type of woman embodied in that description is undesirable by non-Christians and is completely unacceptable to living a Christian life. Yet, many of those in church every Sunday can be seen behaving like “a Karen” during the week (male and female). Sometimes that behavior shows its head at church too. In this post, I want to talk about the scriptural design for marriage and what that looks like in practice. The new testament encouraged the role of women in the kingdom which … Continue reading Boaz avoids Karen (Pt. 2)

Boaz avoids Karen (Pt. 1)

In writing this, I’ve realized it will need to be broken into parts. So, this is part 1. “I’m not a Karen. She is!”The name “Karen” in our modern society has come to embody certain characteristics of a woman that are pretty undesirable to most people and should be considered completely unacceptable to Christian women. I don’t recommend too much exposure to Urban dictionary because we are commanded to guard our hearts, eyes and ears but that website, being a fairly accurate representation of worldly beliefs, defines “karen” as follows:• gives raisins to kids on Halloween• drives an SUV to carpool her … Continue reading Boaz avoids Karen (Pt. 1)

Jesus sees you

We all are tempted to believe that certain things we do are harmless because the people we care about didn’t see it or know it happened. Or maybe we think it’s OK because everyone around us is doing it too. Before you dismiss that statement saying it doesn’t apply to you, let me give a few examples and let’s examine your motives. Did you send a nude picture to the person you’re dating or want to date? Everybody’s doing it, right? Maybe you’re “better than that” and were in your matching panties and bra/a very skimpy bikini/a towel barely covering … Continue reading Jesus sees you

Oh to be chosen…

When God gave the ten commandments to Moses, He put the most important part first. Here are all the words God spoke. He said, “I am the Lord your God. I brought you out of Egypt. That is the land where you were slaves. “Do not put any other gods in place of me. “Do not make for yourself statues of gods that look like anything in the sky. They may not look like anything on the earth or in the waters either. Do not bow down to them or worship them. I, the Lord your God, am a jealous … Continue reading Oh to be chosen…

Fighting battles without God

“They didn’t think it was important to know God. So God let them continue to have evil thoughts. They did things they shouldn’t do. They are full of every kind of sin, evil and ungodliness. They want more than they need. They commit murder. They want what belongs to other people. They fight and cheat. They hate others. They say mean things about other people. They tell lies about them. They hate God. They are rude and proud. They brag. They think of new ways to do evil. They don’t obey their parents. They do not understand. They can’t be … Continue reading Fighting battles without God

Cut Christian men some slack

Sometimes we women give Christian men a hard time when it comes to dating and relationships. To be fair, sometimes they deserve it. BUT how often have you stopped and thought about the huge amount of responsibility men carry? If I were to break off a single rib from two separate skeletons and put just the rib on the table along with a written description (NOT a picture) of the rib cage each bone came from, do you think you’d be able to match them correctly without additional help? Many men are out here seeking their rib but don’t know … Continue reading Cut Christian men some slack

Who am I?

I’m a child of God, mother of 3, a daughter, a sister, a friend, and an ex-wife. But that’s not all. I’m also an amateur photographer, professional voice talent, a writer, a producer, active laughter participant, and a former perfectionist. Even with all of that, that doesn’t fully describe me. I’ve always felt different. That has become especially noticeable in my dating life. When you date the woman who’s different, you can’t expect her to be measured against any other woman you’ve known. She’s not just unique in the fun ways or on occasion. This is who she genuinely is. … Continue reading Who am I?
