86. Pressure to Marry By a Certain Age

In the church especially, there is a pressure to marry by a certain age, which isn't inherently a bad thing, however, it can become something discouraging to those who want to marry and desire to have families but are not married by the "ideal" age.

83. Where Purity Culture Went Wrong

While the principle of purity culture is biblical (primarily the idea of saving sex for marriage), many methods in which this principle has been conveyed within evangelical Christianity have been harmful, regressive and detrimental to the way that many Christians have and do view sex.

II Corinthians 6:14 Paul the Apostle instructs us: "Don't be unequally yoked together with unbelievers." We often hear this phrase "unequally yoked" in regards to Christian dating, but what signs can we look out for to indicate that we are unequally yoked with a significant other?

55. It's Okay to Wait

In an era where waiting is not only despised but frowned upon, it can be difficult living as a young Christian waiting on the Lord.

In this week's episode, I discuss biblical waiting and how it will result in high quality results.

54. What They Didn't Tell You About Waiting Until Marriage

A lot of Christians wait until marriage merely because "the Bible says so." While this reason is completely valid, the sentiment of waiting until marriage to have sex, resulting in happier, more satisfying marriages, is supported by recent studies, data and statistics, which will be explored in this episode. In addition in Christianity, there has been a lot of shame attached to those who make mistakes, especially sexually. There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. God wants to prevent your pain but he can also restore your mistakes.  Links to articles: https://ifstudies.org/blog/counterintuitive-trends-in-the-link-between-premarital-sex-and-marital-stability https://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2018/10/sexual-partners-and-marital-happiness/573493/ https://psiloveyou.xyz/what-happens-to-your-brain-after-having-too-much-casual-sex-41a206c7f303

53. The Purity Problem

Purity culture in Christianity has taught many harmful ideologies in regards to sexuality and the bible: convincing girls that they are at fault for the lust of men, or that you're dirty or "leftovers" if you're not sexually pure. The problem isn't purity, which is a biblical theme and guideline; the problem lies in the way that we've talked about it. In this week's episode, I discuss biblical purity, how we can pursue it and dismantle destructive lies that may potentially push us away from God and an abundant life in Him.

51. Single and struggling?

Being a Christian single can be difficult. Dating these days seems impossibly hard, people around us are getting engaged, married and starting families, yet for some of us, it hasn't happened yet. Honestly, it can be quite discouraging being single, but you're not alone. Singleness is sometimes (and a lot of times) a struggle, but it's not one that you have to go through alone.

The phrase "wait on the Lord" is a phrase often said throughout the Bible and in Christianity...but what does that mean in depth? How am I supposed to wait on the Lord? Why is waiting so difficult? Do seasons of waiting have to be gruesome? In this week's episode, I discuss how to wait on the Lord biblically and how to have an enriching and fulfilling experience waiting on the Lord.

49. Surrendering Your Desire for Marriage to God

48. Practical Protection

They say that “rules are meant to be broken” but when it comes to the principles the God has set in place for us in the Bible, the consequences can become quite serious and are deeper than we initially suspect if we choose a path that we deem to be better than God’s. In this episode, I discuss God’s practical protection.

47. Can I sabotage God's will for my life?

To us, the phrase "God's will" often times seems very rigid and can cause us to feel pressure to do things perfectly, hardly make mistakes and make every decision correctly. In today's episode, I will discuss the idea of "sabotaging" or "messing up" God's will for our lives and how we place too much pressure on ourselves.

44. God Hears You

Seemingly unanswered prayers, prolonged promises and eerily quiet prayer times can cause us to feel like God isn't listening to us. There are times in our lives when God seems quiet, but His perceived silence does not indicate that He is not good. He is always good and He is always working. All things work together for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28) and in today's episode, I will discuss God's forever faithfulness and inclined ear.

43. God's Best is Always Worth the Wait

In our lives, we plan a lot of things. While it's important to have goals and plan things out to a certain degree, we often exalt our own plans above the plans of the Lord, which exceed the goodness and success of our own plans. In this week's episode, I discuss the goodness of God and how His plans for our lives will be worth the wait every single time.

42. What's on your list?

If you're a Christian single, it's more than likely that you've made a "list" of things full of characteristics and accomplishments that you'd like your future spouse to have. Having a list is a good thing, as it's a great guide to select who you will date and marry, but sometimes our lists can become superficial. In this week's episode, I discuss the importance of prioritizing what's on our lists, what's truly important at the end of the day and wants vs. needs.

41. Don't Make Excuses for Why You Should Settle for Less

"Don't settle" is one of the most common phrases that we hear in regards to dating and relationships. Sometimes, we may begin to settle and lower our standards because of infatuation or perceived love. In this week's episode, I discuss the importance of realizing your self worth and as a result, ultimately refusing to settle when choosing a godly mate.

33. What's in your heart?

In Matthew 12:34, we're told that "out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks." Our hearts reveal a lot about us, and about how we think. In this week's episode, I will delve into a few scriptures about the heart and attempt to answer a few probing questions: How do we know if we have positive or negative things in our hearts? How can our hearts be changed? How can what's in our hearts affect our lives and interactions with others?

32. When Things Don't Go the Way That You Planned...

We all have our own ideas of how our lives should go, but things don't always turn out the way that we plan or expect them to turn out. In this episode, I will give two biblical examples, Ruth and Hosea, that highlight "unusual circumstances" that may cause us to feel like we've gotten off track or can no longer be redeemed. You are not damaged goods. You are never too far to be redeemed. Jesus desires to make you HIS, no matter who you were before, or no matter what your previous or current circumstances are.
