Holiness Before Happiness: Navigating the Challenges of Christian Dating

THERE IS NO AGE LIMIT ON HOLINESS‼️ #Periodtttt The episode further unfolds the stark consequences of giving in to temptation, drawing from the story of wolves trapped by their appetites and the metaphor of a blood-stained sword.

To all the women of faith listening, we offer a rallying cry for patience, personal growth, and the nurturing of community ties.

You've reached out, shared your stories, and it's clear we're all grappling with feeling like we're not enough, whether it's questioning our beauty, capabilities, or worthiness as godly spouses.Allow me to guide you through a personal journey where I reveal my own battle with insecurity and how it threatened to overshadow my relationships and self-perception. This conversation isn't just about me; it's about all of us and the journey to self-love and discovering our true identity in Christ – separate from the affirmations of others. We'll explore how a lack of self-awareness can spell danger for our future marriages and family life, and why it's crucial to address these insecurities head-on. I'm also excited to announce the upcoming launch of my YouTube channel, where we'll continue these vital discussions. This episode is not just a call to introspection but a beacon of hope, empowering you to confront and conquer your doubts and step into your beautiful future with confidence.
