Can I be Complete Without Marriage?

I’ve heard it suggested that marriage is the only place you can attain full intimacy with God. It seems that because Christian covenant marriage is the concession for full, and hopefully safe, expression of one’s sexuality, it is synonymously the epitome of intimacy.

Are Your Friends Good for You?

I read something on social media the other day and it said, “Surround yourself with people who make you happy.” Although I can appreciate the sentiment and heart of the statement, I actually found myself slightly grieved.

Look Up

A spoken word by Mandie Messerschmidt I’m Drowning. Where am I? I look around and I am drowning in a pool of fear and doubt. I look to my left and I see the dollar signs that are so closely following me. I panic. How did they find me even here? Trying to find relief… […]

To Be Known

“I always thought it was what I wanted to be loved and admired…. now I think I’d like to be known.” — The Nightingale The idea of being truly known is something I’ve been pondering for a couple weeks now. My thoughts have been prompted by a reflection on our generation and the roadblocks to […]
