Feeling Worthless Because You Don’t Have a Boyfriend?

WATCH VIDEO Have you ever thought any of these things: “It seems like I’m the only girl out of all of my friends who doesn’t have a boyfriend and I feel really left out.” “Why does it feel like my ‘relationship status’ on social media is neon light telling the world I’m not wanted?” “Friday nights are really hard…it’s in those moments that I feel desperate for a boyfriend.” Balancing the desire for a boyfriend while also seeking to trust in God’s timing can be really hard.

Dear Single Sister, Don’t Settle (It’s Not Worth It)

Dear Single Sister, as you look around at your friends and see them in relationships, I know it can be  hard to stay content. I remember the feelings all too well myself. The loneliness can hit anytime and feel all consuming. Especially on the weekends when everyone seems to be going out with their significant other, except you. In those moments, feelings of anxiousness and fear can creep in and capture your heart. Discontentment floods your perspective and you wonder if you’ll ever be able to find joy in your current stage of life.  The temptation to “fix the problem” can be so strong. I remember this too.

136 Questions to Ask in a Romantic Relationship

WATCH VIDEO I (Bethany) clearly remember assuming that my boyfriend and I were on the same page about our beliefs and convictions. We didn’t take the time to ask the hard of questions and really get to know each other. I made a lot of assumptions. Things didn’t end so well as a result.  When Dav and I started our relationship, I didn’t want to make the same mistake. I compiled and created a list of 136 questions to help guide our conversations and make sure we actually talked through as much as possible while dating.  This isn’t a magical list. It’s not a “fool-proof” method or anything like that.Full Post

Thoughts on Dating and Marrying a Shorter Guy

I’d never had a first date quite like this one. Dāv and I weren’t strangers to each other. In fact, we were the opposite. We’d been hanging out in the same friend group for several years. Our group had traveled together, laughed together, cried together, and watched several members of the group get married and start families.  Dāv and I were close friends and we were both well aware of the fact that I was taller than him…and older than him. There are some things you just can’t hide in life.  Little did I ever expect him to ask me out on a date.  To our entire group’s shockFull Post

How Infertility and Loss Has Strengthened My Faith

“Do you ever feel angry at God?” “Do you wonder why God is allowing these trials to happen in your life?” “Does it feel like God is being unfair to you in some ways?” Over the past few years, I’ve received dozens of questions like these from various people. Most of them come through social media as a result of my public journey through infertility and recurrent miscarriage. Honestly, I don’t mind these types of questions. They’re raw, honest, and gut-wrenching questions that call for an authentic answer. I’ll be the first to admit that I haven’t walked this journey perfectly. In fact, I remember crying out to GodFull Post
