The Difference Between a Wife A Wifey is that without the Ring the Wifey Will Never Know The Conviction of a Wife

June 23, 2016 // 6 Comments

There are so many women in relationships calling themselves a wifey. To give you a lose definition of what a wifey is. It is a woman that is in a serious relationship with a man. The relationship is so serious that the man considers her to be wife material, but she is not his wife because they are not married.  On the outside they appear to be married.  They may live together or have children together, but they are not legally married. I know what you may be thinking. What is the difference? As long as a man treats you good, what difference does a title make? I am glad you asked me that, [...]

June 20, 2016 // 16 Comments

I know that everyone always says that but, I mean really, it is hard work.  You may be wondering how I know this since I am not married, well let me tell you.  I have a Master’s in marriage and family therapy, and at one point I was counseling married couples to fulfill a requirement of my degree.  Can you imagine a non-married, at the time 20 something year old women, counseling married people about their problems?

June 15, 2016 // 29 Comments

This blog is a request that by a friend of mine. I decided to do it because I think it raises an interesting question that many women face. If a women is having an affair with a married man, is there ever a time in which it can be more than an affair and turn into love? To answer this question I think we must define love.

Since I am writing this, I am going to tell you my definition of love.  I feel when you truly love someone, then it is really one of those most unselfish things you can do.  So when a [...]

Dating Versus Courtship. Which One is Right?

April 28, 2016 // 0 Comments

Among the Christian single community, there is a lingering debate as to whether dating is wrong and courting is correct.  If you are not familiar with courting, it is typically seen as two people “dating” or getting to know one another for the SOLE purpose of getting married. I personally do not see anything wrong with either one.  I have heard many courting stories of Christian women stating that this is the way they meant their husband.  But I will be honest and say that I do not believe that courting is for everyone.  Although I am not actively dating anyone now, if someone ask me [...]

April 23, 2016 // 4 Comments

How many of us single people imagine that when we get married it would be the perfection that we have always longed for. All the depression and sadness that we felt as a single person will magically disappear, and we will be made whole again once we walked down the aisle.  Sounds a bit dramatic but this is how so many of us think when it comes to marriage.   I used to think this way when it comes to marriage. Through my years and through my experiences, I have learned a valuable lesson, and that is that nothing or no one is perfect no matter how much of a perfect person they appear to [...]

February 9, 2016 // 3 Comments

The Wait is a book that I pre-ordered and could not wait to read.  I am a big fan of both Megan Good and Devon Franklin.  When reading the book I say with much regret that I was a little disappointed.  It is a good book do not get me wrong, but I think that it could have been a whole lot better.  Let’s start with the pros of the book. It gives positive and uplifting advice. It talks about what “The wait” is and how you can embark on it. The book is good for you if: You are new to your spiritual walk. Are just starting celibacy.
