Why We Spent 15 Years in the “Friend Zone”

Yes, that’s the number of years my husband, Jonathan, and I knew each other before we got married. I guess you could consider us living examples of the saying, “The best relationships start off as friendships”.

Could Christmas be About Abraham too?

Have you ever received a lovely gift and thanked the giver appropriately, only to realize later that it was homemade? Suddenly the significance of the gift grows, because you now know that the giver had put in much effort and many hours into it, and your former expression of thanks doesn’t seem adequate any more.

Why Love isn’t a Good Feeling

I’ll ’fess up. I plain didn’t like Terence (can’t tell you his real name, of course). I didn’t like the way he walked or talked. I couldn’t stand the way he moved around with a swagger, swinging his arms confidently and looking left and right as if he ran the whole church.

Do You Know Who You Really Are?

Are you an ENTP*? What are your top strengths? What does your sleeping position say about you? Did you know that your favorite color says something about who you are?

Why Marriage isn’t the only way to experience True Love

When I was in my teenage years, one of the signs of our coming of age was being able to buy liquor, and drink in bars or pubs. But as time went by and the guys completed their time in National Service and the girls entered their final year of university, drinking lost its novelty.

Poem: By Your Side

By your side There is peace, A quiet place Of beauty and realization, Where wisdom Seeks reason and understanding, Where myth is laid to rest By the reality of knowledge.

ODJ: fit for a king

A man known as the “king of cocaine” built an island hideaway known to the locals as the big house. It featured a marble lobby and an the big enormous pool ringed by palm trees. The now-deceased man’s estate included multiple waterfront dwellings where 300 guests could lodge in luxury. Gardens, boats, and a helicopter landing pad all displayed the “king’s&rdq

Good Samaritan gets killed while helping another

A man offers help to another, but in the process, gets shot by the latter and dies. Talk about injustice. But that’s exactly what happened last Friday (22 January) in Catawba County, North Carolina, U.S.

Knowing Us Inside Out

A typical question I get asked as a psychology major is: “Can you read my mind?” (No prizes for guessing my answer.) Perhaps that is why I have thought about how wonderful it would be if I could actually read another person’s mind. I’m pretty sure I’m not the only person to think that way, which is why I think Disney’s latest Pixar offering, Inside Out, appeals to so many of us.

Pam, Wex and Rachel: Planning Picnics for Complete Strangers

Imagine sitting cross-legged at a picnic beside a tranquil lake. The setting sun casts a warm hue of orange and pink in the sky. In front of you is a smorgasbord of home-cooked food: freshly baked bread with home-churned butter, garden salad that literally came from a garden, and melt-in-your-mouth beef braised in red wine.

Beacon Light: Where Gospel Meets Hip Hop

The YouTube video starts off the soothing lyrics and familiar tune of a Sunday School classic, with a small girl swaying gently as she sings, “Jesus loves me”. Then the cynical voice of a young man cuts in, telling the story of how the same words, taught to him at an early age, meant little when he was molested.

Be Still

In the midst of, well, life, it can be so easy to let it fly past without a second thought. To feel stressed by all the possibilities, responsibilities and opportunities that God gives us, rather than blessed. These verses will hopefully remind you that, in God, we can have a safe and trustworthy hope for our insecure and unstable lives.

#TruthAboutWhoYouAre

The #TruthAboutWhoYouAre series was created to dive deeper into the Bible to discover who God says we are so we can live out our fullest potential. God has created all of us to do extraordinary things. You have what it takes to make great things happen. Not only that, you were created to do great things, according to Ephesians 2:10. Many times, we will feel like we are "not enough" or "not qualified" but those are just feelings. Our feelings are valid but we can't let them determine the course of our life. The #TruthAboutWhoYouAre series reveals the truth about who you are.

This month, we speak to different individuals and hear their stories--and struggles. Can you identify with any of these? Share with us what's going on in your life.

These are a few of my favorite quotes

Emily Barnett. Full-time photographer and painter, part-time writer. I love fairy tales and they inspire me, and so I paint about them or write new ones. Even in my photography I am drawn to the magical atmosphere that a session can have. I struggle with the idea that I want my work to be raw and brutally honest. There are some amazing artists out there that can bring you to tears with work that is graphic or depressing. And we probably need that to awaken us when we become lethargic.
