How God Helped Me Move On From a Past Relationship

Red Flags You Should Never Ignore

I was dating the “edgy Christian guy” who played guitar in the worship team and wore cool shoes. He also exhibited small but worrying behaviours at times, but I figured I would be able to fix them.

Does it Matter Who Makes the First Move?

I was the one who made the first move by asking my then-boyfriend (now husband) out. We first met online and after an encouraging conversation, I initiated a coffee date.
