Why You Choose Someone Who Can’t Be Trusted

I’ve heard this one so many times, “He’s been unfaithful to every woman he has ever been with. But I know for a fact that it’s different with me.” Oh really? I read this in an article about open relationships. One lady gave this reason as to why she allows her relationship to be “open” […]

Stats About Being Unequally Yoked

I have yet to write about this “huge” Christian dilemma of dating someone who is “unequally yoked.” Mostly because I hate that term. I’ve had those words beat over me enough when I was younger.

“Be radical. Just wake up and DECIDE.”

Part of brave dating is you simply have to be vulnerable. Being vulnerable opens you up to the “what if” that God has for you. Living with the “what if” that God has for you is an exciting way to live. Along the way though you may/will meet some crazies. One of my coaching participants joined […]
