Contentment in God alone can be tough to focus on in your daily life, ya feel me? We have so many distractions, and guys can easily be one of them. It’s easy for us girls to be so focused on guys or things of this world, that we place our hope and contentment in things other than the Lord.
The truth is, only God can satisfy our hearts. When we place our hope in other things, we’ll always be dissatisfied.Read More »

Praying for your future husband is something that is so exciting and wonderful for us as single women to do. We get to pray for the one that we’ll one day be married to, and already honor him, although we haven’t entered into a relationship with him yet.
Why is it important to pray for your future husband, you might wonder? Well, there’s a few reasons why, and I want to share them with you today.Read More »

Guy friendships can be complicated – it can be tough to know how far into the friendship we can go before travelling down a road that could lead us to having unwanted feelings for each other/being in sinful or tempting situations.
I believe guy friendships are wonderful & important. However, I also believe there’s a balance that we, as Christian girls and young women, need to strive for. We shouldn’t refrain from guy friendships altogether because they’re too complicated, and we shouldn’t have super tight-knit guy friendships who we share everything with, because that can lead to intimacy that neither of us intended for.
What is this balance? Well, it’s different for everyone, and please don’t think I’m trying to force you to legalistically follow these boundaries. In this post, I want to dig into a few ways to have God-honoring friendships with guys. Let’s go!Read More »
As 2018 began, I set a goal to read 5-7 good Christian books. I ended up reading 10 books (fiction and non-fiction), which surprised me! I was so blessed to be part of a few book teams and pre-read books for people, which allowed me to find new amazing books & read them for free. In 2018 I read some good books & wanted to share my favorites with you today! Let’s go…Read More »
Being a single girl can be tough. We see our friends getting boyfriends, getting engaged, then getting married, and even having kids! We then look at our own lives & see a purposeless season of life – singleness.
We tend to have the wrong outlook on being single, seeing singleness as some sort of curse. However, this is not true in the least! If you’re a single girl like me, I want to share 5 important reminders with you.Read More »
Hi, I’m Caitlyn, I’m in my upper teen years, and I’ve never been on a date. I’ve never even been asked on one!
Many people will think you’re crazy if you’ve never been on a date by your late teen years, & young adult years. For the world, it’s normal for teens/young adults to have multiple significant others throughout the years. But, is it healthy? Does dating around honor God? Let’s explore these questions in today’s blog post.Read More »
926,000 abortions were made in 2014. (source)
In that same year, 19% of pregnancies (miscarriages not included) ended in abortion.
From the abortion rates in 2014, one in 20 women will have an abortion by age twenty, about one in five by age thirty, and about one in four by the age of fourty-five. (source)
I choose to be pro-life.
Why, you might ask? Let me explain…Read More »
A couple months ago, my family and I were watching America’s Got Talent. This guy named Joseph O’Brien came on and started singing an original song. In his song, he mentioned praying and my brother made a sarcastic comment that maybe he was “Christian,” and I laughed and was like, “maybe?”
I proceeded to look Joseph up on Instagram and noticed he had a verse in his bio. I thought that was pretty cool, but we all know that anyone can call themselves “Christian” or put a verse in their social media bio, but not be truly living for God.
However, as I followed Joseph on Instagram and watched him while he was on AGT, I noticed that he truly does live like a Christian. His faith in God influences the way he lives and all he does, and that really encouraged me. It’s nice to see someone on a show like that with genuine faith in God! I absolutely love his music and his voice, but his faith is what inspires me above all. He is an amazingly talented guy!
I reached out to Joseph via email a couple weeks ago asking if he would answer some questions to share with you all. I was SO SOOO excited when he replied with a YES!!
It’s hard to believe that fall is here! The summer days just seemed to fly by. A few of weeks ago, I was putting out decorations, getting ready for the Autumn season, when I began to think again about the subject of thankfulness and the whole overall aspect of the season.
I have been blessed to grow up in a Godly home with loving parents who have taught me from the very beginning of my life to be grateful for opportunities to bless people. So I am thankful for this opportunity to write on this blog. Because more than anything, I am hoping to encourage you all as well as myself to follow hard after Jesus.Read More »
