    I was wondering if you would be able to share about the place school should have in the life of a set apart girl. Since I have been seeking to know God better, I have been struggling more with my schoolwork — it seems to have little value and purpose, and it sometimes feels like a waste of time. What should I do?

    Integrity is hard to find among many circles of society, including Christian circles. It seems that people say “no" to big compromises to their integrity, but when it comes to the little things where it can be of benefit to them, they compromise. What should I do? How do I remain steadfast when others around me are compromising their integrity?

    My pastor told us that we need to worship God with our lives all the time, instead of just living from one experience where we feel very close to God to the next...my question to you is how? How do I live in complete worship to God every day? How do I worship Him in everything that I do?

    After reading some Set Apart Girl articles about not meddling with darkness, I realized that you bring up the Twilight series rather frequently as an example. Since we are not supposed to have anything to do with the occult and things of darkness such as witchcraft...can we read about mythical creatures in fantasy-based books?

    There is a godly young man who appears to be pursuing me. He has not yet said anything outright about a relationship, but I would be naive to not think that he is likely interested in more than friendship. It seems like my job right now is to wait on God and allow him to take the next step... How can I make Jesus the center of this situation and not end up spending a lot of energy that I could put toward Jesus and other things?

    I’ve been struggling with feeling ugly physically. Because of it, I’ve made makeup an idol in my life and am so self-conscious about the way I look. I have been called ugly by guys and even some family members. When I look in the mirror ... I don’t see someone who is beautiful or feminine. This struggle is affecting my relationship with the Lord and I don’t know how to stop being so obsessed and insecure about the way I look.
