A Surrendered Heart
Laying Our Romantic Dreams at Jesus’ Feet

by Leslie Ludy

No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other.Matthew 6:24It was a warm September evening, twenty-three years ago.  I sat quietly on my bed, gazing through my open window at the brilliant colors that lit up the sky as the sun slowly dipped below the horizon.  It was a beautiful scene, but I coul

Thriving in Singleness

by Sarah Guthrie

...then let her surrender herself, and follow God along whatever path her loving Lord thinks fit to lead her: whether it be to contemplation or action, to usefulness or enjoyment; whether in sorrow or in joy, let her follow on.– Tauler It was a summer day in sunny Colorado ... yet my mind was 2,000 miles east of where I stood.

Wait for Him

Annie Wesche

But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: the steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is thy faithfulness.  "The Lord is my portion," says my soul, "therefore I will hope in Him." The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, to the soul that seeks Him.

Staying Your Heart Upon Your Trustworthy King

by Annie Wesche

MY PRINCE, MY CASTLE, & MY KING The train rolled steadily along as I watched droplets of rain gently tap the window beside me.  I watched one English town after the next pass by in a blur, feeling a combination of intense apprehension and joyful excitement.  After a year of praying, planning, and dreaming, I was finally on my way to Bible college in the breathtaking Lake District of

Leaving the Pen in God's Hands

by Leslie Ludy

Using Your Single Years Well

by Leslie Ludy

Cross-Centered Love Stories

by Leslie Ludy

Whenever Valentine’s Day approaches, the subject of romantic relationships surfaces suddenly, like a deep-sea diver coming up for air.  You can’t write a book called When God Writes Your Love Story and not be roped into the topic of romance on Valentine’s Day.

Waiting for a Christ-Built Man

by Leslie Ludy

It’s surprising how many Christ-focused young women I meet have a difficult time transferring their romance with Jesus into the arena of guys.  We might accept the fact that Jesus Christ is a princely, heroic gentleman who laid down His very life on our behalf.  But when it comes to

His Sacred Task

Annie Wesche

Faith is not faith unless it is tested.  And the single woman who entrusts her future love story to God certainly has before her a mighty test of faith, especially in our world today.  As the years of singleness follow one after the other, will she choose to turn to the world’s pattern or will she stand unwaveringly, trusting in her God?

Preparing to Marry a Warrior Poet

by Anonymous Warrior Poet

Sabina Wurmbrand’s life made an impact that has reverberated into innumerable lives. Imagine yourself in Romania, in 1945. Communism has recently stormed Romania and is raining torrents of hatred and persecution upon the Christians. They've also taken a more subtle approach through seeking to slither their way into the inner ranks of the Church.
