Milk and Honey Magazine open letter to the single girl in waiting. Jesus is the best match-maker, trust in his word!

To the Woman in Waiting

I see you there, wondering what the purpose for this season is and desperately wanting a direction, any direction to move in. And I know that seasons of waiting can often feel disheartening, confusing and question filled…

We could probably never make a complete list of all the things we find ourselves waiting on during our lifetimes, wondering when (or if!) God will bring them along… a spouse, children, dream job, supportive friends, more time, better health, more money – the list could go on forever.

Milk and Honey Magazine steps to nurture your marriage and romance through planned date nights/mornings/and getaways!

Nurturing Your Marriage

Recently someone in my social media feed posted a picture with the caption: 
"What is your ideal date night with your man?”

As I read through the comments, my heart sank. One woman after another commented that the only time she and her husband had together was after the kids had gone to bed. The main reason given for not “going out” was that they didn’t live near any extended family.

What shocked me the most was the number of moms who said they hadn’t had a date night all year!

Single Women of the Bible

I'm sure you saw the title of this post and thought, "Great, another blog post about how Ruth is the epitome of singleness in the Bible." I'm happy to report that that's not what this post is about. I love the book of Ruth. I think it can definitely be helpful to single women, but sometimes, and maybe this is just me, it reads to me of the story of a girl who lost her husband and throws herself at the first available man. Obviously, I'm taking things WAY out of context, and there's a lot more going on in the story than that.

Milk and Honey Magazine dishes on how being single is just as beautiful as being in a relationship this Valentines Day! Trust in Jesus, dear girl. xo

Single Valentine

I grew up in the South which has more traditional views, and women often get married young. Some families in my circle had an opinion that a marriage proposal should be soon after a high school diploma. So while my gal peers got a husband, kid(s), and the white picket fence after high school, I got 3 degrees, loan debt, and adult braces.

However some things are just darn confusing, so I’m here with a timeout card, ready to break down the essence of football with our Girlfriend’s Guide to Football Sunday. 

31 Ways To Make Him Smile

How many of you absolutely swoon and go weak at the knees every time your husband smiles? Well, I do. Not to brag or anything - except I totally am - but Derek was in fact voted best smile in high school. He was also voted best dressed, and while he does have a versatile and head turning sense of style that perfectly flatters his athletic physique - his smile is the best thing he wears. I mean come on, look at him, people!

Milk and Honey Magazine's 20 ways to love your husband through knowing his love language, not complaining, and loving him in a Christlike way!

Loving Your Husband

We say “I love you” to our spouses often, but actions speak louder than words. It’s much easier to say I love you than to show it. When thinking of ways you can love your husband, you’ll want to think first “what is his love language?” Here is an article that explains the love languages in depth.

Milk and Honey Magazine's tips for a successful marriage. What do you wish you knew before you were married?

What I Wish I Knew About Marriage

While marriage can be a lifelong celebration, it also comes with much work and humility, all the while tightly bound with constant learning. My husband Derek and I have been together for four years, and I’ve collected these truths through a ton of reading, learning from people who have thriving and God honoring marriages, and let's face it, lots of trial and error – I can’t make this stuff up, people! But they’re practical, wise, and simply put - they work.
