Trouble In Paradise

Our blissful first week of marriage was interrupted by a major test: I found my new husband on a dating site! A mutual friend knew we had just gotten married, and she sent Roy a picture of his online dating profile on a dating site known as Bumble.

An Open Letter to Lysa TerKeurst

Dear Lysa, I read your blog Rejection, Heartache, and a Faithful God today. As I read the words, I couldn’t hold back the tears.

But they don’t know the man he becomes behind closed doors.” I receive emails similar to this almost every day. Male and female. Young and old.
