What My Dad Taught Me About Dating

My dad always made it clear that if you’re single, Satan is after you. He’s after all of us, however, there are some unique dangers in singleness — especially in “unwanted singleness.” Satan loves to deceive and discourage us in our singleness. Yet, what “he intends for evil God intends for good.” The Lord wants…

the struggle for immediate success

Have you ever reached the point where you feel like you’ve given everything you have and still you see no results?  Have you spent months working hard to not get promoted at the end of the quarter? Have you studied for weeks for the test to then receive an F? Have you put in the…

the cries of his people

This past Monday night I attended Vertical at Baylor University. Vertical “is a non-denominational, student led ministry that seeks to challenge college students to actively pursue an authentic and ‘vertical’ relationship with God.” This particular Monday I came in exhausted and completely overwhelmed. I had this thirst and hunger for the word unlike anything I had experienced…

don’t be the burden carrier

This past Saturday I met with our family counselor in hopes that I would gain a new perspective on how to better love my family and live in community with one another. [Side note: first, meeting with a counselor is healthy. second, “people think, ‘I have to be in crisis to have a counselor,’ or,…

pray for him.

To all my sisters who have felt like they will never get married, never find the right guy, are tired of waiting, or maybe you think all of the so-called “good” guys are way out of your league, this one is for you. I hope to offer you a bit of encouragement in this battle…

The Nearness of You

After finals I came home to a house being remodeled, a small fluffy dog who wants to hangout all the time, and the temptation of the glorious tv remote and the wide variety of sports channels it has access to. The first two days I darn right plopped myself down on the couch and ate every thing…

Choosing your seat

The other day I was sitting at my computer looking for some concert tickets. While I was going through ticket prices I got to a page where the screen showed all of the available seats, each one came with a different price. Me, being the poor college kid that I am did not have many…

“check yourself before you wreck yourself”

So God has this ability to consistently remind me of where and what He wants me to do in life and boy am I pretty good at resisting it until I can’t anymore. Well you see, these past four weeks the Lord has tugged on my heart and pushed me to examine my life. He…

the waiting game

Here is to terrible grammar and a quick summary of my aha moment yesterday!! Yesterday morning in Church as we were worshipping and repeating the lyrics “I will wait for you, I will wait,” the Lord asked me a rather odd question. He said, “Britain when are you going to stop waiting?” **mic drop** Being…

eighteen lessons learned

WOW!! it’s already been 18 years… 18 fun-filled years of busy, wild, exciting experiences. With each increasing year comes more new-found freedom and memories as well as heartbreak, tears, and failures. As time passes and new stages in life begin to happen, I find myself reflecting on all that I have learned throughout my time here….

The Perfect Wave

A few weeks ago I stood on the sandy beaches of Cabo San Lucas as I watched six local skimboarders hit the waves. Now two of the men were off to my right apart from the other group, while the rest of the six were to my left. Each one had the necessary equipment and…

“To Hell in a Handbasket”

America, the world’s greatest nation, or so they say, has lost its grip on what it means to be a well-respected, unified country. We have overlooked the principles and framework our country was founded on for far too long. On September 17, 1787, this great nation formed the constitution and deemed its authority over the…
