Integrity

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?

Living Unashamed

Annie Wesche

It seemed like just another typical day at the start of my spring semester of Bible college as I navigated the main hall on my way to class.

Training Up a Lil' Hero

by Leslie Ludy

Last week Harper (age 4) decided that she wanted to kiss Hudson “on the lips” instead of just on the cheek. She proposed the idea as we were all eating breakfast. “Can I kiss Hudson on the lips?” she asked, her expression filled with childlike innocence.

Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about Psalm 119:37: "Turn away my eyes from looking at worthless things, and revive me in your way."God asks us to meditate upon things that are true, right, noble, pure, excellent, lovely and praise-worthy (see Philippians 4:8).  But in today&rsq

A Glorious Invitation

The Truth about Flirting

by the setapartgirl Team

Flirting - it is such a common, accepted practice. Many people would even say it is a perfectly fine and sometimes necessary way of relating to the opposite sex.
