Lent starts today, indeed it does. I always participated in it since my mom told me to as a child. But although in college, it was much harder to do and I switched it from giving up something to taking in something positive. For me, that’s what worked for me at the time.  Now. I…

Beloved – Week 6: About That Purity Thing…

GET IT OUT: I failed and resisted to write on this (well 2 weeks ago’s) devotional. Sex – what a topic. The biggest sin to most Christians. Be honest? My honesty is that in general I hate sex. I do not get the pleasure that other people get from it. After being raped twice, that…
