I Want to Hear from You! (3-Question Survey)

Hi friends! A ton of ideas have been brewing in my mind recently about the Tizzie's Tidbits of Truth ministry, so I created this super short survey below to get your feedback on TTT. The survey will close on October 31, 2022, so please fill it out by then. Thanks so much for taking the time to do this! I look forward to seeing your feedback!

Dear Single Girl, Get Outside Your Comfort Zone

Single Girl, I don’t judge you for any excuse that you’ve made in a desperate attempt to stay inside your comfort zone. But I want you to know that it’s really challenging to meet guys (and do other important things--life's not all about guys) if you stay inside your comfort zone. Please don’t miss the opportunities in front of you simply because they might make you feel a bit un-comfy.

Dear Single Girl, Consuming Sexual Content Won’t Satisfy Your Longing for Sex

Dear Single Girl, I see you over there—watching Redeeming Love as you curl up in a ball on your couch with a bag of popcorn in one hand and a can of La Croix in the other. Last month, you promised yourself that you wouldn’t watch this movie because it’s a bit risqué. But that was before your boyfriend broke up with you. Before your best friend told you that she’s engaged. Before you realized that you’re 21 and have never been kissed. [Or insert other scenario that has caused a wave of indescribable loneliness to overtake you.] All you wanted was a little pick-me-up in the love department.

Real Recovery on The Boundless Show

Hi y'all, I'm super excited to share a podcast link with you for today's post! It's for The Boundless Show! This podcast is part of Boundless, a young adult ministry of Focus on the Family. For the Culture Segment of this podcast (which is about 30 minutes into this episode, wink wink), I discuss my journey through anorexia and my journey through recovery with host Lisa Anderson. From a typical day in the life of an anorexic to my current relationship with food, we covered a variety of eating disorder- and recovery-related topics.

Why It’s Normal (and Okay!) to Look Forward to Having Sex

I think one of the hardest things for a Christian girl to accept is her desire for sex. Or maybe it’s just me. I wish I could say that I’m looking forward to marriage because I want to have a lifelong best friend or because I’m ready to love and be loved by my soulmate.  But really, I’m just looking forward to having sex. And if you’re trying to follow God’s design for sex by saving it for marriage, I’m guessing that you’re looking forward to it too.

What Happened When I Doubted God Would Do Far More Abundantly Beyond All I That Asked or Thought

Yes, from Day One, He had been walking with me through the book publication journey—from compiling my messy thoughts in a Word document that eventually turned into a manuscript to submitting book proposals and query letters to signing a book contract to preparing Real Recovery for publication to becoming an officially published author with reviews on Amazon and speaking opportunities in churches and schools. Somehow, though, none of that seemed to matter to me when I thought about the fact that I wasn’t speaking at national and international conferences…or writing for magazines with thousands of readers…or having book signings at every bookstore across the United States. The opportunities that God had provided thus far didn’t feel like enough. I didn’t feel like enough.

To the Girl Who Has a Hardcore Crush

Have you experienced that intense nervousness when you talk with the guy you’re crushing on? Then there's the sudden panic that sets in during the chat because you’re not sure how to respond to what he says. And then, of course, there's that delayed panic that you feel after the chat because you’re not sure how he felt about your conversation. Etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. This is the life of a girl who has a hardcore crush.

3 Characteristics of Meaningful Conversations

Perhaps I’m not very fond of surface-level conversations because, as an introvert, I appreciate connecting with friends on a deep level—like one-on-one meetings at cute coffee shops and after-church conversations that last until the pastor turns out the lights in the sanctuary. Although big gatherings can be intimidating to me, small gatherings are my happy place. I enjoy getting to know people better by asking good questions and by giving good answers to their questions. There are a few characteristics—encouraging, transparent, and Christ-centered—that I believe are essential for having meaningful conversations. Here’s why.
