My Deep Sleep

Our contributor Rajeev has graciously allowed us to feature his writing with our readers. Stay tuned for more contributors in the future! This article was originally posted on Jeevo Music.

In the beginning, God created both man and woman.  He created the man first, but was thinking of the woman at the same exact time.  Creating the man first does not mean the man is more important – as some cultures and people would like to believe.  God created the man with specific voids.  Man needed God.  Man needed to work.  Man was alone.  Man needed something more.  Man was not satisfied with what he saw – the land, the garden, the animals, the sun, the moon – these were all great – but it did not quite seem whole.

The creation story happens before “the fall.”  This means when God said “It is not good for man to be alone,” He is revealing His profound intention.  Shalom.  Peace.  Reconciliation.  Between man and woman. Continue reading “My Deep Sleep”

I first met Jennifer Sosa at a wedding in 2010 where she scurried around dressed in black, taking photos of the guests and wedding party during the reception. I never really understood the artistry of wedding photographers until I saw the photos she had taken uploaded onto social media. One of the photos I remember most was of the bride and groom in the reflection of water she found on site at the church. I was so used to the staged photography you see time and time again, and I had no idea photographers were “allowed” to experiment on someone’s wedding day. Her portfolio has grown and her style has become more defined since then. It’s hard to keep track of which city she’s in because her talents have her traveling for work often. The fact that she’s hilarious and down-to-earth is another reason to love this woman. From magazines, collaborations, and real-life events, you’ll see the way she paints her world when you visit her beautiful website. Continue reading “Promo Tuesday with Jennifer Sosa”

Questions to Ask Before Walking Down the Aisle

We’re doing a series on dating and relationships. Join the conversation! Are there any specific topics you’d like us to write about? (This article was originally written in December of 2015 for Project Inspired, a website that encourages Christian teenage girls all over the world. Thank you for reading!)

So you’ve found the one you want to spend the rest of your life with. You have similar interests, you both love the Lord and you’re head over heels for your guy. What more do you need to know before you walk down the aisle?

A lot, actually. Just like a job interview, an employer would want to know that his or her prospective employee is properly qualified to fill the position.

Yes, it can be awkward to ask things you don’t really feel you have the right to know, but if you’re truly going to spend the rest of your lives together, there are some things you should inquire about in order to start off on the right foot. Premarital counseling will help with some of these, but not every couple goes though an intensive session that uncovers possible conflict-causing topics. You can ask these over dinner, during a walk at your favorite park or over the phone if that seems to cause less pressure and anxiety.
