I know what all of you have wanted from me is a blog series on dating.
But now that I’m engaged, I wanted to share some things I’ve learned in hopes that I can help those who are single or dating, particularly those in high school but also those outside of high school.
It will be a week-long series that will explore five different questions/thoughts/topics in dating that we don’t talk about a whole lot in the Church when it comes to dating. A lot of time is dedicated to discussing marriage but little time is given to the days and weeks and months leading up to that special day (the wedding day) that kicks off the marriage process.
I call it “Refocused Romance” for a couple reasons:
- It’s the first catchy name I came up with.
- It sounds awesome and intriguing.
- I want us to refocus the conversation we have surrounding dating and relationships, particularly in the high school/college realm.
For those of you that don’t know, I love high school kids. That age group is perhaps my favorite ministry setting. I want to speak into their lives as they navigate the waters that are dating and relationships and give them something different to hear that will actually apply to the issues they’re facing, not just “don’t have sex” and “maybe you should wait until college.”
So starting Monday, we’ll dive in. I’d love for this to be an interactive experience. I’d love to hear your criticisms and complaints about my thoughts, and if you agree, I’d love to hear from you too!
Can’t wait to see how this goes!
