Why Dating is not a Biblical Construct... and What to Do About It
We've all heard it a million times... dating isn't actually in the Bible. We get it, it's not. But, what do you do instead? While the actual dating process isn't in the Bible anywhere, there is plenty within the pages of Scripture about what a man or woman who is following God should look like. There is verse after verse talking about the Sovereignty and Love of God. There are so many principles in God's Word that guide what any relationship between believers should look like. Those things are what we are talking about today and we're weaving them into a specific dating context and how you can overlay so much of Scripture to your dating relationships.

When to Just Shut Up
You like him... he likes you... seems like a dream scenario, right? Should you always go for it, if that's the case? Are there ever times when you still shouldn't say anything? In this week's episode, we're looking at those times when maybe the best thing to do is just shut up and not say anything. Maybe it's not forever, it's just for right now... we're looking at how to speak up after you've decided not to too. Also... apologies for the sound issues w/Bethany's microphone! It decided to be annoying this week and we didn't know it until we were done!

Y'all, we're calling an audible this week! This is not what we originally had on the schedule... we just recorded it this week even. But, this was probably one of the most vulnerable and unguarded conversations we've ever had on this show. We're taking all of the filters off and talking about where we both are in our singleness right now... what we're thinking, what's hard, what we're wrestling with, and where we see it going. I know it will be relatable and hopefully encouraging to you guys too!

This is a common struggle for all of us! We seek to get our validation, worth, and joy from the people around us rather than from God, Himself.
