Don’t stop wit…

Don’t stop with the question, “Is this person a Christian?”

You need to ask a much deeper question than that: “Is this person I am thinking about marrying displaying the character and mind of Christ?” I would look deep into the character of the individual. Make sure he or she loves the Lord with all of their heart, soul, mind and strength. And look for the “markers” that are displaying that love in their lives. (From the web site for the ministry of Dr Gary Smalley)

I really loved this quote and simply had to upload  it for you,

“Just because a…

“Just because a man calls himself a Christian doesn’t mean a thing about his spiritual condition.”

Hitler probably professed to be a nice guy. What really shows a man’s faith is action —not trying to get you into bed until you are both wearing a ring; initiating his own personal relationship with God and encouraging yours as well; and especially holding his feelings back in the relationship to allow God to lead. God’s choice of a mate for you is going to be a godly man, and if you listen, God will tell you through an active prayer life and the counsel of other godly influences whether this is the one He has picked out for you. (Julie Ferwerda, from Crosswalk.com article “9 Lies Women Tell Themselves About Men“)

Personally, I think this is good quote for sisters to keep in their minds especially given the fact that there are more single women in the church than single men. There’s probably a temptation for sisters to rationalise on who a Christian man really is and ignore  the need for a real examination of who the man ‘ on the table’ is.

I hope you find this helpful.

“Would you marr…

“Would you marry you?”

If you need to get your act together, do it before you get engaged. You will be better off, and one day, if you end up getting married, your marriage will reap the benefit of the relational health you bring into it. (David Gudgel, from the book, “Before You Get Engaged”)

You will be pleased to hear that Victoria Hangout’s second meet Up was a success. Six people in total had fun chatting, getting to one another. As expected, it was fun, laid back, open,  light hearted, no pressure and enjoyed by all.

Each person ended the day with an extra friend.

Hopefully, you’ll be able to say the same of yourself soon,

Hope to see you at one of the Hangouts 🙂

After a thoroug…

After a thorough survey and research in Adolescent Psychology, Professor William Maxwell concluded:

“Every single juvenile delinquent in prison in Arizona had no relationship with his father. So women have a duty to choose a mate who is going to be a father. Please.”

A male Christian friend emailed me this quote last night. He titled it ” Quote for single ladies”.

Please share both the quote and your thoughts.

Have a good week.

Catford Hangout Event of June 3rd 2014

Another good friendship-building opportunity with a total of four people turning up! It was a good balance of two men and two women in total. We had one visitor coming all the way from North London! We had a really good chat  on a range of issues both about being single but also about  recommendations of what could be done about the issues raised. We also talked about things non-single. It was a discussion of what interested individuals and didn’t necessarily have to do with Single issues as you would expect from a healthy discussion. Above all, we made friends, met another single we had never met before. At the end of the day, each of us had made an extra friend, which is what ‘Hangouts4Singles’ is all about!!

The event underscored it’s purpose, “A friendship-building opportunity/platform for Single Christians.”

I hope you can make it to one of the coming events in the future,

Regards.
