    I’m 26 & just had to walk out of a relationship that i was too unwise / conflicted to continue in good faith. I feel like i’m just now learning what guarding your heart means beyond avoiding sexual debauchery. I appreciate your perspective here

    I want to share my own goals about family with my dates, and i want to know what my dates’ goals are, once we know that we get along. But you’re right, milling over wedding details / our kids’ names is presuming too much when she & i are not engaged / expecting

      Wow, honestly, I just love your YouTube channel and I’ve to say that you are so nice, so lovely. May GOD bless you beyond measures! 🙏🏾

      I’ve watched plenty of videos about being a Christian girl, and often I do feel some kind of resistance... But with you, it never happens. You seem so nice and you’re so gentle, pure and you speak wisely and in an understanding way. Never judging. You’re an example of being a godly woman, in my eyes. Truly, thank you and Thanks be to GOD for allowing me to discover your channel ! :)

        Kissing? A peck on the cheek? I suppose that's okay (so long as it's in a public place - never spend time alone together in the same room/building)

          My rule is this: Don't do anything with this other person that would make it awkward for you to be at their wedding if you broke up. You should be able to look their spouse in the eye and tell them, without guilt, that you are happy for them.

                  So I fell in love with a catholic girl, but I couldn't get a positive reply. We have been friends for about 6 months but when I asked her out and expressed my feelings she just started to ignore me. She didn't even give me a no, just started avoiding me which is harsh. So many people told me that an atheist and a Christian can't get along but our friendship over the past 6 months was extraordinary. I was even ready to convert to Christianity because of her. I just wish I had never met her.

                    I watched this video when you first uploaded it and at that time I commented that I loved your video but that I disagreed with some things. Now watching it again, I’ve since broken up with the guy I was dating at the time and realized that I should really be taking the advice you’ve given here. So again, thank you so much for this video, love you!

                          i needed this video SO much. i did not have sex with my ex but did connect with him in other ways you talked about in this video. i would have never thought to even have boundaries emotionally and spiritually. it’s helped me understand some of my struggles post breakup. THANK YOU

                                  I believe that if there are so, so many things you have to be careful NOT to do, why not just wait for God’s go-ahead and be sure?

                                  There was a similar situation with a friend of mine. She’s a Christian and is dating a guy. She told me that their pastor had prayed over the relationship. I was mildly confused and unsure on how to advice her bc I understand that everyone’s relationship with God is different—but shouldn’t there be some consistency across the board? What if every teen starts dating someone now without asking God for direction and defend themselves with the “conviction card”?

                                  I’m honestly confused because I see so many young people like me get into a relationship for reasons I’m not sure and then they try to tempt me and say “well how else are you going to know the person you’re going to marry?” And I feel old fashioned when I tell them I’ll pray for the will of God. Gosh, this topic is controversial and so many of my friends have questions concerning this area.

                                  But the adults in my church shut it down with the “you’re too young and you have no reason to be dating in the first place” and the “pray for the will of God and then talk to the elders to get approval” and the “Is it scriptural???”

                                  I personally don’t want to mess up my life with all that drama that comes with teen dating. I’d like to stay focused, finish my studies, let God use me to impact lives (although still praying for a husband in the background) THEN cross that bridge when I get to it. There’s A LOT you can learn about relationships without having to get into one. I’d just rather be on the safe side of things. But of course, I’m still growing and understanding that God is a lot more... I want to say “unconventional” than the Christian community thinks. It’s important to be careful with that, though—I don’t mean “unconventional” like progressive, but not tied down to religion and rules humans made up and call Christianity. It really varies for everyone, but should never conflict in anyway with the Scripture. That’s a big one for me, that it never conflicts with Scripture.

                                  But I can actually relate with you though. There are a lot of things God tells me that I know my church leaders won’t agree with. So I keep it to myself, having in mind that place in the Bible that talks about not causing others to stumble because you personally aren’t convicted with that one thing (e.g. God may allow you to drink wine once in a while but doing it my cause your best friend, who’s not there yet, to stumble and sear their conscience). You get me?

                                  Oop. I spoke to much, lol 😂🤦🏾‍♀️

                                      Just to clarify, my opinion... I would say it’s a good thing to study at least once in a while, cuz then you can see how he/she interprets things, and their perspective in what your reading. For example, if he/she is constantly taking verses out of context, ur gonna wanna know about it. But I would agree to not just do it with him/her every time you go into the word, or pray. But this was very helpful! Thanks!

                                          I don't think most Christians have to worry about relationships, since the churches keep the genders separated. My church just had a single women's luncheon....It would be nice to get rejected at least...we can all fantasize.

Ain't it funny god never tells this to other animals. Lol. Just have as much sex and get intimate with as many people as you can, otherwise how will you truly know them?

                                                      Thank you so much, I went through a breakup 4 months ago and it was so very hard to heal and honestly I’m still healing. I didn’t understand why it hurt so much but you’re so right it’s so very difficult to heal when you had that spiritual connection you just wanna keep running back to them and asking for prayer and advice and study the Bible with them when you know it’s not God’s timing or will for that rn. Thank you for using your wisdom and opening my eyes on where I fell short guarding my heart ( including ya always talking about the future and marriage). It felt so pure but also I felt convicted and I ignored it in those times cause I didn’t even think of that spiritual connection. Love you Becca❤️

                                                            1. Save your first kiss till the day of your marriage.


                                                            2. Save your virginity till the night of your Marriage


                                                            3. Dont stay in a room alone with an oposite sex. If it is not your cousin or sister, or mother.

Keep up the amazing advice from God xx

                                                                              • Christina

                                                                                You weren't rambling. i think dating is a modern made-up deal that often tries to mimic marriage without being marriage. So, it's incredibly important to define and adhere to boundaries while still getting a solid idea of whom you're dating (compatibility in goals, values, relationship with the Lord etc).

                                                                                • Annie Cott

                                                                                          With kissing, I believe this is a very deep intimate thing that joins you both together. I have heard of many prostitutes who only refuse to kiss because it connects them emotionally.
                                                                                          What you have said is so beautiful, thank you for sharing and I do agree with you and this is such an important message.
                                                                                          But you are opening becoming soul tied by kissing, no doubt. I would like to hear other people’s thoughts?

                                                                                            So question for another video maybe. How does a guy find out a girl's view on headship? I believe that to be something important He has set up in the relationship (not sexist, He sets the man up as the provider and the one He ultimately holds responsible in a relationship, this is why He asked for Adam in the Garden and not Eve). I'm trying to figure out a way to ask that without being super awkward about it.

                                                                                              Have you believed in your heart that Jesus Christ died on the cross for your sins, was buried, and rose from the grave? You must believe that Jesus is the one who paid for your sins and rose again to be saved from eternal damnation and instead go to heaven

                                                                                              "For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one." 1 John 5:7
