When you are dating someone, it is important for Christ to be the center of that relationship. It doesn’t matter if you are in middle school, high school, college or beyond, having a Christ-centered relationship is super important. Here are a few verses to pray to strengthen your relationship, protect it, and to give you hope for the future.

1 Corinthians 12: 4-7 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. 1-Corinthians-13-4-8

Ephesians 4:2 Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, baring with one another in love.

John 15:12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.

1 John 3:18 Let us not love with words or tongue, but with actions and in truth. (AKA, actions speak louder than words!)

James 1:19 My dear brothers and sisters, be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to get angry.

Proverbs 14:29 The one who is slow to anger has great understanding, but the one who has a quick temper exalts folly.

1 Corinthians 13:5 [Love] keeps no record of wrongs.
1 Thessalonians 5:11 Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as your are doing.

Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

I hope that these verses help encourage and strengthen your relationship! Like I said earlier, keeping Christ the center of your relationship is crucial if you want the relationship to succeed!

Most of us girls are at that age, beginning high school, starting to drive, etc., and we can’t forget dating!  First dates are a big deal, and I know I’m not the only one that can’t control their nerves when asked out on a date!  Whether you’re secretly crushing on your classmate or making plans with your soon-to-be boyfriend, here are a few quick dos and don’ts for your date!Chelsea Crockett - Dating

  • DON’T be too serious.  Everyone wants to have a little fun!  Make sure you loosen up and don’t be nervous!  I’m sure he’s just as nervous as you are, so keep the conversation alive and going.
  • DON’T bring up past relationships!  If you’re thinking about an ex, maybe you’re not ready to move on just yet.
  • DO be yourself!  Don’t try to be someone you’re not.  If you’re not yourself from the start, then they won’t like you for the real YOU!
  • DO be open to creative date ideas!  Just because your guy’s not the basic “dinner and a movie” type doesn’t mean he can’t come up with a sweet, cute date for the two of you.  Usually those turn out to be the ones you remember!
  • DO dress appropriate for your date.  Just because others girls don’t, doesn’t mean you need to follow in their footsteps.  Wearing a nice outfit will show you have respect for yourself!

Next time you’re asked on a date, remember we’ve all been there!  Keep these tips in mind and you should be just fine!

Good luck! – Chelsea

Dating in the 21st Century: What’s Your Opinion?

Okay, so picture this. A boy pulls up to your house, walks up your sidewalk, and knocks on your door. Your dad answers the door, the boy shakes his hand, and you greet him with a smile. You take his arm and walk to his car, where he opens the door for you. He takes you to a nice restaurant, where you two have a lovely conversation about your likes, dislikes, hopes and dreams. After the meal, he pays the bill and takes you home, where he walks you to the door and you part with a warm smile and a “goodnight.” This routine is repeated a few times and may lead to courtship, and then possibly marriage. Does this scenario sound totally foreign to you or like something out of an old movie? This is what your grandparents called dating.download (1)

Isn’t it crazy how drastically the action of dating has morphed over the years? Now dating is considered texting someone at all hours of the day, and making them your “Man Crush Monday”, and posting cute pictures of you two on Instagram. Staying in and watching movies is a typical date, and going to nice dinners is reserved for birthdays or your “six month anniversary”. We put so much attention on “relationship statuses” on Facebook and Twitter “subtweets”. If we said any of these phrases to our grandparents, they would have no idea what we were talking about, and probably think you were talking in some kind of secret code or language. So, I am curious, what do you wish was different about our dating culture? Do you long for the dates like the one above, or do you enjoy our version of dating?

I know that sometimes I get frustrated with society’s definition of dating, and the expectations that is put on it. Sometimes, society’s view seems so shallow, does it not? Here is what I think, straight up and to the point: Don’t fall into the trap of conforming to any set standard just because it is what society says you should do. We need to set our own relationship standards based on something that doesn’t trend or move, and that is the standards that God has set. Don’t let your views be compromised by popular opinion.

So, like I said, I am curious to hear your point of view. Comment below and tell me your thoughts, because I want to know what you think!

Ready for a Boyfriend…or Nah?

A lot goes into a relationship.  Unfortunately, it isn’t as easy as some may think.  It’s important to make sure you and your significant other are ready and mature enough before jumping into things.  You want the best relationship possible, right?!  Although I am no expert on relationships, I do have a few pointers to see if you’re ready for a boyfriend….or nah!

  1. If you feel like you need a boyfriend to make you feel complete, then you are not ready. You need to find out who are truly are before relying on another person. Knowing yourself is the first step to being happy.
  2. Sexual relationships are the wrong kind of relationships. A relationship should be based off a sense of friendship, making the other happy, and truly loving them for them! If your relationship is only based on sex, then you’re in it for the wrong reasons.
  3. It’s important to accept people for who they are. If you start to pick out everything that is wrong about someone, then you will eventually make yourself miserable in the relationship. Everyone has their flaws! No one is perfect!
  4. If you feel the need to always have a guy, then you need to take a moment and look at yourself. If you’re going from boyfriend to boyfriend, then you are not ready for a relationship. Wait until you find someone that really makes you happy and someone you could see yourself with for a long period of time.
  5. NEVER change who you are for a guy. If you feel the need to change yourself, then move on! There are plenty of fish in the sea. The right guy will come around who likes you for you.

Finding a boyfriend can be tricky, but finding the “one” is even harder!  It’s okay to be cautious when it comes to your next relationship…you want it to be a good one!

I love you all!

Chelsea
