The Author

Welcome! My name is Alyssa J Howard, and I am so glad you are here! A few years ago, God put something on my heart… a desire to write and to share with others all of the amazing things He was stirring within me. I spent most of my life as a Christian… but it wasn’t until college that God truly got a hold of my life and placed in me a passion to learn and grow in Him. Since then, God has taught me what it truly means to live a Holy Spirit-led life.

What Does the Bible Say About Dating?

One clear example of this is the concept of dating. People didn't "date" in biblical times. Marriage wasn't about finding true love, rather it was about family lineage and ...

4 Ways That Modern Dating Has Ruined Our View of Marriage (Part 2)

In the first part of this series, we introduced the idea that modern dating has ruined our view of marriage. We treat dating as an audition for marriage, date as many people as we can to "learn" about what we want in a spouse, and we walk away if the relationship no longer works. And while dating may seem like a necessary means to an end, it definitely has its flaws and teaches us some bad habits ...

4 Ways That Modern Dating Has Ruined Our View of Marriage (Part 1)

Modern dating has ruined our view of marriage. This may seem like a bold statement, but it's true. I've seen it with my own eyes. The Bible is fairly silent on the topic of dating because dating wasn't culturally a "thing" when it was written. But marriage was definitely discussed. We are taught throughout Scripture that marriage was God's idea. Man is supposed to leave his father and mother and ...
