If you're a Christian woman out there, a woman who loves the Lord and goes to church, you know that everyone in your church has most definitely preached on saving sex until marriage. Even if you're not Christian, you most definitely know that Christians do not have sex until marriage. At least, that's what the people at church preach about, am I right? As a Christian, you do get made fun of or may even have comments thrown at you for not being sexually intimate with the person you are dating. Yes, it sucks. Do you care about what other people think? No. I am speaking for myself, though.

Not going to lie, being a Christian and dating someone who is a Christian is extremely hard. There is temptation; there is that feeling of wanting to be intimate with your significant other and it's really hard to date someone for a year and a half and have only "kissed" that person. ESPECIALLY if you love the freaking crap out of them. IT IS NOT EASY PEOPLE. It was never supposed to be easy, and it will never be easy. What you are feeling is actually super-super normal. (If you are reading this and are a Christian) BUT I do believe that God can give you the strength and courage to get through this dating season with purity, and He will reward you a significant amount if you wait for the Wedding night. God loves sex, and He created it for marriage. Don't believe anything otherwise.

As a Christian woman, we should be practicing what we are mentoring and or preaching to others especially when it comes to this topic. And especially if we expect to help younger girls remain pure for their future. We need to be the example. How do we preach purity to a bunch of middle school girls when we could be becoming numb to messing up in our own relationship? We are part of a church body that takes a stand on purity and believes in purity in relationships and in marriage. By no means are we perfect. That is not what I'm getting at. I just find it extremely disappointing to hear that on fire God loving woman confessing now that they were sexually intimate in their relationship before they got married to their partner. They were completely numb to it, or just keeping it in the dark and not bringing their mistake to light. Whether you are single, dating, or married- there is accountability in the church for a reason; to lift woman up, and to encourage them. Not to judge them. It is time to start stepping up as Christian women, raising the bar, setting the standard high, and being a light to our own generation and for future generations to come.

There is a reason for saving sex until marriage. I challenge you to ask for a better understanding or revelation on this topic. For me personally, I want to see a generation of women strong in their identity, confident in the man they love and will marry by not giving into sexual desires based on fear, identity struggles, temptation, or even lust. Let's get one thing clear here... love is so much more than the physical side of things and marriage is so much more than just having sex. Sex is a gift, and it was intended to be worth the wait. It was intended to be earned and won victoriously over. And if you can't see that now, as being a strong Christian yourself, I can't say that you will be prepared enough to know exactly what you are getting yourself into when it comes to jumping into marriage.

One Indictment, Three Charges, And No Justice For Breonna Taylor

We can't settle for this decision or a system that is fundamentally broken and unequal.

I was so excited to vote in my local primary election in August. I eagerly researched my local candidates, combed the newspaper for profiles and policy positions, and shared infographics on Insta about voting deadlines. I considered myself a keen voter.

Nothing! There is no reason to feel guilty about food and nourishing your body. It's time to make peace with food and stop focusing on the "good" or "bad," "right" or "wrong" because food does not have power over you.

I Sat Down With An Endocrinologist To Ask All My Questions About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

There are so many moving parts of hormonal health, so I went to an expert.

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1 in 10 women. Any woman who has PCOS can attest to the fact that no two cases are the same — there are so many aspects of hormonal health that can impact a woman's reproductive health! For many, PCOS is a trial and error condition, with many doctors' appointments depending on the stage of life the woman is in.

This week I sat down with Dr. Anjanette Tan to get the expert opinion on all my PCOS questions. Dr. Tan is a board-certified endocrinology who's worked in private practices since 2004. She currently works at the Diabetes and Thyroid Center of Fort Worth, one of the largest all-endocrine practices in the area, where she is the managing partner and head of clinical research.

- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.

- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.

- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.

- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.

The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.

As college students, sometimes life can be overwhelming. Four tests in a week and you only passed one of them? I feel that. Days like that, you just need time for yourself. A time where you're nice to yourself and put your own self-care before anything else.

I'll never forget the day that someone told me these words: "Madison, I think you're a good friend to everyone but yourself." I stood there completely in awe of that statement. Before that day, I never really thought about being a friend to myself, and at the time, I didn't really know what it meant. Now, I realize that you can't fully be there for other people unless you're there for yourself, too. You can't show up for others until you're willing to show up for yourself.

Here are five things everyone should learn in order to be a better friend to themselves. These steps are hard, but they're so worth it.
