"I prayed for you." What a sentence to hear. What an even better sentence to get to say. What a feeling to get to experience God's faithfulness firsthand through the person that He has designed to be your partner, your leader, your helpmate, and your friend. This is why I pray for you.

These are some of my prayers for you:

I pray for your heart for the Lord.

I pray you continuously seek Him out with a passion that is only for Him.

I pray that nothing hinders or comes before your time with Him and time spent in His word.

I pray that your love for the Lord is so much larger and more vast than any love you could ever have for me.

I pray that it is as constant as a broken human can love in a steadfast manner.

I pray that you have such a deep, intimate relationship with the Father, and it is evident in how you live your life, how you serve people and love them.

I pray that you seek out time with Him before time doing anything else.

I pray that your love for the Lord would be reflected in how you love me and our future family.

* * *

I also pray for how you will lead our family.

I pray that you will guide our family close to the Lord and exemplify our Heavenly Father's love to our children.

I pray that you will encourage us in our walk with Christ, guide us to a closer relationship with Him, and pray for us.

* * *

I pray for the days that you are enduring and enjoying and the lessons you are learning and experiencing.

I pray that these days will mold you into the man that I get to marry one day.

I pray that you serve the Lord with a joyful heart and will continuously do so.

* * *

I pray that you are so unashamed of your excitement and praise for the Lord, and I pray that you share it so blissfully with everyone you come in contact with.

I pray for God's peace to cover you like a wave, and I pray for you to walk in that every day.

* * *

I pray that you share your struggles with me and that you lean on me.

I pray for that you have an abundance of humility and an overwhelming amount of kindness.

I pray that you speak with wisdom that comes only from the Lord, not from men.

* * *

I pray that our relationship would seek the Lord before we seek each other.

I pray we would hold each other accountable, encourage each other, lay our burdens on one another, share our joys with each other, and, simply said, love one another.

* * *

If I were to simply put a prayer for our marriage into one sentence, I would say that I pray our marriage seeks to glorify our God.

I love you. I am constantly praying for you. I am so excited to see how the Lord is going to work through our marriage. I have prayed for you and prayed for you, and I will continue to pray for you.

The Lord is so faithful, and I can't wait to get to experience another example of this truth.

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

Scrolling through Twitter this week had me rolling on the floor laughing as I read some of the hilarious tweets from ladies who, whether in a relationship or not, shared reactions to the news that PlayStation 5 is on its way

As this "buy your boyfriend a PS5" joke takes off across the internet, let's just say, there are a few things your BF should be doing before dropping $499 on the new gaming system — or, if the tweets are real for some, before you buy it for him as a gift.

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.

30256

When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

Two of my favorite things in life are reading and books. Obviously, they go hand-in-hand. In my life, I've realized that there is nothing better than learning about the current world or getting fully immersed in another world. Reading can inspire, teach, and entertain you.

For me, the feeling of opening a book and smelling that fresh book smell can't compete with anything else.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.

I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.

We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."

Throughout quarantine, something that a lot of us picked up on was working out. With all the free time, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to work on that "dream bod" you've been wanting for years, or to just feel good about yourself.

A common way to stay motivated and keep yourself on-task is to follow fitness influencers on various platforms. For some people, yes, this can be a healthy and helpful way to keep your drive. In other cases, however, this can do more harm than good.
