“When I wait you strengthen my heart.” --Psalm 27:14

Find A Man Who Loves The Lord
Christina Sharp

Too often the most given piece of marriage advice is to “marry your best friend." Sure, this can be an important factor, but it is not the most important factor. The most important piece of marriage advice that I received was “marry a man who loves The Lord more than he loves you." This statement could not hold truer, or be more important when looking for the man you want to marry.

By marrying a man who loves The Lord more than you, you will have someone who is constantly leading you closer to God. You will have someone to worship and pray with you. More importantly, you will have someone who is willing to pray for you. Someone who will help you to strengthen your faith, and remind you that God is there to satisfy the parts of your heart that your partner cannot. You will have someone to hold you accountable. By having these things, you are able to serve God not only together, but on a deeper level. My personal relationship with God has increased so much from the time that I began dating my now husband, and this is what a healthy and God-fearing relationship should do for you. By serving God together we are also able to love each other better and have a different perspective on ways to make our relationship stronger.

“Because He bends down to listen I will pray as long as I have breath!” --Psalm 116:2

If you’re married, dating or even single, here are some prayers that you can pray for your partner or future partner to keep God as the foundation of your relationship. Pray that he would cherish me, his wife or future wife, as Christ loves the church (Ephesians 5:25), that he would love God with all of his heart, soul, mind and strength (Mark 12:30), that God will instruct him and teach him in the way he should go (Psalm 32:8), that God would protect him physically, mentally and spiritually (Psalm 28: 7-9, Psalm 41, John 17:15, 2 Thessalonians 3:3).

To the ladies who are still waiting to find a God-fearing man, it is not your job to catch a man -- it is only your job to serve God until He leads a man to you. Grow your personal relationship with God and complete the tasks that He has prepared for you. Psalm 27:14 states, “When I wait you strengthen my heart.” During this time God will strengthen your heart and reveal Himself to you in ways that you never imagined. All that is asked of you is to remain faithful to Him and His word, but if you feel your faith wavering remember the following verse. “When I said, ‘my foot is slipping,’ your love, O Lord, supported me. When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought joy to my soul.” Psalm 94:18-19. God will deliver us from all things, so cling to Him and do not settle.

Being a pharmacy technician never held as many risks as it does now. Exposure too hazardous conditions were little to none, and garbing up was only conducted in IV compounding. But, now, in order to give nurses the medications they need to help their patients, they need us, pharmacy technicians.

TikTok was banned by the president, but Instagram is here with its newest feature called Reel. Many of us are still wondering why TikTok was being banned in the first place. Was it all the dangerous TikTok trends? It was because of a security concern, but not in the way you might think.

TikTok is owned by Dancebyte, which is a China-owned company. Basically, just like any other app, TikTok collects the user's data. The main question to ask yourself when investing in any app or marketing tools who will be owning my data? So yes, China currently owns all the TikTok user's data worldwide.

I've always been a huge Disney villain fan — whether it was for their cryptic one-liners, enviable outfits, or sidekick banter. Some of the most iconic lines from cinematic history have been said by the characters we love to hate and occasionally dress up as once a year.

The fear-mongering Gaston I now find hilariously cringe-worthy is now charming and oftentimes considered by fans as rightfully justified in his actions. Die-hard fans of the Disney villain fan club claim alternate egos in their favorite evil characters, adopting their hilarious witticisms into everyday life.

Social media is something many of us have been addicted to (whether we want to believe it or not) since the moment we got it. I remember getting Facebook at 10. Instantly I was hooked. I loved being able to share my life with people, a little too much in my opinion, and I loved being able to see how/what other people were doing all the time.

- I have extremely sensitive skin, which is why I have always resorted to a plant-based organic beauty line such as Radha Beauty.

- Radha Beauty won me over years ago when I was looking for organic skincare brands.

- I was so excited to see they launched a new line incorporating USDA organic rosehip oil, so when their PR team sent me some, I could not have been more thrilled.

- After a week of using the products, my face felt as smooth as a baby's, looked more glowy than ever, and even cured some of my summer sunburn.

Radha Beauty isn't just a best-selling beauty brand on Amazon — it's a USDA-certified organic beauty brand I live by, and anyone who knows me knows I am all about holistic wellness.

Typically, it only takes three days for me to tell if a skin product is working or not because I have extremely sensitive skin. It's also why I have always stuck by plant-based organic beauty lines such as Radha Beauty.

I have definitely had my fair share of breakups. I broke up with my high school sweetheart my second semester of college (he was cheating on me), I had a breakup with another guy I thought I was going to marry, and others in between. Regardless of whether you're the one doing the dumping or being dumped, breakups can HURT.

I am not in any way any sort of medical expert. These are just some tricks that work for me and have worked for others who also suffer from anxiety. These may not work for everyone, but I do hope these help some people in their fight against anxiety.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?
