Growing up in the church, I have always heard it stressed that God needs to be the center of any relationship, specifically those with significant others. Often times I saw it described as a triangle: God is the top point of the triangle, and you and your significant other are the two bottom points. All this to say, God is what brings you together and holds you together. He is the key to any successful relationship.

For the longest time, I thought that I understood what it meant to have God at the center of your relationship, but I've learned that it can be easy to let that slip on the back burner. So to save you the trouble, I've come up with a few tips that you can use to make sure that God is in the center of your relationship.

The first tip that I want to share with you is prayer.

I cannot express to you how significant or important praying with and for your significant other is. It is one of the most intimate things that you can do with your partner. Pray about anything and everything! Pray about the relationship, give control over to Him, and surrender it all; pray about the problems that arise, thank Him for the good times, and pray for each other in anything that you both face.

The Bible says that "Where two or more are gathered, there I will be also."

Praying is a direct line of communication with God, and when you and your significant other pray with and for each other, it is a great way to make sure that God is staying in the center of your relationship.

The second tip is to talk about God.

Make an effort to bring God into your conversations. Talk about where you are in your walk with the Lord so that you will be able to hold each other accountable. Talking about God and spiritual concepts will help each of you grow and change your perspectives.

And finally, read the Bible together.

Keeping God's Word in your heart helps remind you of the love and promises that God has for you. Having bible study together is a great way for you two to learn more about God together. It can be good for conversation and learning verses together will help you along the way in your relationship.

All in all, putting God in the center of your relationship is one of the most important things that you can do for it. While these few tips are helpful, they aren't the only thing that you can do.

If this is something that you struggle with, talk with God and your significant other to find ways to put God in the center of your relationship. Ask God for the strength and will to put Him in the center of your relationship.

You won't regret it.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
