Remember, Ladies, Thomas Rhett & Lauren Akins Found God Before They Found Love

You're calling their relationship "#goals" but a love like theirs is not where you're not looking.

Assuming that since you opened this article, you know Thomas Rhett. And since you know Thomas Rhett, you know his wife Lauren. Since you know Thomas AND Lauren, you then know their amazingly adorable two children. AND you probably are in love with them. Well, at least I am in love with them.

Well, let's talk that.

You looove Thomas Rhett and you looove Lauren Akins and you reallly want to be just like them.

Well, first off, don't compare your life to theirs, especially your relationship.

People say all day that they are goals, yet most don't see that their love for Jesus truly is remarkable and is what should make them "goals." People only see the outer of their lives, yet their inner love for Christ is the most important.

But you can find love like theirs. You can find genuine, God-fearing love.

If you don't want that kind of love, cool (you probably won't like this article).

But if you do, it most likely is not found where you are looking.

God-fearing love is most likely not found with the guy you just went home from the bar with drunk. It is most likely not found with the girl you just woke up next to and you have no idea who she is or how you got here. (Now, God works miracles and it could be found that way, but ya know, stats are low on that one).

A true love is about sacrifice. It is about giving and never expecting to receive. The kind of love I want and pray for it that love when you pray for the other. Genuine prayer for your life partner. A love that lasts is a love that has laughter and joy. It is a love that when hard times come — because they will come — you two sail together not apart. Because sailing apart is never in God's plan.

He says that TWO is better than one. TWO as in, two people who look to the Lord before they look to their other.

This kind of love people say is "goals," yet they aren't looking for the same love.

GIRLS, there are guys out there who respect you for you and not your body. That put your needs before theirs on a daily basis.

GUYS, there are girls that want to know you, for you. Not the letters you wear or the kinda of style you wear.

You're never going to find that sweet, sweet true love of loving another believer until you begin to pray for God to lead you to him/her.

You are never going to grow in your relationship if you only want your significant other to change and you want to stay the same.

Love like Christ loves.

Be the Church and change the culture.

Change the marriage statistics.

Love like Christ and find someone who loves as Jesus does.

P.S. I looove Thomas Rhett

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

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.
