Pastors Gerald Hiestand and Jay Thomas give us a paradigm–shifting view of purity and relationships—a view that accounts for the biblical evidence and helps us guard against unnecessary heartache.
Considering the sex–crazed, hook–up based culture we live in—not to mention the ever–climbing divorce rate—it’s clear that we need a better understanding of sex, dating, and relationships.
I have a friend who has pet goats and they are delightful. My first nubian doe, who was dehorned, climbed the pen that had always kept her in to charge through the yard and attempt to attack a friends pit bull that my friend left in her pick-up cab.

Something about a community of women coming together to create a collective homage to lost love (and kind of a giant Fuck You) made me realize I wasn’t resigned to a lifetime of refreshing my ex’s tagged photos on Instagram, instead I could actually make something out of my pain.
The goal of the project is to “challenge the rituals of today’s modern romance and create safe, judgment free spaces for women/womxn to share their dating experiences using the healing tools of art and writing.” I talked to Sara and Vanessa about It’s Not Personal and got some sage wisdom on understanding the Rubik’s Cube that is dating in 2017.
