I wrote this piece because I want people to get married and I am an advocate for marriage. This post is for everyone, but it is directed at my peers. So if you are 5 years older than me or 5 years younger than me, I am talking to you. This post includes quite personal stories from my life. Context: Around October I was confused as to how to move my love life forward. Even if I have to wait 10 years I was not going to make the mistake of giving someone that title, only to have my heart pulled out of my chest, tried on and then returned like an ASOS package.
Essentially I was just promising myself that this time I would be serious, if I saw a red flag I would duck out, if the Holy Spirit said no I would listen. One had a child, one did not, one was a believer and the other was NOT. Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. This portion of scripture is talking specifically about marriage and it clearly says you should not MARRY an unbeliever.
In my world Christian life dating leads to marriage, therefore most people logically advise that you should not even date unbelievers and to be clear, I completely agree and believe this.

In the past, this has been and is not limited to:. Any time the church had an event going on, my parents would tell me not to make plans either that whole weekend, or that whole week. The farther out from the date, the more time on the calendar seemed to be unavailable. More often than I should have, my answer would be a little snarky.
As I got older, I began to make plans anyway, assuring my parents that I would be available to help the church set up. After all, if you have twelve active hours in a day, then you can do ten one-hour engagements with time in between to drive. Please, listen to your parents.

The Preacher’s Son
M y dentist has Austin in a bubble. All the familiar landmarks of the Texas capital are shrunken and encased in a souvenir snow globe for everyone to see. It reminds me of my life: I grew up as a pastor’s kid. In many ways I lived in a bubble. The church members could look in on my world at any time. Everyone knew me, everyone felt free to give advice, and everyone made sure my parents knew exactly what I’d done.
Instrinsic vs extrinsic motivation, combined with the normal realities of adolescence, temptation, and response to social pressure. I’m not a pastor’s kid, but I am.
By: Vanderbloemen August 22, I am the daughter of a pastor. If you’re a pastor’s kid, whether your parents are still in ministry or not, people still look at you with a certain standard or even certain stereotypes. He explains how they are typically left between a rock and a hard place, between being considered rebels or being overly legalistic which leads to identity issues and scrutiny.
People tend to often unfairly project these expectations on children of pastors. So how do these expectations compare to what pastor’s kids are actually going through? They feel that the love of the church and the church community is more important than being there for them. He also reminded me often that I was important to him. This helped reassure me that I was a priority in my dad’s life, and that he would carve out time away from ministry to give me the gift of his time.
We are all imperfect sinners. It’s not fair to expect them to be perfect. It’s best to treat them as normal kids, expecting great things but allowing for mistakes and failures. The fear of making a mistake will only deter them from pursuing dreams and fulfilling their potential.
