Ladies: Don’t give up on your dream man.

I have a word of encouragement for all the female readers and subscribers of my blog.

Spring is here. Hopefully that’s good news on the Vitamin D front and for general energy and outdoor activities.

But then there’s the other kind of ‘Spring Fever’ and crazy stuff like “ring by spring”. Depending on your perspective, some of it might feel like a downer. For example:

Some of your girlfriends are posting pictures of their latest excursions with their boyfriends; Some friends are changing their facebook statuses to ‘In a relationship’ or ‘Married’ or ‘I’m hot and you’re not.’

Whatever the deal, it’s time to take a moment to get perspective.

Just when you lost all hope on the charisma, charm, and chivalry of single men and considered giving up on your dream dude…

there is hope!

As much as folks want to knock online services like Match.com and E: Harmony…

Consider how awkward things were during the age of “video dating” or whatever you call it.

This is scary, funny, and everything in between.

Enjoy…I think.

And laugh. It’s good to laugh.

    The guys that make lists of what they don’t want are hilarious and offensive, but I loved the guy that was “interested in most data processing”. Because there is nothing a girl wants more than a guy that loves data processing.

  2. They all have so many charming qualities; is it possible to somehow mash all of their DNA together to create the one perfect man?

    Ellen showed the beginning part of that video on her show! She then asked the audience and viewers to let her know if they knew any of the guys. She then had 3 of the men on her show! Here’s the link: http://ellen.warnerbros.com/2009/10/80s_dating_video_men_found.php

One Day’s Wages

My Instagram

We have to remind ourselves of this truth every day lest we forget:

Our greatest calling as followers of Christ is to be faithful. Not spectacular. Not glamorous. Not popular. Not relevant.

Be faithful.

PS: Also, it helps to get some Vitamin D especially if you live in the rainy Northwest Thank you, Brooklyn, for the reminder. Umm, @jlin7 is a Christian but he wasn't very Christlike with me on the basketball court. He muscled me into the paint, dunked on me, mentioned my momma, and then said, "Stick with preaching." Just kidding. Kind of.

If you haven't heard, Jeremy Lin is donating his one games wages (approximately $140,000) and an additional $100 for every 3 pointer made to support Girls' Empowerment and Education through @onedayswages. That game is this Friday vs the Boston Celtics!

Join his campaign as he's inviting his fans to donate just $7. - http://onedayswages.org/jlin

Did you know that 32 million girls of lower secondary school age are not enrolled in school.

Did you know that every year of secondary school increases a girl’s future earning power by 20 percent.

Did you know that if all girls in Sub-Saharan Africa, South and West Asia had a secondary education, child marriage would fall by 64 percent.

We can't change the entire world but we can impact the lives of one, few, and in some cases...many.

#jeremylin #jlin #linsanity #onedayswages Don't be held captive to either praise or criticism.

Know who you are.
Know what you're about.
Know WHO you serve.

The answer to who you serve makes all the difference... It's the day after International Women's Day - and it's still important to celebrate the contribution of women in our lives, society, and world. As we honor women all around the world, I'm also reminded of how women and children are those who are most deeply impacted by injustice - especially poverty.

Sadly, I have witnessed this reality in too many places. ​In 2012, I traveled to a remote area in Eastern Kenya as part of a @onedayswages response to a famine that struck the Horn of Africa region. This famine impacted nearly 13 million people and according to some sources, took the lives of about 250,000 people. During my trip there, I had the chance of meeting many people but the person that still remains in my memory was a Muslim woman named Sahara.

She was so hospitable in inviting us to her small and temporary home. During our conversation, I learned that ​Sahara traveled 300 kilometers (a little under 200 miles) – some by cart and some by foot – as they sought to escape the worst drought that has impacted East Africa (Kenya, Somalia, and Ethiopia) in the past 60 years.

This is not a misprint.
200.

She traveled about 200 miles on cart and foot. ​And all along, she was ill. If you look closely ​at the photo, you might notice the large lump in her throat - likely a large cancerous tumor.​ She did not travel alone. She traveled with her husband who I was not able to meet because he was staying with one of his five other wives in this polygamist community.  She did not travel alone. She also traveled with her six children – the youngest being about 1 and the oldest being around 8. She had just given birth to her sixth child when they began her journey. Her youngest was severely malnourished when they arrived to this new settlement in a town called Benane. 
Sahara and her children all survived this journey. They survived because she persisted. 
In honor of Sahara...and so many other women who keep...keeping on. I have to remind myself of this every day...because I can forget every day:

Don't be lazy and make assumptions about people. Ask about their story. Then listen. Be humble. Be teachable. Be human. Be a good neighbor.
