  • Blog Post: Engagement Stories: Emilie & Jordan

    Prior to ever meeting Jordan, I had never dated. At the time, I felt somewhat hopeless thinking about my future husband.

  • Blog Post: Money-Saving Tips for Coming to Pursuit 2014

    I'm one of those people who will go out of her way to use a coupon, take a survey just to get the promised freebie, and compare prices on an item until her head hurts.

  • Blog Post: Engagement Stories: Muthani & Humphrey

    I am Zambian (not sure if many Boundless readers know or have even hear of it).

I got saved after repeatedly hearing the Gospel preached...

  • Blog Post: Singleness Stereotypes, According to Google

    Last week, Christianity Today looked at what Google autocorrect teaches us about denominational stereotypes . I thought it would be equally interesting to look at what Google might teach us about singleness, dating and marriage. What I found was both comical and depressing. Google uses an algorithm to...

    Whether you go to a small church or a large one, it’s hard to find community in a corporate worship service for an hour and a half every Sunday. Enter the small group. I’ve had several different small group experiences over the years, and most have been positive. Sure, it can be hard to find...
  • Blog Post: Get in the Game

    I grew up in a basketball family. My dad was a coach at our high school, and I practically grew up with a basketball in my hand. I remember one time in middle school I was shooting around at practice and the team needed another player. They asked if I’d like to play. I was immediately flooded with...

    Some people don't have to balance a budget. Consider the U.S. Congress, for example. For years these men and women have proposed budgets where expenses significantly exceed income, and every President has signed off on it.

  • Blog Post: Comparison Destroys Contentment

    I live in a three-bedroom apartment with four of my best girl friends. We have lived together for three years and have learned how to communicate and get along in a rare and beautiful way.
