Here’s the basic purpose for this blog.
I want you to realize the immense gift that lies in being a single young woman when you are following Christ. During this time, He is developing a beauty in your life that will transcend the physical and permeate the spirits of all who you come in contact with. In an essence, your “heart” – more specifically, your character, spiritual discipline, emotional maturity – is in bloom.
This time period is vital to your development. Don’t neglect these your moments of youth. While He is writing your love story, trust in His plan and work to maintain the purity He wants for you. Emotional, physical, spiritual…all of that.
You’re free to explore these pages. We’re family, my Sisters in Christ, and just as iron sharpens iron, I believe that sharing my experiences with you will generate a community wherein which we can sharpen each others’ faith.
Single. Following Christ. Living Fully. And Learning to Love it.
It’s not always going to be easy, but this is a place where we can be real.
College Student. In love with Christ. 19-year-old. American-born, raised by Jamaican parents.
Author, blogger, communicator, singer, pianist, creator of abstract thoughts.
I fight for the causes of emotional and sexual purity in Christ. My enemies currently include the human-trafficking industry and the media. I will speak out against the lies of needing to conform to another human’s standards in order to please or be accepted by them. My standard is Christ.
Though the my username says “sadeferri,” my name is actually Sade Ferrier. I self-published my first novel three years ago at the age of 16. Though born and raised in a Christian family, my personal relationship with God was not instantaneous (is it ever?!). I’ve learned of His character for myself by experiencing trials, things that tore at my faith while I endured them. I can say now that He is truly my comforter, because I have been comforted. He is my restoration, because He revived me from the deaths of sin and depression. He is my Heart because He sustains me so immensely more than my first (human) love ever could have. And this is how it will always be. Even in imminent marriage, God will now be my priority and first adoration.
I am imperfect.
I struggle with loneliness at times.
I am insecure about my appearance.
I can be impatient and disrespectful.
But I have the authority to write the words in this blog because my identity is now found in Christ
Therefore if anyone (woman) be in Christ, (she) is a new creation! The old has gone, the new has come.
-2 Corinthians 5:17
