Hey, I just want to let you know how much I love this (and the ‘A Real Woman’ as well). I’m copying them both (I hope you don’t mind) to put up on my wall in my dorm room.

I think it’s really great that you’re doing this blog. I know God is having you write it for a reason, just as He showed it to me for a reason. I’m hooked.

Of course I don’t mind you copying them for that reason! In fact that’s awesome! I’m glad you have benefited from it! it’s definitely an encouragement to hear positive feed back from guys who read my blog :)

You’ve Ruined It!!! « Echoes In The Wind

[…] To the young men: Where are you?? Just kidding. But please, start today becoming a hard worker, a leader, a manly man! We are looking for someone who turns our hearts, not our heads. We could really care less about your effeminate voice, your stylish clothes, your buff muscles. Act like a man! Most young women I know, Christian and non-Christian, enjoy the company of real men. When you become concerned about your sunglasses more than doing good work, please consider this link from an acquaintance of mine, Kelly. https://unaveragerelationships.wordpress.com/2010/06/12/293/ […]
