Vlog: On Worth, Guys & God

Sweet readers!

Okay so I am starting a weekly series called: Heart to Heart, A Coffee Date with Erin James where I'll be talking to you about random things that are on my heart. I always say I wish we could have a coffee date and so I'm makin' it happen! The videos will be about 15 minutes long, so grab a drink and get comfy - we're gonna chat! Love you all oh so much and thankful for your hearts! Hugs and blessings to you this week!! XO, E.

  3. This is so true.

    Another huge part of it is looking for guys in the wrong places. I mean if you look in an egg carton you're gonna find eggs, not cheese right? If you're looking for a husband you're probably not going to find him in a bar or club or someplace like that, (you might, not saying it's impossible, and I'm not dissing those who've married someone they met at the bar, it just seems like you're looking for a needle in a haystack trying to find a Godly man at a bar) but honestly most of those guys are out looking for something else if you know what I mean.

    If you want to find Godly men you've got to go where Godly men would be. I'm not saying to troll the church groups looking for dates, but getting involved with something along those lines is a good idea, I mean if we want a Godly man, we've got to be Godly women don't we? Hang out with God and you'll meet other amazing people who are also attempting to hang out with Him, and honestly I'd rather meet a guy who's trying his best to be Godly than to meet one who's trolling for sex at a bar, it just seems that you'd avoid a lot of heart ache that way.

    Also I think it's important that we as girls don't judge a book by it's cover, I mean don't completely disregard a man because he doesn't look "hot" or whatever. There are so so so many men out there that have the best hearts in the world and would treat a girl right and respect her, but they don't even get a second glance cause girls are waiting for this hot knight in shining armor that is totally a tv fantasy. Remember to give people a chance no matter what they look like, you never know, you might end up being attracted to them in the end if you give them a chance. There are certainly many different things that make a man attractive other than what he looks like, if you judge him by his cover so to speak, then you're leaving out his heart, and all those qualities that need a bit of time to present themselves and you end up doing the same thing to guys as we women don't like them doing to us.

    Also it's so so important to get to know a person for a while before you date them, I think it works best if the guy is your friend first. I mean if you can't trust him as a friend, then he's probably not marriage material either, right? Sometimes the guy you're looking for is right in front of you and you look right past him everyday.

    Sorry I rambled on a bit too much, I agree with you 100%, I just feel bad for girls who end up "in love" with the wrong type of guy and get dragged through the mud by him, love makes a girl do crazy things and it's so easy to end up in that situation and much harder to get out of it.

    Have fun at the conference

  7. ah, girl. totally needed to hear this tonight. i love your heart.

    i have really been thinking about this lately, as well. thinking about how we search for approval in all the wrong places. we SEARCH and LONG for approval when we are already loved SO SO much. we don't need to look for love. we have it, in abundance. i want the girls around me, and my daughters, and myself to realize that we are loved without limit. that we are enough. that we don't need anyone or anything else, because we have jesus. and that is so fulfilling.

    love you so much, friend.
    xoxo

  9. Your vlog is about 15 minutes long but it took me about 30 minutes to finish it because well, 3G is crappy here.
    But I'm done now and I really loved listening to you speak about purity and worth in Christ! So inspiring.
    I was thinking about doing vlogs on my blog too but will have them shorter because well 3G here is crappy.
    Can't wait to see more in this series! Go, girl!
