Kicking Off the Valentine's Day Series: On Singleness

Kicking Off the Valentine's Day Series: On Singleness

As promised, we're tipping our hats to Valentine's Day with a series of relationship-oriented articles for singles and couples. God instituted marriage, and scripture tells us how to make it work; nonetheless, we still find it a very difficult terrain to navigate. We hope these articles bring you encouragement and point you to God's word.

We also want to make a small disclaimer. We don't want to imply with this series that people in relationships or marriages are more important than people who aren't. If this week's articles don't apply directly to you, we encourage you to glean what understanding you can from them. If you're single, don't skip the articles for marrieds. If you're married, don't skip the articles for singles. It's important that we learn about one another so we can better support each other. 

Without further ado, we bring you our first installment, written by Sister Natalie Pezzenti.


 

Happy New Year!

The Christmas Story as Told by Mary

The Christmas Story as Told by Mary

Happy Christmas Eve! Today, we bring you the final installment in our Christmas Character Series. Today's article was written by 10-year-old Cristina Scolaro, and Brother Andrew McNamara provided the artwork — yesterday's illustration of Joseph was only part of the larger picture.

One day, an angel named Gabriel came to me and told me that I was favored by God and that I would be the mother of the son of God. I thought, Me, the mother of God's son? That's a huge responsibility!

Shuff, shuff, shuff...

The steady rhythm of my planer slicing delicate shavings from the soft wood pauses at the sound of chirping insects. Glancing up, I notice my workbench gathering a pale orange tinge from the setting sun. Dusk. A cool breeze and dimming sky signal my permission to close shop for the day.

I couldn't believe it. Had it all really just happened? I knew when I got old enough to tend the sheep that it would entail long nights and sleeplessness. I just didn't think that my mind would play these kinds of tricks on me.

I'd been hearing rumors that a big announcement was about to come out and that a very special messenger was going to get the assignment, but when I received word that my Heavenly Father wanted to see me, I had no idea that I would play such an important role.

My young caretaker came into the barn more nervous than usual this morning, and he didn't attach me to the cart that carried wood. Instead, he placed a few blankets on my back, straightening out the wrinkles.
