She’s beginning a series on subject of men for the benefit of unmarried Christan women. Here are some questions to consider [for the female readers]: ~ Do I have guy friends?  Christian or not?~ What am I communicating to them in our relationship?~ Are there boundaries I may be crossing?~ Is it appropriate to be alone with them?~ What does God’s Word say about how I should be conducting myself around guy “friends”?~ Does this mean I can’t talk to any men?  Ever?~ When is it appropriate to communicate with a guy?   To read her whole post and watch the video, Why Men And Women Can’t Be Friends, click... read more
