I am so subtle Last August I was relatively sure my life would look different a year later. There were hints of potential transition but I didn't know then how it would all play out. I've intentionally blogged less this summer as events have unfolded but it's time to peel... Continue reading

I hope it resonates with you when you read it, Sarah!

What a cool story, Katherine!

Right?! I'm ever aware of how lucky I was to have in my life at that time. It made all the difference.

I wish everyone had an Andy in their life!

So glad it was a helpful read for you, too, Kelly. That sounds like a fantastic class!

Thanks, Katie! I love hearing other people were similarly affected by ANKOC.

I read and loved Daring Greatly but haven't made it around to the Gifts of Imperfection yet. It's been in the To Read stack for quite a while. I've meant to read The Alchemist for a long time and your description makes me want to prioritize it higher on the list. All I could think about while reading what you said about The Untethered Soul- and I'm sure you won't be shocked- is the Enneagram. Definitely going to track down a copy! I actually wrote about one of my life-changing books today- A New Kind of Christian. The post is really about my friendship with the person who recommended the book to me. But the book itself changed everything for me. Without my friend and that book, I honestly don't think I'd still identify as a Christian.

I often say Brian McLaren is the reason I'm still a Christian. If given time to expound, I'll mention his book A New Kind of Christian and then I'll talk about the person behind it all, Andy Meisenheimer. Andy and I first met in the hallowed walls of The Christian... Continue reading

I love Pigtail. So much.

It sounds like you have a pretty good approach, Kara! It's too bad about the situation with your friend's brother. Maybe that's my subconscious reason for wanting the guy to be approached first. ;)

FOUR YEARS?! Holy buckets. Your friend was way more patient than I would be! Glad to hear it worked out in the end.

I always figure it doesn't hurt to try, too. But it makes me more grateful for the people who have put some thought into it. It makes me feel like they see and value me as a person, not some single person to fix.

Love this, Jane!

I am cringing over your friends wanting to set you up with some guy they've never even met. What in the world?!
Toggle Commented Aug 13, 2014 on 5 Tips For Wannabe Matchmakers at Leigh Kramer
I agree the best relationships grow out of friendships. I'm totally fine with a friend casually introducing me to someone at a BBQ but I wouldn't want to know ahead of time and I would feel way too pressured to go out to dinner with the matchmaker and the intended guy. I'd rather just go out with him on my own. My own preference!

I can see how you'd be an excellent matchmaker, JJ! When I heard about your group outing, that was my first thought- I'd feel on display too.
Toggle Commented Aug 13, 2014 on 5 Tips For Wannabe Matchmakers at Leigh Kramer
I'd be down with the casual gathering so long as I don't know there's a potential set up. I don't want everyone's eyes on us! If the matchmaker invites me and a single guy and makes sure we meet over the course of the night, that's fine.

Oh my gosh, Christena! I can only imagine.

Haha I hope these tips help improve your track record. :)

I have set people up in the past and while none made it to marriage, almost all of them dated long-term. I totally use these tips! I'm not going to nudge people toward each other unless I'm relatively sure they could be a match.
