You wouldn’t think staring into another person’s eyes for one minute would evoke so much in so little time. I was sitting in on a Biblical Ethics class this past week at the Tennessee Women’s Prison. The assignment was simple. We were asked to partner up with the person to the right of us and...

In case I sound a little bit excited in this blog post, that’s because I find it impossible not to be overwhelmed by the fact that we have walked where Jesus walked!  Everywhere I turn, the landscape of the Bible is before...

Since February is L.O.V.E. month on the Redeemed Girl blog, we decided to sit down with our founder, Marian Jordan Ellis, and ask her a few questions about all things love, dating and marriage.  The first post in this series is on praying for our husbands.
