Jessica is a Social Media Strategist turned Content Marketing Manager and was just as surprised as you are to learn that those things are real things. She longs to see Christians set free from sin and living without shame in the truth of the gospel. She is passionate about pointing single women toward God's faithfulness and abundance in their own lives and awaits the day they have seen so much of Jesus that they'd be perfectly content if He was all they ever got. She calls Risen (http://www.risensd.com) church her home and blogs about her journey as an unmarried Jesus-follower over at nobodyswivesclub.com.
We are a people always seeking, always moving, always striving for more: it is the American way.

I don’t know about you, but I am perpetually of the mind that God is disappointed in me. With a double-sided tongue, a heart burning with lust, and an ego so swollen it practically occupies its own zip code, there is certainly no shortage of evidence to support this idea.
