Pilots who don't do anything*

"Learning to love friends and family better prepares the heart for marriage than 'navigating' relationships with various romantic prospects. We learn intimacy through chaste love, not dating. God doesn't 'navigate' us; he loves us. The biggest myth about singleness is that singles should try on different dating partners. Yes, we should learn from dating experience, but we shouldn't make an idol of variety."

— Yours truly, preaching away in a Today's Christian Woman symposium.
