Sharing My Heart & Exploring the One Who Made It

I live in Mississippi, and recently graduated with a degree in psychology from Ole Miss. I’m looking forward to graduate school so I can get my master’s in counseling. My posts are for my own benefit as I use writing as an outlet to document and organize my thoughts through my journey of living and learning. I write a ton. I’ve been in a relationship with Jesus for over a decade, I've been dating Charles since 2011, and I've been a female all my life so my writing is coming from a Christian feminist who is in love. My writing is an account of what I’m learning about myself, love, mercy, and justice. You can find it all by clicking on "navi" at the top and then going to "My Word Flow." You’ll find plenty of my voice there, but if there’s more you’d like to talk about, just go to my ask blog--asklaurenbritt.tumblr.com. I'm no longer able to answer all the questions I receive, but I try my best. I've already answered over 1300 questions, and I've tagged most of them with general key words, so they're easy to search.

God is constantly editing my perspective—confronting my mindset and altering each one that isn’t representative of his heart. Jesus is steadily revealing His reality and relevancy, and only because of His faithful pursuit of my life am I gaining understanding of Him and the world. Seeing how he rearranges my values, convictions, and desires is evidence of how needy I am to grow and mature, and this realization alone makes me desperate for the grace and hope of Christ to lead every aspect of my life.

There’s nothing new here—it’s all recycled wisdom mixed with my love for writing and communicating. It is all for the glory of Christ that I write. It is all for the glory of Christ that I share. It’s all to know him more and make him known. It’s all to understand him more and make him more understood. As we seek him, we find him; as we find him, we know him; as we know him, we love him. It’s all for him.

What is it you have on your mind?

I’ve had several girls ask me what to do if you find out your boyfriend struggles with pornography and I really respect this woman, Lauren Dubinsky, and everything she says speaks my heart and is reflective of my own opinion regarding the topic. I would say that everyone—whether you’re male or female, struggling or not struggling, dating or not dating one who struggles—this is valuable wisdom both to those who are in the midst of this battle and for those to be prepared in the case that you do face this battle in the future. Please take the time to watch this. The worst thing we can do is avoid talking about it.
