We believe in equipping you for God-centred relationships
For me, it started with a book. I wanted to write something that would truly help people wrestle with the heartache of being dumped, the damage done by unfaithfulness, and the confusion of knowing if ‘we’re well suited or not’.
- I wanted to really help people build relationships that are enjoyable and fulfilling. In a way that makes room for God in all the excitement and disappointment.
- I wanted to write a book that would help people apply biblical truths to their circumstances.
- I wanted a book that was based on more than opinion and experience. Whilst God can and does work through these things, His Word is holy, full of grace, wisdom, and is always trustworthy.
In 2013 I co-authored and released ‘The Dating Dilemma: A Romance Revolution’. It’s for people who are single, dating, or those supporting people who are dating. It aims to shake up the way we date and help those who follow Jesus make more room for Him in this area.
I’m passionate about helping people enjoy romantic relationships, and strengthen good relationships, and be blessed in a way that God wants us to be through all of our relationships. Romantic or otherwise.
After the book I thought I would’ve done all I can, but my passion grew and grew and I was desperate to keep helping and equipping people in this area. To keep supporting those dealing with failed relationships and romantic rejection by offering useful and biblical advice. To keep educating and enabling people to develop an ethical and biblical approach to this important but often overlooked area. To inspire people to break the cycle of broken families and low aspiration caused by a lack of stable relationships, Biblical teaching, and good family role models.
I started The Relationship Dilemma charity in 2013 with some help from my friends. I began posting resources online and delivering talks at churches and events around the country. (You can book a talk by clicking here.) I committed about one day a week to the cause and started to see a small change in people by giving them the tools to make their relationships feel safe, secure and satisfying.
In 2014 I cut my hours down in my paid work and volunteered two to three days a week to my Relationship Dilemma charity. As of September 2015, it became part of the Naked Truth project, which sits under the overarching charity called Visible. The work I do is now called Naked Truth Relationships, but the aim remains the same.
We exist to offer Biblical advice for building healthy relationships, and a chance to interact with others who are wrestling with the same issues. We want to show you how much God cares for you and how he wants to bless your relationships, romantic or otherwise. We want to show how you can keep building on his desires in your search for love.
We exist to support you through the mess and success of relationships
I can’t promise to solve every relationship issue, or foolishly offer ‘10 easy steps for finding love’. I don’t give ‘easy’ or ‘fool proof’ plans for getting that special someone. My prayer is that we can date, build friendships, navigate singleness and model marriage in a more fulfilling, enjoyable and God-centred way.
Above all, I pray that you will know that God’s love is the best love you will ever know. He wants to show you how to nurture good and healthy relationships and help you get through your relationship joys and messy dilemmas.
‘But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us’
