"Yes, I'm single ... feel free to comment."
Single women can sometimes be magnets for awkward question ... especially within the church community. What do you do with your life if you're not married? With an emphasis on strong marriages and biblical childrearing, unmarried women in the church can begin to think that they are somehow on the sidelines. But this is not the case. In this helpful volume, Nancy Wilson provides straightforward counsel and encouragement for those struggling with "the wait." She addresses practical concerns like building a career but focuses more specifically on important relational issues such as interacting with competitive women, respecting your parents even after you've left their home, establishing standards for male friends, and keeping the right outlook on your life. Whether a woman is called to singleness for a short time or for her whole life, she is called to be fruitful in God's kingdom.
What People Are Saying:
"If you're a single Christian woman worried and frustrated by your present marital status you need to read this book. I have read my share of those 'singleness is a gift' books (and it is!) but Nancy Wilson approaches it from a fresh perspective, is terribly witty and completely straightforward with her readers. You will be laughing your way through each chapter, and come away feeling refreshed and encouraged as a single woman of God. Read it!" -Kayla
"You are not an a useless awkward stage, you are a woman of God with a calling!" -Bethany
"This is one book that I found incredibly encouraging. It is full of great advice that I'm sure I will continue looking to throughout my life as a single woman." -Rachael
