A Resource for Single Women {And Another Chance to Win my Book!}

As a single woman, I remember reading a great blog called Triple Braided Life by Brenda H. Rodgers. She’s a married woman who calls herself a “recovering single.” I love that! Brenda also says,

I was single for longer than I expected, and it was the hardest time in my life. During those years I could not reconcile why God gave me the intense desire to be a wife and mother and yet those desires were not being fulfilled.

I relate to that 100%. Her blog is a great resource for young women, no matter their marital status. She offers encouragement and Biblical advice. Her current series on the blog is 31 Days of Interviews with Single Women Making a Difference. I highly recommend reading these interviews, and you may see some familiar names from the #SingleTruth blog tour as well!

Single Woman Book Single TruthI realized I may have buried the lead a bit here because today on her blog, Brenda wrote an amazing review of Truth, Lies, and the Single Woman!

She talks about how we need more resources for single women, and I totally agree.

AND she’s giving away an autographed copy! If you haven’t won any of the previous giveaways, here’s another chance to win your copy of my book for single women. {By the way, you don’t have to be a single woman to enter! I have heard from many single men who are reading and enjoying the book as well as women who have been married a long time!}

Happy Monday!

A New Friend, A Book Review & A Birthday!

Know that feeling when you meet someone and it seems like you’ve known each other forever? I feel that way about Holly Hrywnak. We haven’t actually met in person yet, but we’ve talked on the phone and we’ve connected online quite a bit over the past month (so much that I no longer have to look up how to spell her last name!!)

Holly is a beautiful 30-year-old single woman, and I wrote Truth, Lies, and the Single Woman for amazing women like her. Check out Holly’s thoughts on the book here in her book review. (She’s also giving away a copy of the book, so definitely check out her post!)

Holly says:

It’s like I’m sitting down with a close friend over a cup of coffee and she’s listening to me spout off the things I’ve been thinking about concerning my singleness. She hears the hurt, the loneliness, and the lies. The lies that tell me that I’m unlovable and unworthy of love.


In other news, today is my birthday! I’m sure you’re racking your brain about what to get me as a birthday gift (by the way, I totally had to look up whether to use wrack or rack and was surprised by the answer! #grammarnerd). Anyway, I’ll tell you what I would enjoy. If you’ve read Truth, Lies, and the Single Woman, I would love for your to share your thoughts by posting a review on Amazon or Goodreads. It’s so easy, and the birthday girl would be very grateful! 🙂

Thank you for all of your support during the release of Truth, Lies, and the Single Woman!

Have a fantastic October 8th!

Official Book Launch Day

Updated to add: The winner of the signed copy of Truth, Lies, and the Single Woman is comment # 3: Ellie! Congratulations Ellie! I will email you for your mailing address.

It’s the first day of October and today is the official launch day for Truth, Lies, and the Single Woman!

TruthLiesSingleWoman high res jpegIf you’re a single woman, my passion is . . .

To tell you that you’re valuable and loved and beautiful

To encourage you not to lose hope when God’s timing is different than yours

To challenge you to reject lies that say something is wrong with you

To remind you that God delights in you and has a beautiful plan for your life.

But if you’re not a single woman, I still want to share Single Truth with you: 

Only God can satisfy your deep longings to be fully known and loved. tweet-this_button

Your identity comes from being a child of God, not from your marital status or anything you have done. God’s love is not based on anything we do. It’s based on the character of God and who he is. 


Thank you so much for being part of this amazing journey with me. I’m so grateful for each of you . . . those who took my surveys for the book, shared their personal stories with me, prayed for me throughout this process, and you, the committed followers of this blog.

Would you stand by me one more time and help me spread the message about this book? Tell your friends about it, share it on social media, ask your bookstore if they are stocking copies. If you’ve read the book, will you write a review online?


Also, we’re in the middle of a fun 3-week blog tour for Truth, Lies, and the Single Woman, and I want to thank each of the bloggers participating in the #SingleTruth blog tour:


 You can find a list of their blog links here.
