A Prayer for the Single Woman Still Wounded by Love

As a woman who has experienced the heartache of a long-term, broken (even sometimes abusive) relationship and who then continued to engage in more fruitless, broken relationships, I understand that love can wound you. It can wound you so much so that you continue into a cycle of hurt and pain with more men. A cycle that Christ never intended for you to be in. As a part of this prayer series, God has placed it on my heart to write a prayer for women who were just as I was – broken, beat down, and spiraling through a non-stop cycle …

5 Things Every Single Should Pray For

As a single woman, I pray for many things. But these are the 5 things that I pray for the most and that seem to have had the biggest impact on my single life: Discipline. As a single woman, I have been granted time that a married woman just doesn’t have.

Single, Saved, and Still Wanting Sex: Is the Church Talking About Sex Enough?

Over the past week, I’ve been seeing this advertisement for an event entitled “Single, Saved, and Still Wanting Sex… I Still Want It: A Transparent Conversation About Being Holy and Horny”!

Regardless of how you may feel about the event, I …

Dear Future Husband: I’m Not Waiting On You

Dear Future Husband, I’m sure you are worth the wait, but I’m not waiting on you! Of course, as a Christian woman, I will wait on you in terms of purity. Because the Bible says my body is a temple – not my own, bought with a price, therefore, I should honor God with it (1 Corinthians 6:19-20). And I will wait on your pursuit. Because he who finds a wife finds a good thing and receives favor from the Lord (Proverbs 18:22). But this letter is not about waiting in terms of purity or your pursuit. It’s about that …

Oh, Valentine’s Day! A day that can be a single’s least favorite day of the year.

I spent that Valentine’s Day crying and listening to …

This Beauty Called Singleness

From one single woman to another, I really want to encourage you to hold on to the true beauty of singleness. I’m 27. A young woman in the Lord, just like many of you. And I understand the desire to want to be married and have a family. But I also understand the importance of waiting on the Lord to meet that desire. And the beauty and the freedom we have in our singleness with Christ. I didn’t always understand that, I spent countless years dealing with randoms (guys you know you will never marry and use to fill the …
