Reasons for Prolonged Singleness Part 3

I am continuing along with the series on Reasons for Prolonged Singleness. Last month, I looked at the first reason, which is when people do not have knowledge about or understand the truth of their calling to marriage. This month, I will discuss prior wounding and family of origin issues. As I shared in the first post in this series, Jesus stated that there are only three reasons that a person...

Reasons for Prolonged Singleness Part 1

Prolonged Singleness. When I first heard the term applied to my struggle of finding a husband, I was strangely comforted. There was a name for what I was dealing with. I was in my mid-thirties at the time and had been unable to maintain a relationship with a man to marriage. In my blog post, “Prolonged Singleness: Are You Stuck in the Single State?,” I shared my discovery of the concept of...

An October Update

Hello everyone! This month’s blog post is more like a letter to you, as I wanted to update you on things on which I am working. I am working on a big project which I hope to share the details with you soon. Also, I have been part of an amazing panel of women on the “Anchored in Faith” podcast. We are doing a four-part series entitled, “At the Women’s Well.” We are discussing topics...

The Struggle to Marry

I first began hearing that there was a vocation to the single life over 15 years ago, when I, myself, was still single. In my late thirties, I was discouraged, and seriously seeking God for a spouse. Various individuals would routinely comment to me that perhaps I was called to be single. I believe this comment was offered by well-meaning folks who lacked a theological foundation on how to offer...

Meeting People in the Year 2021

Several weeks ago, I was catching up with a close friend of mine that I will call Alexis. Alexis had recently found herself single again and we were discussing the intricacies of her newfound situation, struggles, and relationship with God. While not a major topic of our conversation, Alexis mentioned the difficulty of meeting people in person today, not only members of the opposite sex but just...

Prolonged Singleness and the Bible: A Study of Tobit, Part III

This month, I continue with the study of the book of Tobit, specifically looking at prolonged singleness in the Bible. In the blog post, “Prolonged Singleness and the Bible: A Study of Tobit  Part I,” I provided a summary of the Book of Tobit. Next, in the blog post, “Prolonged Singleness and the Bible: A Study of Tobit Part II,” I probed Sarah’s situation and how it mirrors our...

Prolonged Singleness and the Bible: A Study of Tobit Part II

Last month in my blog post entitled, Prolonged Singleness and the Bible: A Study of Tobit  Part I, I provided a summary of the Book of Tobit. I especially related how God pointed me to the book of Tobit when I was single and had lamented to him that although there were women in the Bible that battled infertility, there was no one that ever struggled to get married. He showed me I was wrong....

Prolonged Singleness and the Bible: A Study of Tobit Part I

When I was in my mid-thirties and really struggling with this entire singleness issue, I asked God why no one in the Bible ever struggled to get married? I complained to him that there were several women in the bible who had wrestled with infertility – Sarah, Hannah, and Elizabeth. He saw their pain and performed a miracle, thus enabling each one to bear and birth a child.   ...

The Vocation Awakening

When I was in my thirties and stuck in prolonged singleness, I was desperately afraid that God had called me to the single life. This was compounded by the feedback and responses I would receive from well-meaning people I would speak to about my grief and suffering regarding my desire to be married. The typical, yet painful, reply was, “Maybe you need to accept that God has no one for you,”...

Anatomy of A Date Part II

Last month, I wrote the blog post, Anatomy of A Date Part I. I shared my thoughts on the film, “The Dating Project,” as well as encouraged folks to polish up on their dating skills by reviewing my three part blog series, “Can the Bible Teach Us to Date?” Where are we going? By referencing scriptures from my series, I would like to look at what makes up the anatomy of a date. If I could...
