I struggled for a long time trying to understand what his will for me was...

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.

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.

The typical, yet painful, reply was, “Maybe you need to accept that God has no one for you,”...
