The world tells single women that they most need to find a guy, at least for a night. The church often seems to suggest they most need a husband. Is it really possible to be a single Christian woman and be satisfied?
Andrea Trevenna takes readers to the heart of singleness—to what our hearts need, how they feel, and the ways they can be deceived. She shows that there is a way for singleness not to be at best a quiet regret, and at worst a personal tragedy. She points to the ultimate, and only, place where anyone, single or married, finds true satisfaction—knowing, and enjoying knowing, Christ.
If you are a single woman, whatever your experience of life so far, or if you are a friend of someone who is single, then this short, warm, realistic book is for you.
This book is really about the heart. The solution to struggling with singleness is to realise that Jesus is all anyone either married or single will ever need.
On a shelf of books about singleness this stands out as it shows us how as single Christian women we can have the satisfaction we long for. It is no smug self-help book, presenting the ideal but unattainable perfect single life. Andrea’s honesty reassures us she really does understand our situation and she shows us that it’s only when we get our hearts right that we can truly be content. A great strength of the book is that when you put it down you feel as if you’ve had a chat with the author (over tea and cake or a glass of wine!) – the warm and funny style makes it very readable. I’d encourage all single Christian women to read it – but it comes with a warning as it is challenging! It forces us to look at our hearts, to see how we can be deceived as we pursue the lie that a husband will make us content, and points us instead towards the one who will never disappoint and wants to be our bridegroom.
