I remember the very first time I contemplated the question, “What if being single is truly my calling in life?” I spent countless hours scouring the internet, and perhaps that’s how you stumbled upon this blog post, too! Finding the rare article, book chapter, or a mere sentence that validated the single vocation was like discovering a hidden treasure!
All that time I spent searching as a young adult compelled me to want to share my experience with others. It ultimately inspired me to write Party of One: Living Single With Faith, Purpose, and Passion. I hope that other single adults won’t have to spend as much time tracking down the great wisdom that others have shared with me about the single life journey.
The attached document includes a list of quotes, books, chapters, and articles that I have found interesting, inspiring, and thought-provoking on my journey as an intentionally single woman.
I’m always on the lookout for things to add to my reading-list related to the spirituality of the Single Life or the Single Vocation. There are many secular titles (as well as resources on dating and relationships in general) which I do not include on the bibliography. Although if I find something fun to read, I’ll post it on the Party of One Facebook page. I’d love to hear what you’re reading, too, so feel free to add your suggestions to the comments below!
