It has long been my dream to write a book that encourages Christians to approach the single life with purpose and passion! Those who find themselves single are constantly challenged to think beyond the stereotypes and myths that exist in our society (that everyone eventually gets married and life begins when you walk down the aisle.) When we embrace the single life, we discover a deep sense of freedom, fulfilling relationships, unique opportunities for work and service, and ample space for God. At the same time, being single in today’s world can sometimes be painful, lonely, and frustrating; and that aspect of the single life deserves our attention as well.
Party of One: Living Single with Faith, Purpose, and Passion is a book about how to enjoy being single! It employs the insights of scripture, spiritual sages, and ordinary people who show us that the single life can be a place of abundance and joy if we welcome it. My hope is to address the fears singles face, the assumptions people make, and the questions we ask ourselves – especially when it becomes clear that the single life is becoming a permanent state in life and not just a passing phase on the way to something else. Furthermore, each chapter includes practical and spiritual advice for finding happiness and contentment during the single years.
Party of One is published by St. Anthony Messenger Press. It is available in paperback, Kindle edition, and audio book format.
