Prayers for the Single Journey for Women Book Update

In 2015, my book, Prayers for the Single Journey for Women was released. I shared at the time that the book was only due to the Lord's grace in providing each of the items needed for this book to come to fruition. Truly, where the Lord guides, He provides everything we need.

I have to admit that when I was first approached with writing this book I hesitated. This topic, the topic of singleness, is so near and dear to my heart that while I had been writing the book for years, I never thought I would actually have it published. And yet the Lord continues to stir this topic within my heart as I have cried and prayed with so many friends, loved ones, and readers. 

The topics in Prayers for the Single Journey for Women are all things that I have prayed through, cried through, and continue to go to the Lord about in this single journey. The book contains 52 topics (one for each week of the year) that I believe resonate deeply in the hearts of single gals and includes hundreds of scripture verses so the book can also be easily used as a devotional. 

Prayers for the Single Journey for Women was written for a wide span of age groups from women and for teenage women alike. Here are a list of the topics:
1.        Loneliness 
2.        Longing
3.        The ache to be married
4.        Feeling unbeautiful 
5.        Self-Esteem

20.     Lack of Understanding
21.     Feeling forsaken and forgotten
22.     Friday Nights

As I shared above Prayers for the Single Journey for Women was something that I had been working on for years. It grew out of a time from my teaching days when I taught a class of 12th grade girls and found myself single again after a relationship ended. Throughout the years of teaching I would write some for this book behind the scenes and it continued to grow. 

Prayers for the Single Journey for Women is truly a vulnerable opening of my heart about this subject. My prayer is that it would be used by the Lord to encourage the hearts of single women that pick this up (no matter the age that they are!). Would you join me in praying this? I have received so many beautiful emails from those who have purchased the books and my heart breaks for the hurt in this journey and the lonely aching. Thank you for praying for this!

I have also received several emails asking if I will be coming out with any more single books in the future. I so appreciate that sweet question and am carefully and prayerfully considering some different things the Lord has for this area. I will definitely keep you updated and appreciate more than words can say your sweet support.

If you are interested in purchasing Prayers for the Single Journey for Women you can find it on Amazon (and where books are sold) by clicking HERE. If you would be interested in writing a review on Amazon for this book I would be happy to send you a complimentary copy- please just email me or leave a comment below with your contact information.

Thank you so much friends! I hope that you have a wonderful Monday!!

  1. While I'm not affected by my single life as much as some females I do appreciate you sharing encouragement and faith with others Rebecca. Also chapters like 'taking care of our bodies' and 'purity' do interest me. Wouldn't mind hearing someone else's perspective.
