I know what you’re thinking – two posts in a week!! Yes, I’ve neglected my poor readers terribly this year but, as you’re about to find out, there has been a good reason for this.
But first – some exciting news to share: my fellow blogger and internet gal pal Ruth Harding, of Ruth’s Home Truths, has just written a book!
Off the Shelf: Traditional Dating Truths for the Modern Christian Woman is full of sage and practical wisdom for women on how to lose the single status and get into a relationship. My copy arrived the other day and I’m already halfway through the book! It’s insightful, easy to read, and soooooo relevant.
For any young woman, especially in her late 20s to early 30s, who has known the pangs of the single life, Off the Shelf is refreshingly honest, resonant and chock-full of advice for finding “the one” that is, above all, realistic and practical.
Separated into six sections, each part addresses common questions from single women who have either struggled to get into the dating scene or to find single, dateable men. Reading Ruth’s words is almost like reading my own diary – so much of what she writes is 100% applicable to me and my experiences, and I have no doubt it will resonate with many of my female readers, too.
Ruth and I had a good chat about the trials and tribulations of the modern single Christian woman on her new podcast (also called Ruth’s Home Truths), including why it’s so hard to meet people these days, why there seem to be more church-going single women than men and the fact that I’ve started writing a book..! (Hence why I’ve been a little distracted the last few months.)
