Today I’m talking with Morgan McFarlin! Morgan says:

The secret to living a purposeful and fulfilling life? Realizing that God created me distinctly and for a unique purpose. My purpose is not dependent on my relationship status, rather, it is essential to God’s plan that I live each day fully. Do I believe that God means for me to be married someday? Yes, of course. But this doesn’t mean that I can sit around and wait to “start my life” when Mr. Right saunters in. I don’t want to look back on this time in my life and have any regrets. And I know that if I don’t embrace the now, right now, I will eventually wish I had.

I can relate so much to Morgan’s interview! Like Morgan, all I wanted to be was a wife and mother. This is hard as a single woman because you question your purpose when marriage isn’t a reality at the time. I also love that Morgan supports Natural Family Planning. I use Natural Family Planning. So sit back and enjoy this wonderful interiew with Morgan that ends our 31 Days series !

My advice would be to get before the Lord and truly find out what His will is for your life.

God created YOU for a purpose and He will definitely show it to you, and you don’t have to be married to carry out that purpose. Be encouraged and trust God.

Katie Herzing :: An Interview with a Single Woman Making a Difference

It’s day 28 of 31 Days of Interviews with Single Women. You can find a list of all the interviews in this post.

Also, be sure to enter the giveaway to win an autographed copy of Allison K. Flexer’s new book Truth, Lies, and the Single Woman at the bottom of today’s interview. This giveaway will continue through Friday!

Today I’m talking with Katie Herzing! Katie says:

After I read Emily Stimpson’s book The Catholic Girl’s Survival Guide for the Single Years, I changed a few of my thoughts on the single years. She made one interesting point that being single is a choice – that I’m not married right now because I’m choosing not to be. It is my choice to be single. I’m choosing to wait for God’s Plan, not my own. I’m choosing to uphold my future marriage to a higher standard based on mutual faith in God.

Katie is a woman after my own heart! She is originally from Pennsylvania, but now lives in Charlotte, NC and loves the south! She says, “I love being a Southern girl and cannot see myself moving back north any time soon.” Yay! You may know, but I am also a southerner – born and raised – and I love all things south! Katie blogs at Waiting for Patience, so be sure to connect with her there, too!

Lisa Anderson :: An Interview with a Single Woman Making a Difference

Can you believe this is our last week of October, and our last week of 31 Days of Interviews with Single Women? Too fast, friends, too fast! (If you’ve miss any of the interviews, you can find a list of all of them in this post.)

I have heard wonderful comments from all of you about these interviews, and I’m so happy they have encouraged you! To end this series, we’re having a giveaway that starts today! I’m giving away one copy of the book Truth, Lies, and the Single Woman: Dispelling 10 Common Myths by Allison K. Flexer. (Read my full review of Allison’s book in this post.) So be sure to enter to win below!

And today I’m also happy to introduce you to Lisa Anderson! Lisa says:

I fully believe in honoring marriage, and because I believe it’s in God’s plan for most people, to ignore it or never speak of it is both sinful and unhelpful. That said, I have to also embrace that God has a purpose for me right now. Singleness isn’t a waiting room for marriage. Life doesn’t begin at marriage, so what am I doing today to maximize the season I’m in while still preparing for the one to come?

I am so honored to interview Lisa Anderson! If you don’t already know Lisa, she is the director of young adults for Focus on the Family, she runs Boundless.org, an affiliate website from Focus on the Family which is for single young adults, and she hosts The Boundless Show, a national radio program and podcast that focuses on relationships, life and faith. Needless to say, her interview is full of wisdom! While I was reading it, I kept saying, “Yes!”,  to almost every sentence!

Thank you, Lisa, for taking time our of your packed schedule to talk to us today! I know it’s going to encourage many, many women!
