When I was a little girl my mom had one of those “School Days” memory books for my brother and me. Each year at the end of the school year she would sit us down to ask us some of the questions in the book. One of the questions was, “What do you want to be when you grow up?”
As you can imagine, I had a myriad of childhood dreams through the years from wanting to be a ballerina to a marine biologist.
But there was one dream that was steady and consistent. One dream that my mom wrote on the blank line more than once. That dream was to be a wife and mother – to be a homemaker.
I graduated from high school enthusiastically anticipating college, and I went to college and graduated. Then the years began to pass, one after another, without this dream being fulfilled.
In Ashley Schnarr’s new eBook Single Girl: A Woman’s Guide to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Godliness, she captures the tension that young girls face when their deepest longing to be a wife and mother is not realized soon into their young adult years – the same tension that I faced.
Who am I?
What is my purpose?
Can I ever be content?
Am I less than because I’m single?
But I don’t want a career. I want a family.
Is there a place for me in the church?
Do I need to change to find a man?
And on and on the questions come.
Ashley is a single woman living out these questions with you right now. In her book, she unfolds the layers to the myths, lies, and clichés that single women hear and sometimes adopt as truth, and she gives you practical and biblical suggestions for living your single years joyfully.
A few of my favorite parts of Single Girl are: Pursuing God During the Single Years, Discovering Your Identity, 10 Questions to Ask Before Starting a Relationship, and Where to Meet Christian Guys.
Plus, there’s a FREE mentor group guide available on her website!
This eBook is perfect for the young single woman who has always wanted to be a wife and mother and is asking, “Now what?”, when her circumstances are not what she dreamed.
