If you are frustrated with dating as a Christian, then this is the blog for you. If you are happy being a Christian single, then this is also the blog for you. If you are divorced or widowed, then this is the blog for you as well. Even if you are a Christian single parent desiring to enter the dating world again, this is definitely the blog for you.
I wrote the book “Date, Pray, Wait” to share with other Christian single people and encourage them to stay faithful to their personal beliefs and trust in God. I was not raised in a Christian home. In fact, you could say I was raised on Dysfunctional Lane as so many are these days. Yet, I did manage to come to know Christ as my personal Savior at age 10 through a profound experience that changed my life for the good, no thanks to my parents. As a young child, I felt unloved and unimportant most of the time. I had no idea – as a created child of God – how very special God considered me. Consequently, my self-esteem suffered as did my own sense of value. Once I understood God’s love for me and experienced His presence, my life changed from night to day. However, my self-esteem and understanding of how to relate to men was still marred with the overall lack of fatherly love and guidance. As I grew in my understanding of God as my Heavenly Father that all changed over the years. In the meantime, I continued to date, pray, and wait for the right man I knew God had intended for me. I share all this and more in my new book “Date, Pray, Wait.”
But the real purpose of this blog is to offer some guidance to Christian singles and a safe place where they can feel comfortable about sharing their own experiences in order to gain perspective and support from others. Please feel free to share your stories in the comments here. If you want to share about your dating experiences and things you have learned along the way, write to me (send me an email) and I will be glad to include you as a guest blogger.
Please pick up a copy of my book – Date, Pray, Wait – now available on Amazon, Kindle and Barnes & Noble Nook. Have a seat on my couch, kick your shoes off, and make yourself comfortable. I look forward to hearing from you and chatting with all of you soon.
