Description:  Why savoring single? Because you were meant to enjoy it!

Finding purpose, knowing love, and experiencing adventure aren’t reserved solely for the married girls! You can enjoy a full and vibrant life even while being single. It’s also a perfect time to partner with what God wants to develop in you through this once-in-a-lifetime part of your journey! Girl, being single is okay. There is a purpose for it, and it won’t last forever. So savor it!

Yes, I'm married and still reading books on singleness because I still have a heart for singles and want to help my single sisters in Christ find amazing resources for living a life for God.

This book was a girl-to-girl book. It felt like you were sitting down with a good friend who was just sharing her heart and what God had taught her. It made the whole book so enjoyable to read.

Black shares everything from lessons she learned, biblical truth, the practical advice. Some of the things seemed rather basic and simplistic, while at other times she was super insightful with her thoughts.

I will say that there was only one thing I took issue with in this book. In a section dealing with sexual purity, she gave a list of practical ways to help you keep yourself on the straight and narrow. Most of it was solid advice not only from a practical standpoint but also for staying above reproach. However, the last item on the list was not even to hang out with guys. Perhaps the author meant something specific rather than general. I think that women can reap a lot of benefits from healthy, non-romantic relationships with their brothers in Christ.

Black deals head-on with so many things in ways that I think will both bless and encourage the single girl's heart. She does it in such a positive and encouraging tone without being fake that I think many will come away blessed.

Content note: There are two chapters that deal with sex and sexual purity. Black covers it for both girls who are virgins and those who are no longer virgins. Being a virgin herself, I'm not sure how helpful those who aren't will find her section talking to them. However, she covers the whole topic with tact, straightforwardness, and a lot of grace.
