I read your book a while ago, and then picked it up again recently, and I must admit that I found your blog because I was interested to see what God had done in your life since you wrote it(having read the version of the book that was first put out). I've shared the book with friends here at college because it is a valuable tool for dealing with the reality of guy/girl relationships in college. Thanks so much for your blog, it is a great encouragement to me because I have lately just been struggling with being content with where I am in life right now, and I find myself wishing I was older and in a serious relationship, because it just seems like it would make things easier. It's just something I face as a struggle to be content, which shouldn't be a problem because the Lord has never given me any reason to doubt him! But thanks for your encouragement, and I would love to hear more from you in your blog about that subject!

I became aware of this blog through Single Mom For God: As a mom of teen and preteen daughters I can really appreciate your mission here and I will be back.

Hi, I'm Alysa!

I haven't actually read your book yet, but have enjoyed reading your blog.

While I'm actually writing a comment, I have a question.

What should be a single Christian's motive/s for wanting to be married?

Say you're single, of marriagable age & maturity, but with no "prospect" on the horizon. What should be our reason for wanting to be married? Is it for loneliness, or self-esteem (emotional neediness), or even purely physical? What is it that stops these motions driving us to desperation? If the Lord is our source of contentment (and, as many books have said, our husband, prince, etc) then why would we still desire to be with someone?

And, is it right to pray for God to send you a husband/wife? Again, what would be one's motive in this?

(Please don't think I'm asking these questions critically. I used to be feircely independant (& stubborn!) and of the opinion that I never needed to be married. The Lord has dealt with me in this, and slowly the desire is coming. I just want to make sure it is channelled in the right direction.)

Thank you, and God bless you!

Hey Heather,

I'm subscribed to your feed, so I read your blog, but I haven't been as involved in your comments as I probably should be!

Hi :)

Still waiting for your book to arrive. Following your blog for... since xanga ;)

I read your blog...even though I'm tardy in commenting. =)

I read your blog, too. My mom gave me your book a couple years ago, but I didn't actually read it until late last year, when I devoured it in a day or two. (I definitely wish I'd read it sooner.) Then, a short while later, I saw a comment you left on Alex and Brett's blog and discovered your website. :-D Your posts have been such a blessing to me since then--particularly the way you see God in everyday events. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. :-)

Hi Heather,
'I know I'm a little late in this, but I read your blog too. I cam across it from Megan Goff's site as well. I have a while before I'm married (I'll be 18 in March), but I still think it's good to learn and grow before hand! =)
