Item description for If Singleness Is a Gift, What's the Return Policy? by Holly Virden & Michelle McKinney Hammond...
Overview This down-to-earth, often humorous guide redirects singles from putting their lives on hold and waiting for a mate to living each day to the fullest now.
When it comes to singleness, Holly Virden and Michelle McKinney Hammond have been there, done that. These two amazing women don't regard the single life as a cross to bear, but rather an amazing opportunity to take advantage of all life has to offer and to discover their God-ordained purpose. While acknowledging the pitfalls singles sometimes face, they celebrate the advantages that also come with singleness and validate it as a true gift from God. Tackling topics such as lust, loneliness, discouragement, and bitterness, the authors use humor and sound biblical teaching as a point of reference. Unique features include a "Dating 101" section, a Q&A format on hot topics, and an open, honest dialogue between the two authors.

Worthwhile Read Jun 13, 2005
Generally, I am not a person that likes self-help books; I find them to be boring, long winded, and not worth the effort. But, this book is different. It's interesting, funny, and easy to understand.
Because I'm single and almost thirty I'm constantly reminded by family/friends of my single status. I developed a of stress and self-doubt. This book helped me focus on the important things in a Christians life and to know that my single status is not a curse, but a blessing.I found out that the thing I thirst for is not marriage, but a better relationship wiith God.
In no way is this book a "stay single forever" book, but a enjoy where you are now book. Both authors are single and satisfied, but also open and anticipating a human husband.
If you're single, stressed, and confused this is a good book to read. It will help you see the importance of your single life and look forward to the blessings to come.
Highly Recommended Aug 30, 2003
This book was written by Holly Virden with Michelle McKinney Hammond's input. Because I am a Michelle McKinney Hammond fan, I purchased this book without reviewing or researching it as I do authors I am unfamiliar with because I trust her recommendations.
This book is one of my favorite books on the topic of "singleness." Though both writing styles were different, the authors complimented each other.
Ms. McKinney Hammond hit the nail on the head as she responds to our constant questioning if Mr. Right got away by responding "I doubt it. No one can snatch what God has for you. If you passed it by, God is able to bring you full circle back to that place again. He does it with every other lesson we try to skip. No, I dare say that you are exactly where you should be right now. Be patient, and he will come not a moment too soon or a second too late."
It is refreshing to find authors who tell it like it is without sugar-coating the truth.
