Item description for When Women Walk Alone by Cindi McMenamin...
Overview Offers biblical wisdom and practical steps for women dealing with loneliness, from finding support and celebrating one's uniqueness to single parenting and accepting help, profiling women from the bible and in present day to reveal how times of seclusion can give way to spiritual growth. Original.
More and more women are finding themselves alone in their Christian walk because of life's circumstances?a lack of support from people in her home, work, or church; being left out of the things she used to be included in; being misunderstood and unable to explain. Cindi McMenamin, author of Heart Hunger, offers personal encouragement and practical, biblical steps for gaining strength in times of isolation and becoming resilient to, not resentful toward, loneliness.
Cindi's audience for Women Who Walk Alone is a broad one?single women, women parenting alone, women alone as the spiritual head of their household, women facing challenging life situations, women without close friendships. And her message is timely?every woman feels alone at some point in her life, yet every woman needs someone to grow alongside her and to encourage her in her walk with the Lord.
When Women Walk Alone encourages readers to see alone times as unique opportunities for personal and spiritual growth. Women will discover practical ways to?
find support from other women who feel alone in their lives
celebrate their own uniqueness and grow through the lonely times
gain strength for the challenges of parenting alone
funnel ?loneliness in prayer? into ?a new power in prayer alone with God?
rely on the Lord and others to overcome personal trials
Using examples of biblical and contemporary women who emerged from a time of loneliness stronger and more complete, Cindi also looks at the example of Jesus and the many times He was alone or sought out some ?alone time? to draw strength from His Father.

A Woman's Point of View Aug 1, 2006
Here's a review of this book from a (former) single-mom: WOW! This book is so on the mark. Only inspiration from the Holy Spirit can truly explain how Ms. McMenamin has been able to illustrate the experience of women who find themselves alone (in one way or another)ao accuratley. Cindi has a good grasp on scriputal principles, and so this is a book that I use for my Single Mothers' Support Group/ Bible study. I have devleoped supplemental study guides for each chapter that my group member have found to be helpful. We have truly enjoyed the book, and found it to be helpful toward the Spiritual Formation of many of the group members.
Another great book for women Jan 31, 2003
Cindi has written another remarkable book. Like "Heart Hunger" her focus is on the personal loving relationship we can have with God. She also includes lots of Scripture to assure the reader that this is not "psychobabble" but her words have solid spiritual grounding.
What is new with this book is the hours Cindi has spent interviewing women who have walked alone or are walking alone. Some of the women share their answers and discoveries. Others describe what their alone-ness feels like and the questions that they have. Additionally Cindi looks hard at Deborah, Hagar, Leah and other women in the Bible to see what their lives have to tell us.
This is a practical and spiritual book about women who are alone: single parent, single woman, married to a nonbeliever, married to a believer but missing that idealic "couple worship" time, alone in a difficult trial, restless for something different, a dreamer with little or no suppot but a definite call from God for a ministry.
Cindi explores the pain, the reasons, the benefits, the growth, the messages, etc. of being alone. Things I surely had not considered.
I feel prepared for the next inevitable time I encounter a time when I feel alone by circumstances or not feeling understood by anyone. I feel prepared to help other women I know who are looking for some Christian counsel.
I was also encouraged to hear other women talk about the difficulties of being alone and knowing that I was not the only woman that felt some of these things.
Her final chapter about making "alone" time to be with God was very on the mark and a good finale!
