Story Behind the Book
“I was in my mid-thirties, had never married, and was miserable. Until then, I’d spent most of my life looking for happiness at the end of an aisle. I begged God to change things—to give me love, security, and peace…and He did. But it didn’t come in the package I expected. He didn’t give me a husband. Instead, He gave me a series of life lessons about Truth. This book is about those lessons and the new life they brought. A life where everything was different—but the only thing that changed was me.”
Patti Gordon earned her Master’s degree in counseling from the University of Nebraska. She has spent more than ten years as a freelance writer and instructional design consultant. Never married, Patti understands well the joys and struggles of single living. But most importantly, years of walking with the Lord have taught her much about God’s perspective in the midst of the challenges singles face.

A treasure hunt of the heart. Aug 17, 2006
Don't be fooled by the title. This book is not just for singles. It's for anyone looking for purpose, love, fulfillment, or a place of belonging. Patti takes you along on her personal treasure hunt as she finds all that Jesus prayed in John 17:20-26 for the Father to give to those who will become his disciples. Patti found love when she discovered that God loves her as He has loved his Son. She found purpose and fulfillment in the perfection of oneness with God through Jesus. In her journey Patti finds her new home where she belongs with Jesus in His Kingdom. Patti has found the Kingdom of Heaven and it's in her heart. In this book Patti obeys her commission to preach the Gospel of the Kingdom, and she does it by candidly sharing her own experiences in finding oneness with Jesus.
I laughed, I cried, I prayed... and sent a copy to my mother! Aug 15, 2006
I can't begin to do justice in describing this book. Patti expresses the hearts of many women-and not just single women, either. She shows us insight into the love our Lord has for us-in such an inspiring and real way. I couldn't put this book down! Thank you Patti, for your honesty and transparency- and for inspiring the realization of our Hope in Him and how much we are loved in a very real way.
What a true heart for Jesus Patti has!! Aug 15, 2006
My husband and I met Patti a few weeks ago and we both fell in love with her heart for our Lord, Jesus Christ. Then I read her book and see even more how much she loves Jesus and how deeply and passionately she wants to share Him with everyone! I LOVED this book. It made me cry, laugh and feel such great joy and peace. What a loving and merciful God we serve!! Patti does a fantastic job at relating to her audience whether married or single, she teaches what is truly important in this life here on Earth and how wonderful and forgiving and readily available Jesus is to each one of us. I thank God for that canceled flight to Omaha that day so that God could bring this precious woman into our lives and allow us to experience Jesus' love and grace in a brand new way! Thank you Patti for your obedience to your calling and for what you suffered through in order to bring this book to so many who will be blessed by it. You will have many crowns in heaven to lay at the feet of Jesus! Keep the books coming Patti! I know what is going on my Christmas giving list to my girlfriends this year!!! Sandee and Mike
Very Touching and Inspirational Book Jul 2, 2006
I laughed, I cried. I reflected, was challenged, and learned. I praised the Lord!! Patti Gordon's book, Press Play, is a brilliant work clearly inspired by Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ through His Holy Spirit. In the book she offers 14 short stories from her life that highlight our humanity and God's power, might, mercy, love and faithfulness. God has given her a wonderful(!) way with words, great insight into human needs and emotions and a growing relationship with Himself.
This book is wonderful, and a delight to read. I highly recommend it to both those who are single and those who are married.
"...when He, the Spirit of truth has come, He will guide you into all truth, for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak..." (John 16:13).
The only Satisfying relationship! Jun 28, 2006
This book was a true delight! Each night I reserved one chapter for reading despite the temptation to finish it all in one sitting. I wanted to savor each chapter.
The author pours out her heart in a way that engages any audience...not just singles. I enjoyed the book so much that I bought copies for married and single friends, as well as a recent high school graduate.
The words in this book beautifully articulate the condition of the human heart; broken and longing. The author leads you to the hope that is found only in Christ Jesus, the One who was designed to fulfill these longings. Each page drips with tenderness and transparency. What a sweet encouragment that no matter what one's circumstances may be, there lies an unshakeable hope found only in relationship with God the Father and His blessed Son!
