Title: Singled Out: Finding Contentment when it’s just you and the Lord
Author: Nikki Derouin
Source: Book Crash http://www.bookcrash.com/
Number of Pages: 101
My Rating: 3 out of 5 stars (this rating is a rough-estimate, as I didn’t finish the book)
Description of the book:
Are you struggling to find your purpose in life? Are you in a relationship that you feel is pulling you away from God? Are there no “options” in sight, and you are starting to fear that God may have forgotten about your heart and your dreams? Singled Out was written with the sincere desire of encouraging you in your walk with the Lord, motivating you to search your heart, and challenging you to wholeheartedly commit your life to Him! Remember, regardless of our relationship status, we must be single-hearted in our service to Christ — our Savior and our First Love.
Well, as above mentioned, I did not finish this book. I am just not in a spot in my life right now where I could focus on it.
I requested this book mainly for the purpose to review it for friends who like these type of books, and I had hoped to give a helpful review. But to be honest, this type of book is not my “style”, and I have a hard time reading them just because they don’t really minister me. I don’t want to give an unfair review just because I don’t really get into these books that help with ‘contentment while being single’ – I am sure this book could do a lot of good in young ladies lives, and be helpful. I got about half way in the book; some of the things the author spoke of were good, however I did notice that she was kind of ‘promoting’ finding “ourselves”, but didn’t continue on the importance of finding ourselves in Christ, which I think is so important – everyone needs to know and understand who they are in Christ first and foremost before worrying about finding their spouses.
Like I said, you may find this book very helpful. It is pretty short, and therefore a pretty easy read. It’s sort of along the same lines as “Before You Find Prince Charming” by Sarah Mally. How to use the time of singleness before marriage for God.
Thank you to the publishers and Book Crash for allowing me to review this book. :)
