Posts I adored:
One by One: Welcoming the singles in your church by Gina (3/5) : This book tells you how singles feel isolated in the church that is so often geared to married people. Even though it is very straight forward the author is not trying to accuse or blame married people for all the church problems regarding singles. It just shows that singles have been isolated and rejected in the church. If you love singles or are single I recommend it.
Party of One: Truth, Longing, and the Subtle Art of Singleness by Joy Smith (4/5 ) : This book was so intriguing. This book brings up topics that I have never heard discussed in church before. It really exposed me to new ideas. It discusses purity culture and how it can negatively effect our lives. It talks about how to deal with the pain of singleness. It teaches how to TRULEY be content in singleness. It emphasizes the idea of Biblical womanhood apart from marriage. As a single person it made me feel less alone in the Body of Christ.
Annabelle’s Creation (4/5) – An evil spirit gets out and messes with orphan girls. This was definitely a very captivating scary movie.
When Sparks Fly (3/5) – A girls bff and her ex boy friend get engaged. She is asked to be the maid of honor. She agrees but then realizes she is still in love with her ex. I absolutely adored this cheesy hallmark chick flick.
