Can I introduce you all to a book today that has encouraged and challenged me? I hope you said yes (cause I’m going right into it 😉). This ebook is called Single Conversations and is written by the beautiful Kara Beth from Joy Because Grace (I give you permission to leave this post for just a second to go check out her blog!). Her blog has been an encouragement to me, and when she was looking for a launch team for this new book, I was so excited! First of all, she had written a book! (every blogger’s dream, right?) Second of all, I knew it would be so insightful. Lastly, I’m single and knew that her wisdom would be such a blessing.
Kara knows how it feels to be single, so you know that she is writing from experience. Just this year, she began dating a godly guy, so she’s been on both sides of the topic. She knows what it is like to long for a relationship, and she also knows what it is like to have that relationship. She tells her own stories from the time she was a young girl just beginning to notice boys, to now that she’s in a godly relationship. It truly feels like a conversation with a wise friend!
I wanted to share with you the table of contents so that you can see what all this book entails!

Good, right? Honestly, I think I could just end this blog post right now and you’d want to go read it! Who doesn’t want answers to their questions about singleness and boys? But I wanted to highlight my favorite parts of the book.
Singleness is good
Kara uses verses from the Bible to explain how being single can be a good thing, and not a curse. It actually can be a blessing!
Marriage is not when life begins
I think so many of us equate the beginning of our “real lives” to marriage, when that’s really not the case. Our lives are one big story, and it began the moment we were born. Actually, we’re a part of a huge story that began when God created this world. Kara explains all of this and more!
How to wait well
Okay, so we know we should wait for that godly guy, right? But how?? Kara gives practical tips on how to do just that.
What to do when you like a guy
So you like this certain guy, but aren’t sure how to act around him, or even what to do with your feelings. Kara tackles this question and I just love her answer!
Praying for your future husband
I think the book is worth her price for this section alone (seriously, she could have charged so much more for this amazing book!). I’ve prayed for my future husband for years now, but she gave me a new idea + so many prayer prompts!
Well, there you have it. My complete and full review of Single Conversations. Sounds amazing, right? Well the good news is that it is only $5!! Such a steal! I hope you decide to purchase it and that it encourages and blesses you as much as it did me.
If you have any more questions, you can read Kara’s full blog post about the book! It’s in a Q&A format.
