Like any other blog, An Abundant Singleness started with an idea.
This blog idea was for single Christian young women. A community where we could encourage each other, a tangible reminder that we are not alone, a place to share the truth of the gospel within the context of the situation we find ourselves in. Really, what I have been searching for and imagine others like me are searching for, too.
But I am scared.
Scared because I do not seem equipped for this. Scared that it will not actually reach my sisters in Christ. Scared to admit my deepest desire. But mostly scared because I find myself single. Still. When I wanted to be not single in a Christian culture that celebrates marriage. Where for four years I lived on a Christian campus where most students were married before they graduated. Where now I am forced to pursue a career and finding an apartment on my own with no husband, no partner in life. So not only am I single, but I have believed the lies that because marriage does not even seem like a possibility after graduation, I am a failure and it is too late for me to ever be married.
And now I am considering proclaiming it to the world.
But I must share the truth with others and myself.
I am 23 years old. I am single. I am a failure, but not because no man has ever liked me enough to pursue me. Rather, I am a failure because I am a sinner. But I have a Savior who loves me so much that He died for me, and through Him I can claim to be a child of God- the exact opposite of failure. I trust in a God that only has what is best for me. So I am a 23 year old single who is reaching out to other singles. And I will not lose hope because only God knows what my future is, and even if it never involves marriage, I will someday spend eternity with God in heaven- my GREATEST desire.
So welcome. I hope you will join me on this journey as I write about the single life and what God is teaching me. But mostly, I hope you will be encouraged, too. Because in Christ, we have abundance despite any of life’s circumstances.

  1. Just found your blog, I'm so looking forward to reading more! I love how honest and real you're being. Being single, as you grow older, especially in a Christian community where marriage is such a big deal and everyone seems to marry so young is difficult. If you haven't, you should read Elisabeth Elliot's book called Passion & Purity. My pastor's wife gifted it to me recently and it touched my heart so much.

    1. Thank you, Kalin! Nice to meet you. Things have been slow as far as posting lately, but that will end as soon as the school year does.
      Yes, I adore Elisabeth Elliot and her book Passion and Purity. It is one of my all time favorites!
