Being single and 35 wasn’t part of the plan. That is, it wasn’t part of Emily Stimpson’s plan. Her plan was marriage, babies, and homeschool co-ops.
But God didn’t get the memo.
Instead, He gave her a great job as a Catholic writer, a beautiful old home to call her own, and a small army of godchildren. He also gave her two editors at Emmaus Road Publishing who believed Emily knew a thing or two about the single years from which other young women could benefit–women who, like Emily, believe God is calling them to marriage but find themselves waiting for Mr. Right a bit longer than they expected to wait.
Somehow, those editors convinced Emily to go along with their plan (she swears no alcohol was involved), and the result is a book unlike any other singles book on the market today.
Steeped in the Church’s teachings on the feminine genius, marriage, and the theology of the body, The Catholic Girl’s Survival Guide is chock full of practical insights on the nitty-gritty “how to” of the single years. With both wit and wisdom, it helps women address some of their most pressing questions about singleness, including:
- Why am I still single?
- Is there any such thing as a “Single Vocation”?
- What is authentic femininity and what’s so great about it in the first place?
- How do I date as an adult without losing my sanity or my soul?
- Why shouldn’t I throw in the towel on chastity?
- How do I make decisions about school, work, and finances when there’s no husband or babies on the immediate horizon?
- How do I deal with all my married friends and their children?
- And what does it take to battle the Single Girl Blues?
As hopeful as it is honest, The Catholic Girl’s Survival Guide for the Single Years is the perfect companion for women whose journey to “I do” is turning out to be a longer one than they (or their mothers) would have liked.
