Publisher's Description

What are the benefits of being single?




Overview


While it s devastatingly easy to harp on the negatives of being single you hate eating dinner by yourself, here comes another holiday with no one to bring home, the prospective candidates in your singles group are a bunch of freaks the truth is that there s a lot that s quite good about the single life.

What can I appreciate and enjoy during this stage of my life? How can I stay grounded in reality? Can I be just friends with the opposite sex? What can I do to make good use of my time? What s the difference between loneliness and solitude?

This study will explore these questions, culling perspectives from various writers and examining different passages from God s Word to develop a positive outlook on singleness.

Discussing the importance of knowing the difference between lonlieness and solitude, having friends for accountability and support, and leaning on God.
