Christine Aichele5 Stars Out Of 5August 3, 2005Christine AicheleThis book was truly a blessing to read. It helped me as a single woman to take the focus off myself and place it on serving my Lord the best that I can. I have recommended this book to other singles in my church and they have all received a blessing from reading it. As a single, we have opportunities to serve that someone who is married does not have. This book helped me to realize that I am important to God and need to serve Him now while I am single and not to wait until I am married.

Tell us a little about yourself. Being single was never my plan! But the youngest of four children, and the only one not married, I'm continually learning to make my desires whatever God's are. I'm a graduate of Cedarville College and have taught elementary school for several years. In all my free time (!) I've volunteered in several capacities in my local church -- among them, coordinating our collegiate/singles ministry.
What was your motivation behind this project? Writing this book was a spiritual journey as God walked with me through the toughest parts of being single...and I discovered that His abundant life is for ME, with no marital strings attached.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? A perspective of what the real pursuit ought to be. Too often singles invest time & energy chasing the "better gift" of marriage, and ignore the fact that God has gifted them (at least for the time being)with a unique and extremely usable gift. I want to see people maximize their singleness for God's glory.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? My church & family are highest on the list of influential people. They have shaped my passions & taught me by example how to go in pursuit of what's most valuable. My favorite authors are Max Lucado, Philip Yancey, and Brock/Bodie Thoene.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: Life is too precious to invest in the wrong pursuits.
