Review 1 for Did I Kiss Marriage Goodbye?: Trusting God with a Hope Deferred
This book is written to singles, specifically women, who are wondering the dreaded question… will I ever get married? McCulley writes from her own perspective as a Christian single woman in her 40’s, sharing her highs and lows and her journey with God through them all.
McCulley does open up and share stories and situations that I know we can all relate to when it comes to being single. I appreciate that she reminded us that first we are called to represent Christ. So she puts it out there… “How am I honouring God through my singleness?” Our relationship with God should be first and foremost and then truly the ‘rest’ will fall into place in God’s timing and perfect plan.
Topics includes: how to deal with the hard questions, seeing the gift of ‘singleness’. She also provides a guide to relationships through scripture from Proverbs 31. The quality and characteristics listed in scripture are a great guide to us as women on how God has called us to live in everyday life.
I enjoyed the read, as a single woman in her 30’s, however I felt like McCulley took a lot of quotes, some very long, threw in her own random thoughts and then put them together into one book. Although I enjoyed many of the quotes I felt at times McCulley dug in pretty deep theologically and that’s when I tuned out. I didn’t feel that was necessary.
I did however close the book feeling encouraged on this journey of singleness.

Preparing for the future while using the time that God has given us, is a hard balance to achieve. Carolyn McCulley practically gives suggestions on how to achieve this goal. What I enjoyed most about this book is that ideas I had were mentioned and encouraged. "Did I Kiss Marriage Goodbye?" Is a God honoring book full of Biblical principles for Christians to live by.

Simply AMAZING!!!!. This book is perfect for single women 20 years and older, questionning themselves about their future because they are still single. Even for married women or for those who are in a relationship with a man, this book is a focus on the real values. This book changed my view about this area of life. Before I read this book, I had a good ''philosophy'' about marriage and singleness, but, wow, this book totally gave me a new insight about it. This book makes the reader think and reflect, going right to the heat. Don't be afraid of the title of the book, b this book will be a total blast in your life. I hignly recommend it to every young women.
