The Christian Counseling and Educational Foundation is an excellent resource for a Scriptural-based approach to life's problems. Their motto is "Restoring Christ to counseling, and counseling to the Church." I have found their materials to be gospel-centered and grace-oriented. They are an incredible help to the church.

CCEF through its publishing arm, New Growth Press, makes available a wide range of booklets that address a host of common problems. I am going to highlight a few of these booklets in this post.
The booklets are sensitive to the life-situation they address, yet also apply the Bible and particularly the Gospel to the problem. I highly recommend them.
This particular booklet "Single and Lonely: Finding the Intimacy You Desire" by Jayne Clark, explores how loneliness, which plagues single young people as much as it does the elderly, sick and widowed, is connected to the gospel. Protecting yourself, and aiming for one or two close friendships usually backfires. Recognizing our acceptance and love found in Christ, we should instead pursue wholeness and healing in a community of Christ-lovers. Practical steps for recognizing and dealing with the problem of loneliness in oneself and others are also included.

This book has taught me so much about how it is ok to be single and how to better myself. I would recommend this book to anyone who is having a hard time being single. This book is also very short, which makes it an easy read!
