I'm a 18 year old female who's never dated and, after really having streghtened my faith in the last two years, decided I really wanted to investigate God's plan for singleness, for which reason I purchased this book.
Although the essence of Ludy's message - to "die to self" and surrender all desires to Christ - is a critically important one, the author disqualifies herself from speaking seriously about what she calls "seasons of singleness" because hers (as she concedes on the very first page) was relatively short. This is fine, but I was expecting to read insight from someone who's been in my shoes, so to speak.
Ludy has very good intentions and I think it's wonderful that she's so passionate about issues of purity and"extended seasons of singleness," but the bottom line is that she doesn't have a lot of authority on this topic because she simply hasn't been there.

This book has completely freed me and changed my perspective on the way I view being single. God spoke to me so clearly through it and I did cry for a few days because I was dying to me and becoming alive in who God is calling me to be. THIS IS A MUST READ FOR ANY SINGLE GIRL WHO HAS/IS STRUGGLING WITH LONGING AND LONELINESS AS SHE WAITS FOR GOD'S CHOSEN ONE. I BEG PEOPLE TO READ THIS BOOK OR BUY IT AS A GIFT FOR YOUR FRIEND.

This is the kind of book that the Christian world needs right now. I see so many young ladies that put their lives on hold until they can get married. It makes me sad. Then I see some young ladies that inspire me. I have a cousin in her early 20's, beautiful, bright, energetic and the only cousin in our family that isn't married. So does she pout about it? Throw herself at different guys until she can get one to propose? Goodness, no! She has devoted this stage of her life to the mission field. Something that she won't be able to do when she is married and has kids. She has been to amazing places (Moracco, Thailand, Himalayas, Sudan, etc...) and done amazing things with YWAM. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for her and she is treating her singleness sacredly and turning it over to God.I know another young lady who is likewise single and not rushing it. She decided to take her college classes online this year so that she can move across the state over Labor Day to live with some relatives that had triplets 10 weeks ago. She is making their family her ministry and will take care of their 2 year old, help with the triplets and the housework and cooking all while doing her college classes online. She knows there will be a time when she can't just pick up and move and put her own life on hold for other people. But she can now because she is single and loving it.I asked a single young lady who is a dear friend of mine to read this book and give me her opinion. She said, "It's awesome! It also gave me some great comebacks to all the people that always ask me why I'm not married yet." Leslie writes an amazing book that will strengthen and encourage those that are currently single but don't wish to remain that way. Use the time you have now, treat it sacredly and God will do all in His time.
