For me personally, most of what the author talked about wasn't relevant to my own journey through singleness, and I need other books that revealed more about how my own broken past affect my relationships rather than being frustrated with being single.

I felt like this book was more about becoming someone who was so obedient to God he blesses you with a man, rather than being your best self in spite of having someone, and enjoying that time of singleness.

I also really liked how there are many practical ideas to help the readers strive toward godliness.

Like for diligence, we can diligently pursue a ministry of teachi This is an amazing book... It really reminds me how I need to develop my character with God's help, instead of just wasting time.
