The Single Truth

If you are single and struggling with its attendant "stigma," The Single Truth offers you God's liberating truths about singleness. Lori Smith clears away the fog and lies surrounding singleness and challenges you to live a full life and to see your singleness as a part of God's good plan. She powerfully affirms that:

You are deeply loved by God. Marriage isn't better or worse—it's different. You have no need to be ashamed about your singleness. You can be content.

The Single Truth book. Approximately 50 percent of American adults are single  .

Approximately 50 percent of American adults are single. Many of them don’t feel as though they fit in at church. com User, November 6, 2003. This book is really fantastic! A friend of mine did a small group based on the book and although I wasn't able to attend the group I read the book anyway and I am glad I did! It really is honest about how it feels to be a single and for the first time in over 4 years I feel ok about my singleness!

Lori Smith moves seamlessly from romantic daydreams, through a close . Sometimes it was more based on emotion than truth though too which is troublesome.

Lori Smith moves seamlessly from romantic daydreams, through a close questioning of her relationship with God, to battles with her mental and physical health. The book reads as an intimate and honest memoir and has enough to satisfy the non-Christian (like myself) if they choose to look beyond the somewhat unexpected (in a mainstream book at least) pairing of Jane Austen and Christianity. With deep and sometimes heartwrenching honesty, Lori Smith weaves her story and Jane’s together into a wholly unique narrative.

Lori Smith is an adorer of Jane Austen and a member of the Jane Austen Society of North America. She feels connections to Austen on many levels-as a writer, a single woman, an Anglican, and as someone struggling with a mysterious chronic illness. For her last book, A Walk with Jane Austen: A Journey into Adventure, Love, and Faith, Lori spent a month in England tracing Austen's life and works. Customers Also Bought Items By.

Talk about The Single Truth

Finally! A Christian book on singlehood that isn't preachy, sugar-coated, or a thinly-disguised how-to-catch-a-spouse book (Smith states at the beginning, "as if a relationship begun by such a method would be worth having"--right on!) She attacks some of the well-meaning but wrong, and sometimes hurtful, statements from others about our singleness, such as "I know God has just the right man for you, you'll meet him someday" ....None of us knows God's plans for our friends. Or, "God must have something more to teach you". Really? Is spiritual maturity a necessity for marriage? It's not in my church!
She also points out how we tend to trivialize two of the most powerful verses in the Bible: Psalm 37:4 ("Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart"); and Jeremiah 29:11("I know the plans I have for you, says the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future"). By focusing on these verses alone and ignoring the context (David's exaltation not to fret, to trust God, to obey him; Jeremiah's missive to the captives in Babylon telling them God wants them to stay for a while, and to never forget his future plans for the nation of Israel are always good), we trivialize the verses and turn them into sayings that will somehow magically make everything better. Smith goes on to remind us how these verses do show what God does provide when we feel like we are in a holding pattern, something much better than a magic "spell".
I, like Smith, have sometimes loved being single, and sometimes hurt deeply wondering why God has "forgotten" me in this area. I found this book to be empathic but not enabling, true to Biblical principals, and very well written. A special blessing: Smith doesn't leave out widow/ers, single parents, or divorce/es, which, sadly, many Christian books on singlehood do. She also doesn't assume her audience stops after 35. And this 41 year old is very grateful.

Our church singles group read this book together and had really great discussions. The beauty of this book is Lori Smith guides you to a place (if you'll put down your walls and let her) where you want what God wants for you more than what you want for yourself. Once you get there and realize what He wants for you is so much better than what you could ever dream, wow, then He can really do some powerful things in your life!
This book is an easy read and the personal experiences shared by Lori and others are things we can all relate to.

This book was so refreshing. Lori Smith writes with a style that is intensely personal and realistic, but is also rooted in scripture and sound doctrine. She uses the Bible to break down all the fallacies of singlehood and also teaches us how to live and cope with being single in practical ways. This book literally changed my life, and I'm sure it will do the same for you. I really think this should be prerequisite reading for every single Christian. One of the key premises of the book is that being married is not necessarily better or worse than being single- it's just different. Marriage does not bring contentment, so if you are struggling with being content as a single Christian, you will struggle with contentment as a married Christian as well. Contentment is possible, and there is nothing freakish or shameful about being unmarried. God is sovereign and if you have surrendered your life to the Lord and are still single, you are in God's will for your life. You aren't necessarily single because God is still teaching you something, you may just be single because that's God's will for your life right now. Read this book, it's real, it's encouraging, and most of all it is enlightening. God bless Lori Smith!

Really enjoyed most of this book. Some parts were better than others, but enjoyed it all the same. It's rare to find a book that doesn't try and tell you how to not be single. This one tells you how to be satisfied as a single.

This is not a sugar-coated book, saying, "God will give you a mate
in time if you only trust him," etc.
It is an insightful and blunt view of how single Christians should live, accepting their desires and understanding that not everyone will marry.
However she also places the marriage question in a wider context.
Following the tradition of C.S.Lewis, she asks questions that
most modern Christian writers simply ingnore.
Why do horrible things happen to good people? Why are so many of our desires remain unfilled?..and may always be unfilled?
Why do people who do "their own things" often have happy lives, but people who do all the "right things" according to God may
find themselves alone?
This is not a good friend giving words of comfort to fellow singles friends. She writes as a good friend telling single friends what they need to hear.
Lori Smith is a gifted writer, and it is a very enjoyable book to read and skim, but be forewarned she is an adult writing to other adults. Expect uncomfortable questions to be faced head on.

If you are a Christian and you are single I would encourage you to read this. This will encourage you and help you in your walk
