So, I wrote a book about singleness :) Called Single Conversations to be exact. I’m so excited to announce here on my blog that this book that I’ve been working on and praying about for almost a year now is finally being published– TOMORROW!! Whoo hoo!! I’m super excited about Single Conversations, so I thought I’d share a brief FAQ today about it. :)     1. Who is this book for? I believe any single woman can read this book more »
