Is being single a great adventure? Or is being single lonely and frustrating? What is God's "word" for your life in singleness? In ten studies Ruth Goring leads you to explore these questions. You will learn to listen deeply to God, identify the gifts your life offers, cope effectively with temptation, make space for relationships, and grow into a sense of belonging. God is calling you today to a life of joy, peace and love. Being single doesn't mean waiting to answer that call. This LifeGuide Bible Study in IVP's revised format features questions for starting group discussions and for meeting God in personal reflection, as well as a new "Now or Later" section following each session to help you act on what you learn.
