Now and Not Yet: Making Sense of Single Life in the Twenty-First Centuryby Jennifer Marshall
Synopses & Reviews
Nine out of ten young women say theyre hoping for marriage,
but three out of ten women are still single at thirty.
The difference between life here and life hoped for can be disillusioning-and cultural changes have made single life in the twenty-first century more confusing than ever. Now and Not Yet offers guidance for navigating this new territory with purpose and contentment. Combining profiles of individual women, observations on todays culture, and spiritual insights, author Jennifer Marshall presents a unique perspective on the single womans journey.
Make sense of life in the gap between expectations and reality
Singleness may be an unexpected in-between, but its much more than a holding pattern. Now and Not Yet is about making the most of the time between now and the not yet for which so many women hope.
The Thinking Woman's Guide Through Singledom You're looking for answers, but you're stuck between now and not yet . Thanks to the "milepost mindset," taught from Kindergarten through high school, you continually look forward to the next big thing (in school, just being in the next grade!). Then, when Destination Marriage looms as the next milepost, it's more than a little disorienting to detour into prolonged singleness. But where autopilot ends, the pilgrimage begins. Jennifer Marshall offers rich lessons from women who are on that pilgrimage, observations about today's cultural landscape, and guidance for redeeming this unexpected time between now and the not yet for which you hope. Claim God's purpose and direction for your life...even when there's not a milepost in sight.
Has reality detoured from the plan? Is Destination Marriage nowhere on the horizon? In this time of unexpected prolonged singleness, claim God's purpose and live victoriously between now and not yet .
Is Destination Marriage nowhere on the horizon? For those in this time of unexpected prolonged singleness, Marshall reveals how to claim Gods purpose and live victoriously between now and not yet.
