Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In a culture that has grown unkind to marriage and the marriage-minded, Jennifer Marshall's analysis of the facts we live with, and the faith that sustains us, offers guidance and hope for young women. You may be single, but you do not have to be alone. Jennifer Marshall shows the way.

William J. Bennett, Washington Fellow-The Claremont Institute; Host-Bill Bennett's Morning in America

Jennifer Marshall rescues the dreary notion of contentment from passive resignation and recharges it with a robust faith in God that results in vigorous, purposeful living.... Singles and non-singles alike will find this brand of contented living liberating, energizing, and fulfilling.

Carolyn Custis James, author of When Life and Beliefs Collide and Lost Women of the Bible

If we value marriage, we should value and mentor those among us who want to get there but are not there yet. In Now and Not Yet

Synopsis:

Rich and inspirational lessons from single women who are on a journey between what is and what God has yet to send their way are presented in this reminder to claim God's purpose not someday, but today. Original.

Synopsis:

Nine out of ten young women say they're hoping for marriage,

but three out of ten women are still single at thirty.

The difference between life here andlife 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 newterritory with purpose and contentment. Combining profiles of individual women, observations on today's culture, and spiritual insights, author Jennifer Marshall presents a unique perspective on the singlewoman's journey.

Make sense of life in the gap between expectations and reality

Singleness may be an unexpected in-between, but it's much morethan 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.

From the Trade Paperback edition.
