Encouraging Word for Singles
April Motl is a pastor’s wife who loves to laugh, loves her man, loves to talk on the phone entirely too long and most of all, loves her Lord. Collaborating with the joint efforts of her husband Eric, the two of them share a ministry dedicated to bringing God’s Word into the everyday lives of married couples, men and women. April writes and teaches for women. When she’s not tapping away at the computer writing, or trying to catch up with the laundry and dishes, she is busy serving as a pastor’s wife. April has been privileged through her own church and ministry outside her local body to share God's Word with women ranging in ages and stages, across denominations, and walks of life. Her passion is to bring God's liberating truth to His Beloved. She teaches God's Word with real life illustrations, humor and practical application. April is a graduate from Southern California Seminary (MRS) and has written for Just Between Us Magazine, Dayspring's (In)courage, and The Secret Place and also writes regularly for crosswalk.com.

Whether you are single right now, or are involved with a single friend or singles ministry, today's give-away is a great resource and blessing!
10 Best Decisions a Single Can Make was written by Bill and Pam Farrel to be an encouragement for singles to embrace all that God has for them during this special and pivotal season of life! The Lord used Pam during this very season in my life and it was through her and Bill's example that my husband and I learned many important facets necessary to our marriage, ministry and life as individuals.
If you're a single, I can't recommend this book enough! If you're a married person, but have felt a tug on your heart toward singles, consider using this book to start a book group at your church. Book groups are one of my favorite discipleship tools because there is enough freedom in the general discussion of the topics the author brings up and also opportunity to add some very purposeful, structured instruction and Bible study to the conversation as well.
As a single girl who had reached a point of wondering if staying the "good-girl" course was reallyworth it, Pam reminded me and the other single gals in our discipleship group, "The LORD God is a sun and shield; no good thing does He without from those who walk uprightly." Psalm 84:11. If you are walking the single journey right now, hang on, dear one. Make those good choices. Lean into your Father. He promises not withhold one, teeny, tiny, single blessing from you!
If you're married - make a point of encouraging a single person in your life toward purity, faith and growth in Christ!
