Description
							Did you enter adulthood thinking marriage would find you, only to end up at a second-cousin’s wedding, dodging yet another bouquet the night before you turned thirty? Maybe you’ve started wondering if this is the best the single life has to offer. Joy Beth Smith says it’s not—that single life doesn’t have to leave you constantly waiting for “real life” to begin. If you let go of the tired lies weighing you down, you can turn toward truth:

•	You don’t have to be married to be wise. You don’t have to be a mother to love. You don’t have to own a home to be hospitable.
•	Singleness is not meant to be pitied, shamed, fixed, or even ignored. It is to be celebrated.
•	God doesn’t promise you a husband, but he does promise comfort, intimacy, and satisfaction.

With humor, self-awareness, and been-there perspective, Party of One delves into the insecurities and struggles of singleness and encourages you to find the good, the true, and the beautiful, diving headfirst into community and no longer pressing pause on your life.
