    Great for women who need a reminder

    Great for women who need a reminder that it's better to be single than with the wrong man! Elsa paints a great picture of a healthy woman's perspective when it comes to choosing a mate. She approaches her task with realism, knowing no relationship is perfect, but with high hopes to equip women with wisdom needed to make good choices.

    A must read for any single female waiting on God's best!

    I was initially given this book by a friend. I'm a 29yr old single mom and to say that I didn't choose my mate wisely is the understatement of the century. Deeply desiring to wait on God's best for my life, I read this book, hoping that it would add to what the word of God teaches me about waiting on God. I was so inspired by this book, I went on the lead 20 women through the book, it's relational, practical and thought provoking. I enjoy Elsa's style of writing, and look forward to her upcoming release.

    great book! the surveys at the end of each chapter really are an eye-opener. great for women who are looking to approach the next relationship the right way. i would not hesitate to buy any book written by elsa kok. she's a leader in getting information across in a 'usable' manner.

    Great insight for single women

    After meeting Elsa at a local Single Parent workshop, I was very impressed with her honesty, integrity & insight. I purchased her book, Settling for Less than God's Best & immediately read it upon returning home. What an encouragement to me! Thanks, Elsa, for putting my priorities in order. You have given me some great tools for future consideration.

    Author with a heart

    You can tell this woman has a heart for god and for women. She uses the stories of real women to guide others down the right path. I will certainly keep an eye out for other works by this woman. She has blessed me with this book.
