This was a fantastic book to read as a single. I read this book about a year or so before I met the man I would eventually marry and it was so inspiring. It helped me to occupy myself and my mind with other things besides "is this guy the one?" or "God why am I am still single?" I would recommend it to any single person, especially women.

This bookwas abosultely incredible...I ordered this book from black expressions I needed four books and already figured out what I wanted so I chose anything else and it happened to be this book...it sat in my book shelf for almost a month. Well down and out recently saved and just wanted to take myself away i was passing my book shelf and picked it up and said let me give it a try...the title of the book really turned me off from it because I was thinking I don't need anyone to tell me what to do until love find me. Well anyway for 2 to 3 days straight I couldn't put the book down. I made a mental note to put it away for my daughter when she becomes of age. Thank you

I think EVERY saved and single female who desires to be married someday should read this book!!!

The one jarring note is her insistence that it's the woman that is responsible for maintaining sexual purity in the relationship. Which begs the question but what about the guy? You ever notice guys say, "She's not wife material. She slept with me on the first date!" and conveniently forget that while she slept with him, he also slept with her!?? It never ceases to amaze me how forgiving Christian women are when it comes to men not maintaining THEIR sexual purity but are so hard on themselves for their indiscretion. One author (not this one, thank goodness) even implied that a woman should keep herself pure not because the Bible commands it but rather because "men sleep with women but marry virgins". The same author even boasted that that's how she got her man! Well, I hate to say this to you. But you got a lemon of a husband. As one MALE Chrisian author had said, if a guy showed such lack of self control before the marriage, what makes you think he'll all of a sudden gain self control AFTER the marriage? This author although better, still belongs to the "men can't be responsible, it's the woman's responsibility" school of thought. But what does the Bible say about this? It says BOTH should keep themselves pure. I'll go by what the bible says. Not what some man hungry author says. Read single books written by MEN. They're better and come across as more REAL.

This book is a true jewel. The text is straightforward and supported with scripturally-based stories. I particularly enjoyed the last 3 chapters -- the insight was absolutely profound! It made me feel much better about myself and my decisions regarding relationships. I have recommended it to all of my single friends. Kudos to Michelle!

This book is the best relationship book I have ever read. This book not only educates you with your spirtual relationship but how to have a successful natural relationship. I enjoy the setting and unique style you use to express your thoughts and surely most if not all women can relate to what you are writing. I loved it so much I am ordering one for all the young ladies I know that it can help. Thank you Ms. Hammond for allowing GOD to use you to write such an inspirational book.

Michelle lays it down firmly, succinctly, and poetically. This is a must read for every single Christian woman, especially those who are divorced, parenting, and pursuing a new relationship. A no-nonsense guide to the proper mind-set for dating, I found 'What to Do' to be a delightful and insightful tool applicable to daily living. Thanks to McKinney Hammond for a job well done.

I don't usually write reviews but I had to take a second to tell you how AMAZING and totally sent by God this book is. It is a MUST READ for any person seeking to understand how this relationship thing really works (or should work). God has a plan for His children in all aspects of life. We just have to learn His word AND follow it!! Easy, huh? Well, reading and absorbing this book makes it a little easier. Enjoy it! It'll change your way of thinking ... if you let it!!!

Michelle really brings it home in 'What To Do', the book was given to me as a Valentines gift from one of my senior Sisters in Christ in 1997, I read it then and thought it was cute, but didn't take it to heart. I recently re-read the book this year(2002)and let me just say that as a wiser more serious Christian at 41 years old, it has really helped me to come to grips with the errors that I've made in my relationships. Thank you Michelle, for helping me to understand my role as Christian woman.

THIS IS A GREAT BOOK. I AM STILL READING IT-BUT IT IS HELPING ME REALIZE THAT THE ONLY WAY FOR A RELATIONSHIP TO TRULY WORK IS THAT YOU MUST FOLLOW GOD'S DIRECTIONS AND HE WILL BLESS YOU IN THE END FOR DOING SO. I AM CURRENTLY IN A VERY SERIOUS COMMITED RELATIONSHIP, AND READING THIS BOOK AND TAKING THE STEPS OUTLINED IN THIS BOOK IS BRINGING MY MAN AND I CLOSER ON A HIGHER LEVEL.

Thank you Lord for blessing Michelle to write an awesome and annointed book. I feel this book really helps us women find and know who we are in Christ. She uses God's Word to help you in all areas of life. She also helps us women strengthen him. In the back of the book, she also a Study Guide that also helps you use Scripture to over come and be who you should be in Christ!

What A Blessing! This is such a wonderful book. The Lord brought this book into my life at a time when I really needed to read it. This book gave me clarity on dating, relationships & dealing with my singleness. I wish that this book had came out 10 years ago. This book is a bible study as well. While reading this book, I developed a thirst for God's Word. Everything Michelle writes is backed up with scripture. She emphasizes being the woman that God has called us to be. Truly a wonderful book! I have recommended it to everyone that I know!

This book changed my life. Michelle seemed to know exactly how I was feeling at that hard time in my life we tend to call singleness. She encourages you in so many ways to see that 1. you aren't the only one that has gone through this time in your life and 2. that singleness is NOT a curse but a blessing from God. Prepare yourself and seek after God and all will fall into place at the exact time it's supposed to.

I thank God for leading me to this book. I was so tired of waiting for Mr. Right. The author seemed to know exactly how I felt. I followed the suggestions in this book and left my search for the perfect mate up to the Lord. Now I am marrying the man of my dreams - God's perfect match for me.

I just finished this book and I loved it. It offers so many helpful hints and the book itself is empowering. Recommended to anyone who just got out of a relationship and is looking for the 'right' relationship.

Michelle McKinney Hammond has a great ability to help the reader to better understand God's perspective on singleness and waiting. She has made me realize that it's OK to hold out for the man of my dreams (or God's dreams)- in fact God demands it. This is the best book I have read and I look forward to reading the rest of her books.
