Still single at 40.
Many single Christian women desiring marriage find themselves dealing with disappointment due to unexpected singleness, especially when they believe God designed them for marriage. How should we view unwanted singleness? Is it God’s plan or His punishment? Is it His gift or our fault? And if we feel disappointed, does that mean we’re breaking the biblical principle to be content with our lives?
These are a few of the questions Joanne Hofmeister seeks to answer in Not Meant to Be, which chronicles her own quest at the age of 40 to reconcile the reality of her unfulfilled desires with the faith-filled expectation for marriage she had for her life. Through the the stories of other single women and insights from biblical examples, she validates the feelings of loss that many women experience and uncovers God’s heart for them in the process.
Joanne’s honesty, vulnerability, and commitment to truly knowing God while sharing her own journey through disappointment leads others to find hope in God’s redemptive nature.
