Recently I had the opportunity to read Savoring Single by Shelley Black, and it as very encouraging! I was able to be a part of the blog tour for this book, and I'm glad I did. I love how encouraging this book is for all areas concerning singleness, and how Shelley encourages girls to live this season to the fullest, whether/not we ever get married! A key point that I took away from this book, was that our desire to be loved and to have a relationship is a normal part of us as humans, but our desires will never be satisfied in anything/anyone outside of Jesus Christ. In every season of life, we’ll long for other things, but what we really need is Jesus. The only thing I didn't like about this book is that Shelley used new versions (The MSG, NLT, TPT) in the book, which can have things that are added to / taken away from the actual Bible. However, even though I didn't like that about the book, that was not a reason I would not read/recommend this book!
I’m not single. In fact, I’ve been married for several decades. Nevertheless, my heart was touched reading this book. Not because I developed empathy for the author, but because the truths taught are relevant to everyone. Savoring Single does have several chapters that deal with being content with being single, and yet even those chapters are so relevant to others. The importance of living a life with intimacy with God and being surrendered to God applies to every Christian. And we should never put our value and sense of worth in any except the God who loves us. The book is filled with scripture verses to back up the author’s experience and advice. It is a Bible study and a testimony of God’s work. I am blessed for having read this book and have come away with some things the Lord spoke to my heart about. My recommendation for who reads this book is that every middle school girl and older should read this. And anyone who desires a closer relationship with God should read it. Just be aware that with it being written for single women, there will be parts of it that don’t apply to you.

The fact I received this book for free does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Great book! Truly offers insight to the things on this generation of young girls' hearts. She uses the Word to back up all she says and encourages women with Godly truth.
