Overview

A happy, successful, God-pleasing life comes in a variety of packages. "And contrary to what our churches, married friends, society, and nosy Aunt Marge may tell us, that includes singleness."
In this up-front book packed with girl talk and plenty of pep, Camerin Courtney reveals how she transformed from a self-conscious single girl to an I-am-single-hear-me-roar woman. While she admits that she still has "singleness stinks" days, Courtney doesn't indulge in pity parties or offer readers a guide on finding Mr. Right. Table for One is, instead, an optimistic, up-beat look at the many emotions, expectations, joys, frustrations, and privileges of singleness. It shows how to dive into God's plan and purposes for this phase of life--whether it lasts for four years or forever.
Fun and encouraging sidebars sprinkle the text, covering everything from must-see movies to a list of great things about singleness (i.e., "If we buy floral sheets, no one complains.") This savvy, girlfriend-to-girlfriend guide to singleness will delight and inspire single women. It offers great insight for friends, families, and church leaders who want to encourage them as well.

About the Author

Camerin Courtney is an editor and writer for Today's Christian Woman magazine and a popular columnist for the Singles Channel of ChristianityToday.com. When she's not writing or helping her suburban Chicago church launch a Gen-X ministry, she enjoys hanging out at coffee shops, bookstores, movie theaters, and antique furniture stores-alone or with friends. Camerin says "there's some sort of Eiffel Tower" in every room of the apartment she shares with her pet parakeet, Mr. Right.
