Those mini bio's are so encouraging. I read them a bit ago and was so challenged to live by faith more because of the examples of those who have gone before me. This site is highly reccomended reading on my reading list too as they are life changers for sure!

I agree, single women are in so many different situations. Some times after a woman gets to her early twenties it is not healthy for her to be in her family enviroment anymore. Sometimes God wants to stretch her beyond these horizons into new situations. God is free to guide women into new living arrangements in His timing. A single woman does need protection and guidance from wise church members and mentors, yet this guidance and protection does not automatically mean living in your parents house. It means a heart-bent towards hearing and applying the Godly wisdom and counsel of those who are more experienced. Single women aspiring to be wise stewards of God's resources as you state should consider that houses do provide a very high investment value that often appreciates considerably. As you point out the Proverbs 31 description encourages wise use of investments. Thanks for posting this.

Excellent advice...It is so important to examine our hearts and ask God to give us pure and holy motives in our relationships---as well as in all areas of life! This is a very helpful list of questions!

Good articles. It is humbling to remember that anyone is capable of unfaithfulness. Just like David in the Bible. We certainly are not more spiritual than him.
Totally agree!! :)
Amen. I appreciated this alot: "A peaceful heart is the hallmark of a godly woman." How true. When I see an truly wise and godly woman she has an air of confidence and trust in the Lord: it equals a beautiful tranquility that is totally from God's Spirit in them! Thanks for the reminder.

This is so true. The world so quickly deludes us as Believers into a false security. Good reminder, thanks!
While normally I find early mornings a great way to have alone time with God if I am at home, while I am at college it is not as good of an idea because I am rarely able to go to bed before 12:30 or 1 so getting up at 7 is about as early as possible for this stage of my life It is a great blessing to be disciplined in seeking God's face early...thats Biblical for sure. The Korean church apparantly has 5am prayer services every morning! What an example!

Thats an amazing story! What an encouragement to pray for our future spouses regularly. Even if God does not grant that we can know that it is because of God's plan. He knows best.

We need more reformed and charismatic churches. There is such a tendency for people to forget the indweliing presence and ministry of the Spirit in the church and life of believers. Thanks for sharing this aspect of your church. It is also great that your church is praying for the people to stop filtering women through this cultures grids. The culture is ungodly and very demeaning to women, Christians have such wonderful examples of what true femininty is and what a glorious thing it can be if lived according to God's standards
I am sure she is recieving great spiritual rewards for her service although difficult. Its exciting to hear of Christians willing to give up comforts here.
