Welcome to the new Purposeful Singleness!

If you’re a regular visitor to the Purposeful Singleness website, or were in the past, you’ll notice right away the site looks different! As many of you probably know, the site went dormant over the last number of years, but is now being resurrected for our continued conversations about living lives that are purposeful and meaningful, as God created us to live! I hope you’ll come often to join in on the conversation!

What’s the Same?

Most of the Articles from the old site have been moved here, and you’ll find them under the Articles menu item at the top of every page .

If you are receiving the daily Chronological Bible Reading Schedule by email, you will continue to receive those, and eventually the information about the schedule and links to the readings will also be moved here.

There will continue to be a Bookstore, but please be patient as titles are added. A number of good books for singles have been published recently, so stay tuned for links to those.

In full disclosure, all items you purchase through our Amazon links (not just the books we link to) provide Purposeful Singleness with a small commission, at no additional cost to you. Thanks so much to you who use our Amazon links to do your Amazon shopping!

What’s Different?

Like many sites, Purposeful Singleness has moved to a blogging platform and format. Instead of weekly devotionals there will be regular blog posts of various types, including some of the same inspirational nature as the prior devotionals.

There is no discussion board or forum, but there is the opportunity for comments after every article and blog post. I’m looking forward to continuing our conversations and discussions in this new format.

What’s Coming?

One of the first new features coming in the near future will be the introduction of Life Coach Shari Baer, who will assist anyone interested in discovering their God-given purpose and in writing a personal Purpose Statement. I have found this to be extremely beneficial to me in getting “unstuck” and finding direction into the very work and activities which God designed and created me for and which make my heart sing! I’m eager to share this opportunity with the Purposeful Singleness community!

Many have asked me over the years to put together devotional books for singles, so the first of those will also be available in the near future. These books will compile some of the devotionals published on the website in the past, but edited and updated and published as both Kindle and paperback formats so you can take them with you and read anywhere, as well as give them as gifts.

Further down the road is the possibility of having a membership section to the website where conversations aren’t exposed to the public, and where we can form real friendships (the emphasis being on friendship rather than dating) and engage in online courses and Bible studies together.

Please be sure to subscribe to our mailing list, if you haven’t already, to receive information on these exciting new developments as they take place!

Introductions

I’d love if you’d introduce yourself in the comments below, or say “hi” if you’re a former PSer! I’ve missed my interaction with all of you and look forward to picking up where we left off, as well as meeting many new people as we intereact here on Purposeful Singleness!

About

Mission Statement

PURPOSEFUL SINGLENESS is dedicated to transforming loneliness into purpose by providing inspiration, encouragement, and support for Christian singles who may or may not feel called to singleness, but who desire to live purposeful lives for Jesus Christ.

Statement of Faith

WE BELIEVE…

that the Bible was inspired by God and is His holy, infallible, authoritative and final Word for us, revealing:

  • that there is only one God, eternally existing as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit;
  • that Jesus Christ is God’s sinless Son, was born of a virgin, died and rose again from the dead, ascended to heaven, and will some day return again to gather His people who have accepted Him by faith as their Saviour and Lord;
  • that God created people in His image, to have eternal life through Jesus Christ;
  • that although all people have sinned, resulting in the just condemnation of eternal separation from Him, that God has made salvation from this eternal damnation possible through Jesus Christ’s death on the cross and His resurrection from the dead;
  • that our acceptance of His salvation; our repentance from sin; and our faith, love and obedience to Him are vital responses to God’s initiative of grace towards us;
  • that God desires all people to receive this salvation;
  • and that the Holy Spirit’s power is demonstrated in and through us by His enabling us to fulfill His purposes and accomplish Christ’s last commandment,

    “…Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature” (Mark 16:15).
