Divorced not Damaged

Divorced NOT Damaged For singles who have been divorced, it can feel like you always have a scarlet “D” on your chest for “Divorced.” The Christian community can often be the worst offenders of this, labeling you as “Damaged” but redeemed. Divorce was not God’s plan for any marriage, but it happens. Jesus even addresses it in Matthew 19:1-9, saying it was because of mans hardness of hearts that divorce even happens. This blog is

Single Adult POV Two Years into COVID

“I tried going back to an in-person church, but I didn’t want to take the seat of a family who may need it.” “My job moved fully remote, I live alone, and in two years, I have only been out to social events a handful of times.” “I struggle with being alone.

5 Things Married People Dont Get About Singles

1.   How singles date now. Dating for singles now is the same as it has always been, but completely different. Confused? Singles now interact with technology in every part of the dating experience.

It’s Just Me This Christmas

Regardless whether a person is completely content with being single or not, the holidays for older single adults reveal a somber truth.

Single adults who were once married cannot be lumped into one big “Single-again” category.  Many widows/ers do not think
