Turning our culture's Sex in the City world view completely upside down,
Revelations of a Single Woman celebrates God's enticing, life-giving
promises, even when life takes you down a path you didn't plan for.
Connally Gilliam explores what it means to live in a world for which her
mother never could have prepared her. Through this collection of thoughtful,
honest, and humorous memoirs, the author delves into what it really
means to be "the remainder" in a world that caters to couples, and what it
means to be the one who lives out moral values that her peers think died in
the sixties. As readers walk with Connally through each humorous and
poignant experience, they will discover that God doesn't promise
happiness somewhere in the future, but abundant life in the here and now.
From the Back Cover
A little bit debutante and a little bit granola chick; a little bit pump and a little
bit Birkenstock—that’s Connally Gilliam: a confident, bright, and
unintentionally single woman. On these pages, you’ll find her candid
struggles to make sense of our many fragmented selves, the expectations
we’ve met and failed, and the feeling that sometimes we’re “the remainder”
in a couples’ world.
Through Connally’s poignant and often humorous experiences, you’ll get a
taste of the abundance that God promises, even when life takes us down a
path we didn’t plan for.
"Created for God's Pleasure" is for all women in general and single
Christian women in particular. The message of the book is that the single
Christian woman has a prominent place in God's plan for His Church and
Kingdom. The centre of the book portrays a living reflection of the hearts of
twelve single women from a multiplicity of progressions, faithful in their
service to God, but are on their own and does not wish to be. They have
never been married and would like to be. Many of these women have
accepted this role with grace; however many others appear to have taken
up a lamentation of what they see as unacceptable plight, albeit ordained
by a loving God and Father. From their testimonies we find sadness,
disappointment, resignation, hope deferred and somewhere in the midst of
it all, some acceptance of what might inevitably be "God's will" for their
lives. Having created us God reserves the right to keep us to Himself by not
giving us away in marriage, so that we can serve Him with individual
devotion and without distractions.

It was so awesome just to read that someone else feels like me. It covers
the ups & downs of single Christian life - telling it all without wallowing in
the complexities. The bottom line - you may not get married & that's ok. It's
the world who confuses you with it's messages. Keeping your eyes on
God's purpose for you is the key. The church needs to be understanding
single life & teaching & listening to what we have to say. I've already
recommended this to a pastor & it's doing the rounds of my friends (who
can't read it fast enough!). Thanks Lori for finally telling it like it is.

If I could, I would give this book ten stars instead of five. This book really tells it
like it is. Out in the world you hear society talk about "safe sex" and "sex
outside of marriage is no big deal." But this book tells the real truth. It tells the
blessings you will receive in your life and how God will reward you if you obey
His rule about sex and stay sexually pure until you are married. I truly take my
hat off to the authors of this book.
