"Why are you single?"
However we answer that question, what's more important than why we are single is how we live as singles. Regardless of our relationship status, all of us are called to a life of vital discipleship. And walking with God can reshape singleness into a pilgrimage of transformation.
Pilgrim and podcaster Bridget Gee shares her singular journey of vibrant life in the kingdom of God. Her travels have become a personal pilgrimage of walking with God and others, experiencing spiritual formation in the ups and downs of literal mountains and valleys. She explores her longings and hopes in vulnerable narratives, navigating issues of identity, community, mental health, dating, sexuality, and more.
Gee invites us into a purposeful story of following Jesus in life not as we think it might be, but as it really is. The pilgrim journey takes us places we did not expect to become people we did not know we could be.
"Bridget Gee approaches this crucial topic with her disarming honesty, wise biblical insights, and one-of-a-kind humor. I have been married for thirty years, but her book helped me want to have a more tender relationship with God, so I guess this is for everyone! Read this book, and you just might learn to be a better friend and how to get closer to God."
-Doug Schaupp, national director of evangelism with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA and coauthor with Don Everts and Val Gordon of Breaking the Huddle
"Approachable and winsome, Bridget's story is a welcome reminder that—contrary to popular belief—singleness is not a disease in need of remedy. My own journey has been vastly different from Bridget's in many ways, yet the core truth of our experience remains so much the same: no matter how we arrive at singleness or why we stay here, the same God is ready to meet us in our holy aloneness and take great delight in us."
-Gregory Coles, author of Single, Gay, Christian and No Longer Strangers
