I am so excited to share with you so many amazing young women who are joining with me on this Book + Blog Tour! Stay tuned each day for their stories, testimonies and reviews of my brand new book Savoring Single! Now Available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
“You will have the capacity to trust God to the level you honor His Word in your life. It’s not a magical, wand-waving, fairy tale romance. It’s faith. And what is faith if it doesn’t require you to actually believe in Him? Faith is not a fast-pass to answered prayer, it’s standing in line with Him and then not getting on the ride unless He does too.”
“Shelley is completely honest and authentic with her struggle and it is such a beautiful thing. If you are struggling in your season of singleness, I highly recommend this book. If you aren’t, I still highly recommend this book. Whatever season you are in right now, you will learn so much from Shelley.”

Review from Heidi at The Caffeinated Bibliophile!
“Happy Valentine’s Day! Today is a day where there are many mixed emotions due to love and singleness. But today, I’m excited to chat with Shelley Black, the author of Savoring Single, as part of her blog tour on her new book and her advice for those of us who are single today.”
“This Valentines Day, as a single, really take the time to lean into God as well as the other singles in your life. Take the time to look at what you may be using to complete you. This takes all forms and can even be what’s good but has turned into something far more important then it should.”
“My recommendation for who reads this book is that every middle school girl and older should read this. And anyone who desires a closer relationship with God should read it.” Read the rest of Phyllis’ review and my testimony here.
“My heart is so full after listening to such raw, real encouragement from the heart of one single to other single girls. My struggles with singleness started to dissolve that night. Shelley’s joy was contagious and unmistakable.
My soul was also thankful for the reminder–especially so close to Valentine’s–that He hasn’t designed to be something to be lonely but fulfilling and beautiful. 💗💗💗 I left challenged and compelled to live this season with rejoicing and purpose.”
“I love how Shelley puts a lot of importance on developing a relationship with God, as God can fill the empty places in your heart, and even prepare you to love who God has called you to be.” Read the Q+A here.
“What happens when you feel stuck in the insecurity and loneliness that comes with living a single life? What do you do when rejection gets in the way of truly giving yourself to God? In her book, Savoring Single, Shelley Black points toward biblical truths that pull you out of discouragement and propel you into living a prosperous life for Christ.” Click here to read more.
“…if you are content in your identity in Christ, comparison won’t take a grip on your heart and you won’t feel belittled at someone else’s success, strengths or beauty. What a better way to live!” Click here to read more.
“…Shelley doesn’t just leave readers with the knowledge of why singleness is a good thing and why it is important. She provides you with advice on how to savor your single years and how to make them count.” Click here to read her full review.
Read Isabella’s review on Amazon.
“I’m not alone. He’s with me and will never leave.
I’m not rejected. He’s chosen me and pursued me, even in my mess.
I’m not last pick. I’m His first pick.” Read the full article here.
“The word just gave me the heebie jeebies! Webster defines singleness as the quality or state of being single. However, I defined singleness as the quality or state of being ashamed or being a failure. In my mind, the only thing worse than having to claim singleness was being so close to throwing out that identity forever and then having to go put it back on again.” Keep reading here.
“When I realized that my singleness had a specific calling within it, my whole outlook changed! … Be a lady in living not a lady in waiting” – Jessica
“But God doesn’t just forsake us in our season of waiting, He draws us close, wipes away our tears, comforts us when we are hurting. He is all we ever need & only when we are fully & completely satisfied in Him, can we ever be content in a human relationship. When your heart is not filled with Christ, it will desperately grab at anything & everything to satisfy it.” Read more from Abby here.
