Courtship for the fatherless generation: how to get on the right track?
You have suffered the consequences of our culture. Maybe, like me, you grew up without even knowing your father, without a proper example of a good, godly marriage, and without being taught anything about God's plan for relationships between men and women. Most likely you already had painful dating experience; maybe you suffered abuse and neglect, or had to face the Peter Pan syndrome of men who 'aren't ready for commitment' at 40. Maybe you even come from an abusive marriage, unsure you will ever be able to rebuild your life. Fear not, and trust in Him. I don't know you, but I know your heart can be renewed, because nothing is impossible to our loving God. [This is one of the best articles we have ever seen on this most important topic. It's appropriate for older teens, but not for very young readers.]

About this section...
Unfortunately, the role of singles today has been relegated to a "pending" status -- something akin to sitting on the back burner. Singles are made to feel that they are either lesser persons than married couples or that they have no viable role in society or the Church. Nothing could be further from the truth! Singles are the "secret weapon" in the Church (or should be), and they have so much to offer to our culture, our home life, and our perspective on the world. Rather than marginalizing singles, we here at LAF believe that families need to encourage them to develop their gifts and use them beautifully and appropriately to bless others. Sadly, there is very little available today for single women (or men, for that matter) that goes beyond either of two categories: waiting to marry and "move on" with life or forgetting about marriage and jumping into a career in order to "find oneself." It is our hope that we will be able to publish many articles to encourage single women of all ages to shine, to serve, and to live purposefully. If you're interested in writing for this category, or if you have run across other helpful articles on the 'net, please contact us through the Feedback Form!

Why men don't court women anymore
It's a man's nature to win the woman's heart. Yes, I believe it still is, and if we act like ladies who need to be courted, we will attract those men who will treat us like princesses and remain our knights when they win our hand in marriage.

But I Want One!
"That's not fair! She has one and I don't! Why is it that she always gets something nice and I never do?!" These reactions sound like quite an unhappy little girl, and we are often taken back by hearing such a ruckus. But do we realize that sometimes we, as young women, say the same thing? Surely not in the same words or with such an emphatic tone of voice, but as I have gotten older, I have heard so many young ladies express these same things: "Am I ever going to get married? Will I be doomed to spinsterhood? All my friends are getting married and here am I, all by myself!"

Dedicated Daughters: What's a daughter to do at home?
Our maiden years are the perfect time to be training for what we believe to be our future calling. If we aspire to be like the woman in Proverbs 31, with all her abilities and strengths, or the wise woman in Proverbs 14, who "builds her home," it only makes sense to dedicate our time as young, unmarried women to pursuing occupations that will shape and enhance our homemaking skills. I know that many of the young women who are reading this don't have fathers who agree with this point of view – that is, if they have a father at all. I am one of those women, in fact. It doesn't mean, however, that there is no hope.

The Desires of Your Heart
Our Holy God will give us our heart's desires and bring our ways to pass, if we but delight, trust in, and commit ourselves to Him! Ah, but what a big "if" that is. Our foolish, sinful, fallen natures so want to have their own way that it is hard for us to even trust our lives to the loving hands of our heavenly Father.

Thoughts on Singleness
"Singleness." Just the word can bring shudders and dread to a person’s heart--especially if she is unmarried.

Being Your Father's Daughter
Just as a bride looks forward to being with her groom and delights to please him, the Bride of Christ (all Christians) should await the coming of Her Groom, which is Christ. While we are single, how can we best prepare ourselves to demonstrate to a skeptical world the beauty of marriage? By turning towards our father, giving him our heart, striving to please him and delighting in his company.

Contemplating Your Wedding
With my pastor’s simple question, I realized then that the idol of marriage was still resident in my heart. Though I wasn't actually bowing before a small statue of a false god or even a wedding cake topper, my greater affections and hopes were reserved for something other than God, and that's what the Bible clearly calls idolatry.

The Call to the High Places
“Lord! Why are all the girls my age falling in love and getting married (or so it feels), and I have no one? How can I survive this painful thing called singleness, especially when so many friends are getting married?” Every girl cries these words at some point; most of us must face them again…and again…and again. How do I best live this unasked-for life of singleness?

Musings on the Will of God
The will of God, and knowing how to follow it, can be a tricky kettle of fish for single young ladies. I have agonized over decisions great and small, wondering how I could truly know what the will of God was for my life. And if something happened to come up, like an opportunity I was presented with last night, it could be even more tempting to wonder if God was leading in an unexpected way.

The treasure chest of friendship, especially for single women.
While in His wisdom God sees it fit for me to be single-–for now or forever--He has given me something instead to focus my love upon. Having no brothers and sisters, loneliness might have lurked around the corner were it not for this great, magnificent gift: friendship.

A Merry Future Homemaker
People often ask me what I am doing now that I am finished with my formal academics. I happily reply, “Training to be the best wife, mother and homemaker I can be.” And what better way to be trained and prepared than to continue practicing those household skills that my mother has so carefully taught me—right here at home?
