I'm laura — life coach for single women.
I used to believe I had to hate my singleness if I ever wanted to get married. It made sense, somehow, that if I was content being single, there would be no reason for me to have a husband, or need one. In fact, more than anything, I worried that being content meant that […]
I felt it. The twinge. That little spark that shivers through us when joy creeps in. I felt it. And in the very same moment, I pushed it away. You see, life wasn’t as I thought it should be, the way that I planned. What I saw around me was simply what I had, […]
“Will there be any new guys at this party?” “Hopefully there’s a single groomsman in this wedding” “That guy isn’t wearing a ring. Maybe it’s him!” “What if I meet him on this trip?” “New guy at Bible study! Could it be?” Sound familiar? It certainly does to me. At times, these have […]

I just can’t anymore. This just won’t end. My life is emptying out, with nothing to fill it up again. I’m going to be old. And alone. With no friends. And nowhere to go on Friday night for the […]
