“It will help you to know wholehearted contentment, and see singleness as a true gift. A brilliant book.”
Dr Helen Roseveare
missionary and author

The world tells single women that they most need to find a guy, at least for a night. The church often seems to suggest they most need a husband. Is it really possible to be a single Christian woman and be satisfied?

Andrea Trevenna takes readers to the heart of singleness—to what our hearts need, how they feel, and the ways they can be deceived. She shows that there is a way for singleness not to be at best a quiet regret, and at worst a personal tragedy. She points to the ultimate, and only, place where anyone, single or married, finds true satisfaction—knowing, and enjoying knowing, Christ.

If you are a single woman, whatever your experience of life so far, or if you are a friend of someone who is single, then this short, warm, realistic book is for you.

EQUIP shorts: 'The Heart of Singleness'

Ruth Schroeter, Equip Book Club, May 4th 2015

The Heart of Singleness by Andrea Trevenna speaks sensitively and practically into a topic that can dominate our thought life, swamp our prayer life and hinder our ability to actually live the life God has prepared for us.... continue reading

Unwanted Gift?

Rosie Dunn, Evangelicals Now

It is no smug self-help book, presenting the ideal but unattainable perfect single life. Andrea’s honesty reassures us that she really does understand our situation and she shows us that it’s only when we get our hearts right that we can truly be content.

A great strength of the book is that when you put it down you feel as if you’ve had a chat with the author (over tea and cake or a glass of wine!) – the warm and funny style makes it very readable.... continue reading

“Best book on how to really find love”

(Review written for 'The Heart of Singleness')

Very readable! I have been married for 36 years. This book speaks to me as well as to my Thirtysomething daughter who is single. We all need to know that it is God alone who satisfies our deepest needs - nothing and nobody else can do that. And this book explains it all very clearly. Thank you, Andrea, for writing it.


“Brilliant book”

(Review written for 'The Heart of Singleness')

This is one of my favourite books about singleness and have read it a couple of times. It is practical about the hardships of being single, whilst also celebrating the joys. It focuses on Christ being all we need, and shows that our lives can be fulfilling and glorifying to him, whether we marry or not.
It also contained some amazing bits that made me rethink what I had been thinking about myself for many years. It is a brilliant book and would highly recommend it.


“A great book for anyone struggling with singleness!!”

(Review written for 'The Heart of Singleness')

I read this book when I was really struggling with the idea that singleness is a good gift from God. I found it helpful, real and applicable. What I loved the most about the book was that it helped me to see Jesus as the real deal and not the picture. Marriage is a wonderful gift but so is singleness and Andrea really helped me to embrace that! thank you so much! I recommend this book to every single woman out there.


“FANTASTIC book on contentment for every Christian”

(Review written for 'The Heart of Singleness')

Months later I can still remember things I that learnt from this book. I think the challenge to be contented is applicable to every Christian, this book deals with it in the context of singleness. So important for all Christian women to read to so they can understand & give godly advice and support to their sisters in Christ. I have given away several copies. Best book I have read on singleness. Great to have the testimonies of single women at different life stages.


“My Favorite Book on Singleness”

(Review written for 'The Heart of Singleness')

I am a 27 year-old single woman. I have read many books on singleness and this book is the best I have ever read. This is the book I recommend to all my single women friends who are struggling with being single and desiring marriage. The author speaks Biblical truth about contentment and singleness in a way that is easy to apply to your life. If you have a strong desire to marry, but are still single and struggling with contentment during this season of your life, I highly recommend this book.
