Resources on Singleness when it comes to Dating/Relationships/Marriage/Sex

Updated: Mar 20, 2021

To help with the journey of singleness, I decided to compile a blog post for just resources when it comes to dating, relationships, sex, marriage etc, so if anyone was looking for further information/resources - this would provide that. This was inspired by the #30DayHusbandFast a Fast on praying intentionally on the subject of - you guessed it, a Husband whilst single.


Now this list isn't exhaustive and is constantly being updated based on...You! So if you do have any suggestions, feel free to add to the comments section or drop me an email at chatswithlou@hotmail.com and I can update ;-).


Books

  • The Sacred Search by Gary Thomas- In The Sacred Search, Gary Thomas will transform the way you look at romantic relationships. Whether you are single, dating, or engaged, Gary's unique perspective on dating will prepare you for a satisfying, spiritually enriching marriage even be fore you walk down the aisle. As Gary reminds us, a good marriage is not something you find - it's something you make.

  • Relationship Goals by Michael Todd - A candid, inspiring guide to finding lasting love and sustaining a healthy relationship by getting real about your goals—based on the viral, multi-million-view sermon series about dating, marriage, and sex.

  • The Dating Manifesto by Lisa Anderson - Finally, a no-holds-barred word on dating, preparing for marriage and maximizing singleness from someone who's actually living it...The Dating Manifesto is neither a cheesy formula for finding a spouse nor a feel-good book about how the person for you is "out there" if you only "believe."Instead, it's a challenge to wise up, own your junk, and chart a bold new course for your relationship future.

Devotionals

  • Waiting on God by Dr Charles F Stanley – 7 Day Youversion devotional, which offers a really good biblical teaching on what waiting on God looks like, and the dynamics of this. It completely helped my perspective on this teaching.

  • Singleness: A Guide For Women - 7 Day devotional I recommended at the beginning of the Fast, and it's a good refresher at the end too.

  • The Dating Manifesto by Lisa Anderson - 7 Day Youversion devotional based on the book by the same name, loved the funny but direct approach.

  • Sex, Purity and the Longings of a Girl’s Heart – 7 Day devotional which is focused on us as women and our general journey in singleness and dealing with sexual purity. Such a biblically based devotional that really helps you explore sex, God's creation and what he envisions.



Podcasts

  • Boundless by Lisa Anderson - Lisa also has a podcast called 'Boundless' where '...She loves connecting with single young adults and strategizing how to better equip them for life, relationships and a faith that goes the distance.'

  • The Idolatry of Marriage - Episode from Thirty Minutes with The Perry's - Jackie Hill Perry and her Husband Preston Perry's are Speakers within the Christian Sphere. Jackie Hill Perry is famous for writing the book 'Gay Girl, Good God' where she talks about her history from being a lesbian to getting married to a Man. She often speaks on issues of sexuality, relationships, marriage and more alongside her Husband


Youtube Series

  • Relationship Goals by Michael Todd - A candid, inspiring guide to finding lasting love and sustaining a healthy relationship by getting real about your goals—based on the viral, multi-million-view sermon series about dating, marriage, and sex.
