Not Yet Married: The Pursuit of Joy in Singleness and Dating

About the Book

Life Is Never Mainly about Love and Marriage. So Learn to Live and Date for More.

Many of you grew up assuming that marriage would meet all of your needs and unlock God’s purposes for you. But God has far more planned for you than your future marriage.

In Not Yet Married: The Pursuit of Joy in Singleness and Dating, author Marshall Segal won't call you to wait quietly in the corner of the world for God to bring you “the one,” but instead sets out to inspire you to live and date for more now.

If you follow Jesus, the search for a spouse is no longer a pursuit of the perfect person, but a pursuit of more of God. He will likely write a love story for you different than the one you would write for yourself, but that’s because he loves you and knows how to write a better story—helping you find real hope, happiness, and purpose in your not-yet-married life.
