Not Alone: Resources for Catholic Single Women

Here are all the amazing books, and websites I’ve read throughout my life that have seriously made a huge impact on my life as a Catholic woman.  (There are just a handful that I haven’t read, but I felt confident enough to put them on here because of the recommendations I’ve heard about them and the people that wrote them!)

Please, Please, take advantage of all of these resources.  Whether it’s the books or websites, or studies, it is important to grow as a single woman to not only prepare for your vocation, but also for your ultimate Vocation (with a CAPITAL V) to be a servant to the Lord.  Hopefully you find words of wisdom in these resources!

How to Find Your Soulmate Without Losing Your Soul

This is one of the most amazing books I have ever read….especially regarding dating.  They address human brokenness in such a real way and give real and tangible tips for dating.  It is very refreshing.  Jason and Crystalina also have a nice website here. Their Facebook page is here, I would definitely like it if I were you!

  1. Wow, what a great list of resources!! Your list includes a number of books I have not read but will have to check out. I am going to post this to my FB page and will feature it in my 7QTs this week! Great job, Raquel! Cindy

  2. I would appreciate reading about single Catholic women who have discerned a vocation of remaining single. I believe there are many women out there striving to live a chaste life who are not seeking or waiting for Mr. Right at the same time.

  3. LOVE this list, and thanks for the shout out! I definitely need to read Redeeming Love – the prophet Hosea is my favorite prophet and probably my favorite book in all of Scripture! SO good! Thanks for reminding me about it 🙂

  4. Great list, I have read a few of them already or they are in my queue. The only link I am familiar with is made in his image so I will definitely be checking out the others.
