What Not to Say to Single Women in the Church by L. Anderson
There were maybe one or two points I don’t see eye to eye on in this, but I agree far more than I disagree with this page.
I really like pages like this page. The author so gets it. But then, it was composed by a 38 year old never married woman. Never married adults past 35 GET IT.
