Prolonged Singleness with Julieanne Bartlett
Our special guest this week is Julieanne Bartlett, founder of Passion of Hope ministries. Julieanne felt called to marriage and prayed to find a husband. However, she remained single until she was 42 when God finally led her to her husband.
Julieanne talks about the trial of what she calls “prolonged singleness.” She discusses the challenge of living your life when you feel like God is not answering your prayer. She shares some of the ways she coped with waiting for her vocation. She also shares the important things she has learned about the goodness of God and the importance of marriage.
You may be struggling to find the person God wants you to marry. Perhaps you are waiting for a baby. Maybe you are struggling to find out God’s will in your work situation. Whatever your situation, Julieanne’s story of struggle and faith will encourage and inspire you. Download Julieanne’s free ebook on prolonged singleness here.
