Finding a spouse has never been easy. But, it’s also never been quite so hard, especially for good Catholic girls intent on having strong Catholic marriages to nice Catholic boys.

So what are all those good Catholic girls to do? How do they navigate the increasingly long (and usually trying) years between college and “I do” without losing their sanity or their soul?

Consult The Catholic Girl’s Survival Guide for the Single Years: The Nuts and Bolts of Staying Sane and Happy While Waiting for Mr. Right.

Steeped in the Church’s teachings on the feminine genius, marriage, and theology of the body, The Catholic Girl’s Survival Guide dishes with both wit and wisdom on some of the most pressing questions single women face: vocation, dating, sex, finances, work, depression, and more.

As hopeful and honest as it is fun and faithful, The Catholic Girl’s Survival Guide for the Single Years is the perfect companion for women whose journey to “I do” is turning out to be a longer one than they (or their mothers) would have liked.

About the Author:

Emily Stimpson is a freelance Catholic writer based in Steubenville, Ohio, and the author of The Catholic Girl’s Survival Guide for the Single Years (Emmaus Road, 2012).
As a contributing editor to Our Sunday Visitor Newsweekly and a columnist for Lay Witness, Emily writes regularly on “all things Catholic”—from politics and catechesis to higher education and the media, with a special focus on the Church’s teachings on marriage, sexuality, and femininity. Over the years her writing has also appeared in First Things, Touchstone, Franciscan Way, the National Catholic Register, Faith and Family, and elsewhere. It has been honored by both the Catholic Press Association and the Associated Church Press, and was included in Loyola’s Best Catholic Writing series.
Emily holds a BA from Miami University of Ohio (Phi Beta Kappa, summa cum laud), where she studied political science, history, and English literature. She also did graduate work in political science at John Hopkins University and theology at Franciscan University. Before moving to Steubenville, Emily worked in Washington, DC, first as a Legislative Assistant to then Congressman Jim Talent (R-MO), then later at The Heritage Foundation, where she served as Special Assistant to former Attorney General Edwin Meese III.

Review:

"Emily Stimpson has written a book that manages to be light-hearted about the serious subject of singleness for Catholic women, but is still full of practical, nitty-gritty suggestions for growing through difficulties. Always uplifting, "The Catholic Girls Survival Guide for the Single Years," offers timeless truths that help women see beyond current circumstances to grasp the bigger picture of life as a beloved daughter of God. I highly recommend this book for anyone who is a single Catholic woman or anyone who wants to learn how to love single women better. I don t know of another book that does what this book does for single women it s simply outstanding! Kimberly Hahn, Author "Life-Giving Love"

"Wow. This is a good book. A really good book. That very rare kind of singles' book that strikes the perfect balance between honesty and optimism. The kind of book I wish I'd written myself. The book you should read if you're single, female and . . . well, breathing." MaryBeth Bonacci, Author "Real Love"

"The Catholic Girl s Survival Guide for the Single Years is a delightful, easy read, full of insight and advice from someone who speaks from experience. Stimpson s advice is practical, relevant and encouraging; her writing style humorous and down to earth; her scope broad, covering major questions with which single women wrestle. A thoroughly enjoyable, refreshing guide for living a sane and spirited single life, women will find themselves returning to it for a needed boost of inspiration or consolation. For women whose current singleness was not part of the plan , this book is a must read!" Anastasia Northrop, Founder and Director, National Catholic Singles Conference

"I am secure enough in my masculinity to admit publicly that I LOVE this book. Emily Stimpson covers a serious subject, an important subject, but she does it in a way that's never dour or dire or desperate. In fact, she made this married guy laugh out loud over and over again. I have five daughters, and they'll all be better off for befriending this book. As for me: Miss Stimpson has helped me to appreciate all the fussing that goes on in my (estrogen-powered) home over babies and puppies and cashmere sweaters." Mike Aquilina, Author, "Love in the Little Things" --Endorsement
