Successful, good-looking and... still single. With down-to-earth honesty and transparency, television news anchor Ali Smith chronicles her journey of learning to hear, trust and wait on God for Mr. Right. With several short-lived relationships in the USA and in Asia, she candidly shares excerpts from her own private journals, along with faith lessons and encounters with God that came to her in gentle whispers during her 'season of singleness.' Entrusting the Key is a delightful and humorous blend of storytelling and deep Biblical insights. Find out how surrendering the key to the door of her heart brought her to new levels of trusting that the One who loves her unconditionally will provide for all her needs. She shares a fresh new perspective on how to find joy and fulfillment during periods of waiting, in chapters such as: - Be Content, Not Confined - Lonely but Not Alone - Refusing the Pressure Cooker and many more. As you see the intricate workings of a personal, intimate and interactive God in Ali's life, this book will surely leave you feeling inspired, encouraged and comforted wherever you are at in your journey.

Review:

"As I read...I couldn't help thinking how much I hope my own daughters are surrounded by women like Ali Smith, who combine a great joy of life with a desire to hear the voice of our God. I admire Ali's desire to please God as well as acknowledging the complexity of growing into maturity with all its' conflicting demands. I encourage you to walk alongside Ali, and see the power of God working through her life." --The Rev. John Crosby, Board Member, World Vision, Head Pastor, Christ Presbyterian Church of Edina, Minnesota USA

"Ali Smith takes readers on her delightful journey to find the love of her life. That journey hasn't finished yet, but Ali discovers along the way that life's greatest "romance" is a vital, daily relationship with the Lord. Considering that choice of spouse is life's most important decision after a personal commitment to Christ, Ali's book is a must-read for anyone seeking God's direction in finding a life mate." --John Maust, President, Media Associates International, USA

"God gives each of His children opportunities to trust Him in life situations they encounter. With humor and honest, Ali Smith recounts the ups and downs of her journey as a single woman while learning more about God's love and care for her. While the experiences recounted in this book are uniquely Ali's, the deep longings of her heart are universal. As I have spent time with single women on four continents, I have observed that God often uses matters of the heart to sift and reveal the true level of one's relationship with God and calls young women like Ali to trust Him - even when it is not easy." --Jeannette Shubert, Ph.D, Lecturer, East Asia School of Theology, Singapore
