This book, Surviving Singledom, was born out of my experience of singledom. Being single is not a unique experience and yet the single lifestyle in our contemporary society can be fraught with frustration, exclusion and doubt. In the church, many people are marrying at a particularly young age and this can be difficult for Christian singles who find themselves in the minority.

This was my experience.

During my single years I sought information on how to survive perpetual singledom. However, I found that not many people have written about singledom when compared with the available literature on, say, marriage or parenting. I felt as a single person that this ought to change. So I decided to write a book about the myriad of issues facing Christian singles today. It is a compilation of my own and other singles’ experiences; the highs and lows of being single in a society enamoured with romance and marriage.

If you are single, have friends who are single, or minister to single people, this book is for you. May it be a blessing to you.


“Whether it’s social isolation and awkwardness, unhelpful comments from others, dealing with sexual tension, dating, self esteem, healthy relationships, Steph Penny has written about it with sensitivity, honesty, and also humour. I would recommend this little book, not only for those who are single, but for anyone who wants to gain more understanding about human relationships.” – Dr Carol Preston, Psychologist and Author

“I found Steph Penny’s debut book Surviving Singledom refreshingly honest, disarming and easy to read, despite its dealing with weighty and, at times, tricky issues. The author has an engaging, gentle, ‘chatty’ style and her quirky sense of humour also shines through, something I suspect will enable every reader to feel understood and somehow appreciated. An excellent, practical little book that has much to say to any reader, whether married or single, especially about enabling everyone to feel included and also about holding onto our faith and hope in God.” – Jo-Anne Berthelsen, Speaker and Author
