Not Alone Series

The Not Alone Series was created in order to better serve young, single women.
The blogging world is full of moms, but where are the single ladies?
Where are the people like me?
Well, here we are. We all struggle with the same problems, but it's easy to feel isolated in a world obsessed with couples and marriage and babies.

We LOVE couples and marriage and babies, but that's just not where we're at right now. And that's ok.

So while we're all in the same boat, we hope to facilitate community and solidarity among single women. Though most who participate are Catholic Christians, anyone is welcome to join!

Topics are announced  in advance and the link-up is alternated between Jen at Jumping in Puddles and myself. There is no process for joining the NAS, just write a post that is centered around that week's topic, include a link back to the original post in your blog post, and link your post up!

Please email any questions or topic suggestions to me or to Jen.
If you don't have a blog but would like to write a post, let us know!

*Subject to change, please be sure to look at most recent NAS post! We will continue to add dates!

2/17: Spiritual Writings
What are some of your favorite or go-to books, devotionals or even blogs that help encourage you in your spiritual life?

2/24: TRAVEL! 
How do you travel as a single lady?! Any tips or tricks you'd like to share? Do you have anything fun planned for this year?

3/3: Dating Fast
We've all likely heard about them, but have you ever done one? If so, what was your experience? If you haven't, would you consider doing one? Why or why not?

3/10: Encouraging Men
We seem to always have something say about guys treating us right! Or, not right! But, what does that mean? Have you ever thought to share those insights so guys have a better idea on what to say/how to act? Well, let's do it! What are some good habits guys can take up when dealing with us ladies?

3/17: Challenge!
It's that time again! In the past, we've challenged ourselves to grow and/or take steps toward moving closer to our vocation. These challenges have come in all different forms! Trying online dating, getting more involved in our young adult ministry, and working on discipline have all been past personal challenges. What is one thing you want to challenge yourself to do that might help you along on your path toward God's will...or maybe just help you become more open to God's will?
Share what you're planning to challenge yourself with and why, then in 2 weeks we'll write on how this challenge went!!

3/24: Lent
We're about half-way through's it going? What did you decide to give up or take up? Did you make any spiritual goals? How have you grown thus far and how do you hope to make the most of the remainder of this season?

3/31: Expectations vs Reality...of the Single Life
Have you ever had people in your life, who have expectations of what your life is as a single person which are different than the reality of your life? Do friends or family ever make assumptions about your life simply because you're unmarried? Did you ever have expectations about being single which turned out to be different than the reality? How do you manage the expectations of others with the reality of your day-to-day?

4/7: Challenge Check-in
A couple weeks ago, we set to challenge ourselves! What did you decide on and what did you end up doing? Was this a fruitful experience for you? Why or why not?

4/14: Christian Friendship
What does it mean to be a friend based in Christ? Do Christian friends hold each other higher? Do we let certain things go easier? Do we hold each other accountable? How do these friendships differ from non-Christian based friendships? Do the differ? Is one better than the other?

All of the NAS posts I've written can be found here.

This is the post where it all began.

Jen and I were interviewed on CatholicTV's "This Is The Day" in September 2014 about the Not Alone Series. The full interview can be found below!
