you might be single & homeschooled if...

This one's for the homeschooled girls. The one's who keep their school days short, their best friends close, their sweaters cozy, their novels thick, their daydreams vivid, and their standards high.

The ones who endure the eye-rolls of well meaning family members at the Thanksgiving table, who don't understand the deep purpose in your singleness.

For the ones who don't keep up with pop-culture because you'd rather watch Love Comes Softly or Pride and Prejudice, than whatever new flick Hollywood is cracking out.

You're the girls who adore literature, have a slight obsession with the Duggar family, actually get along with your siblings (gasp!) and have an instant heart connection with anyone who loves Blimey Cow.

You're the girls who are guilty of thinking you're going to find your future husband at every Christian musical festival or concert you attend (hehehe), are amazingly skilled at Disney karaoke, and can quote way too many lines from Dr Who.

The girls who've experienced the loneliness of spending Friday nights at home in your room, and have gotten WAY too attached to fictional characters.

This one's for the girls who believe that God is preparing their future husband, but sometimes you struggle with the wait.

This is for the girls who know they are destined to change the world, but don't have a clue how. Girls, you're are not alone. God is raising up a remnant of chosen, set apart, radically different young women, just like you!

You, my dear, are like a secret weapon in God's army. Don't allow your heart to be discouraged. Embrace your unique lot in life. God has a grand propose in all of it!

If you're willing and surrendered, He WILL use you to establish His Kingdom and change the world. <3
