The probable reason you don’t know this interesting fact about these famous Christian women is because it didn’t hurt their Christian testimony, hold them back, restrain their happiness, or dampen people’s respect of them (though we tell ourselves these lies quite often, don’t we?).
GODLY EXAMPLES TO FOLLOW:
Lottie Moon, Missionary to China before being a single missionary to China was cool
Amy Carmichael, Brown-eyed “momma” to Indian children
Nancy Leigh DeMoss, Modern, bestselling Christian author, speaker and radio host (single into her late 50’s)
OTHER EXAMPLES OF INTEREST:
Jane Austen, Seriously, do I even need to explain who this lady is to a single girl?!
Louisa May Alcott, Author of Little Women, and self-described to be inevitably single - "because I have fallen in love with so many pretty girls and never once the least bit with any man."
Florence Nightingale, Renowned nurse whose birthday was chosen to officially be International Nurses Day
There are many other names that can be listed, for sure, and even more of whom haven’t made it to Wikipedia status but their godly, unsung influence will pass the test of time. I hope this list encourages you that your singleness isn’t as weird as you think, isn’t holding you back, and won’t damper your ministry for the Lord – in fact, it could spearhead it.
Don’t forget you promised to look up one of the three single, Christian women ;)
