Dear Ms. Nelson,
Do you know what it means to be a kigatsuku person? Are you currently in a “hurricane” or a “bridge” relationship? Do you know what it takes to be “righteous in the dark?” When you were single did you struggle to find your place in the world? Did you feel like a misfit or a menace—like a circle trying to fit into a square? Did you struggle with how to navigate your single life? Well, if you did you are not alone!
Single, So What? is a 53,713-word book about how to be single and happy. It is filled with principles that are catered, but not limited, to single adults who are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It used to be an anomaly to be 21+ and single in the LDS culture but now there are entire stakes filled with single adults.
This book is a collection of principles, blog entries, stories, conversations had on couches, floors, kitchen tables, and at many different single adult gatherings. It is filled with practical ways to build the kingdom, make needed changes, find hope, increase faith, and strengthen relationships. Almost everyone has someone in their life that is single so this book will make an excellent gift!
My name is Kylee Shields and I am a 31 year old single adult LDS female. I am currently trying to figure out how to be in a family ward and stay connected to the “single scene.” I am an avid blogger and recently created a fan page on Facebook for Single, So What? that has received 135 “likes’’ so far.
Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you. I have enclosed a SASE for your reply.
Please, please, give me your feedback, your changes, your input, and so forth. This is my draft that needs some work.....
