TSL: A Christian Single Woman’s Manifesto

A few months ago I was at the local library, and I was browsing through a women’s interest section when I stumbled upon a book called The Single Girl’s Manifesta. While the book is not one I recommend, I did find it somewhat inspiring because she talks about embracing your singleness wholeheartedly and choosing to live abundantly (her word was exquisitely) as a single woman.

One of the things that I loved about the book is that it is a manifesto, a declaration of how she wants to live as a single. While I personally don’t agree with how she wants to live as a single, I loved the idea of writing out my own declaration of how I want to live as a single so here is my manifesto:

The BarnPrincess’ Single Manifesto


Have you ever considered writing your own manifesto? What would you include?

Want to write your own manifesto but don’t know how?

Here are 5 steps to writing your own manifesto from The Huffington Post:

  1. Be inspired.
  2. Make notes.
  3. Write a rough draft.
  4. Put it away and then proofread.
  5. Live it.

Now get busy and write your own.


(BTW: I don’t recommend the book because she talks about and encourages sex outside of marriage. I don’t, but that is a discussion for another post. I also don’t like how she defines single. She says that singleness is a state of mind and that you can be part of a couple and still be single.)

  1. I was going to ask why you don’t recommend the book. You answered. I don’t have a manifesto. I just live my life to the fullest.

    1. Yvonne, you do have a manifesto. It is just an unspoken one…Live life to the fullest.

  2. I’d like to really think about my manifesto. 🙂
    Meanwhile, here’s me linking again. Thanks! This is fun!

    1. Lux, it doesn’t have to be complicated. It is based on who you are, what you believe in, and how you want to live. It can be something as simple as “Live life to the fullest” or more complicated like the one I wrote.
