Single Today

Conquer Yesterday's Regrets, Ditch Tomorrow's Worries, and Thrive Right Where You Are

Ryan Wekenman

About Single Today

An empowering guide to the gift of singleness that will help you leave shame in the past and let go of anxiety about the future in order to thrive today—from a thirtysomething single pastor who understands that the struggle is real.

Ryan Wekenman has been an unmarried pastor for over a decade. He's heard all the usual questions: "Are you dating anyone? Any wedding plans in the future?" But he knows the real question they're asking is, "Hey, do you think you'll be single for the rest of your life?"

Ryan believes that singleness isn’t a curse to endure. Rather, it’s a gift to enjoy, even if at times it can be hard to see it that way. But he has discovered firsthand—and from hundreds of meetings with other single people—that we are often consumed by regrets or shame from the past, together with worry or fear of the future, making it feel impossible to find peace in the present.

But it doesn't have to be that way. Single Today shares Ryan's perceptive anecdotes, thought-provoking questions, biblical insight, and disarming humor as he invites you into his journey of learning to fully embrace his current reality.

Single Today will encourage you to
  • gain practical tools to help handle the annoying and uncomfortable situations single people get placed in 
  • learn how to talk to family and friends about your singleness with confidence
  • practice opening your heart and embracing true intimacy
  • stop believing your marital status is keeping you stuck
  • start living the full and abundant life available today

No amount of shame will change the past, and no amount of worry will fix the future, but with a little faith and work, you can thrive while being single today.
