Book Review: I've Never Been To Vegas but My Luggage Has

There are a lot of "how to survive the single life" books on the market, but Mandy Hale has written one that is not only written from a Christian perspective, but also written from a standpoint that all women despite their religious beliefs can relate to.

I’ve Never Been To Vegas but My Luggage Has is the second book from Mandy who is the creator of The Single Woman blog and the author of the book of the same name. I first became acquainted with Mandy through Twitter and quickly became a follower. What attracted me to her Tweets were the positivity and wisdom they exude. Mandy‘s unabashed honesty and straight shooter style is appreciated in a world where books for single Christians stick to the mantra of “pray and wait for your husband” or “this is the season where you should strictly be focused on the Lord”. They never speak to those that may struggle with wanting what they want in their timing not God’s. Not to knock those books, but Mandy is very frank about the mistakes she’s made with guys: falling for Mr. E, someone who repeatedly broke her heart; living out of wedlock with a physically abusive boyfriend; and struggling with depression and anxiety. I don’t want to give away too much of this wonderful book but if you are a single woman of any age and race please pick up this gem of a book, read Mandy’s blog, , check her out on You Tube, and follow her on social media. For those that need a little encouragement and perspective on this single journey, Mandy will provide it.
