23: Wife-Minded Singleness

Show Notes

“You want to determine not by pressuring a man or casting him to the novel that you’ve already written out, or even by over interrogating him, but through getting to know him over time.” – Joyice

“When it comes to a man assessing the women he’s dating for marriage, you want to be his vision, not his reason.” – Joyice


What is Wife-Minded Singleness, and how can it help you on your dating journey?  If you are enjoying your single season right now, but have marriage on your radar, this episode has your name on it!

I narrate some real-life examples for you straight from the trenches of dating and relationships. From ex encounters to heated arguments, these stories shed light on how certain behaviors can either build or break a budding connection.

These stories are not to rain on your parade. Rather, to offer guidance on how to navigate the dating landscape with grace and intentionality. It is necessary to learn how to strike a balance between your own authenticity while also keeping an eye on the prize.

As you continue on your journey through womanhood, remember that you are not just a single woman; you are a woman with the power to shape your own destiny AND someone’s future wife. Let’s discuss ways to embrace your singleness without remaining stuck in it.

I invite you to drop your truth for a chance to have your story inspire the next Secret Story episode! Looking to book a one-on-one call with me for a discounted rate?
