Support for your journey
What if you're not ready to date or need more time to heal from a relationship?
Here are some activities that has helped me greatly as I navigate through singlehood.
We're living in a broken world and each of us carry pieces of brokenness within us.
It's a little easier when we have a professional to walk us through our experiences (both the happy and sad times).
I have gained clarity on who I am, why I react in certain ways and what is driving that.
There's no shame to counselling. Don't be afraid to take that first step to book a session!
2. Silent Retreats
In our fast pace society, our brains are often filled with “noises” from the world. How often do we quieten down to rest and seek the Lord?
Community for Spiritual Formation offers (i) silent retreats that follows the Christian year and (ii) spaces for personal time of quiet with the Lord.

Reflections from my silent retreat (25 March 2022)
If you're feeling disheartened, anxious, sad, doubtful, lonely, uncertain - I hope this love letter will bring some encouragement to you.

Came for this retreat with a heavy heart, messy mind and unsettled emotions. As I turn my eyes from myself to behold God in His greatness and goodness, the things of earth grew strangely dim. My "big" worries shrunk in the light of His glory and grace.
The Lord spoke gently to me on this day. He patiently address my concerns and reassured me of His love for me and my identity as His child.
I have a confession to make - I spend way more time on social media than on books/articles!
With a shorter attention span, reading seems like the toughest thing ever.
Having started Sacred Companion SG, I "forced" myself to read books and articles relating to singlehood - and I didn't regret it one bit!
Here are some books to get you started!
