Confessions of a Do-It-Yourself Single

This book is an inspirational, comical, and honest look at the dating scene through the eyes of a Christian woman who is trying to live up to God's standards in today's society.

"If you doubt that God has a sense of humour, you haven't read about Kerri's love life yet!" Discouraged with dating books written by authors who married just after puberty and then tried to give relationship advice - "I didn't meet my husband until I was seventeen, and I'm so glad I waited" - Kerri decided to write her book as a single woman in the trenches trying to meet Mr. Right.

Stand-up comedian Kerri Pomarolli shares her side of the Christian dating scene and brings a fresh new light to dating, faith, and being single. In this tell-it-how-it-is book, Kerri offers a glimpse into the mind and heart of a single woman as she shares her personal stories of joy, frustration, pain, and late-night snacks.

IF I'M WAITING ON GOD, THEN WHAT AM I DOING IN A CHRISTIAN CHAT ROOM? is the humorous and moving story of one woman's search for real faith and true love.

"This book is hilarious. It's perfect for the God-fearing gal who's looking for love in all the wrong places. I found myself uplifted, knowing I wasn't alone." - Christia Mantzke, recording artist.

"Finally! We men get a glimpse of what is really going on in the minds of Christian single women! I couldn't put it down!" - Jay Pesek, Nashville Speakers Bureau.
