Journey to 30 is a book written by a brave young lady, Tatianah Green, who has been growing leaps and bounds. Instead of holding to the negative stereotypes that plague women as we approach the age of thirty; She has chosen to shift perspectives from worldly expectations that only lead to frustration to God’s expectations that lead to security in Christ and fulfillment in God’s timing, purpose, and plan for our lives.
The book covers some of her personal journey up to the age of 30, and it also includes the interviews of 10 women in the book with one of the interviews including myself. My section discusses our relationship with God, which is the foundation of who we are. I even share a story in the book about how thoughtful God is of us.
One day when I was going through in my mind and emotions wondering and asking God if I was doing something wrong because of the pain and trials I was experiencing as a single woman; my mentor called me right in the middle of the questioning, and without me mentioning what was going on she said to me, “ no, you are not doing anything wrong.” She encouraged me to stand firm in what God had given me even though things did not manifest for me yet.
Standing firm, bold, and unapologetically is just what the book encourages single women to do. It encourages us not to be swayed by our personal clocks and timelines, but to trust in the Lord. It shares advice and testimony of women who have been sexually active, and decided to obey God and begin waiting, and what that looks like.
