Endorsements: "It may be that this does not paint the whole picture of your single life, but guaranteed there will be plenty of shared experience, hurts, accidents and adventures within these pages. With refreshing honesty, courage and humour Carrie publicly has the conversation so many of us have had in private. Her passion for Christ is a constant theme throughout this engaging, challenging and inspiring read." - Katharine Welby-Roberts A21 Ambassador, blogger, speaker. "It's tough being a single Christian girl in a world full of feelings and emotions and expectations and hopes and dreams and aspirations. Like a best friend spilling her deepest thoughts onto the page - some heartbreaking and some hilarious - Carrie takes us on a journey past shame and heartache and faux pas to healing and freedom and truth. This book will be a companion to any sassy young woman wanting to make sense of who she is in the midst of all of life's stuff." - Chine Mbubaegbu, head of media & communications Evangelical Alliance; author of Am I Beautiful? (Authentic) "The Virgin Monologues opens up much-needed space for dialogue in the Christian community about the way we communicate to women and girls about sex. Carrie's sincerity and openness about her personal experiences offer a relatable alternative to the dysfunction of the corporate media's version of today's sexual narrative and the too often shaming response from the religious communities. The Virgin Monologues should be a staple in every spiritual library." - Ben Decker, Marketing & PR Consultant, Social Activist, Human Rights Advocate "I love this book. It is honest, funny, challenging and inspiring. Just like its author. Carrie is not afraid to say it as she sees it, and whether you agree with her or not, what comes across more than anything else is her infectious passion for Jesus and her longing for others to encounter him and be changed." - Bill Cahusac, 24-7 Prayer GB Leadership Team "If, like me, you're dissatisfied with the rubbish about love, life and relationships that you sometimes inhale, here's your chance to breathe in beautiful and wild words of wisdom that lead to Life. Carrie has captured the art of celebrating who she is while still believing the best is yet to come. It makes for a captivating read and an even more infectious life!" - Rachel Gardner, Founder, Romance Academy "The Virgin Monologues is a wonderfully courageous ride through love and life. I found Carrie's honest communication about what it's like to navigate the joyous and sometimes perilous journey though relationships refreshing. In her book Carrie has invited us to not only do better in relationships but to be a better people. I know this book may seem, on the surface, to be geared towards women. However, men will find it fascinating and challenging and will probably be better men for reading it. A must read!" - Gabe Valenzuela, 2nd Year Overseer, Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry" In this book Carrie reminds us that what is most important is actually understanding and living out of a place of knowing who we are in Christ, and how that needs...

The Virgin Monologues: Confessions of a Christian Girl in a Twenty-First Century World Reviews
I started reading this book because a friend tagged me on a video on FB. I loved it! It is funny, refreshing and honest. I love that the author has her own life and experiences as a testimony, so the whole book becomes real. You can tell that she has a real relationship with God, so her words become an encouragement for you.If you are single, dating, engaged, going through a breakup, or have lost hope on guys... this is a MUST READ!
A good book for any young christian woman :) Lots of moments to make you smile, giggle, get a bit teary and think about men and God.
The Virgin Monologues helped me through a pretty rough season. Confusing too, if I might add. It helped me to understand the complexities of getting into the right relationship that God has planned for you and the travesties prior to coming out of a broken relationship and one that was not ordained for you.It helped me to discern between, as Carrie calls them, the 'Creepy Crawlies', 'The Mediocre', 'The Jerks', 'Mr.Potential' and finally, 'God's Finest'. She also helped me to be at peace with the fact that not all men are great but then again, women are not that amazing either for the simple reason that we are all still a work in progress. She taught me the art of letting go, forgiveness, healing through the journey of heartbreak, sexual purity, the pursuit of men and so much more. I foresee that I will keep coming back to this book for clarity and wisdom, after seeking God and His Word, of course. Also, I feel like I need to stress that if you're not a Christian but you're going through a journey of dealing with heartbreak (whether it be over a boy, a girl, a loved one), then this book is for you. After every chapter, I really had to close the book, mull over what I've just learned, make sure I apply it and let it cross stitch over my heart. These lessons are not just for girls but for boys, as well. How to seek for a man who will honour and respect you as the woman you were always destined to be and how to be the woman that men will learn to honour and respect. If I had to pick just one lesson out of The Virgin Monologues, it would be this; Singledom is not failure, its not finality, it is a season. Embrace it, enjoy it. You may only have this time, for you never know what is coming around the corner. A relationship does not define your worth, God does.
