Who’s Picking Me Up from the Airport?

airport Another amazing book for all the single ladies to check out! If you remember, I posted about one a few weeks ago, Dating the Wrong Men (you should read both of these books).  This time I have, Who’s Picking Me Up from the Airport? This is another “Hey I can relate to her..” book! Yes, these are the best, I love a good book that I can relate to. It keeps interested and makes me want to read more and not stop. I was able to finish this one in under a week, with you know with four kids, a blog, and a business really means it’s a good book right? Who’s Picking Me Up from the Airport? is about a woman who shared her story about being single, inside includes stories from other women, some really great quotes and some really great bible quotes. A few of the chapters made me cry, more or less, because I’m still in a really relatable state of mind in my single-ness (does that make sense?) It’s always nice to remind yourself that you’re not alone in this adventure called life. God knows your future, he knows the desire of your heart. But don’t  worry, not all of the good Christian guys are taken. Most importantly, you’re not ugly, you’re beautiful. Never forget that! You’re worth it and you deserve the world. I’m 29 year old, yes I just spent the last 9 years of my life in a marriage, sometimes I feel like it’s too late, but it’s never too late. Keep being friendly, happy and never bitter. Waiting for that special someone is totally worth it, your future husband will be glad you waited! The best part of the book was the list of #Ishouldveknownwhen quote1and goes to list items her and her friends made up to describe that exact moment they knew it wasn’t going to last. Haha! I love it! A few were, He shared a bedroom with his sister, he wouldn’t sign up for a trial gym membership, because three month was “too much commitment.” Like seriously, I was rolling at some of these things. I haven’t really dated a lot of people, before I ended up getting married. However since become “single” again, it’s like it’s harder than it was 10 years ago. Then again, 10 years ago, I was just a single mom of 1 and a lot less on my plate. Now I’m a single mom of four and you wouldn’t believe what I have on my plate. I’ve never really been a book reading kind of person, until recently when I became single. I’m on a single woman book related kick lately. Who’s Picking Me Up from the Airport is an amazing book for single woman to read. While she doesn’t have all the answers, it’s nice to be able to relate to someone. More like a, “I know I’m not alone..” kind of book. I love that’s there’s notes before each chapter to say and the quotes. A few of the stories really hit me hard and I cried, because that’s how relatable this book is. I totally recommending this book to all the single ladies or anyone really. If you want more from this author, Cindy Johnson, check out her blog, her pinterest (who doesn’t love em some pinterest), facebook & twitter.

Disclosure: The Family Christian Company sent me a copy of Who’s Picking Me Up from the Airport? book in exchange for a honest review.

  1. Always take your time and get to know each other slowly

    Dating as a single mom is hard! It took me a really long time to even allow my now fiance to meet my daughter, let alone make any kind of commitment to him when I was still so burnt out on men and their, uh… negative sides 😉 The first single mom book I read was called “My Single Mom Life” by Angela Thomas (if I remember correctly, I think she had four babies like yourself) and, like you experienced, it started me on a binge of single parenting books. “Going it Alone” was another great one! Honestly, I know you asked for dating advice above, but my best advice would be not to worry a thing about it. I wish I’d done that and not rushed out on any date that came my way. God will bring that man into your life when you’re ready- cherish the time alone with your precious babies. In my experience, it is the fact that we were alone just the two of us that makes my daughter and I have such an incredible bond. I am so thankful to have my fiance, and now can’t imagine my life without him, but had he come a year or so earlier, I would have never been ready for it and probably totally self-sabotaged the whole thing. They’re murky waters- dating with kids- but you’ll surely get quite a few laughs during the process! xo

    • Oh the advice wasn’t for me, haha.. I don’t plan on dating for awhile.. I just added that book to my Amazon wishlist, I plan on binge buying once tax return money comes in, lol.. Thanks for the suggestion & the advice 🙂

  3. This sounds like a great book to read. I think taking time to find your self is important when becoming newly single whether a parent or not. I love your outlook on this I am sure the journey has been rough.

  4. Ahhhhh this would definitely be a fantastic read for anyone who has recently become single…. Myself… I’m a serial manogoist lol…. I can’t help it though I like to be married ;-);

  5. Sounds like a great book and I think I would have cried myself reading this. From one single mom to another, I love your honest review. I will look up the book and see if I could find it here.

  6. This sounds like it is a great read. I don’t really date now as all of my kids are young and I feel as though it is in their best interest for me to devote what time I do have when not working to them. Being a single mom is lonely at time but with three kids it is always interesting.

  7. This sounds like a great book – very useful and unique take on things for single women. I think it’s so important to seek out books that can have an impact and help with self-discovery.

  8. This seems to be a really good book and what you may need at this point to heal. You were married for a long time and very young so it’s going to be different but different in a good way. Soak up the positivity that the book offers

  9. This sounds lil it would be an amazing book for the right person. For me, not so much. Please don’t take any offense to this. I am just not a religious person in any sense. I don’t pray, i don’t go to church, I don’t know any of the stories from the bible. Haha. However, It really does sound like an amazing book and I am happy you are enjoying it!!! =D

  10. I need this book! I am super single and we are the same age! Wow so a piece of dating advice I can give to single women is its okay to date more than one guy at the same time! Date several because someone is always going to fall off and the cream always rise to the top!

  11. I hope there’s a version of this book especially for single men too. I guess single guys have as much sentiments as single girls too. It;s good to read self help books anchored in the context of the Bible. You wll never surely get wrong with that.

    • You should actually check out Family Christian & Amazon, there’s a HUGE selection for singles on Amazon, I know for sure, I’m not sure about FC.com.

  12. I think that finding a book that I can relate to nowadays is like looking for a needle in a haystack. This books looks like it’s really fun, I specially love the book trailer. I am not a single woman anymore but I think I will be able to understand the main character’s sentiment. I would love to read this book 🙂

  13. Make sure to give family your where about and other information if dating someone new for safety…
