Unsuitable with MaryB. Safrit
The podcast where I interview single Christians about their lives and faith.
Have you ever felt unsuitable? It’s that feeling you get when you walk into a room and wonder, Wait… do I fit here? I’ve been derping around the church my whole life, and since “coming of age,” I’ve felt it more and more as I’ve remained single. I’m not sad about being single, though I experience loneliness like any other human. I love being able to pursue my creative work wherever it might take me.
Upon moving to the city, I started having conversations with people like me. I started hearing my own stories and struggles in theirs. Though we were different in many ways, those stories helped me see that I’m not alone.
And so I turned those conversations into a podcast. Thinking about how life-giving it was to hear the stories of people whose lives were empty and full in similar ways to mine, I wanted to share that with others. I wanted to create something for us and by us.
To rewrite the inaccurate stories we tell ourselves—the ones that say we’re unsuitable—is to first hear that someone else has already done it. That it can be done. And then the story becomes, I can do it, too.
Welcome, fellow single Christian. This was made for you. Pull up a chair and join the conversation.
