"I just viewed this movie at our Church Movie night this evening, and I was moved enough to want to purchase it for several of my friends and for my Sisters Singles Ministries, it addressed several questions I'd been asking God about, regarding marriage and or living single if that wasn't in his plan. I felt God speaking to me as I watched, its a movie all young women and men should see, especially females it was nice to see all the aspects of the living single issue told by women of different ages and professions. I tuly learned a lot and left feeling secure in some decisions I had been wresling with."

"First of all this is not a movie. It's a documentary about single peoples view on being single and those who openly speak about their need to want to get married. It is well put together. I definitely recommend getting this."
Not what I thought!

"I didn't read the fine because I thought this was a movie, but it is a Documentary!

Now, it turns out that it is very intresting because it is not just talking about being single but about success, sex, children, feelings, marriage after 40, children, life, pain by real women some known and unkown in their own words.

Bottom line if you are single and over 30 you may appreciate this documentary and how these women feel and what they are going through as they explain their different journeys."

"I was introduced to the SOULMATE dvd this past Wednesday during bible study. The Pastor showed it to all the single women and men of the church and truly, it was an amazing experience. Even life altering. SOULMATE seeks to peel back the layers of dishonesty that shroud many single Christian women and gives you a peek into their real thoughts and desires for a husband. I found the dvd to be filled with practical solutions and each of the participants who speak, with particular mention of actress/comedian Sherri Shepard, entralled me and taught me things I never knew about myself. There are also very uncomfortable statistics that will open your eyes to the truth of our world and, hopefully, inspire you to act differently and seek God.

HOWEVER, there is one caveat that stops me from giving this dvd a full 5 stars. SOULMATE is geared toward two groups of Christian women: single-no-kids, and married. For those who are single WITH Children, there is precious little to guide you. Single mothers deal with many of the same issues that married women do, except that they do it completely alone, with no help. That isn't addressed. But it should be. Particularly as the statistics given state that 70% of all African-American children are born into single parent households. It would be helpful if they'd acknowledge that with more information, in much the way Feona Huff of Solo Mommy Magazine does. In any case, the dvd is still a must have and perfect to share with your friends who don't realize that, in searching for a husband, they are searching for something seemingly more elusive than the Loch Ness Monster."
