Hi. I'm Adriane. I'm a farm wife, but before I met my husband, I was also the author of Hello, My Name Is Single.

It's a witty book that challenges and encourages single men and women to live secure in Christ, whether they're searching for Mr. or Mrs. Right or completely content living the single life. 

According to my publishing house, "Author Adriane Dorr Heins treats her readers to a delightful conversation of practical and personal issues many singles face. She offers a historical, biblical approach that reminds readers that their identities are found in Christ, not in relationship statuses on Facebook." 

That makes me happy to hear!

What are others saying?

"Honest. Frank. Witty. Necessary. This book is a high-octane treatment of a long-neglected topic."
-Rev. Marcus Zill, LCMS Coordinator for Campus Ministry

"I don't care who you are: Read this book." -Rev. David Petersen, Redeemer Lutheran Church, Fort Wayne, Ind.

"I love this little book. From the first sentence, Adriane surveys the issue of living as a single adult more honestly than any other book on the subject, but with a sensitivity that breathes hope."
-Rev. Dr. Matthew C. Harrison, president, The Lutheran Church--Missouri Synod

"Hello, My Name Is Single is witty, engaging and, above all, completely honest. . . . . Heins dismantles the mythical trinity of independence, self-sufficiency and self-reliance. At the same time, she treats singleness as a station in life, a godly vocation that may or may not be permanent."—Rev. Todd Wilken, Host of Issues, Etc.

"Her book will prove to be a lifeline to single Christians."
-Dr. Gene Edward Veith, author of Spirituality of the Cross (CPH 2010)
"A great book for singles—and everybody else! With wry humor (and not a few trademark parenthetical comments), Adriane Heins takes on a topic that is usually politely ignored or cheapened with trite words that are often more hurtful than true. None of that here! Backed by research, experience and a keen eye for culture, she deftly chides, counsels and encourages both singles and those around them, always anchoring the discussion and the hope of all in their identity as those redeemed by Christ."
—Rev. Tim Pauls, Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, Boise, Idaho; You Ask About…Relationships (2007), Going Out, Getting Dumped and Playing Mini-Golf on the First Date 

"Unflinchingly honest and surprisingly hilarious, Hello, My Name Is Single is a helpful and encouraging book-not just for people who are single but for their friends and family as well. . . . Adriane Heins writes with vulnerability, intelligence, humor, and joy--all with the aim of helping single people trust that God loves them."
-Mollie Hemingway, Senior Editor, The Federalist
