Hi! I’m Veronique Butterfield.
I have a heart for single women in their 30’s, or older, who lead a God-honoring life and desire marriage, yet have no signs of Mr. Right anywhere.
I live in Freezeconsin (Wisconsin!) with my huggable husband, along with his Bible commentaries, grammars, and lexicons.
I grew up in France (hence my French first name, French accent, and occasional wonky English grammar).
My passion: Helping chaste marriage-minded single women like you get married, without compromising your high standard of purity. You don’t want useless pep talks on waiting (because you’ve been waiting for twenty years already). What you want is practical guidance to actually find the right guy for you and get married in the next 2-3 years. This ministry is to help you do that in a wise and God-honoring way.
You’ll never hear a contentment lecture from me nor get any guilt trip about wanting to be married.
Your desire for marriage is good because marriage is good. Marriage was God’s idea in the first place.
My season of singleness lasted for what felt like forever. Even when I was in my twenties and was surrounded by friends, I never had boyfriends, which was the norm in courtship culture.
My season of singleness stretched until I was in my mid-thirties, until God providentially showed me what kept me, and thousands upon thousands of women like me, stuck in singleness.
Once God straightened out my thinking, I changed course, and set out to find my future husband. After a lifetime of singleness, with God’s help and a lot of work, I found the man of my dreams! You can read my story of getting unstuck and getting married here:
Two things I don’t like: (1) When people give contentment lectures to singles to make them feel bad about wanting love.
(2) When couples who married young and haven’t experienced the pain of protracted singleness tell Christian singles over the age of 30 that they shouldn’t feel alone since they already have Jesus.
Random things I like: egg rolls and croissants (blame it on my Chinese-Vietnamese-French heritage), journaling in pretty notebooks, and the sound of my husband’s chuckle.
Embarrassing stuff: I’m bad at grammar and I’m a typo queen. I have a black belt in procrastination. And if I could replace my French accent with a perfect American accent, I would, so when I say “spatula,” it doesn’t sound like, “spa-toola.”
