We raised girls and encouraged women to know that they are enough and complete in who they are PeriodT!
We encouraged girls and women to go after goals rather than discourage them because a man might feel intimated.
We encouraged women to know that they can desire to be married and live life well as a single woman at the same time.
We raised girls to know that being single is a viable option and not a bad thing.
We viewed marriage and being single as Varsity rather than single being JV.
Women were encouraged to cultivate and pour into friendships with other women as much as women are encouraged to date and get married.
Women removed the weight of societal expectations and judgments and walked in the FREEDOM of who we were created to be....NOT who society or even the church says we are supposed to be. But who the Lord says we are!
HAVE YOU ever felt like something was wrong with you because you are single? Have you been based "Why are you single?" or "Why aren't you married?"
You were able to remove the pressure you feel as a single woman
You knew you were enough NOW
You didn't feel pressure to date...or date if you want to
You stopped limiting yourself and started working on those goals
You knew that nothing was wrong with you
You knew that God has not forgotten about you
You knew that you can live your life well NOW and desire to be married
You knew that you can live your life well NOW and not desire marriage
You knew that Single is a blessing if you allow it to be
You never dimmed your light again
You never apologized for who you are again
You had the opportunity to receive support and encouragement to walk in the
FREEDOM of who YOU ARE and who GOD CREATED YOU TO BE!
I'm Dr. Kristen Guillory and My heart is for single women to LIVE WELL NOW!
Why are you single? is an extremely annoying question to me. I have had people tell me not to earn a PhD or buy a house because a man might feel intimidated. Well, good thing I had other reasons.
One part of me is being single, yet to many, that's the main part of me and even with all I've been able to accomplish, I'm still not complete because I am not married. WRONG! I am complete and whole now!!!
I am an international solo traveler, a VERY proud aunt, single and my self-care is non-negotiable! I am the president and chief consultant of KSGuillory Enterprises, a consulting firm that provides training, strategic development, and coaching in Mental Health, Self Care, and Public Speaking. I am very transparent and love humor! Yall, I walked away from my amazing tenure track professor position in 2014 and the first few years thereafter were not easy AT ALL. I have experienced great pain and I have experienced amazing joy!! I am an international speaker, speaker coach, and author of "Walking Through the Fog, Holding on to Hope When You Can't See the Sun". As a speaker, I have spoken over 800 times to over 80,000 people. I have spoken at over 30 singles events, including the Legacy Conference, and as a main speaker at the Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship Single's Conference. I have created initiatives for single women to live life well! I host international Self Care Trips--Yaas! I am a former professor of social work and counseling of 12 years, and it was on a certain college campus that I became aware of how weird it was for some to see a single woman who was happy.
**walking on campus**
Student: Dr. Guillory, are you single?
Student: Ok good!
Me: Why good?
Student: Because you're happy and you wear heels.
This confused me until it was explained to me-- The notion of being single and happy was something very few saw, and I was wearing heels for me and not men.
One of my graduate students came to my office with a look of defeat.
Student: Dr. Guillory, is something wrong with me?
Me: What do you mean?
Student: I am 22 and have never dated. Is something wrong with me?
Me: Absolutely not.
Student: Thank you so much for saying that I don't have to date. I just got out of a relationship, and I don't want to date, but everyone is telling me to hurry up and date.

"Having Dr.Guillory as a mentor and an example of a confident single woman has changed my outlook on ...well everything"
"Since I was 16 years old I have worried about having a boyfriend. And for the first time I am not worried about dating. It is so freeing to have that pressure removed. I would not be in this place without Dr. G"
"Wow, it was so refreshing hearing from a single woman because most of the time speakers at singles events are married men."
"Ooooommggg! I needed this! You didn't focus on giving us dating tips and how to be a wife. You want us to live! WHYYYY haven't I been living?"
"Something shifted after hearing you. I thought I was unworthy. I thought God forgot about me. That is not true. I can live well and desire to be married. Mind Blown."
"I am so grateful that I got to attend your session. I am inspired. I have been living in the shadows. I felt like I was you and you were me. I have felt so much pressure from my friends to date and even change myself. Meeting you has been life-changing!"
"A Blessing to experience your Singleness is a Blessing workshop. It brought my Spirit so much joy. So about this mentorship?!"
"I had no idea I would get so emotional during your session. I guess I didn't know that I still believed that I was unlovable, which I now know is a LIE! Look, I know I am older than you, but that didn't matter. I have never met anyone like you. I feel like a weight has lifted. Thank you"
Think about what 5 weeks of encouragement and community could do for you.
This will impact every part of your life. You will show up differently. You will feel better. You will LIVE WELL!
