When Jesus Isn’t Enough—The Ultimate Meal

To all those who feel lonely, empty, broken, forgotten, and starving for fulfillment in life…

If you’re a single woman, you’ve heard it a thousand times:

We don’t really know why you’re still single, but hang in there, girl. Just keep doing the right things, and God will bless you. Jesus is enough.

But sometimes it just doesn’t feel like Jesus is enough—even though you know He should be.

Why can’t you experience a fulfilling relationship with an awesome Christian guy—what’s wrong with you?

As a single, Christian widow for 17 years, Monica knows what it’s like to long for more.

Monica reveals how indulging in her own “buffets” left her famished and longing for food that fulfills—a feast from her Fiancé above.

What she learned and now shares here is that you can enjoy the most satisfying life by honestly answering the one question you’ve been afraid to ask: Is Jesus really enough?

Watch Monica Talk about Her Heart for Helping Women

Could You Use a Deeply Fulfilling Meal for Your Soul?

If you feel less than fully fulfilled at times—sometimes even downright drained and depleted—you are NOT alone.

Monica Matthews has been there, done that—and burned the t-shirt!

As a single mom and widow of 17 years, she knows what it feels like to desperately want to feel fulfilled as a single, Christian woman.

When Jesus Isn’t Enough is the book for you if you’ve ever…

  • Felt you had to settle for less than God’s best in relationships,
  • Wished you didn’t feel so alone,
  • Made relationship mistakes you’re embarrassed to admit,
  • Felt guilty that Jesus just didn’t feel like enough,
  • Wanted to quench the thirst no one knows about within your soul, or
  • Wanted to know why you can’t find relationship fulfillment while so many other women do.

With her candid and often brutally honest perspectives, Monica challenges the lies women believe—lies that cause them to look for fulfillment in all the wrong places.

She exposes the poor job the Christian church often does of ministering to the souls of women—single and married alike. Sometimes Jesus doesn’t feel like enough—even though all the cliches say he should be.

And she serves up a deeply satisfying meal—the ultimate meal—that could only come from the eternal Father and Fiancé of every single woman—Jesus.

“Monica, I want you to know that your book has brought me back to a friendship with Christ after nearly two years of feeling betrayed by him. My faithwalk had been crippled, but today I had a breakthrough and I haven’t even finished reading yet! Thank you!!”—Michelle L.

“A much needed subject to be addressed. Monica delves into the subject many want to bypass and sweep under the rug. Fearlessly she shares her journey in finding exactly the meal the single heart desires.”—Cindy R.

Your fabulous book, When Jesus isn’t Enough, has brought me to tears, caused me to laugh aloud and moved me in ways that fellow Christian authors have been unable to do.“—Andrea B.

Monica has exposed every fiber of her being in the pages of this book.  There is so much brokenness in the world today, how can anyone make it through the day to day without Jesus!?  As I read the pages, too many times I felt like I was reading my own story.” —Pam W.

“I’ve just finished your book! It really spoke to me…You see, I have a habit of beating myself up.  Thank you for reminding me that I am ok!!! Your very personal style of writing was quite touching and after reading it I felt as if I had known you for many years… You laid your soul bare to write this book and it was evident…thank you for your contribution to my faith.

Start Enjoying the Fulfilling Life God Has Promised You

You don’t have to continue feeling lonely, rejected, isolated, and not good enough.

Monica explains her passion for seeing you—and every woman, for that matter—enjoy the abundant life and freedom God has so freely given us:

My daughter and I, in one of our many discussions about this Christianity thing, realized one night that our relationship with Jesus seems at times much like experiences we’ve had at fine dining establishments or at wedding celebrations.

We walk in starving and parched only to look down at the finely designed but meager-looking meal on our plates and think, really? This is supposed to satisfy our hunger and thirst? Yet in the end we realize that it was not only exactly what we needed—it was more than enough!

And I have come to find out that Jesus is more than enough. As I wrote this book—actually, prepared this fine dining experience for you—I tasted a Savior and friend with arms wide open waiting to address my needs as a woman, right where I’m at. He can do the same for you.

The problem is that we Americans are so accustomed to an abundance of food—and easy food. Our waistlines, diseases, and ineffective spirituality speak to our buffet mentality. We pick and choose and think more and bigger are better. But quality doesn’t always equal quantity.

Whether we eat a legitimate meal or a spiritual one, many of us are simply engorged, bloated with sugary carbs that give us short bursts of energy but no lasting stamina. The fillers. Ultimately, these leave us exhausted, physically and otherwise.

But fine dining is not about glutting ourselves. The entire experience of dining is a celebration of life, from the chef who painstakingly envisions and prepares it, seeing to every detail, to the one who humbly serves it to our little hungry tummies. While the cost for a lavish meal is hardly menial, the reward is exponential on so many levels. We leave satisfied, nourished, comforted and replenished. We have been served with life to sustain life.

This book, ladies, is about fine dining. Nourishment. Comfort. And fellowship with other women who walk in your shoes.

Experience When Jesus Isn’t Enough and discover…

  • How to respond in faith when life deals you a difficult blow
  • The key to revitalizing your relationship with Christ
  • The surest way to overcome lust and the desires that so easily consume us

  • Why you won’t find the most loving man you will ever know on any dating sites, and
