How Do You Respond to Those Dumb Comments?
How do you respond when other people make silly, annoying, rude or repetitive comments to you about being a single person? What kinds of things do they say? We had an article in the March/May 2018 issue of SPAG Magazine, sharing things that people have said to other Christian singles about their state of ‘unwedded bliss.’
If you’d like to share some of the comments said to you, please fill out the form on this page, or email us:

Can 44¢ a day really help SPAG Magazine?
While we’ve recently overhauled some expenses to reduce costs, there are still lots of costs we need to cover to ensure we keep SPAG Magazine available and to provide it to you for free.
This is one of the reasons we sell items through our online store.
During the 2017/2018 financial year, we received some welcome donations and purchases (thank you so much), but still, the outstanding costs were just over *$1,600. That works out to around $4.40 a day. If just ten people had contributed 44¢ a day for the year, our operating costs would have been met – that’s less than one small cappuccino a week!
Would you consider being one of those ten people for our current financial year (2018/2019)? Perhaps you could ask nine people from your church or singles group to make up the remainder. Maybe you could put in a good word for us if you know a great Christian organisation that might be able to help.
Consider also that while we purchased a new computer and monitor back in 2016, which came from Vicki’s now depleted savings account, the computer developed a major fault in mid June 2019, so it had to be repaired and two major parts replaced at a further cost to Vicki. We have to consider that when the time comes to completely replace the computer, she does not have the funds to do so.
With the assistance of group of ten supporters such as you, putting aside 28¢ a day for the next two years (or 14¢ a day by twenty supporters), we’d have enough money to purchase a new computer tower and monitor as our current computer reaches the end of its life.
