"Spoken For" by Robin Jones Gunn & Alyssa Joy Bethke

About this book:

  Say Yes to the Love Story of Your Life.
  A great romance was set in motion before you were born. A relentless Lover is pursuing you, and He has made His intentions clear. He wants you to be His forever. How will you respond to the One who longs for you to be His with your whole heart?
Spoken For, Robin Jones Gunn and Alyssa Joy Bethke speak to your heart about what it means for you to belong to Christ, who you are because of His love, and how that affects the way you live. Drawing on biblical promises and their personal experiences,   these two friends share what it’s like to live out God’s unfolding love story.
  You are not up for grabs. You are spoken for.
Includes questions for group discussion and personal reflection.

My personal Rating- 

This was a fabulous book! I honestly wanted to quote all of it! The wisdom is this book is amazing! I personally would recommend this book to every girl who’s ever had a crush—and then read it at least once every year. I’ve been in awe of Robin Jones Gunn ever since I read the first Christy Miller book (which I’ll be re-reading and reviewing soon!) “Spoken For” made me even more in awe of her. Reading about both authors’ relationships with their husbands (and how their guys proposed!) was incredibly sweet but learning more about their Faiths and how we are Christ’s bride was inspiring. 

  “If you were you ask ten couples how they got engaged, each of them would have a different story. If you asked ten Christians how they came to know Christ, they would have different stories as well. God treats us as individuals. He knows what makes our hearts sing. He knows our love language. Jesus orchestrates His “proposal” moment with us and knows what it takes to woo us. He desires for us to rise up and leave all other pursuers. He wants us to be His alone, knowing that one day He will return when all is ready for the wedding. He will call to us to come away and be with Him forever. Until that day, we can live with unwavering confidence, knowing that we are promise to Him. We are spoken for.”

See y'all on Monday!
