Love Is A Flame: Book Review



About The Book:


Real People. Real Stories. Real Love.


Happily ever after. Does it only happen in fairy tales, or in real life? Over the years love may burn strong and steady, but sometimes it grows cold. However, it can be rekindled--and these stories show how. Be inspired by true accounts of how love was revived and renewed.

You'll discover that love can grow stronger and burn brighter through the years as you read more than forty stories from everyday people like
  • Jan, whose marriage was restored despite adultery.
  • Marsha, who fought pornography and won.
  • Bryan, who realized his family, not his career, was his most important responsibility.
  • Emily, who learned that real love overcomes unrealistic expectations.
  • Jeff, who went from dissatisfaction and boredom to falling in love all over again.
    The true stories in Love Is a Flame will warm your heart and show you how to create a new spark in your marriage and build it into a glowing flame.

    My Review:

    This book is a must read for all married couples, regardless of the stage of life you are in. As you read the  stories of couples who could of given up on one another, or their marriages, but did not, you will be encouraged in your own. You will be reminded that even though you may be in a Christian marriage that does not exclude you from trials that will test you on all levels. It is also a wonderful reminder that there is more to a marriage than just romance...you have to work at it and you need God at the center of it. Although these are stories of other people's marriage, you will come away from this book with ideas that can be used in your own marriage. I know it did.

    I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!

    BUY IT: You can purchase Love Is A Flame online, directly through Bethany House Publishers. It is also available through your favorite, local Christian bookseller.
