Spoken For: A Book Review

About The 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?

In 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

About The Authors:

Robin Jones Gunn, best-selling author of the much-loved Christy Miller Series and co-author of Praying for Your Future Husband, has had more than 4.5 million copies of her books sold worldwide. Her frequent speaking engagements have taken her around the globe. Robin and her husband live in Hawaii and have a grown son and daughter.

Twenty-six-year-old Alyssa Joy Bethke is a popular blogger and a newlywed. She serves with her husband—speaker, author, and spoken word artist Jefferson Bethke—as they travel the world sharing God’s lavish grace. Alyssa lives in the Pacific Northwest with Jeff and their yellow lab, Aslan, and enjoys reading, hiking, paddleboarding, and, of course, coffee.

My Review:

Spoken For was a delightful, encouraging and inspiring read! It is the perfect read for any woman, from young adult to senior citizen, who is trying to discover more of who they are in Christ. With personal stories, a strong amount of scripture references and a wonderful writing style one will read this book in no time flat, but the words will stay with you for a long time.   

With topics like "You are Loved", "You are Pursued", and others this book is perfect for individual study or perhaps a book study with a small group of women. I loved the questions at the end of each chapter, which allowed me to dig a little bit deeper into God's word. It was a beautiful reminder that our timing is not His, and while we wait we are loved!

If you are looking for a book that will encourage you, or another woman in your life, then definitely pick up this book!

I highly recommend Spoken For and give it a huge thumbs up!
