When Sinners Say "I Do" Discovering the Power of the Gospel for Marriage

The gospel is something we need in every area of our lives.  In marriage and in singleness.  In joy and in sorrow.  In good times and in hard times.  When life feels good and when life feels confusing.  This book showed so much of my need for Jesus and His grace. It calls us to look at our own sins and not be so easy to point out the sins of those around us.   It shows the great gravity of our sins.  We can all tend to point fingers and defend or blame our sins on others or life circumstances.  I think especially today it is so easy to do this and not truly see our sins.  "It is wrong, not because of what it does to me, or my spouse, or child, or neighbor, but because it is an act of rebellion against the infinitely holy and majestic God." -Jerry Bridges "There can be no small sins against a great God." -J.I. Packer Dave Harvey mentions in the book that with true sorrow of our "little sins", our awareness of God and His mercy grow. Be quick to see our own

Little Women

 Little Women is about, Meg, (pretty) Jo, (tom-boy) Beth, (sweet and loving) and Amy (artistic) and how they lived their lives.  Each going through hard and good times, and learning more about the person who made them, so perfect.  I liked this book a lot. I think all women and little girls should read it.  (sorry men and boys, but I know you won't enjoy it.)

  2. I have heard of that book. I think they made a movie about it, Don't worry, I already know I wouldn't like it. But do I fall into the category of men or boy?
