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

Before You Meet Prince Charming; by Sarah Mally


This book is written for young women and girls and its goal is to help them in a day to day battle to keep their hearts pure.

Every girl feels the same pain of emptiness, loneliness, and lustful feelings for wanting to be loved and the author of this book sympathizes with all girls, encouraging them in this matter.   Sarah Mally encourages us in many areas such as looking for the right aspects in a person.  She says to wait upon the Lord instead of anxiously worrying if there ever will be the right one.  Instead of flirting and things like this we need to instead keep our focus on God and He will in time bring the right person in our lives.  God will fill our emptiness if we just trust in Him and wait upon Him.  Sometimes God does not give us our desires but we need to trust in Him knowing that He has a perfect plan in each of our lives.

What I liked about this book is that it moved me in many different ways.  It strengthened my faith and led me to think more about how I was living my life and also how to live my life more like Christ.  It encouraged me by knowing that I am not the only one who struggles with this and that I can look to the Lord for help.  And though it is a hard battle I know that I can look to the Lord for strength day to day.    And through the struggles I know that God has a plan for my life and that he already knows if I will and to whom I will get married to.

Another great thing about this book is that it had many examples of struggles and also joys in the lives of others.  This will also encourage us knowing what to and not to do.

This book also has a fairy tale story  in the beginning of each chapter telling the life of a princess and the struggles she faced, with temptations from the alligator. And though the whole time she faced temptations and heard lies she kept her heart pure, with many hard days and nights, until the day she met her own prince charming.

                This book was a really great book and should be read by all young girls who face the same trials.
