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

Do Hard Things

This book is amazing!  It is written for teens by teens.  I love how they describe it on the front,
 'A Teenage Rebellion Against Low Expectations.'
That is what this book is about.  It encourages kids to step out of their comfort zones to do hard things.  And when you do step out of your comfort zone you are leaning more on God because you know without His help you could never do it.
This book also gives examples of kids who have stepped out of their comfort zone and the outcome that came from it.  They're stories were all truly amazing.  I would encourage everyone who is either going into, already there, or already out of their teen years to read this book!
