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

Divergent Serious

Divergent~
In the city of Chicago, there are five factions, the Candor (honest), Abnegation (selfless),  Dauntless (brave),  Erudite, (intelligent), and the Amity (peaceful). Every citizen at the age of sixteen on a certain day must choose which faction he or she will spend the rest of their lives in.  Either stay with their family and friends or leave, never to return.  Beatrice must make the hard choice, to stay or to leave.  Her choice will change her life forever and nothing will ever be the same again.  And she will have to keep a big secret, because if anyone finds out she is divergent, she will die.
This was my favorite book in the serious

Insurgent~
The fractions are a mess, war threatens their comfortable lives and Tris is in the middle of it.  Her life is crazy and grief and guilt are gnawing at her.  Will she be able to think straight to help those whom she loves?  Or will she sacrifice her life because of the pain?

Allegiant~
The factions are gone.  There is no more life as Tris and her friends knew it to be and know they are outside the city gates, finding out all the secretes and lies of their past life.  Will they be able to forgive those who caused them so much pain and confusion?  Will they be able straighten out their lives and make right all the wrong?  Will they be able to help those who are in trouble?

I really liked these books!  Super good and interesting...really hard to put them down.

Warning:
This book was more intense on the intimacy part.  The love story was too much and had a lot of detail.  There was some things said and then things done also.  A lot of in depth kissing and then two scenes, one in the second book and then in the third that was not good and I had to skim over them.  Other than that and a few bad words in each book, they were good.
