Memorable Monday - June 18, 2018

It's Memorable Monday! This idea was created by Becca from The Becca Files to highlight books that we've read in the past and are memorable to us. 

I'm cheating a little bit today. Becca's idea is for us to highlight books that we haven't blogged about before. Last week I highlighted a memorable marriage book so this week I want to highlight a memorable book for singles. I did blog about this book before, but I think it's worth highlighting again. The book I'm remembering today is Praying for Your Future Husband by Robin Jones Gunn and Tricia Goyer. 

Why It's Memorable

This book encouraged me to trust in God and helped me develop a closer walk with Him. This book really changed how I viewed being single. One of the things that I did after reading this book was to start praying that someone would want to marry me because they saw Jesus in me. On the evening that my now-husband and I decided we were "officially dating", he said that he was initially attracted to me spiritually. Just one more example of awesome answered prayer!

From the Back of the Book

Have you ever thought about praying for your future husband?

Will it make a difference?

There's only one way to find out…

From when we were small girls, most of us dream of “The One,” our future husband. We think about what it would be like to be a bride. We wonder who that special guy is and when we'll find him. The great news is that what you do now can make a difference in your life and the life of your future husband!

Authors and good friends Robin Jones Gunn (Christy Miller series) and Tricia Goyer (author and former teen mom) believe God answers women's prayers for husbands—even husbands they may not meet for years. They invite young women to pray boldly for their future mate … while also asking God to prepare their own hearts. 

In Praying for Your Future Husband, Robin and Tricia share their two vastly different experiences, including the things they did right and the mistakes they made on the path to meeting and marrying their husbands. Each chapter includes helpful Bible verses, prayers, and practical application, along with true stories of women who prayed for a husband and how God answered in remarkable ways. 
God has a beautiful romance prepared for you. Prayer is the key to unlocking the love story … with your future husband and with God, the lover of your soul.

Now It's Your Turn!
