Praise for Spoken For

Spoken For is the kind of book every Christian teenage girl wants to read: a perfect mixture of truth and love story and Jesus and humor. Robin and Alyssa have practically written the handbook for every young woman looking to understand how God feels about them.”
—Annie Downs, author of Speak Love and Perfectly Unique

Spoken For is filled with life-changing truths that will help you discover, strengthen, or reclaim your true identity. This book will teach you how to embrace the person God has created you to be while dispelling the lies that keep you captive. A must-read for every young woman who longs to know her true value, beauty, and purpose.”
—Allie Marie Smith, founder of Wonderfully Made and author of Becoming Who You Are in Christ

“I highly recommend this relevant and essential book to any young woman trying to understand romantic relationships, navigating her way through the dating world, or even considering marriage. Robin and Alyssa are candid, thoughtful, and wise as they share personal stories and universal truths. This would be a great tool for mothers and daughters, book clubs, and youth groups. I’ll be recommending it to my young-adult readers.”
—Melody Carlson, award-winning author of the series Diary of a Teenage Girl and TrueColors

“Alyssa and Robin have written a book that is so tender and true, full of encouragement for all of us as we try to understand the love of the Savior. You will walk away from this book changed for the better and celebrating the fact that you are truly loved by the One who knows you best, the One who created you with a plan and a purpose.”
—Melanie Shankle, New York Times best-selling author of Sparkly Green Earrings

“What makes Spoken For unique is the authors’ ability to internalize and understand that we are in the midst of a divine love story! Alyssa and Robin casually and eloquently remind us not only of who we are but whose we are and that we are wanted, loved, and spoken for.”
—Bianca Olthoff, speaker, teacher, and chief storyteller for the anti–human trafficking organization The A21 Campaign

“In Spoken For, Robin’s and Alyssa’s gentle honesty and personal stories made me feel as if we were out having coffee together and talking about our love for the Lord. This book is a perfect reminder of how great his love is for us and how sweetly he cares for us.”
—Erynn Mangum, author of Paige Torn

“Anytime two unique voices come together with a unified message, there is power in it. Robin and Alyssa have different perspectives and life stages, but both have experienced God’s relentless love and now want to give it away. Spoken For will help you remember your infinite worth because of Jesus Christ and what potential abounds if you will only embrace it.”
—Jennie Allen, founder of the IF:Gathering and author of Restless

The book is an extremely easy read.

It's a wonderful reminder of the way in which our first love - our God has pursued us, and will never give up on us.

Robin Jones Gunn and Alyssa Joy Bethke have tapped into one of the great needs in the heart of most women---to be loved. They've written this book, Spoken For, all about the divine romance, the way God loves us, pursues us, and calls us His own.

The book is an extremely easy read. I read it in a quick afternoon. Each chapter generally starts with them taking turns telling part of their own love stories (dating, engagement, wedding day) and then relates that to how God loves us with a few Scripture verses. They conclude each chapter with about five questions for further discussion.

This is not a Bible study. The discussions stay fairly superficial and while it may work well for a book club, I wouldn't choose to use it for my next women's Bible study book. It would be a great fit however, for a high school or college small group for women or even for women who haven't been Christians long and need to discover their identity in Christ. The book is also a sweet encouragement of our position in Christ for any Christian woman who struggles with feeling unloved.

I'm not a particularly emotional, romance-loving, wedding-show-watching woman. I don't care for most 'chick flicks' and didn't start planning my wedding in high school. I didn't dream about 'the perfect proposal' and I don't read romance novels or watch the Hallmark channel. If you do, you'll love this book! But it kind of emphasized emotions and tendencies that just aren't me. That isn't at all meant to take away from this book's best audience or purpose. As a straightforward encouragement that God loves you, this book is lovely---simple and sweet and true.

I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review and the opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”

Spoken For: Embracing Who You Are and Whose You Are is the newest book by Robin Jones Gunn, author of the wonderful Christy Miller series, as well as Sisterchicks and many more. She co-authored the book with the lovely Alyssa Joy Bethke. The story of how these two came to collaborate on the book is itself inspiring as we see how God orchestrated the timing and circumstances to get these important words on paper.

Robin and Alyssa both share from their hearts and experiences as they impart important truths about who we are in God's eyes and our worth to him. Both of these authors write not only to their audience, but to themselves, as they remind us that even in the broken times, even when it seems all is lost and we feel alone, that we are children of God. We the Bride of Christ. We are Spoken For. In each chapter, they take turns sharing their stories. Stories of pain, and stories of hope and love. They share the words that God spoke to us in his precious Word to break down the lies of the enemy that are often so easy to believe and replace them with the truths that God wants us to know about ourselves.

As the chapter headings show us, they remind us that each of us is wanted, pursued, loved, have been called, are of great value, are peculiar treasures, are set free, are covered, promised and spoken for. Whether we are single, married, found Mr Right or are still waiting, no matter what our circumstances, these words hold true for all of us.

If you need reminding of how precious you are, how loved you are, how much our Lord and Saviour is pursuing you has His very own, this is the book for you. And who doesn't need to be washed continually in these beautiful truths? This book is a great encouragement.

Format: Paperback
I recently read Spoken For: Embracing Who You Are and Whose You Are. I literally couldn't put it down. Imagine a book that's helps you discover your true identity in Christ while making you giggle and even tear up at points. It's a fairly small book with stimulating questions at the end of each chapter. Every chapter is titled something about how God feels about you- 'You are Wanted', You are Pursued, .

Something that really impacted me was Robin's list of verses about how God feels about us- one of the verses being Exodus 19:5- "You are a Peculiar Treasure". This list is definitely something that I will go back to, again and again.

My only issue with recommending this book is that the authors spent a lot of time discussing their own romantic relationships. For young woman who are looking for these types of relationships might not be able to look the fact that both authors have both earthly lovers AND Jesus. It would be easy to look past the authors point- that you are being relentlessly pursued by your heavenly father. However, I believe that the author's intention is to be real with their audience- and humorous.

How does knowing that YOU are God's peculiar treasure effect you?

I received this book for free from the publisher’s Blogging for Books program in exchange for this review.

I could not wait to get my hands on a copy of this book!!!
I have loved Robin Jones Gunn for years and recently became familiar with Alyssa through her husband Jefferson Bethke and his book “Jesus Is Greater Than Religion”. When I heard that these two ladies were coming together to produce a “Spoken For”, I was thrilled.
This book is such a sweet, encouraging, wonderful invitation to fully embrace the relationship God so desperately wants with you.
I love that Robin and Alyssa share experiences from their own lives and faith-walks throughout the book. I really felt I was getting to know them and could totally relate to the things they were saying.
There are wonderful Scriptures highlighted throughout the book as well that spoke straight to my heart about who I am in Him.
I also love love loved the “What Do You Think?” sections at the end of the chapters! These self reflection questions really helped me internalize the points of each chapter.
“Spoken For” is a book I will keep and read over and share with my friends.
This would also make a wonderful study for a church group!
