Part One - Choosing God's Best: In this section you are asked to pay attention to what you want, what you can give, and which red flags to be on the look out for. Keeping in mind that every situation is different, this part allows you to think about what works best for you as well as reflect on past relationships in order to know what will be better for you in the future.
Part Two - Being God's Best: This part speaks to you working on you, dealing with your baggage and working on building who you are and your relationship with God, in order for you to be the best spouse to your partner. This serves as a reminder that it takes two to make a relationship or break it.
Each chapter ends with 3 to 5 reflective questions which are great for the reader to solidify the knowledge gained from each chapter. I do wish there was a little more room for you to write your answers to the questions in the book, this is a small critique just so everything is in one place, but you could always use a notepad and place it in the book.
Overall this book is a great read for those who may be looking for introspective self-help in preparing for a long-term relationship that is rooted in Christian values.
The book is based on scripture which is extremely important to me. I just want to note right here that although the book is based on scripture it is not preachy…… it is more like having a wonderful conversation with someone who cares about you and wants you to understand the importance of being ready to marry.
This book opened my eyes to what love is, how to love and what love means and/or looks like based on scripture. God is love and therefore, he and his word are the best places to learn of love. I am filled with joy when I learn more about love.
I am 57 years old, have been divorced for almost a year. I found this book comforting and appreciated knowing some of the mistakes I have made were shared by others. Possibly if I would have had material like this to read at the age when marriage was so very very important, I would have understood the importance of love in a marriage, examined my fears, shortcomings and doubts.
This is a wonderful book, which I would highly recommend to anyone.
