A True Love Story
We often get our first glimpse of love stories from fairy tales. As we grow, love stories become cast in HollywoodÃ¢ÂÂs light. Some are pleasant, but unrealistic; others promise fulfillment but deliver cheap sensuality instead. After steady doses of these second-rate Ã¢ÂÂloveÃ¢ÂÂ stories, and observing all the shallow and broken relationships around us, we get to wonderingÃ¢ÂÂ¦ Does true love even exist, or are there only empty imitations? Are the worldÃ¢ÂÂs melancholy melodies all there are, or is there a sweeter song? And in a culture that says Ã¢ÂÂJust do it!Ã¢ÂÂ is love worth waiting for?
In their best-selling book, When God Writes Your Love Story, Eric and Leslie Ludy provide answers to these relationship questions and many others. Sharing from their own love story and those of many other couples, they prove that true love is still possible When God Writes Your Love Story! With honesty and humor, they dare singles to give God the pen and allow Him to script a love story that surpasses any Hollywood screenplay.
But, as they point out, this isnÃ¢ÂÂt possible unless you also let him write your life story. If you want to sing His sweeter song for romance, first you must fall in love with the Ultimate Romancer. A relationship with Jesus is the only one that brings true fulfillment. Without it, no human romance can be satisfying.
There are no formulas or check lists in this book. ThereÃ¢ÂÂs only the challenge to trust God enough to wait on Him for a true love story. Of course, Eric and Leslie donÃ¢ÂÂt literally mean waiting around! They encourage readers to live fully for GodÃ¢ÂÂs purpose in every season, including singleness. They also show how to practice faithfulness and preparation for marriage, even before your future spouse arrives.
Each chapter wraps up with several verses of Scripture and a section of questions to reaffirm the bookÃ¢ÂÂs truths. Although there were a few areas where it felt a little repetitive, When God Writes Your Love Story was a welcome reassurance that even in a world of cheap love, authentic love stories can- and do!- exist. It reminded me that I can wholeheartedly trust God to script a story that is just right for me; not only in romance, but in every other area of life. I give it 4 out of 5 stars!
I received this book from the publisher for free, in exchange for my review.

I recently had the chance to read and review When God Writes Your Love Story by Eric and Leslie Ludy through a service at Blogging for Books- WaterBrook Multnomah that gives people the chance to get books just giving a review, whether positive or negative.
I have heard about this book for forever (honestly don't know any girl in any Christian circle who hasn't) but had never read it. I was hesitate to pick this, in all honesty, because I was afraid it would be like all the other 'cutesy, this is what you do, just be patient and wait in the Lord. just be content' blah blah, etc pre-marriage single girl books out there.
But it really wasn't like that at all. This book was real. This book showed what could really truly happen if you chose to let God "have the pen" and let Him do what He already knows is best for you.
This book also doesn't preach in a pretend to be ok, act like it doesn't matter, way where it's a sin to want to be married and to think about it a lot. This book shows how desiring a spouse and Godly marriage is totally ok- its just how you deal with and process those desires that determines the outcome. So many of us are afraid to REALLY let God be God in this area and this book shows you how unnecessary that fear really is.. in a honest tangible way. It talked about how it's ok to dream of that really great Christian guy, and furthermore, thats the desire God put it you- He gave you the desire for that kind of husband.
All in all, this is a really great book. Every one considering relationships should read it.
