Mrs ARS4 Stars Out Of 5True life and loveFebruary 24, 2018Mrs ARSQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Real-Life Romance was a book that was unique, heartwarming, and lovely. This book contains several true life stories of couples finding each other and the various trials and tribulations they had to go through to get to that true love. I liked the shortness of the chapters. We get a very well rounded glimpse of each couple as they tell their stories and an application at the end which includes Ponder This topics and Ask Yourself applicable questions.
All of these stories show what it really means to love through sacrifices, good and bad times, and obedience to God. Some are bittersweet and had me crying others seemed like fairy-tales, as much of one a person can get in this life. It also had me thinking and pondering my own romance story with my husband. This was a nice pick me up read.
I received a complimentary copy of this novel. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.
Chasing Butterflies4 Stars Out Of 5Very encouragingFebruary 16, 2018Chasing ButterfliesQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5I love inspiring romances and even more when they're real! And Real-Life Romance did not disappoint me. The short and sweet stories were easy to read. And those stories showed that having a great marriage is always possible, even when you feel like all hope is lost. The couples in there were not picture-perfect Christians. Instead, the book for example included stories of people that are divorced or that only became Christians after they had been married for a while. Because of these different stories, this book can not only give encouragement for young adults that are just starting to date or court, but also for those that are starting to date again (for whatever reason) or that are married and struggeling.
I also liked the questions and ideas for personal reflection at the end of each chapter. That presents a perfect opportunity to read and discuss this book with your spouse or in a group.
So no matter what stage of life and marriage you're in, I'm sure you'll find some encouragement and helpful ideas in this book.
Kristieupstate NYAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5sweet collectionFebruary 14, 2018Kristieupstate NYAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a sweet collection of stories, reminding me of the Chicken Soup for the Soul books. This book is a collection of sweet, short stories that focus on one concept - love; how perfect for today being Valentine's Day?! Each story will inspire you, encourage you and remind you of the magic of love, the feelings that go along with it and what true love actually is. At the end of each story there is a "ponder this" section and also a "ask yourself" section that really takes it another notch up from being just a story as it shares thoughts and asks pointed questions to really have the reader think about what was shared in that particular story and then apply that to one's own life and own relationships. This is truly an inspiring read that will inspire hope and those warm, fuzzy feelings to brighten and warm your heart on this cold, dark winter days.
