Praying for Your Future Husband - Giveaway


Book - Praying for Your Future Husband.

Authors - Robin Jones Gunn and Tricia Goyer

Publisher - Multnomah

Paperback, 207 pages



Teenage girls of today need some guidance in finding a husband. They also need to learn to pray for him to be a man of God. They need to start caring about him before they even meet him.

This book includes inspiring devotions with true stories from the authors' own lives, as well as stories gathered from others.

A few things that stood out for me:

1. A boy from youth group told a girl he loved her, without even knowing her. This caused a frenzy of emotions but was not true love. The authors do an excellent job describing this common situation, and how girls can evaluate and understand how to approach godly relationships.

2. Many girls write a "list" of what they are looking for in a husband. These can be long, hopeful, and even picky! The authors share a completely different kind of list - a Biblical list of qualities that are more important than anything else. I love the way these ideas are presented!

3. I appreciate hearing Robin and Tricia's personal stories in each chapter. They really help the messages come alive.

4. Both Robin and Tricia are well-known writers of Christian Fiction.  I respect both authors and believe they have taken their gift of crafting stories and created an enjoyable work of non-fiction that will touch the hearts of many teens. This book is sure to become a must-have classic in the Christian genre!
 
Each chapter ends with a prayer, a section to jot down thoughts, and several discussion questions that would work perfectly in a small group study.
