Bestselling author Robin Jones Gunn teams up with author and teen advocate Tricia Goyer on a devotional for young single women to help them establish God-honoring thinking and beliefs that will lay a firm foundation for their future marriage.
Movies, television, and novels feature glamorous portrayals of dating and marriage, giving us unrealistic expectations of what true love looks like. A beautiful counterpoint to those dreamy fantasies, Before You Meet Your Future Husband focuses on three areas you, as a young woman, need to address in preparing for marriage:
• your heart—nurturing a place where healthy love can grow
• your head—realigning your thoughts with biblical truth
• your hands—learning to make the most of your God-given potential
This uplifting, interactive devotional helps you approach dating from a place of peace and strength, whether you’re in a relationship now or simply hope to be married one day. With a focus on your own transformation, Before You Meet Your Future Husband offers biblical guidance, real-life stories, thought-provoking questions, and intentional prayers to help you prepare now for the future God has in store for you.
Discover the freedom and contentment that come from preparing for a God-honoring, life-giving relationship.
WOW, just WOW!
This is a devotional that you don’t want to miss! As I read Christian Fiction, I also try to go through a new Christian daily devotional as well. Some of my close friends have teen girls and single college age girls, so the topics outlined here are spot on. This devotional is the perfect choice to help these daughters gain spiritual growth and grasp a better perspective of what life should be as they set their sights on what God has for them in marriage.
This is a 30 day devotional divided into three sections: the heart, head and hands. Each day includes a question to contemplate, a place for notes and a prayer to point readers toward God’s viewpoint as compared to ours in what we want our husband to be, while also leaving room for being content in singleness.
Some of the topics:
-opening your heart
-healing from a broken heart
-forgiving from the heart
-intimacy starts with God
-guarding your heart
-trusting God with your future
-getting rid of thinking errors
-renewing your mind
-the work of your hands
-growing toward maturity
-being guided by integrity
-God’s invisible hand
At the end, four sections of discussion questions can be used to facilitate a small group or for use in one-on-one mentoring. I believe this book would have a great impact on our daughters who will soon contemplate marriage and make one of the biggest decisions of their lives.
I received this book from the author/publisher free of charge, with no expectation of a positive review.
