Publisher Description

Learn more about the new "Bachelor" Arie Luyendyk from one of the people who knew him best--"Bachelorette" Emily Maynard Johnson.

Millions know Emily Maynard Johnson from her unprecedented double appearances on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. Millions also know that neither of the relationships from those shows lasted much longer than a commercial break.

Overcome with embarrassment following her nationally televised failures at romance, Emily finally committed her heart to the only one she knew would never leave her empty and alone. Abandoning her desire to be chosen by men and finding peace in the fact that she was already chosen by God, Emily found the joy she had been looking for in serving God.

In I Said Yes, Emily tells the story of her life before and after reality TV fame, describing the profound new reality she discovered when she forsook fame in favor of the Lord. At the end of a long, fruitless search for a man, this courageous young woman found the truest love of all waiting right in front of her. To that love, Emily said yes.

Great Read!

This book was a fun and interesting read. My favorite part was seeing how God changed her view of relationships over the course of her life and how she learned to find her identity in Christ.

Fame seeker

Typical book about a young woman seeking fame......claims she didn’t really want to sign up,to be on the bachelor.....but she did. Claims she refused to be on the bachelorette.......but she was. Claims she likes her privacy.......but goes on tv shows. Claims her first priority is her child.......but still runs all over the world seeking “love”. I have a strong feeling her deceased boyfriends parents don’t think too highly of her.....JoJo

Good book

Truly a page turner. Just proves you can be young and beautiful and still have a ton of problems. Emily was always one of my favorite bachelorettes. Thank you for sharing your story! So happy you found your forever mate!
