Publisher Description

Millions know Emily Maynard Johnson from her appearances on both The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. At the end of a long, fruitless search for a husband, Emily found that waiting right in front of her all along was the truest love of all: the unconditional love of the Lord.

Overcome with embarrassment following her nationally televised heartbreaks, Emily finally committed herself to the only one she knew would never leave her empty and alone. Abandoning her need 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.

I Said Yes chronicles Emily's experiences on both The Bachelor and The Bachelorette and the way that God turned her life upside down through the knowledge and acceptance of His true love.

As Emily sheds light on her life as a believer in the spotlight, she teaches us:
How to embrace the gift of true redemptionWhat it means to fully surrender your heart to GodHow to say yes to God's ways, God's love, and God's timing
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 traded fame in favor of the Lord--and to that unconditional 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!
