When God Writes Your Love Story by Eric and Leslie Ludy

So I finally finished this book! And it was incredible and amazing on every level! I'm just going to dive right in and tell you everything that's great about this book. But first here's the cover:


Ok, now that you know what it looks like I can start talking. So first of all I love how Eric and Leslie share the book. One chapter is Eric's opinion and the next is Leslie's which is great because all the girls reading this book can know what's going on in a good christian guy's head and a guy can read what a good christian girl wants in a man. At the first chapter or two I was confused because I started reading and the two author's started talking about God. I thought ok... this is good. I like where their going but I thought this book was supposed to be on relationships... not about God. But I ended up loving where they went with it. They talked about how you need to have a great, passionate desire to know and love God before you can even think about diving into a relationship. God has to be your number one first and foremost. Once you have that loving, unexplainable relationship with Him then you can start looking (in the right way) for for that special someone. Actually Eric and Leslie made it very clear that you shouldn't be looking. God is the one who looks. He finds that person and will put that person in your life when He is ready. Not when we're ready. You just have to trust that He'll do it all in the right time. In the first chapter they also talked about pretty much what I just said. That you need to give your pen over to the Author of Romance, to the greatest Author there is. Instead of trying desperately to write your own love story you need to give your pen over to God and let Him write out the perfect fairy tale love story. 

In part two they talked about something that I thought was really cool and that I had never thought about before. You can pray for your future spouse. Even though you don't know them yet you can still pray that God will guide them and prepare them for you and that He would keep them safe. I thought it was so sweet how Eric Ludy had written love notes to Leslie even before they had ever met. They also talked about purity and how we should save ourselves physically and emotionally for our future spouse. I agree whole heartedly on the physically but I think it is totally ok to share your thoughts and emotions with guy-friends. 

There is so much more they talked about like picking a "team" of people to pray for you and to help you decide on the path that God is leading you to go, preparing yourself practically for your future spouse and everything in between. Over all I thought it was a fantastic must-read book that is encouraging, God-centered and helpful.

Happy New Years!!

Happy New Years everyone! 2019 is officially here! Some parts of last year felt like they went by so slowly while other parts feel like they were a blur. But overall, 2018 was a good year and I have a feeling 2019 will be a good year too. 2019 is a new season of life for me and others and I'm so excited to see what God has planned for myself, friends and family.

I know I've already posted my goals for 2019 but there are a few more I want to add. Since writing the Looking Forward to 2019 post, I had a few epiphanies that I think are important.

First of all, one of the authors I follow on Instagram wrote a post today about the difference between dreams and goals. Goals are achievable. They can be accomplished. Dreams can be too, but sometimes certain dreams are out of our control and when we fail to accomplish that dream, we fail. She said how she really wanted to sell a book in 2019. To pitch a book to her agent and get it out there. But that's not a goal. That's a drea…

January 2019 Wrap-Up

Wow! The first month of the year is nearly over! I can't believe it's almost already February. Just one more month and it'll be my birthday!

With the end of January, I'm really starting to think about what I want to do this year, mostly concerning this blog and my writing and stuff. I want to change some things blogger-wise and grow my audience, though I'm still trying to brainstorm and figure out the best ways to do that. There are just a lot of thoughts and ideas floating around in my head right now that are hard to organize and put down on paper (or type out on keyboard), but I'm sure with all these ideas and thoughts, there will come lots more blog posts. So instead of trying to organize my messy thoughts right now, I think I'll just do my wrap-up same as usual.

January Writing: This month's writing has been good. December was a hard month for me. I was super burnt out and blocked in everything I did. Writing three different versions of my Peter Pan …

Friday in Review: Fictional Vacation/Would you Rather

Happy Friday! So, they awesome Lily Cat tagged me in this fictional vacation/would you rather challenge and I am so excited to do this. It sounds so fun!

Alright so here's the deal:

~ Include the graphic Madeline made.
~ Answer the Questions 
~ Tag some other people if you feel so inclined
Let's jump right into this! 
Would you rather... 
Train with demigods for the summer at Camp Halfblood OR attend Hogwarts to learn some spells for a semester?
How is this even a question? ;) Camp Halfblood of course! I adore the Percy Jackson series, so I would do just about anything to be a halfblood for the Summer. The real question is, who would my parent be?? My enneagram four side who loves being special and different wants me to be a kid of one of the big three... maybe Hades just to make myself extra special and unique from everyone else ;) But most likely I'd end up being like a Posiedon kid... or if we're being real probably Apollo cuz I'm a writer and all that, even though …
