Praying For Your Future Husband - Robin Jones Gunn & Tricia Goyer

5 Stars!!!!!
ABOUT THE BOOK -    
Have you ever thought about praying for your future husband?
Will it make a difference?
There's only one way to find out…
From when we were small girls, most of us dream of “The One,” our future husband. We think about what it would be like to be a bride. We wonder who that special guy is and when we'll find him. The great news is that what you do now can make a difference in your life and the life of your future husband!
Authors and good friends Robin Jones Gunn (Christy Miller series) and Tricia Goyer (author and former teen mom) believe God answers women's prayers for husbands—even husbands they may not meet for years. They invite young women to pray boldly for their future mate … while also asking God to prepare their own hearts.

MY REVIEW - 
What a great book! I got this book to review then give to my daughter. This book is for young women who don't have "the one" all picked out or those who may think they do. It tells you how to pray for the right one to come along and with the help of God, getting the right kind of man for you and your life.
The way this book is set up - The chapters are about each of the qualities a person and the future husband should have (trust, strength, patience, understanding, etc.) each of the Authors, Robin and Tricia take turns writing paragraphs about the chapter subject, either funny little quips or from experience.  There are questions to answer - "God says love is patient. How is patience an expression of love?" There are Bible verses all throughout. There is a prayer for you and a prayer for your future husband in each chapter. And lots of things for you to think about when asking for your future husband - "Circle the top 10 qualities you would want in your future husband" "If he made a list for you, which one would match qualities already present in your life today?"

I think the idea behind this book is great! I think it gives a girl or young (or older) woman something to focus on. It puts everything into perspective. Are her wants and needs realistic? Is she wanting or already with the right kind of man? And finally, This book put the focus where it should be - on God! Using him to choose the right one. I can't wait for my daughter to read and use this book.

This would make an excellent gift for a mother to get her daughter!

Thank you "Waterbrook Multnomah", (Blogging for Books) for sending me this great book to review!
