Have you ever given any thought to your future and your future husband? If you are like most young women, youíve had the fairy tale wedding planned in your head since you were in preschool. But have you ever seriously thought about what you would like in a husband? What qualities he should have? What character traits you would like for him to have? Whether you have or have not given these things some thought, this book is for you.
Robin Jones Gunn and Tricia Goyer take us through character traits and spiritual traits that we should seek in a husband. Through a lot of personal stories and opening their hearts to us, they give a fantastic framework with which we can pray for our mate. There are some heart-wrenching moments in this book, as Robin and Tricia get totally real with us as readers. They lay their pasts and their hearts bare for us to get a true look at what God truly wants for us.
Each chapter is short and to the point. They illustrate each point or trait with their own experiences and the experiences others have shared with them. At the end of each chapter are questions to answer regarding your personal desires and some specific prayer points. Although I am already married, I used this book as a way to rekindle the love I have for my husband as well as to think about the future spouses of my children. I have a much more focused prayer life for both my husband and my childrenís future spouses.
I canít encourage you enough to pick up this book, read it and answer each of the questions. If you will go the extra step to really think about and write out your answers, it is my firmest belief that God will be able to show you the person He has chosen for you.
With excellent scripture references throughout, this is a book every young woman should own, write in and wear out.
