Spoken For {Embracing Who You Are and Whose You Are} by Robin Jones Gunn and Alyssa Joy Bethke

Book Description:  Say Yes to the Love Story of Your Life
A great romance was set in motion before you were born. A relentless Lover is pursuing you, and He has made His intentions clear. He wants you to be His forever. How will you respond to the One who longs for you to be His with your whole heart?
In Spoken For, Robin Jones Gunn and Alyssa Joy Bethke speak to your heart about what it means for you to belong to Christ, who you are because of His love, and how that affects the way you live. Drawing on biblical promises and their personal experiences,  these two friends share what it’s like to live out God’s unfolding love story.
My Thoughts:  I have always loved to read anything written by Robin Jones Gunn and now she and Alyssa Joy Bethke have teamed up and written one of the best (in my humble opinion) books about the love Christ has for each one of us . . . aptly titled Spoken For {Embracing Who You Are and Whose You Are}.  
This book seems to have been written especially for me!  Don't you just love it when God calls your name!  
This is a heart matter.  Who could love you more than the One who created you and then died just for you!  No one but the Savior. 
This is an easy read.  I love how the authors have chosen nuggets of truth and love and spread them throughout the book.  The love of Christ literally popped off the page through this book and straight into my heart.
There is also a place for the reader to write her thoughts at the end of each chapter in the "What Do You Think" sections.
If you are having a difficult time understanding Christ's love for you or you need/want to draw closer to Him then this is the book for you.
This book also makes an excellent gift.  Mothers who need encouragement and love, the graduate who is going off on a new location, that special person who is in the hospital, or just for you!
