Title: Love That Lasts
Author: Jefferson and Alyssa Bethke
The book was about: This book is the story of Jeff and Alyssa’s dating, engagement and marriage. It’s not just their story though; it’s the things they learned along the way. It’s what they had known from social media, Disney, fairy tales, pornography, and their own past… they used that knowledge and used this book to show what marriage really is in the eyes of Jesus. Jeff and Alyssa tell their story in a fun, honest and open way. They alternate writing chapters and always point it back to Jesus.
I loved: I really loved the whole book. This book is very easy to read, well thought out, and applicable for many different people. Married couples should read this together and discuss, parents should read to be prepared to talk to their children about it, engaged couples should read together…etc.
Reading this book made me wonder about: As reading this book, I started to wonder how my boys will do with their future wives. My wife and I have discussed so many of these topics both before we got married and continue to go over these regularly. It truly helps. This book is such an encouragement to hear that we are at least doing some of the right things when it comes to keeping our marriage #1.
Overall, the book was: This was a great book. I would highly recommend it to everyone. Young or old. Married, engaged, or single. This book has wisdom for everyone. My favorite was the last few chapters where they really spend some time on how marriage ties to the gospel and why it is important to be married if you are called to be married. God is using them through this book. Read it.
I give the book 5 out of 5 stars!
