As you may have realised by now I am a reader. I love books - all types of books - fiction, factual, romance, thrillers, autobiographies, self help books... you get the picture!!! But without a doubt the best type of books are those which help me to grow in my faith as well as help me in a practical way.
And today's post is about just such a book!!!
Darlene Schacht, from Time Warp Wife is a wonderful example of a woman of God. I have been a fan of her blog for a long time and I love her honesty as she writes, and her wisdom as she shares practical tips and stories to encourage women in their marriages and their walk with God.
Well, I'm delighted to be part of the launch team for Darlene's brand new book - Messy Beautiful Love. It's a book about marriage and how messy but wonderful marriage and love actually are. I've been privileged to get a copy - and even though I will be totally honest when I write my review - I just know it's going to challenge me and it going to be amazing! I can't wait to get stuck in!! Here's a little about the book...
"Messy Beautiful Love delivers an incredible testimony of grace that offers hope for today’s marriages and a spark for rekindling love.
Love gets messy.
Financial problems, sickness, aging parents, a chronically unhappy spouse . . . trials will inevitably come that threaten your marriage. No matter how long you’ve been married or how strong your relationship is, sooner or later you are going to have a mess to clean up.
Messy Beautiful Love is about cleaning up messes God’s way, exchanging your ideas for His, and being prepared for both the best and the worst that marriage has to offer.
When you surrender your relationship to God, then and only then will you experience the blessing of marriage as He intended. This is the blessing of obedience.
Messy Beautiful Love is an invitation to that obedience. The cynical world says marriages don’t last, but God knows better. Tune out the world and tune in to Him. When you do that, a beautiful marriage is not only possible, it’s inevitable."
