My Review:

This is the book that I received to read and review. It was awesome. I love Michelle McKinney Hammond's books. They are always full of bible verses to back up what she writes. The entire time I read this book I felt convicted like this is stuff that I need to know and be working on before getting into a relationship. It also had what to watch out for when you are dating a man that leads to problems then and later. The audience it is intended for is definitely female. I marked passages that stood out to me. One of the most important points the book made is being whole in Christ before being able to be right in a relationship with a human male. If you are not whole in Christ every aspect of your life suffers. Also an important point made is acting like you are married with the person without being married on paper. It sabotages the relationship and he might not ever marry you. The book points out several pitfalls relationships fall into. I definitely recommend the book especially if you are a single female. :)

The Value Non–Fiction Line provides readers with invaluable resources at a low cost, and offers priceless insights to help build meaningful relationship.
