Must reads

My summer has been so busy, but i finally had time this week to finish two books from the giant stack on my shelf. I fell in love with Captivating by John and Stasi Eldredge so I figured that I would read the male version called Wild at Heart. Both books break down why women and men are like they are, beginning with Adam and Eve. It really draws you nearer to your Creator by explianing how God made the femanine heart tender, loving, and compassionate like His. He made the masculine heart to be a warrior and strong like His. Its such a beautiful picture that God gave us characteristics like his own so we could desire to be nearer to Him. Thats love.

When God Writes Your Love Story by Eric and Leslie Ludy was so good! I read this one in two days. Its really more than just about relationships, but it about giving back to God what was His all along: your life. The authors call it "giving God your pen" so that He can write your story for you. It touches on topics like purity, high standards, and godly relationships, but it also gives encouragement to singles that God has their story in His hands. I wish I had read this book in high school!
