Spoken For

Spoken For
By Robin Jones Gunn and Alyssa Joy Bethke

About the book:
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.
You are not up for grabs. You are spoken for.

My thoughts:
I couldn't wait for this book because I love all of Robin Jones Gunn's books, both fiction and non-fiction. They are filled with warmth and whimsy. Robin enlists the help of her good friend, Alyssa Joy Bethke, blogger and wife of author Jeff Bethke. In the first chapter we learn how Alyssa and Robin became friends. Alyssa was doing an internship at a church in Mauai, Hawaii when she met Robin and told her how much Robin's Christy Miller series meant to her. Does anyone remember that fun story from Robin's book "Victim of Grace". It was exciting to see that the Alyssa from the book is Alyssa Bethke.

The premise of the book is that we all, as children of God, are spoken for. The book lives up to its title. Every chapter showed a way Alyssa and Robin learned to see who they were in Jesus Christ and how they began to live there life differently.

" Spoken For" is full of encouragement and reminders that we are precious to Christ.
