"Spoken For" by Robin Jones Gunn & Alyssa Joy Bethke

"Spoken For" is a book by two authors Robin Jones Gunn  and Alyssa Joy Bethke.

Who does not love being loved? In fact we all want to belong to someone, be loved by someone, be courted by someone and we want to be aware of someone's love for us. If you have never known that there is Someone deeply and passionately in love with you and can't wait to be reunited with you for eternity. God.

Through their various life experiences in love, the authors attempt to bring out Christ's love for His church, His bride-to-be. The book takes us through a journey with them as they love, live, laugh and cry through everything.

I loved the book and its simple language. Easy for anyone to grasp at what they are trying to tell us. The book switches back and forth between the two authors' tales, which kind of baffled me a bit in the beginning but I caught up to it pretty easily.

Alyssa opens up her heart and shares every single struggle she faced. Her boldness in sharing her vulnerability during the times when she felt unloved will surely touch your heart as it did mine.Robin's wisdom and her maturity in Christ shines through at the place where she has a talk with her nine year old neighbor.

I would recommend this book to anyone who is wondering "is there anyone out there who loves me?". It resonates throughout this book, there is Someone Who has loved you, just the way you are. You are His delight. God has been chasing after you to love you and speak tenderly to you.
