Read an Excerpt

As women, we are given a great gift. Our purity. And everything that makes us who we are emotionally—- our feminine nature, our sensitivity, our vulnerability, and our desire to give ourselves fully to one man——is part of that gift. Our purity is a treasure. It is so much more than just our physical virginity it starts with who we are on the inside. It is like a priceless pearl, tucked safely away in a protective shell, growing and becoming more beautiful with time.

In my dating relationships, I damage my precious pearl of purity. I felt dirty and used because of it. But the damage didn't happen when I " went a little too far" physically. Giving away this treasure started the moment I gave away my heart and emotions to men who were never meant to receive that gift. I had been careless with my treasure. I had allowed my heart to become battered and broken.

I used to think that the unbearable devastation of "breaking up" with a boyfriend was just a natural part of the dating process. But there was nothing natural about it! It was a pain God never meant for me to experience. The valuable and delicate pearl of me purity had been too soon from its protective shell, then tossed back, damaged and bruised.

When God Writes Your Love Story (Expanded Edition): The Ultimate Guide to Guy/Girl Relationships 4.7 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 66 reviews.

If we completely submit to our Lord, we will allow Him to choose our mate and to guide our courtship. Too often singles ignore this part of submission. God has a plan for our lives but we become impatient. We also allow our hormones to take control. Chapter 4 is the most important one in the book. It discusses a daily walk with Christ. All other things will fall in place if He is the center of your life. While Eric and Leslie Ludy's book, When God Writes Your Love Story: The Ultimate Guide to Guy/Girl Relationships will appeal to young adults, however there is also a message for everyone on allowing God to be in control. The Ludy's use scripture to back up their thesis. Each chapter is followed by discussion questions and "A Step Further" suggestion. The chapters switch back and forth between Eric and Leslie. This would make a great small group study for young adults.

Wonderful book, a must read for Christian singles or anyone who's single. It tells us that we need to wait for God to show us who we should give our hearts too. Too many people now a days just go from relationship to relationship, not understanding why things don't work out. The Ludy's explain that we need the Lord to direct our lives and not approve of our own selfish decisions and desires. We need to learn to love God before we can love anyone else.

"Another one of those Christian dating books, huh... Nothing I haven't heard before..." Is that what you are thinking? Probably so, because that is exactly what I thought when I started to read this book. After just a few pages my thoughts on the book were changed... Let me tell you why. A book not filled with how to get the right guy or how to get the right girl, but a book about striving to be the right guy or girl... How refreshing! So many of us are doing the complete opposite, instead of focussing on becoming the right one we are trying to find the right one, the one we are supposed to spend the rest of our life with. What Eric & Leslie point out in When God Writes Your Love Story ¿is that over time the "pen" of our lives has been taken from the One who desires to write our story. And the one who is responsible for taking that "pen" is you and I. We feel like we, in our own strength, can write a better story than the One who has the greatest story. It is He who showed to us the greatest love story of all when He sent His son to die for us, worthless sinners... But oh! how He longs to once again have the "pen" of your life and mine, so that He can then start writing your most desired love story. The Ludy's back up all of this with Scripture. You will find personal experiences inside this book that Eric & Leslie desire for us to learn and grow from... While I do not necessarily agree with every thought in this book, I do recommend it to others. Maybe you are a girl who has been through several hard relationships just trying to find the "right one" or maybe you are a guy who is so tired of standing strong in the world that we live in... I encourage you to pick up this book, while it should not take away from the encouragement and principles found in the Bible, it could very well be a good help to you in your Christian walk. I received this book free from Waterbrook Multnomah’s blogging for books and have given my honest review of this book.

Chapter 2: Close Encounters With The...5th Kind?- I sprint toward the scream and- great. Just great. A boy is standing there, staring at a furry goldish thing. It has rounded ears, a bushy mane, and long claws. A name pops in my head. Lion. The lion growls at the boy, who steps back. His eyes are wide. "Stay back!" He snaps. The lion moves forward, crouching to pounce. I shove the dark-haired boy. The lion throws itself forward, deciding that I'll be tastier than the boy. Where does that logic come from? I swing around to take on the lion. It swipes out at me, catching my arm. I leap back. The lion slams a huge paw against the side of my head, making me see stars. I fall to my knees. I'm lucky the claws hadn't hit my head. The boy smacks the lion in the side of the head with a spinning roundhouse kick. He grabs my wrist and pulls me through the grass. "You can join my group. We're all boys, but I doubt you care." He says. I shake my head. "Nah. I'm okay with that." We sprint through the grasses. I realize the boy's still holding my wrist. We burst into a forest. We scale a large oak with a big opening in the middle of where are the branches start. There are little cot/beds made of palmetto leaves. A few boys are settled on them. Guys, this is..." the boy turns to me. "Boon. Well, thats what they call me...my name's Dylan." I say. "I'm Wolf." Says a boy with tanned skin, jet black hair, and gray eyes. "Sup? I'm Raze." A fair skinned boy with red hair and blue eyes says. "Hi. I'm Hurley." A young boy, who looks about 9, with fluffy blond hair and blue eyes. "And I'm Thor. We got thrown in here just before you. You're new, so we'll just throw this out there. This whole place is'nt freedom-- it's just a long, slow way to end the world. They're PROVING that they can end the world, or control it." The boy that brought me here says. -Wild Fire

A friend of mine who likes to pride herself in being a relationship guru would always tell me about this book called "When God Writes Your Love Story." So, when I got the opportunity to review the book--the expanded edition, nonetheless--I jumped at the opportunity. The book is almost 300 pages but read very quickly. The book is divided into sections, and each chapter has some Bible verses and discussion questions, with anecdotes and sappy stories thrown in every now and then. I will not spoil all the details of this book, but it will not surprise anybody that this book is about giving up the details of your love life to your Creator. This means waiting on His timing and staying pure for your future spouse. While sex is discussed, there are no graphic details, so I would even recommend this book to junior-high-schoolers if they so desire. I suppose I would have liked a different title that at least named the Christ. After all, who is God? Ask several religions, and you'll get several answers. What was interesting was that I read some reviews posted on Barnes and Nobles for this review. Most were overwhelmingly positive, but one was very negative and had a very low rating. Reading further due to my curiosity, I realized the reader gave a very low rating because the book was apparently all "fluff" and did not tell readers how to get to know Jesus better, but instead the book just said to get to know Jesus better and draw close to Him as you surrender your [love] life to Him. After careful consideration, I must say that is true. However, with the title and cover of this book, I can not say I was expecting any super deep theological or prophetic writing in the book. Still, after much thought, while this book is nice, I would say that people should get "I Kissed Dating Goodbye" instead if they are going to spend money on a Christian relationship book.
