Overview

The Chase: Trusting God with Your Happily Ever After

Kyle and Kelsey Kupecky couldn't have dreamed a better love story for themselves had it been scripted by a bestselling novelist like Kelsey's mom, Karen Kingsbury. In fact, if you asked them, Kyle and Kelsey would name God as the author of their story. And they're glad they trusted him to write it for them.

Unfortunately, too many girls hoping for their own happily-ever-after have taken matters into their own hands, chasing after boys when they should be chasing after God. And that inevitably leads to heartache, low self-esteem, and poor choices as girls give in to pressure from media and peers to look and act a certain way to attract guys.

Kyle and Kelsey want girls to know that it's never too late to trust God with their love lives, that wherever they are, there's always hope for the future. Through their own story and the stories of others who long for love, they show girls how to put God first, how to value and protect their purity, how to deal with loneliness and bullying, and how to see themselves as God does--a one-in-a-million girl who deserves no less than God's best.

Kyle, a Christian recording artist, and Kelsey, a Christian actress and the daughter of a well know author began preparing for their future spouse when they were thirteen. The book begins and ends with their love story. But in between the story is a beautiful outline on how to start trusting in God to help you find the one you are meant to be with. The authors use personal illustrations and stories about friends to illustrate their points. Scripture and well thought out advice give the reader a clear path to follow. I've been married for 19 years. So technically this book doesn't apply to me. But I was still able to glean some useful information from it and I enjoyed reading the book. And I can honestly say, that while this couple has not been married long, they have a wonderful and correct concept of the process to finding the person that God wants you to have and preparing for a marriage that blesses Him. I would recommend this book to anyone who is still looking for that special someone and will be keeping it for my children to read when they get older. The authors used relevant and culturally current information that will appeal to the teen and young adult that this book targets. I received this book free of charge from Revell Reads in exchange for my honest review.

Excellent book! A great read especially for young ladies. I like the fact that they advocate focusing on chasing after God and not a boy. I especially love "The List" section. Long ago I did just that and God brought along the right guy that fit that exact list God had put into my head. I highly recommend this book and so do my teenage daughter and one of her girlfriends.

The Chase is a wonderful book all about trusting God with your happily ever after. As someone who has yet to find mine, this book was a big deal for me. Reading great advice about chasing God, staying away from unhealthy relationships, and always building your guy up were inspiring, and I loved the insight into how guys think. With chapters like “God First”, “The List”, “R-E-S-P-E-C-T”, and “Just Haven’t Met You Yet”, this book really did cover all of the bases, and it was full of examples of how things were done differently and how painful that was for the couples involved. I felt like that gave girls another reason to try their hardest to do things the right way, and I am sure it was super encouraging. Along with all of the great advice and ways to apply it to your life, I really enjoyed getting to learn all about Kyle and Kelsey’s story. They really do have a fairy-tale relationship, and it was super sweet to read about how much they love each other. I know you are not supposed to compare your relationship to anyone else’s, but I hope I have a fairy-tale too someday. They both really chased the Lord leading up to the day they met, and I don’t think their relationship would have worked out so well as it did, if they even started dating at all, if it weren’t for their dedication to Christ. It was inspiring to hear and actual success story, as it made it so much easier to believe that what they were advising was actually doable. And I also just love that they took on the project of writing a book like this. I cannot help but give The Chase all five bookshelves, because it is such a good book for girls, and women, who are waiting for their princes. It is sure to strengthen their relationships with the Lord, inspire them to wait until the right man chases them, and show them how to go about having a Christ-filled relationship with the man of their dreams. I applaud Kyle and Kelsey for a job well done, and cannot wait to see what the future holds for the both of them, especially when it comes to their ministry! I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review. (This review is from my blog, spreadinghisgrace.blogspot.com)

A book that spans all age groups! Although this book is centered on relationship advice for Teen to Young Adult dating the life lessons in this book are suitable for any age. Like, "When we take out eyes off our own lives and focus on others, we become the best versions of ourselves." And, "God loves to do more than we could ever ask for or imagine if we chase after Him." A great go-to book to use as well if you work in children's or youth ministry! Bravo on Kyle and Kelsey's 1st book!

God is so good to those who chase after Him! Kyle & Kelsey share their personal stories of how letting go of expectations and seeking Jesus truly made a difference in their lives. By making the decision to do things God's way - waiting for the person that Jesus HAND picked for them - and chasing after God while waiting, Kyle and Kelsey were able to find each other. This story isn't your typical Christian advice of, "Don't date! Save your heart!", but instead it is an encouraging life line for teen girls who want to do things the right way - but are so pressured by this world to do things the world's way. Kyle and Kelsey offer practical advice, and share from their own mistakes and triumphs. It truly feels like you are sitting down for coffee with two friends that you have known for a lifetime. Their words are so inspired by God, and I believe He truly wants this for his daughters - for them to chase after Him. He will give you your heart's desire! This is a must read for any teen girl - I want to give a copy to every girl I know!

I couldn't have asked for a better book for young ladies! Kyle and Kelsey Kupecky share real life (their lives) stories with readers to encourage them to CHASE after God first and not man. This book is truthfully and beautifully written in a way thats easy to understand and relate to. I am encouraged and motivated after reading this book to not be focused on my future spouse but instead on God. He already has a plan for my life and I (and all of us young ladies) need to trust him with whatever he has in store for us for our futures. I highly recommend this book to all young ladies out there. Single, dating, attached, married; I believe this book will touch you all in different ways. If I could give this book more than 5/5, I would but alas! :)

This book is a revolution! Every girl (and guy) need to read it! Kyle and Kelsey do an incredible job relating to the reader, sharing their personal stories, lessons and advice. It's all so encouraging, uplifting and real. Trusting God and chasing after Him is so much more valuable than chasing guys. This book will take you on the journey of how Kyle and Kelsey met, how they waiting for each other since they were 13, wrote letters to each other and had a list of qualities their future spouse would have. Never settle just to have a boyfriend, God's got a happily ever after planned for you! Get this book, you won't be disappointed! You'll learn so much, I'm already married and have taken so much from this amazing read.

The Chase is a truly wonderful book and I believe all single girls need to read this book. There are so many wrong examples being set in this world and everyday people fall for them. However in this book Kyle and Kelsey are doing the opposite. They let girls know it’s okay to be different. It’s okay to have high standards and it’s better to wait for God’s best instead of settling for what’s plainly in front of us. In this book Kyle and Kelsey share several relatable stories about things that happened in their lives as well as some of their friends’. All of these stories encourage girls to respect, both themselves and their future husband. Through out the entire book there is one common theme. We should chase God first, above anything and everything. The book also points out that we should trust God with our happily ever after, not just in our relationships, but with our whole life. I would definitely recommend this book to all single girls, but I believe even married women could learn from it as well. The Chase truly is a special book. I learned so much from it and you will too!
