Book Review: Love is a Flame November 6, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — sandra @ 7:08 pm

I just finished reading Love is a Flame.   I really enjoyed the book.  It’s really light reading.  The  book is made up of short, true stories about real-life marriages.  The stories bring encouragement and hope for marriages, whether your marriage is struggling or going perfectly.  I found that I could identify with quite a few of the authors that contributed to the book.  Whether you’re still a newlywed or have been married for many years, this book will encourage you to keep fighting for the marriage that God intends for you to have!

This book was sent to me free of charge from Bethany House publishers in return for my honest review.
