Reviewed by Anne Boling for Readers' Favorite

<p>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.</p>
<p>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.</p>

Easy to read and understand book about allowing God to choose your mate. So many teens and adults for that matter seem desperate for a relationship, any relationship in some cases. It seems their identity is all wrapped up in the relationship and the focus and energy is maintaining the relationship, even if it's unhealthy. This book shares the authors dating disasters and the desperation so many folks have. The authors finally realize their identity must be in Jesus Christ and not in some relationship. The authors hand over the reins of their love lives to God and allow Him to write their love story. The book is authentic and offers solid tips on how to achieve peace of mind when the Creator of the Universe is in charge of this important area. The book's theme might be: Do you want to settle for less than what God has planned? I read the book after a college student raved about it and agreed--it's a fantastic book. We bought 3 copies, one for each child and a household copy which we're planning to share with others. My husband is currently reading a copy. When he's finished we'll give each child their own copy, ask them to read, and we'll discuss it afterwards. I believe this is a life altering book and recommend it highly.


When God Writes Your Love Story changes the focus a bit from a lot of other high-profile contemporary Christian "relationship advice" books from "Don't have sex before you are married because God says not to and because it will be more special if you wait" to "Wait, because God's best for you is for you to wait for the One who you can love and trust completely. Wait, because knowing God's love is more important than knowing another human's. Wait, because when you are so in love with God, you will WANT to listen and care about what He says." One example is that most of us don't like chores or our parents rules- until we decide that they are important for us, that they really are what is best for us, and because we love them and decide to obey them, and that it's the same with our Father in Heaven.

This book also talks about not just seeing how close you can get without going "too far," instead talking about keeping your purity (both physical and emotional- as in, not sharing your heart with someone who will not care).

I would totally suggest this book to anyone willing to have some opinions gently- unobtrusively- challenged and thoughts provoked.


Eric and Leslie Ludy's "When God Writes Your Love Story" is a wonderful non-fiction look at male-female relationships. This book offers the reader both the male AND the female perspective (on different topics) in the same volume. Overflowing with powerful lessons and insights into romantic love relationships, this book is appropriate whether you're in a relationship or looking for love. It is never too late to benefit from this work.

There are thoughtful questions for reflection at the end of each chapter. "When God Writes Your Love Story" covers EVERYTHING - from choosing God's way to sex to marriage and more. Eric and Leslie Ludy are the most adorable couple, and they have written a very important book.

I do not have the right words to describe how amazing this book is. It conveyed what I have been feeling that God has been calling me to and helped me to see that others feel the same way I do.

What to say? The book is everything it was and more. It is always a delight to read such inspired prose.
