My Thoughts: I chose this book to try something different. I am a married woman and the wife of a pastor and I have to say that this book that was wonderful. I think every single lady should read it and every married lady should read it so they can be mentors. It seems that today being a single lady is a bad thing and they are told these days are told that they should pray for their future husbands, which is not a bad idea. The thing they are not told ever is how to prepare to be the Godly wife they are meant to be. This book was a easy read and very engaging, Once I started reading it I could not put it down. I enjoyed how the author talked about her own past relationships, good or bad, and her experiences as a bridesmaid. I loved the study guides at the end of each chapter. The study guides would be great for a study group but they could also be used by one person too. I worked through every single answer and discovered a good bit about myself I did not know.
