My Thoughts On The Book: For my reader friends who know me, No! I am not planning my wedding and all my children are married. As a pastor/pastor's wife I thought this book would be something good for our library. As a pastor's wife I am occasionally asked to serve as the Wedding Director. This is not a job I take lightly. I want all my young couples to start out grounded in Christ. I desire for young couples to steer away from the glitz and glamour of the wedding ceremony towards God. This book is a lifesaver. I loved how the book was divided up into short, easy chapters covering everything there is to cover on a wedding. The authors left no stone unturned. When my daughter married she and her husband lived out this book. I do not remember ever attending a more Christ-centered wedding in my life. They made a commitment to Christ and have now followed it to the mission field, working in orphanages in Moldova. The money you spend on a wedding does not matter....what does is the commitment to Christ the couples have. I LOVED THIS BOOK!
