Book Review: Praying for Your Future Husband Preparing Your Heart for His

From when we were small girls, most of us dream of “The One,” our future husband. We think about what it would be like to be a bride. We wonder who that special guy is and when we'll find him. The great news is that what you do now can make a difference in your life and the life of your future husband!

Authors and good friends Robin Jones Gunn (Christy Miller series) and Tricia Goyer (author and former teen mom) believe God answers women's prayers for husbands—even husbands they may not meet for years. They invite young women to pray boldly for their future mate … while also asking God to prepare their own hearts.

In Praying for Your Future Husband, Robin and Tricia share their two vastly different experiences, including the things they did right and the mistakes they made on the path to meeting and marrying their husbands. Each chapter includes helpful Bible verses, prayers, and practical application, along with true stories of women who prayed for a husband and how God answered in remarkable ways.

God has a beautiful romance prepared for you. Prayer is the key to unlocking the love story … with your future husband and with God, the lover of your soul.

Praying for Your Future Husband Preparing Your Heart for His by Robin Jones Gunn and Tricia Goyer is a book for young Christian women.  It's exactly what the title says, a sort of guidebook for praying for your future husband, yourself, and your future relationship.  The book has questions at the end of every  chapter for more in depth thinking on each subject.  Also, it has scriptures at the end relating to it all.

First off, I absolutely adore the cover.  Yes, I can be swayed by a book cover.  This one with the clouds and fields, I can just feel a warm spring breeze passing through!

The authors have a good subject here, I think.  It is important to pray for everything in life, and especially something as important as your future husband.  They take turns relating their own life experiences with men.  They are completely, even sometimes painfully, honest about the choices they made.

I liked the book, although I do wish they had written it for women of all ages.  Not being a  young woman anymore, some of the advice didn't quite mesh for me.  But there are things to learn from it about prayer and trusting God that are good for all ages!
