I recently read a great book. It was the kind of book that got me thinking and questioning my faith. I guess it had me asking myself if I really do trust God. I am a Christian and have been for many years, I thought I trusted God. But this book made me take a harder look at how I was trusting Him. You see I have been on a search for a job for quite awhile. I have prayed about it, had others pray from me and with me but, I received no employeement. After reading this book I have questioned myself if I really was trusting Him in my circimstances? Our finances are very tight and I owe money. Month after month it is the same, there has been no change, we are still struggling. This fiction book opend my eyes. It was, Forever With You , Book one, The Married Years by Robin Jones Gunn, I highly recommend this book to anyone that has ever struggled.

Christy & Todd: The Married Years
Now that they have been married for almost two years, Christy and Todd are facing challenges neither of them expected. Everything that felt familiar in their relationship is being shaken. All they had hoped for in their future together is about to change.
When Christy shares her life-altering news with Todd, she doesn't receive the joyful response she was expecting.

As Christy and Todd's relationship is radically altered will they continue to drift apart? Or will they come through the major shifts with a deeper love each for other and the One who brought them together in the first place?
My Review: Forever With You, Book 1 - The Married Years by Robin Jones Gunn
Christian Fiction, Romance
Christy and Todd Spencer have a rough road ahead of them. They face job loss and difficulties that test their faith and marriage. But with a strong faith they face adversity head on and shine. Towards the end of the book as they renovate Todd’s fathers house they do a house blessing that I thought was a fantastic idea. They wrote scriptures on the floors before the carpet was installed. Wow what a way to show God praise.
This was one of the most inspiring books I have read in a very long time. It’s the kind of book that had me anticipating God’s next move. It inspired me to think and trust God in a greater way. I had to pull back and look at my faith on the issue of trust. Todd and Christy’s faith is the kind of devotion to God I dream about having. The author Robin Jones Gunn’s strong faith shined in this 5 star book. I highly recommend it to anyone that is a Christian.
I want to give a high-five to the author Robin Jones Gunn and publisher for bringing compelling Christian books that are entertaining and give hope to the reader with stories of faith. The Book Club Network Inc. provided me with this book in exchange for my honest review and I am so grateful for their, the authors and publishers generosity.
