The Chase: Trusting God with Your Happily Ever After
In fact, if you asked them, Kyle and Kelsey would name God as the author of their story. And they're glad they trusted him to write it for them. Unfortunately, too many girls hoping for their own happily-ever-after have taken matters into their own hands, chasing after boys when they should be chasing after God. And that inevitably leads to heartache, low self-esteem, and poor choices as girls give in to pressure from media and peers to look and act a certain way to attract guys.
Kyle and Kelsey want girls to know that it's never too late to trust God with their love lives, that wherever they are, there's always hope for the future. Through their own story and the stories of others who long for love, they show girls how to put God first, how to value and protect their purity, how to deal with loneliness and bullying, and how to see themselves as God does--a one-in-a-million girl who deserves no less than God's best.
Cafe Lily's Review:
The overall theme of this book is about young women, waiting on God and pursuing him rather than guys. Put God first, and trust HIS plans for your life. Don't allow relationships with the opposite sex, distract you from your focus on God.
The writing is definitely geared for younger women and teens. Older women may have a tougher time relating to the stories and examples.
I liked that Kyle chimed in with a male perspective however to me, it felt like his voice was a bit lost in many of the chapters It would be nice if Kyle would write a book directed strictly towards young men, so that single guys won't miss out on good advice.
