In today’s ever-changing world, one of life’s greatest challenges is simply finding “the one” to spend it with, especially for a follower of Christ. From morals and beliefs to communication skills and personality traits, searching for a future spouse who lines up with everything you’re looking for can seem more than difficult—sometimes, it may even seem impossible.
Within the pages of #TheList: Waiting for Your Soulmate in a World of Unlimited Possibilities, author Allyson Marx shares how finding your special someone is indeed possible because God has designed a perfectly imperfect person just for you! By sharing her own experiences with her search for “the one,” Marx takes you on a journey of discovering true love, which ultimately begins with encountering the love of God.
Inspired by her own list she created, Marx explores the power of getting back to the basics of relationships by taking a closer look at your list—or making one for the first time—to consider which attributes of a future partner align with God’s desires for you…it might even lead you straight to the arms of your soulmate!
With a voice that is personal, charming, and real, Marx begins an important and sometimes humorous conversation about love and marriage in this contemporary age that will encourage you to trust in your heavenly Father without taking life too seriously. While we may not know God’s plans, we know that His heart for us is nothing short of faithful, loving, and good.
Put your faith in the One who created you and has destined you for a love that lasts, leaving it all in His hands. Make your list, know your worth, and never settle for less!
