Book Reviews


Great read5 star

This is an awesome book for those that need help in setting boundaries in their current relationships or simply learn how to be a better partner in all relationships.55


Just what I needed5 star

Prior to this book I not only did not establish boundaries in my relationships but also didn’t understand the necessity for them. This book has opened my eyes to a lot of weaknesses I need to work on, weaknesses that I allow others to get away with & how those weaknesses should be resolved. I’m thankful a friend recommended this book, I’ve highlighted a lot of tips to continuously review on my dating journey.55


A great reminder5 star

I’ve been dating for over 10 years. I’ve never been able to have a successful, healthy relationship that lasted more than a year. This book was an eye opener and I great read. There are many areas and signs to look for when dating, that can either make or break a relationship. I have high hopes that I will be able to find my true match.55



This book has opened my eyes about what a healthy relationship is and how to do it following Christ. This has definitely changed my perspective on how to date and find someone while loving and honoring Christ.55
