Good Reads Synopsis:
Say Yes to the Love Story of Your Life A great romance was set in motion before you were born. A relentless Lover is pursuing you, and He has made His intentions clear. He wants you to be His forever. How will you respond to the One who longs for you to be His with your whole heart?
In Spoken For, Robin Jones Gunn and Alyssa Joy Bethke speak to your heart about what it means for you to belong to Christ, who you are because of His love, and how that affects the way you live. Drawing on biblical promises and their personal experiences,   these two friends share what it’s like to live out God’s unfolding love story.
 
You are not up for grabs. You are spoken for.

MrsK's Review:
I was so thrilled when I saw a book by Robin ready to be reviewed, I knew that every book of Robin's that I open will be calming, inspiring, comfortable and so well written that I will be swept into the story that she weaves.  I first met Robin right after Christy Miller was published, I was able to meet up with her every year during our Author book sales in October.  I watched as her characters (Christy Miller and Sierra Jensen grew up and met those Sister Chicks as a preview copy).  Her books were featured in my classrooms and now in our school library.  It's always been a delight to meet another reader of Robin's, there is an instant smile that shines from their eyes... a bond that says we are instant friends... an acknowledging smile that confirms we are traveling on the same faith pathway... a connection that we have been touched by the talents, gifts, and wisdom of a woman after God's own heart. 

So I was ready to start my summer vacation with anticipation of enjoying moments with an author that is a special friend.  Little did I know the power of her touch until I opened the cover of Spoken For.  This is not a quick read.  This is a beautiful journey.  A journey within your self, a journey with friends, and a journey with our Creator.  Pondering the nuggets of wisdom can not do justice for the renewal and confirming nature of this book.  Robin's voice encourages and supports His love for you.  Alyssa's bright and crisp enthusiasm is contagious.  Spiritual joy bubbles forth through out your days as you journey through acceptance, healing, and a blessed assurance that is shared directly from His love.  

With personal witness connections, scripture passages, questions to contemplate... every chapter is a fresh beginning.  If you have read the Bible you will find a depth to passages you already know.  If you have not begun your scripture journey, this will be a beautiful introduction to a personal quest that will last you a life time.  Either way, take this journey with Robin, Alyssa, and all of us who are realizing the depth of being Spoken For.

Thank you ladies for including me in your journey's with His word, I will always be along this path with you....


About Robin Jones Gunn
Robin’s first grade teacher wrote on her report card, “Robin keeps the entire class entertained at rug time with her stories.”

Even with such an early affirmation, Robin didn’t think much about becoming a writer during high school or college. She was more intrigued by the idea of traveling to foreign lands and telling people about God’s love.

But Robin’s husband also noticed her gift for storytelling and urged her to attend a writers’ conference. That first conference, in 1979, opened the door for publication of devotions, articles, interviews and 14 children’s books.

When her two children were young, Robin would rise at 3 a.m. and brew a pot of tea. Then she would go to work, creating stories for teens that later became the Christy Miller, Sierra Jensen, and College Years books.
