This is a different kind of book so I’m not entirely sure how to review it. It’s a really neat guide and if you are interested in different countries or want to be a missionary, then I would recommend this for you. Brian C. Stiller shares insights on many countries that we have heard of, such as Kenya, China, and Korea, but also about countries that we never knew existed. For example, have you heard of Moziambique? Chances are you probably haven’t. I know I haven’t.

by Stephanie Rische

Release Date: January 1, 2016

Publisher: Tyndale Momentum

ISBN: 978-1-4964-0481-7

Genre: Christian Life /Relationship Dating

Have you ever felt alone while it seems as if all your friends are getting married and having babies wondering if you’ll ever have that chance? Stephanie Rische completely understands. In fact, she found herself wondering if there was something wrong with her – was she not pretty enough? Not fun enough? Not datable enough? So she turned to God as she began to pray earnestly for God to bring the man she was meant to marry into her life.

Instead, she was given eight matchmakers.

I Was Blind (Dating), but Now I See is a true story about a young woman who tried really hard to find someone she could fall in love with despite the fact that she kept falling flat on her face. Amid the most cringe-worthy and awkward situations, Stephanie’s journey shows how God’s grace and love can meet us in ways we never could have imagined. We just have to open our eyes in order to see it.
