Why Would God Care About My Love Life?
From the woman behind the screenplay and novel, Never the Bride, comes a roller coaster of a love story with God. Cheryl McKay pulls no punches about what it's really like to be single, with your age creeping up, and no end in sight to the wait for love and marriage.
It seems that many years ago, God asked Cheryl to surrender the pen she was using to write her love story. All He wanted was carte blanche. No problem, right? Cheryl tentatively conceded - that is, until it became apparent that the Almighty had no intention of conforming to her writing schedule, much less the tick of her biological clock. In fact, He blew every deadline she ever attempted to set.
As romance seemed to pass Cheryl by, she couldn't help but question: Could God really be trusted to bring her the love of her life?
Written during a long wait, this book opens up Cheryl's painfully honest, personal journals. She explores what it's like to enlist in God's Marriage Boot Camp, and how to survive singlehood year after solitary year. She wrestles with her Creator over multiple best friends that never see her "that way." Then there are those lists of what she wanted - you know, the ones she revised a billion times then laminated for safekeeping. She watches, bewildered, as much younger women find love that seems to elude her.
Through it all, she falls head over heels for a God who proves Himself to be as resistant to her controls as He is faithful beyond her wildest dreams.
Are you still waiting? Have you lost hope? Venture to victory with a woman who knows just how hard it is to wait for the day when you are Finally the Bride. This audiobook includes a collection of real-life, God-written love stories by such authors as Squire Rushnell and Louise DuArt (God Winks Series, Couples Who Pray), and Victorya Michaels Rogers (Finding a Man Worth Keeping).

This book should be a 'must read' for Christian singles, men and women. There were a number of things that I loved about this book. One that the author was brutally honest and brave to write her own experiences. This is a tell all from 39 year old Cheryl waiting for "The One." To many Christians, this may seem difficult, but Cheryl is spot on when she explains the reasons for waiting before marriage, listening to God's voice, limiting friendships with men who don't commit and the virtue of chastity. I also liked that Chris, her husband shares his story at the end, apologizing for doing what he did to so many women, stringing them along, which is why I feel both men and women should read this.
It will also be enlightening, so that men can understand what women go through, how hurt they are by their thoughtless actions. Cheryl's arguments are straightforward. The love stories at the end of the book, are particularly good as they reflect on different God written love stories. Her account is painful at times, it did bring me to tears on occasion and I highly recommend this book. The audio version, is fantastic.
Shawna brings it to life. You can tell, she loved reading it.
When Cheryl thinks this is the one and all the signs point to it, and he dumps her. It made me cry. I did have tears at many moments. When she says she walks down the aisle with her dad.
This book should be marketed for men and women.
Dear Cheryl Mckay Price,
Thank you so much for writing an extremely beautiful and honest book. I found myself crying, laughing and rejoicing with you at the end when you got "your finally"! God is wonderful and I pray and hope He does writes a beautiful story for me like He did for you.
God bless you and Chris!
I really really could not stop playing this audible it was very enlightening very hopeful and I have read many books on this subject but nothing compares to this book I am definitely going to tell other people about it is in the same position that I am
It blessed me tremendously...thank you for being obedient to share your testimony with us. I enjoyed the collaboration between you too. It was beautiful!!!
Such a God given book. Such great words that God needed me and I'm sure every still single women needs to read.
I think this is one the most honest books I have heard on the topic of singleness. I could relate to so many things that were said. At some points of the story the topic got underneath my skin but I guess that means I really needed to hear it. Overall great story, like the novel it teaches single women that God is our first husband. I like that its not fluffed with a lot of religious cliches but I has an honest account and uses the word of God to support.
