Praying for Your Future Husband: Preparing Your Heart for His (Paperback)
"Have you ever thought about praying for your future husband?"
"Will it make a difference?"
"There's only one way to find out..."
From when we were small girls, most of us dream of "The One," our future husband. We think about what it would be like to be a bride. We wonder who that special guy is and when we'll find him. The great news is that what you do "now "can make a difference in your life and the life of your future husband
Authors and good friends Robin Jones Gunn (Christy Miller series) and Tricia Goyer (author and former teen mom) believe God answers women's prayers for husbands--even husbands they may not meet for years. They invite young women to pray boldly for their future mate ... while also asking God to prepare their own hearts.
In "Praying for Your Future Husband," Robin and Tricia share their two vastly different experiences, including the things they did right and the mistakes they made on the path to meeting and marrying their husbands. Each chapter includes helpful Bible verses, prayers, and practical application, along with true stories of women who prayed for a husband and how God answered in remarkable ways.
God has a beautiful romance prepared for you. Prayer is the key to unlocking the love story ... with your future husband and with God, the lover of your soul.
About the Author
Robin Jones Gunn has a passion for communicating God's love to young hearts. She began writing story books for toddlers when her children were little. Her husband, Ross, has been a youth minister for over twenty years. While on a camping trip with teens from their youth group, Robin found some of the girls hiding away in their tent reading a stack of novels they'd brought with them from the library.
Curious as to what could keep these girls away from the sun, surf and guys, Robin borrowed three of their books. As she read them, her heart broke. They were not the kinds of stories these girls should be reading! After the camping trip Robin went to her Bible bookstore and bought every book she could find that she thought would be interesting for the girls and have a good influence on them. The teens read all the books in a week and asked for more. "There aren't any more," Robin told them. "That was all I could find." The teens challenged Robin by saying, "Then you write some for us. We'll even tell you what to write!"
She has now written over 50 books, including THE CHRISTY MILLER SERIES, which has sold more than one million copies. A storyteller at heart, she is also a popular speaker and an active youth worker. Robin lives with her family in Hawaii.

Whether you are looking for inspiration, encouragement, or even proof that prayer works, this book is for you. The perfect blend of real-life stories and a how-to manual, Praying for Your Future Husband will be an ideal companion from now until the altar.”
—Shannon Primicerio, author of The Divine Dance, God Called a Girl, and the TrueLife Bible Studies series
“When I was twelve years old, my husband began praying for me. I did not know that, of course, because I did not yet know him or God. But later, looking back, I saw how those prayers had miraculously affected my life. Gunn and Goyer are practical, vulnerable, inspirational, and encouraging. I can think of few better gifts for a young lady to offer her future husband than the gift of her prayers, and this book shows how to do it.”
