A book a day...keeps insanity away! I am an avid book reader. When I am not reading, I love to play the piano, sing, or shop until I drop! Reading has been a huge part of my life since I was young and my Mom introduced me to the public library! Since then I have not stopped reading! I hope you enjoy my reviews!
Love is a Choice by Lynn G. Robbins, LDS Blog Tour
We all know that actions speak louder than words. We may say “I love you,” but do our actions back up that claim? Elder Lynn G. Robbins teaches us that love is more than a feeling — it is a commitment, a promise to be responsible, respectful, and responsive to the needs and experiences of other. And like any other action we undertake, perfecting the act of love requires a lifetime of practice and good choices.
As Elder Robbins teaches, the daily choices we make in our marriages and families are what shape lasting love. He helps us to recognize the role that our agency plays in developing forgiveness, patience, kindness, responsibility, and other virtuous traits. We come to see that as we actively try to do things differently, Christ helps us to be the people He wants us to be — people like Him.
Whether you're engaged to be married, a newlywed, or someone with decades of marriage under your belt, this counsel from an inspired leader will help you develop more Christlike love for those around you. As you draw closer to the Savior through your daily choices and actions, His love will fill your home.
I think this is a really great book to read before you get married, but is also a great book for anyone in a relationship to read. Who knew love could be so complicated? But ultimately love is not only a choice, but it is a verb, an action word. When we choose to act with kindness, charity and true love, our relationship with our spouse will grow stronger and we will become closer. I really like the format of the book, there are nice charts and sections are labeled for easy reference, especially if you are looking for a specific part. Anyone who loves somebody can benefit from reading Love is a Choice!
