Captivating by John and Stasi Eldredge Review

 

I have always been told to never judge a book by it’s cover. Sometimes it is not easy for me to remember those words. Although, Captivating by John and Stasi Eldredge has a beautiful cover and beautiful words. As quoted from the back of the book “Every woman was once a little girl. And every little girl holds in her heart her most precious dreams. She longs to be swept up into romance, to play an irreplaceable role in a great adventure, to be the beauty of the story.” Those words are so true. As soon as I read the back of the book I knew Captivating was for me! At first it was hard for me to get into this book. I don’t know if it was because I had a lot going on around me or because I was not in the right frame of mind. But, after the first two chapters I could not stop reading it. I spent the next few chapters nodding my head and saying to myself “Yes, I do feel that way as a woman.” It was so amazing how John and Stasi put everything I was thinking and feeling into words. They helped me to better understand why I felt the way I do. The second half of the book I spent crying. There were many parts of this book that hit so close to home and I know that I will have a different outlook on many things from now on. Thank you to Thomas Nelson for providing a copy of this book for my review.
