Bower Books ~ TOS Review
The teen years, dating, courting, marriage all words that strike fear into a mother’s heart. Alright maybe not all mothers but certainly mine. I have a teenage boy and while my husband and I wish for him to keep his relationships godly and court, he has other family that do not follow the Lord, so I know our influence only goes so far. My son has expressed interest in girls recently so I was so thrilled when we got a copy of The Person I Marry from Bower Family Books.
A beautiful book written by Gary Bower and illustrated by his wife Jan, children of all ages will enjoy it’s timeless ideas and thoughts on what they want from a future spouse. At 32 pages with a hardbound cover it is a book to last a lifetime, from the little children dreaming of their future to the teenager planning their life with that someone special. It is a great place to start many heart to heart conversations about the things we should be seeking in a mate and the type of mate we should be. I wish we had this book years ago as it is a tremendous help in approaching a subject that is sometimes confusing to say the least. My oldest read it and said he liked it and thought it was very cute. He especially liked the worksheet for “Things to look for” at the back saying he would go back to that throughout his life.
We reviewed a digital format of this book and I am definitely planning on purchasing it in the available hard bound edition. I have younger children that I am anticipating reading this book with for many years to come. I might even have to buy it as a gift since my sister is getting married next year and it would make such a lovely gift.
The Person I Marry retails for $11.49 currently and is available at:
