Synopsis (from Amazon):
Popular YouTubers Cole and Savannah LaBrant share their inspiring love story, highlighting the redemptive, surprising nature of God at work in our lives, and how He graciously steps in and turns our messes into something beautiful.
Millions around the world followed the fairytale love story of viral YouTube stars Cole and Savannah LaBrant and watched as they said “I do.” Their subsequent YouTube channel, dedicated to family and faith, garners more than 100 million views each month. But now for the first time ever, Cole and Sav invite you beyond the highlight reel and into the beautiful and messy, funny and tender story of how God brought two unlikely people together in a surprising, unexpected way.
With their signature charming and engaging style, Cole and Sav take you behind the camera and open up about past heartaches and mistakes; painful secrets and difficult expectations; the joys and challenges of raising their daughter, Everleigh; and the spiritual journey that changed their hearts—and relationship—forever.
I like Hallmark movies–I think they are cute and fun and just entertaining. However, what I do not like about them is the false idea they give people about love. They make it seem like a breeze and that one day you will just randomely meet your soul mate–and know right away that he/she is the one. While, this is possible, and may happen occasionally, for the most part this is not the case. These seemingly “perfect” love stories are not really perfect at all and make the viewer expect to have a love story like that.
All that being said, Cole and Sav proved that love stories are not always perfect in our eyes–but they are perfect in God’s. While every person will not have the same love story, all love stories are unique. Cole and Savannah Lebrant proved this. It was so nice to read a real love story–one that actually happened–and learn from their experience. I thorougly enjoyed their story and was inspired. Savannah came from a broken past, and thought she would never find real love, but God proved her wrong when he brought Cole into her life. They started a long-distance friendship that blossomed into romance, then marriage, and later another daughter. Their love story was so beautiful–not because it was perfect; it wasn’t–but because it proved that no matter what your past looks like, God has an even brighter future. I have watched their YouTube videos before, so it was nice to read about the history behind them. I loved how their book showed that they were not perfect, but they did not care because their one goal was to follow and love God. I loved how Cole and Savannah kept their relationship pure and saved intimacy for marriage. I loved how they each shared their struggles in staying pure until their wedding day, as well as the struggles they each faced in every day life. I loved how their love story had ups and downs; but most of all I love how God brought it together in the end. This book was even better than a Hallmark movie because it was real. It was beautiful. It was inspiring and encouraging. I absolutely loved it!
