I was so happy to review the book Messy Beautiful Love by Darlene Schacht. This book is all about hope and redemption for real life marriages. In this book Darlene is extremely transparent about the grace that was shown in her marriage at a difficult cross roads. It was then that I realized how much I would truly relate to the sharing in this book, it hit close to home. I love the real life sharing from Darlene's heart. Marriage is truly not easy. I will say some marriages may be much harder than others. Mine has not been so easy in years past for many reasons but after reading her story I do not feel alone. I found renewed hope and know we are now on the right track to discovering Gods best in this relationship. No person is perfect. Grace is the key to making a union last not butterflies in your tummy. Married life is simply not easy but when you surrender your relationship to god you let go of control over it and give it to God for his guidance. Will be blessed for it because of your obedience. Darlene beautifully gave advice as if from a best friend in real understandable tangible ways. This book will remain in my permanent collection that I will refer back to for encouragement again & again. When in the mist of a relationship & those some times messy times do come this book will enlighten you with Godly lady like wisdom to embrace the messy and coat it with grace, love & a servants heart to obey God. When you obey God's plan for relationships you will be blessed. Thank you Darlene.
