This morning I looked on my dining room table and what do I see? A package containing the first book of the Christy & Todd: The Married Years series. *squeal* I was soooooo incredibly excited!!! I adore this series and as one who has read the entire Christy Miller series multiple times, I can assure you these books are amazing!

Now, on to the review! 🙂
*Warning – Spoilers Ahead*
This book does not disappoint! As an avid reader of this series, I was pleased to find it lived up to my expectations.
It starts out with Todd and Christy Spencer married and living in an apartment. Todd is currently a youth pastor and truly loves the teens he works with. On the other hand, Christy is employed at The Ark – a bookstore.
This book is mostly about the struggles Christy and Todd are going through in their life right now – mostly financially. It shows the times when they struggle understanding why God allowed Christy to be laid off, and why Todd resigned and can’t seem to find a job. Yet, it always comes back to the conclusion that God knows best and they are in His hands even though they might not understand their circumstances or why they are being tested.
When I completed reading Forever With You, I was left desiring more, which in my opinion, is always a good thing.
I encourage all of you to go and if you haven’t yet, pick up the first book in the Christy Miller series. If, like me, you have already read those, go ahead and order your copy of Forever With You today! You won’t regret it!
