The Chase {A Must Read!}

 "A must read for single girls looking for a God honoring relationship!" -Rebecca St. James

As soon as I heard that Kyle & Kelsey were writing a book, I knew I couldn't wait to read it. When I found out that it was on relationships & Kyle and Kelsey's love story, I couldn't have been more excited! It was so perfect for exactly where I was at in life right now! Recently Kyle and Kelsey posted on social media about how they were looking for a "street team" of people to read and review their new book, The Chase. I'll be honest with y'all- I almost didn't apply. I assumed a lot of people would be applying, but in the end, I did send in an application. My freshman year of college started shortly after that, and I prayed about the book and the street team. Lord, I feel like this book could have a huge impact on me. If you want me to be a part of this, then let it be. Whatever is your will, I trust you. I got caught up in the whirlwind of life, and almost forgot about the book, and then a few days ago, while I was at work, I received a text from my Mom. "Did you win something? You received a package from a Kyle and Kelsey Kupecky." There was no keeping the smile off my face that day!

From start to finish I read The Chase in less than a day. Once I started, I simply could not put it down. It sucked me in and captivated me. I cried several times, smiled a lot, and was filled with so much joy. I finished it while riding the bus home from campus, and when I looked up, it was like everything had changed for me. I couldn't keep the smile off my face, or the joy from overflowing in my heart.

It touched my heart, because I related to Kelsey on so many levels. I've never had a boyfriend, and like Kelsey, I've definitely wondered if I've set my standards too high, or if there are any Prince Charming's left in the world. When I was reading The Chase, I felt like I was reading a story about myself. Like Kelsey, my growing up years were filled with moments of happiness, but lonely moments as well, because I didn't always have lots of friends, or get invited to everything. Also, like Kelsey, I made "The List" years ago, and yes, I felt a little silly about it, but it meant so much to me. I started writing my future husband letters five years ago, and I pray for him every single day. Yes, every single day! I don't find it ridiculous, because I believe in the power of prayer. I'm not sitting around, praying that God will give me a guy. No, I'm praying for the future- that he will give my guy strength to overcome obstacles, peace in the chaos of life, and protect his heart.

I'm telling y'all, this book is a MUST READ!! If you're a single, Christian girl, or even if you're in a relationship, this book will change your life. I absolutely love Kyle & Kelsey, and when I was reading The Chase, I felt like I was sitting at The Frothy Monkey in Franklin, TN, having this conversation with them over cups of coffee.

"When we take our eyes off our own lives, and focus on others, we become the prettiest versions of ourselves." -The Chase
