Couple By Christmas Book Review
“Coupled By Christmas” is a beautiful story of love, faith and reconciliation. I always love reading books by this great author, Pat Simmons because she always let God guide the pen to created wonderful stories with well developed characters to minister to the readers through the story. Her stories is always inspirational with the purpose to make the narrative God-Centered. Even though “Coupled By Christmas” is a fiction book and also very entertaining still there’s everlastingly a message of The redeeming work of Christ. Pat Simmons acquire the tasks from the Holy Spirit by created a beautiful Christmas story about healing and reconciliation. I enjoyed the Characters of Derek and Robyn’s Washington because even though they were divorced but they made the decisions to be co- parents to their son Tyler. Tyler Washington had made me laugh so hard. He loved both of his parents unconditional and smart for his age. Nothing get past him. Derek and Robyn’s still was on their journey to let go of their past hurt and anger so they can allow God to do his wonder working power. Both Derek and Robyn’s mothers preach the words to them that they didn’t give their marriages a chance to last. They both were stubborn that they missed each others and still in love with each other. I found “Coupled By Christmas” is an uplifting Christmas story not only about romance but it was about the birth of baby Jesus Christ. This uplifting story is also about the sacred of Marriage. Derek mentioned that Marriages doesn’t have to fail if husbands and wives have God on their side. Both Robyn and Derek admitted that they walk away from their blessings of marriage but the devil is a liar. The devil tried to break up their marriage. Just like them, we as Christians must protect the blessings of our marriages ordained by God. God can restore the marriage if you allow God to restores your heart, mind and soul. Derek and Robyn were willing to make God the center for a testimony that marriages between a man and a woman to succeed. They were willing to let the void out of that dark celebration with a joyful celebration by getting remarried on the anniversary of their divorce. Robyn and Derek allows themselves to use the power of forgiveness and letting go of their past hurts. I believe that they actually shown growth not only in their faith in God but also in their marriages. Through their experiences, they were able to minister to other couples who are dealing with havoc in their marriages. If you are looking for a great Christmas story based on Scriptures, healing, restoration and the main focus about the birth of Jesus Christ.
