Now I'm giving away Serenity to Accept by Elizabeth Maddrey

About the book:

Karin Reid has never had much use for God. There's been too much pain in her life for her to accept that God is anything other than, at best, disinterested or, at worst, sadistic. Until she meets Jason Garcia.

After his own mistakes of the past, Jason is committed to dating only Christians. He decides to bend his rule for Karin, as long as she comes to church with him.

As their friendship grows, both will have to decide if they'll accept the path God has for them, even if it means losing each other.

And now for the question... 

As a Christian, have you ever dated a non-believer? Was it as difficult as you thought it would be? 

I'll answer first. Yes, and it was very hard to stay strong in my faith (at the time.) Plus, the relationships never lasted.

A very long time ago I dated a few nonChristian boys. The differences were too many. One of them even proposed to me. But God pointed out that it would not be a good thing. He showed me what my life would be like so I broke it off.

Yes, I dated non Christian guys. They never lasted long and the relationship always seemed "sad".

Karen - I'm so glad you were listening for God's direction when you were dating and willing to hear what He said.

Boos Mum - I think it can be hard when you don't agree on something major (even if it's not as major as Christianity) - and can end up feeling sad.

Thanks for dropping by!

No, I've never dated a non-believer. I grew up in the church and so I always dated someone with the same faith as myself.

Yes and it was difficult

Good for you, Judy! I grew up in the church but wasn't always as careful as I should have been.

Thanks for dropping by, Deb!

Sonja said...

Yes, I have and it didn't work at all. I know what I believe and I want to stick by it!

Elizabeth Maddrey said...

That's the absolute best approach, Sonja!
