Bower Books–The Person I Marry - TOS review

Product:  The Person I marry

Company:  Bower Books

Price:  $11.99 for hardback version

Before being asked to review the book The Person I Marry, I had never heard of the company Bower Books.    The book is written by husband and wife Gary and Jan Bower. 

I received an ebook version of the book.   I have to admit I didn’t like reading it this way.  I thought the pictures were beautiful and I love to hold a book in my hands.  The cost is $11.99 for the 32 page hardback version of the book.   All of the illustrations are paintings by Jan.  She uses her children and grandchildren as models for the beautiful children in her books.  She is so very talented.  I think you will love the pictures as much as we did.


My husband and I have been talking a lot lately about courting for our children instead of allowing them to date.  We feel like God is definitely leading us in this direction.   I feel like this book fits in with that concept well.  We pray for the future spouses of our children daily.  We long for them to find Godly people to spend their lives with.

The Person I Marry is a beautifully written story about how you should pick the person you will spend the rest of your life with by their inside and not their outside.  That is such an important message that I think every child, teenager and adult should hear.   It discusses the important things to look for in a spouse in a manner that is very appropriate for children. 

I think this would make a great Christmas gift for children or shower gift for a bride to be.

The Person I Marry won the 2010 Book of the Year from the Christian Small Publisher Association and it definitely has our vote for an amazing book.  We’ll be buying this for Christmas for Bella.

The Bower’s have written other books as well as this one and you can view those on their website.
