Charming

Before You Meet Prince Charming by Sarah Mally

This book was wonderful. Absolutely wonderful.

Girls, you need to read this book. It’s half-fiction, half-nonfiction. The story is wonderful, and Sarah Mally writes the advice in between the sections like she’s your older sister sharing her own experiences with you. It’s definitely a must-read, especially for girls who are boy-crazy or find themselves thinking about guys and dating a lot. Here are some of my favorite quotes (the ones in italics are from the fiction parts):

  • I have known many young ladies who were consumed with dating and thoughts about boyfriends, and thus wasted the years of their youth.
  • If you truly desire to guard your heart, then it should be obvious to you that you ought to avoid any influences that distract your thoughts or stir up wrong desires.
  • A heart that is truly guarded must have no vacancies – no empty spaces that need to be filled, no voids that leave open places and room for the enemy to get in.
  • “Be ye on important business?” asked the alligator. “Be ye the castle receptionist?” returned the knight.
  • … I want to remind you that our primary motivation for caution and wisdom is not to avoid pain.

I hope everyone will enjoy reading this book! Read it! 🙂
