Love Defined

Love Defined
By Kristen Clark and Bethany Baird
Publisher: Baker Books
Release Date: 05/01/18

Clark and Baird, sisters and cofounders of GirlDefined Ministries, have both received training through the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors and it shows on every page of this insightful, biblically robust book. They offer women of all ages a primer on discarding the culture’s unbiblical messages on love, sex, and marriage in favor of God’s blueprint for lasting love.

Clark, now married, gives keen insights into what to focus on as a single woman desiring to be married. Baird, single, offers readers a wise perspective on living life to its fullest. Their chapter-by-chapter real-life scenarios, biblical principles for relationship building (and maintaining), and study guide set a strong foundation.

One of the most helpful add-ons is found in Appendix II where the authors provide 50 questions to ask early in a romantic relationship.

This resource will provide solid biblical counsel and an emotionally satisfying boost for women seeking God’s best for marriage in a society that has marginalized the union designed by God.
