Love Defined: Embracing God’s Vision for Lasting Love and Satisfying Relationships is a book written by sisters Kristen Clark and Bethany Baird that encourages young women to seek Christ-filled and Christ-fueled relationships. Like their previous book, Girl Defined, this new book provides life advice through a Biblical lens; the authors possess an admirable passion for helping others draw closer to Christ.
Clark is married and Baird is single, so each woman gives a unique perspective on love, dating, and marriage. I enjoyed reading each woman’s personal stories and seeing their take on how to live well and love well. The study guides incorporated into each chapter of the book serve as a good way to reflect on the material. Mothers and daughters who read this book together may want to discuss the authors’ views and advice, and examine how it compares and contrasts to their own family’s approach to dating and marriage.
