A Time To Cherish

Sunday, August 8, 2010
I don't take it lightly. I've been praying ever since that night we met up. The only thing that gives me hope is that God said there is time for everything. This is a time to make major choices and to stick close.

Book: A Time To Cherish by Robin Jones Gunn, Focus on the Family Publishing, 1993
A Time to Cherish (The Christy Miller Series #10)A Time to Cherish/Sweet Dreams/A Promise is Forever (The Christy Miller Series 10-12) (Christy Miller Collection, Volume 4)
Genre: Realistic Fiction
Target Audience: Girls 15-19
Subjects: Dating relationships, relationships with Non-Christians
Summary: "I want to be your boyfriend". With those words from Todd, Christy saw two years of hopes being fulfilled. Todd cherishes her and his relationship with her. Everything should be great. She should be on top of the world. But Katie just entered into a relationship with someone who does not share her beliefs and is mad at Christy and not only abandoning their friendship, but also changing into someone entirely different. Christy is scared for her, hurting for her and unsure of how to respond.
Notes: This book deals with a hard issue that many teens will face - the desire to date someone who is not a Christian. Katie makes all the standard arguments about why it shouldn't be a problem, but Christy still believes it's not wise - strongly believes. How can she continue to love Katie, be friends, when something so huge has come between them? It also shows how a teen girl might go about a dating relationship in a manner glorifying to God.
