Finally And Forever

Tuesday, August 21, 2012
Jumping on a plane and flying off to Africa with Eli seemed to make sense in the middle of the night when her friends, Todd and Christy, helped her to book her flight and encouraged her to make the wild leap into the unknown. Now it seemed crazy. All of it.

Book:Finally and Forever (Katie Weldon Series)by Robin Jones Gunn, Zondervan Publishers, 2012

Genre: Realistic Fiction
Target Audience: Girls 18-25
Subjects: Missions, Dating Relationships, Family Relationships, God’s Will
Summary: Katie is in Africa! With Eli! She’s fairly convinced that she must be crazy, but something in her keeps saying this is right. After meeting his family and getting settled into the mission, she and Eli both begin pursing their future plans. What does God have for them? What, specifically, are they supposed to be doing? When an old boyfriend from Katie’s past shows up, answers begin appearing, but not in the way either of them expected.
Notes: The story of Katie is complete! In 1989 we were introduced to Katie Weldon, friend of Christy Miller. Now, after 23 years her story has been finished. Well, at least finished as in her romance has been resolved and her career path has been chosen. She is now through with college, making this book ideal for older teens and early 20’s who will be able to relate to Katie’s struggles to figure out what to do with her life. Through the years and many books, Katie has wrestled with what God wants her to do. She’s pursued a number of things, and had extremely serious relationships with two different guys. She’s learned to let God lead her heart, and that leading has placed her in Africa with the guy who’s been making strange comments throughout the Katie Weldon series. This story really continues the theme of trusting God to lead you and being willing to follow His leading, no matter how strange it may seem. Both the main characters in this story are wrestling with that. They’ve come to the point in their relationships with God where they desire His will, but figuring out what that is and how or even if, that works out for a relationship with one another, is quite a challenge.
