    I always think of the prophets at being perfect and I loved reading about how some of the modern day prophets fell in love I love a good romance and I got several with this book.There were some stories where the couple fell in love quickly and others were it took years and years to finally get married I m glad we each receive our own revelation because there was one story when I think I would have given up YEARS earlier and this man was persistent and in tune enough to wait it out for way too I always think of the prophets at being perfect and I loved reading about how some of the modern day prophets fell in love I love a good romance and I got several with this book.There were some stories where the couple fell in love quickly and others were it took years and years to finally get married I m glad we each receive our own revelation because there was one story when I think I would have given up YEARS earlier and this man was persistent and in tune enough to wait it out for way too long I was also pleasantly surprised to discover that my husband s great uncle was the man who married one of the prophets I did enjoy this sweet book and it was perfect for Valentine s Day

    This book should be required reading for any BYU student Also, I recommended it not because of the writing which was painful to read at times, and needed additional editing both for prose and grammar but because of the content The authors put in some work to compile these stories from various sources and original documents.I think any LDS young people in the courting stage of life would benefit from reading this book because, holy cow, these are not picture perfect courtships A surprising This book should be required reading for any BYU student Also, I recommended it not because of the writing which was painful to read at times, and needed additional editing both for prose and grammar but because of the content The authors put in some work to compile these stories from various sources and original documents.I think any LDS young people in the courting stage of life would benefit from reading this book because, holy cow, these are not picture perfect courtships A surprising number of modern day prophets had courtships that were frustrating, confusing, demoralizing, and occasionally depressing A few were nice and simple, but for the most part, they seemed to struggle on both sides with the same spiritual and emotional uncertainties that I feel like most sensible people are weighted with when trying to make that ETERNALLY significant decision of whom to marry A few of them were truly shocking in how long they stuck with what I would have considered to be a doomed courtship So, I think it would give dating age people some hope that things needn t progress perfectly in order to end up with a happy marriage I also recommend reading this to anyone else because it s pretty interesting and a quick read

    This book was so fun I learned so much about the prophets and their wives It was interesting to read about how they were at a young age Great people, but not yet the figures as we know them There were several dating situations that reminded me of my own life Their stories aren t perfect, but I think that s what I really enjoyed They re real.I will admit that there were a few places that the writing seemed a bit redundant, but other than that the quality was pretty good.I d recommend to a f This book was so fun I learned so much about the prophets and their wives It was interesting to read about how they were at a young age Great people, but not yet the figures as we know them There were several dating situations that reminded me of my own life Their stories aren t perfect, but I think that s what I really enjoyed They re real.I will admit that there were a few places that the writing seemed a bit redundant, but other than that the quality was pretty good.I d recommend to a friend A cute and easy read

    So often, with the prophets of the church, I feel as though I picture their lives being perfect However, you learn while reading these stories that they weren t, and many of their courtships were not perfect Several of the stories I also never heard before, so I enjoyed learningabout our leaders.

    I really enjoyed hearing the love and courtship stories of the latter day prophets The stories were not all the same some were very sweet, almost sappy, and others almost tried my patience and gave meempathy The book is well researched but is written in a style that reminds me of hearing stories from my grandmother of days gone by Enjoyable read
