Beyond I Do
BEYOND I DO
Marriage . . . it’s more than a happily ever after. Eternally more.
Ainsley Meadows, raised by a hedonist mother, who cycles through jobs and relationships like wrapping paper on Christmas morning, falls into a predictable and safe relationship with Richard, a self-absorbed socialite psychiatrist. But as her wedding nears, a battered woman and her child spark a long-forgotten dream and ignites a hidden passion. One that threatens to change everything, including her fiancé. To embrace God’s best and find true love, this security-seeking bride must follow God with reckless abandon and realize that marriage goes Beyond I Do.
Authentic characters with messy lives struggle to find their way with varying success. Told through multiple viewpoints, Slatterly clearly shows how our lives become the sum total of our experiences. But it is our choices that ultimately bring us victory...or crushing defeat.
Ainsley has had a difficult upbringing and it colours the way she interacts with people. She tries to blend in, stay safe. In fact safety and predictability become her top priorities and it colours her view of the future. She finds herself heading in a direction she had no intention of going. It takes some divine intervention to help her get back on track.
A solid inspirational theme testifies to the power of faith and the changes it can make in your life.
