The One: An Amazing Love Story Starts with You by Ryan and Amanda Leak Book Review

In The One, Ryan and Amanda Leak shared how they met and how they fell in love. They decided to get engaged and married on the same day. Amanda revealed to one of her best friends that she would love to get engaged and married on the same day. So Ryan was determined to make her dream come true. It took a lot of planning and making sure Amanda had no idea what Ryan was really up to. This book is written to encourage single people and married people to not settle than less than God’s best and to wait on His timing. They both encouraged single people to work on themselves and make sure they are whole and take time to heal from our past wounds. They also recommended to not living our life waiting for our special someone to enter our lives. We need to be actively living our lives without them and living a life to the fullest. Life doesn’t begin when we meet them. 

I would recommend this amazing dating and marriage book to anyone who is ready for a deeper marriage. I especially liked how open Ryan and Amanda Leak was and how they took turns conveying the message that was on their hearts to encourage their readers. I’m currently single and this book helped to reinforce the importance of making sure I’m whole and healed from my past before trying to merge with another person. I don’t want the past to contaminate my future wife. I loved their story and how extremely high Ryan set the bar for all guys. Most people won’t necessary get engaged and married within the same day. This book is an excellent read for single and married folks and I believe it will help strengthen and help build your marriage.
