Book Review: The Cinderella Rule by Bethany Jett

The Cinderella Rule by Bethany JettI finished reading The Cinderella Rule last night. It’s the first Christian book on dating I’ve read (which is to say, first book on dating, period), and I am so glad I started with this one! That doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s better than other Christian dating books–because apparently I have no experience there–but I can vouch for the fact that it is an incredible book and I would recommend it to any girl who is single or dating.

The main focus of the book is announced on the back cover: Stop looking for Prince Charming. Let him look for you! The book focuses on, rather than chasing guys, allowing yourself to be pursued by a worthy, Godly man. As you delve into its fourteen chapters, you’ll find Godly advice and wisdom on things such as preparing your heart for a relationship, attire (aka modesty), boundaries in a relationship, and–fittingly the last chapter–engagement.

I loved the book as a whole, and I loved many individual things about it–too many to list (but here’s a few anyway)! One of the things I enjoyed was Bethany Jett‘s writing style. Her open, honest, and funny writing immediately put me at ease and made me want to finish the book in one sitting. (If I had had the time, I undoubtedly would have finished it within a few hours!). I also loved how she filled the book with her own experiences and those of her friends. It immediately made me feel connected to her. I appreciated the examples of what it means to be a Christian in a relationship, and I couldn’t help but laugh when I realized that I’m not the only girl who gets a little silly around guys. πŸ™‚

My absolute favorite thing was how she talked about her relationship with Jesus. It gave me a desire to grow even closer to Him, and in doing so prepare myself to meet my future husband. When I meet him, I want him to find a woman that’s totally focused and in love with Jesus! (In other words, I do believe the book has done its job.)

If it sounds like this book could have application in your life, get a copy and read it! I’m sure you’ll love it as much as I did. But as a girl who has had absolutely no experience in dating (which, mind you, isn’t a complaint), you might get something different out of it than I did; I’d love to hear what! So if you’ve read this book, please let me know what you think!

God bless,
