Review: Love is a Flame

Love Is A Flame: Stories of What Happens When Love Is Rekindled

by James Stuart Bell Forwarded by Gary Chapman

Real People. Real Stories. Real Love.

Happily ever after. Does it only happen in fairy tales, or in real life? Over the years love may burn strong and steady, but sometimes it grows cold. However, it can be rekindled–and these stories show how. Be inspired by true accounts of how love was revived and renewed.
You’ll discover that love can grow stronger and burn brighter through the years as you read more than forty stories from everyday people like

    • Jan, whose marriage was restored despite adultery.
    • Marsha, who fought pornography and won.
    • Bryan, who realized his family, not his career, was his most important responsibility.
    • Emily, who learned that real love overcomes unrealistic expectations.
    • Jeff, who went from dissatisfaction and boredom to falling in love all over again.

      The true stories in Love Is a Flame will warm your heart and show you how to create a new spark in your marriage and build it into a glowing flame.                                   — Back Cover

      I *heart* marriage books!!!! This one was different. There are a plethora of stories, more than 40, of marriages that have been restored. I’m sure that anyone that is having issues, serious or not, can find something encouraging within the covers.
      By the time I received this book, I’d stopped reading about other people’s marriage struggles. I didn’t want their thoughts and fault finding to be what I thought and found in my own marriage (because it wasn’t true).
      Yes, the few stories that I did choose to read have happy endings.
      One thing that I did like about each story was the author’s ending paragraph. It was like receiving marching orders, or a “challenge” on making marriage better. Those paragraphs are worth reading alone. That’s what I’d rather choose to spend my time reading.
      Love is a Flame is available from Amazon,, and your local bookstore.
      Until Next Time…Be Abundantly Blessed!
