Hey all! I’m back with another Coffee table read. This is another Relationship book. Here are some quick facts about Mingling of Souls
- Written by Matt Chandler
- 218 pages with bonus note section
- Based off of the Song of Solomon
- Moderate bible verse break down – a lot of commentaries
- The cover says “God’s Design for love, marriage sex, and redemption”
First off I would like to say, I did not know all of this stuff was in the bible. Once he got to the part on sex I was like “whoa! That’s what I want.”
Matt Chandler approach to this Bible story was beautiful. He illustrated why people should fall for each other and stay together. From the chapters “Attraction” to “I’m not going anywhere”, I developed a clear perspective on why I’m waiting for God’s chosen spouse.
Although the book is over 200 pages, it is worth time to read. Verse by verse, the Song Solomon is broken down and translated in a way that relates to modern times.
Chandler also has a lot of other books that I hope to read in the future. I’m giving this a thumbs up.

It was a Saturday when I had nothing to do. “Welp I guess I’m going to the Christian bookstore.” It was a lot of traffic and a long line when I got there. “Welp, I guess I’m going to be in here for a while.” I spent an hour looking through the entire store. Finally, I went to the women’s section. “Welp I guess I’m a woman.”
The cover of the book is so beautiful and girly. When I flipped through the pages, I realized we had a lot of things in common. The persona of having it all together, the awkward phase growing up, etc. The way she writes is so personal. Holley Gerth really does make you feel like you’re out having coffee with the girls.
Tonight I will dive into the book some more. I will give you an update once I am done. If you have read this book before please let me know. ❤

I applied for a job at a Christian bookstore. “Well let’s go see about my application and find a book.” I left with a journal and “Uncommon” by Carey Scott
Here are key points of the book
- 234 pages with large print
- Paragraphs of personal stories
- Highlights of uncommon women in The Bible (such as Deborah in leadership)
- Bible scriptures with clear explanations
The book focuses on how being a Christian woman is out of the ordinary. Each chapter breaks down different principles. My top 3 chapters were: forgiveness gratitude & hunger for God. She had a perfect blend of biblical notes and her life dealing with her health and family.
Entertaining and informative, it was the first book I dedicated my time to in a while. I recommend this book for all levels of paths with Christ. Uncommon had me feeling more confident to live boldly for Jesus.
