Stephanie Rische was starting to feel invisible. All around her, her friends were getting married, and she found herself decidedly alone. Stephanie couldn’t help but wonder if there was something broken in her―was she not pretty enough? Not fun enough? Not dateable enough (whatever that meant)? So she started praying in earnest for God to bring the right man into her life. And instead, He brought her matchmakers. Eight of them, to be precise.
Beloved blogger Stephanie Rische debuts with this charming, vulnerable, and (who are we kidding?) often mortifying true story of a girl who tried really hard to find someone to fall in love with―even when she mostly just ended up falling flat on her face. But amid the most cringeworthy setups and awkward encounters, Stephanie found God’s grace and love meeting her there in ways she never could have imagined―once she opened her eyes to see.
Stephanie Rische is a senior editor of nonfiction books at Tyndale House Publishers, as well as a freelance writer for various publications, including Today’s Christian Woman, Today’s Christian Living magazine, Marriage Partnership, and her.meneutics. She and her husband, Daniel, live in the Chicago area, where they enjoy riding their bikes, making homemade ice cream, and swapping bad puns. She has several little princesses in her life, including her much-loved nieces. She blogs at stephanierische.com.
Ok let me just say that this book was not what I thought it was going to be it was so much better this was a very beautifully written book. I do love how I was completely in my feelings with this book I felt like I was laugh out loud yet at the same time I wanted to shake her. I love how the lord was there every step of the way to guide her. The lessons learned in this book can be learned by a lot of people. I’m so happy she finally found love in Daniel. I highly recommend this book I really enjoyed every moment of it.
Overall I give I Was Blind (Dating), But Now I See… 5 STARS
