Book Review: Cheers to Eternity (+ My 11 Favorite Quotes)

DesignKensie SmithComment

Remember when I read More than the Tattooed Mormon and created a million (okay, like 20) quote images because I loved so many parts? Well, Al just came out with a new book—one she wrote with her husband, Ben. Cheers to Eternity is all about the lessons Ben and Al have learned so far about creating a successful eternal marriage. 

Obviously I'm not married yet, but I still enjoyed reading it and gained several new insights. I'll be honest, there were parts that were really hard for me to read because I long for that kind of relationship. 

If you've read The Magnolia Story, you'll recognize the conversational tone that jumps between Ben and Al as they share their best advice. They talk a lot about the role that God plays in their marriage and I especially loved this part:

"Stop living in the future, and enjoy today. Search for and learn to find joy in your trials, because surely there will be many. Love who you are and where you are. And never let a change of course take you away from the unchangeable truth that God is taking care of you. You may not have gone where you had in mind, but you will end up where you need to be, and will receive better blessings."

This book is.a quick read (it took me about an hour) and I think everyone who reads it is bound to learn something that will help them in any relationship—with friends, with significant others, and with God.

Book Review: More than the Tattooed Mormon (+ 20 Quotes to Share)

You know those incredibly happy people who you just can't get enough of? Yep. That's Al. We've never met, but after reading her new book, More Than the Tattooed Mormon, I honestly feel like her friend. Al has the most positive attitude and it rubs off on everyone around her. Her book is just so genuine and honest. Even though it is her story, this book is for you and me. I promise you this book will leave you feeling uplifted, loved, and motivated to do incredible things. This book is a super quick read (I read it in less than a day), but it is so good. I was highlighting like it was my job. I love Al's honesty throughout the whole book, especially when she relayed her conversion story, but most of all, I loved reading about her determination to do whatever God asked of her.

There were so many parts I loved and so I decided to letter some of my favorite quotes to hang up. You can view the gallery below and save each image because I know you are going to appreciate Al's words as much as me.
