Blog tour: ‘Choosing Your Eternal Companion’by Robert K. McIntosh

On Sept 25, 1995, at a General Relief Society Meeting, Pres. Gordon B. Hinckley representing 15 prophets, seers and revelators, read “The Family: A Proclamation to the World.” This Proclamation was given as a warning that the disintegration of the family would bring upon the world the calamities foretold by the prophets. “Choosing Your Eternal Companion” applies the doctrines and principles in this Proclamation to those who are dating and to those preparing for marriage. It is a practical guide to assist those who are single to become the right one as well as to know if they have found the right one.

My review: Choosing Your Eternal Companion by Robert K. McIntosh


I think this is a good book for teens and up. It takes the Family proclamation and discuss it to help you set priorities,
This book does speak in a plain, simple way how to prepare you to be a wife, mother, husband and father. What and how to look for a companion. Talks about what to be aware of like a couple that is intimate before marriage might be more tempted after marriage to break the vows of marriage.

I admit I called up my girls and shared different parts of the book with them. One thing I shared with my shy daughter was to make friends with lots of men so she can figure out what works for her. I want her to at least talk with one or two first.
One suggestion to one boy who asked about talking to girls. He was told to make a list of questions of things to ask a girl than memorize it. He did and after a few tries was easier to talk to girls and get to know them.

My other daughter I called up to read her on subject is don't be pushed into marriage and don't put off marriage for school, saving up for it or finding a better job.

It talks about some issues like abortion, family planning, education, chastity, and hard work at marriage. Definitely using Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints standards and beliefs. Backed up by scriptures, Prophets and women leaders of the church.

It also reminded me of things I need to do. It gives good advice for after marriage, that it is just a start. Marriage should be worked on. Like weekly dating of spouse, be less selfish, work together as a family.

I am glad I have read Choosing Your Eternal Companion. I was given this ebook to read for purpose of giving honest review and be part of it's blog tour. Received the book from Cedar Fort Publishing.
