The Person I Marry- Bower Books Review

The Person I Marry is a beautiful 32 page hardcover book from the Bright Future Series by Bower Books. Gary and Jan Bower are a husband and wife team that write (Gary) and illustrate (Jan) books for families.  I am impressed with the beauty of these books.  I was given a digital copy of The Person I Marry for the purpose of this review but I intend to purchase some (maybe all) of the books they have on their website. They are wholesome, godly and just plain beautiful.

From the website:

"Long before thinking of diamonds & glitter, here are some things that I need to consider."

The things that make up a person's outside are shallow, but deeper qualities like kindness, honesty, faithfulness, thoughtfulness, respect are what help build strong relationships. Written in poetry by award-winning author Gary Bower, and featuring the breathtaking oil paintings of award-winning artist Jan Bower, The Person I Marry is an adorable, yet profound, book that will penetrate hearts of men and women, boys and girls. Loved by young children, teens, engaged couples, and seasoned married people.

The oil paintings in this book are so sweet and the rhyming text is fun to listen to but packed with wisdom at the same time.  In the background of each page (behind the text) various character traits to look for in a mate are sprinkled throughout the book.  There is so much to look at on each page but in a visually appealing way.

Here is a sample:

Go to the illustration page of the Bower Books website to see more of the beautiful art.
