“I Said Yes” by Emily Maynard Johnson Book Review

I sure do love reading books and last year I promise that I didn’t get to read as much as I wanted to due to school, teaching and my health. But thank goodness this year seems be going just a little better than expected. I was lucky enough to read a wonderful book about love, loss and redemption. I read “I Said Yes” by Emily Maynard Johnson who was on both The Bachelor and The Bachelorette.

Emily’s book shows us all about how even though we may look for love in all the wrong places, the first place to look to is God. He is the one who will show you the true meaning of love and show you and guide you through the process. Emily in the past was engaged to Nascar Driver, Ricky Hendrick and he was soon gone too soon. She found out just after the tragic accident that she was expecting and realized that he would live on forever with their child. Being a single mom to a beautiful daughter, Ricki, Emily wanted to find someone who would share her life with and her daughter’s. I honestly never watched The Bachelorette but I have watched the Bachelor before and loved it. This is a book that I don’t want to give away too much of the book but I will say that you should definitely go out and get it and read it or see if your local library has it. It made me realize that yes I found the man that I am going to spend the rest of my life in and if only I had this book when I was looking. Would have made me turn back to God a lot sooner! You can get this book online via or find at any local book store.


I did receive this book from BookLooker in exchange for my honest review. I was not compensated monetarily and all my opinions are 100% my own!
