I wanted to share about my friend Keri's book called Love Isn't Selfish. You can find it on Amazon in paperback and Kindle.
The description of the book as found on Amazon is:
"Because scripture tells us clearly that God is Love (1 John 4:8), we
know that God, by very nature, is relational. Love is an action,
emotion, state, and characteristic that requires interaction with
another being. Love does not exist alone. Scripture also tells us that
we have been created in God’s image (Genesis 1:27). We were created to

22:37-39), we must learn first what Love is- who He is.

much about who God is and who God isn’t. This book examines multiple
relationships we experience and what valuable information we can gather
from those relationships about the character of Love, which is to say,
the character of God. It’s about learning to be unselfish in a selfish
The book will be available for free on Kindle on December 25th!
