Millions around the world followed the fairytale love story of viral YouTube stars Cole and Savannah LaBrant and watched as they said “I do.” Their subsequent YouTube channel, dedicated to family and faith, garners more than 100 million views each month. But now for the first time ever, Cole and Sav invite you beyond the highlight reel and into the beautiful and messy, funny and tender story of how God brought two unlikely people together in a surprising, unexpected way. With their signature charming and engaging style, Cole and Sav take you behind the camera and open up about past heartaches and mistakes; painful secrets and difficult expectations; the joys and challenges of raising their daughter, Everleigh; and the spiritual journey that changed their hearts—and relationship—forever.
Prior to reading this book, I didn’t know much about the LaBrant family. I had stumbled onto Savannah’s Instagram page on several occasions and had watch a few YouTube videos on their channel, but didn’t really know the whole background story. I typically don’t read many memoirs, but I really enjoyed reading this one! I am a sucker for a love story so of course I loved hearing about how they met and fell in love. It was also very refreshing to read a love story from a Christian, God-centered couple, as that seems to be few and far between these days. One of the things that I took away from the book, was Cole talking about possible different worship styles between himself and Savannah. I never really thought about much about how different people have different worship styles until I read this book. After our church closed, my husband and I have been attending different churches for the past few years trying to find one the right fit. But we have yet to find it. And after reading this book I realized that my husband has a bit of a different worship style than I do, which I think is why we haven’t found a church yet that fits both of our needs. Overall, this was an interesting book about the LaBrant family and their love story, as well as a great example of what is appropriate for a Christian couple before marriage.
Thank you to the publisher, Thomas Nelson, for sending me a review copy of this book.
