Stormie Omartian’s bestselling books on the power of prayer have touched millions of lives. Recent books have taken a closer look at the leading of the Holy Spirit and the call to be a prayer warrior for God. Now Stormie takes a fresh look at another powerful aspect of knowing our Creator…His amazing and great love for us.
We reflect God most clearly when we are motivated by the power of love in all we say and do. But first we have to understand the depth of God's love for us and receive it. Then we must learn how to effectively express our love for Him.
“One of the many ways we can show our love to God is to deliberately choose to show love to others and in every situation,” says Stormie. “We can only accomplish this with the guidance and enablement of the Holy Spirit. When we do that, God blesses us and transforms our lives in ways we cannot even imagine. And we will have a sense of God's pleasure toward us that is far more valuable than anything else we may desire. This book is about making that sometimes difficult choice and the rewards that follow.”
Transform your heart, your relationships, and your future as you press into God’s love and let the power of His life and character move through you.
- Insights into Love
Choose Love by Stormie Omartian is quite a deep investigation of the topic of love including God's love for us, our love for others and even loving ourselves. It focuses on 1 Corinthians 13, commonly called the love chapter, but Stormie adds some interesting insights to this much read passage of scripture.
I found this book to be quite interesting and challenging in the area of loving God and loving others because so often we as humans fall short of God's standard of love and any improvement in this area would be great felt by everyone involved.
The narration was very well done as it is the author reading the book and she has a very soothing tone, which fits nicely with the source topic.
This book would be good for anyone interested in love in general and how God loves us in particular as it contains some solid revelations on the concept of God's love for us.

- Insightful book
have listened to an audio book called Choose Love by Stormie Omartian. Let me tell you a little bit about this book. I have read other books by this author such as Power of a Praying Wife so I looked forward to another by this author.
I found this to be an insightful book about the many aspects of choosing to love. It really is a choice we can make. This involves loving God, loving others including enemies, and even loving ourselves. The author has a lot of valuable insight about love and shares her own stories throughout to effectively illustrate her points.
I really liked the chapter near the end of the book that pointed out what a lack of love for others is like...using the things in I Corinthians 13 that love is not. These made me stop and think if these are in my own life.
Each chapter ends with a "prayer of love" and "words of love."
The author reads this book so it makes it feel more personal as you listen. She has a soothing voice that fits with this topic.
This audio version of this book was provided to me by the christianaudio Reviewers program for my honest review.
- Very Good Reminder
I received this book courtesy of Christian Audio for the purpose of writing a review.
Narrator Thoughts: Another author read book that was fantastic. Stormie does an excellent job of bringing the pages to life. The emphasis and passion that she gave to this book were very nice.
Books Thoughts: From the first chapter I found Choose Love to not only be an informative book about the love of God, but also a call to love God and others. As I listened I my soul was not only impressed with a sense of how much God loves me, but also a sense of how that compels me to love others. When you have been loved, you cannot help but love. This book was very encouraging to me. It reminded me of the Father's love for me.
The only thing that I didn't like about this book was that at one point she said that if your earthly father was abusive it is very hard for you to understand God as your loving Father. While I know that this is true, I also know that blaming others for our struggles is not the answer. Awakening to the reality of His love is a struggle no matter what your childhood looked like. But letting God and His love come in and heal us from the scares of the past, that is the real key. Again this is just my personal thought.
Through personal experiences and stories, Stormie shares her heart about the love that has captured it. At the end of each chapter she had prayers and verses tying in with what she talked about in the chapter. I found them very refreshing.

What does love really mean? "God loves you" is a term that is used very often, but what does it mean? and how do we choose to love God and show his love to others? In the Audio book "Choose Love" Author Stormie Omartian breaks down Love and explains the difference between God's love and human love ..Stormie Omartian explains the true depths of Gods love and how unconditional it truly is..I really enjoyed this audio book! It is always an added bonus when the author of the book is the one reading the book to you.. Sitting down to read a book doesn't always fit into my busy schedule so I was blessed by being able to listen to the the authors voice as she read from her heart, and that made it much more personal and real .
When i started this book I felt like the author was a good friend sharing great words of wisdom with me while having coffee in my living room . Stormie Omartian has a very soft and warm voice and you can easily tell she is passionate about the message she is delivering. . .
This book really gave me a great understand of just how much God really does love me. I left feeling encouraged and hopeful for more to come..
Each chapter is packed full of godly wisdom and knowledge.. The author takes her time to explain God's love .one my favorite parts was the way each chapter ended with a prayer and scripture verses that are related to the topic of that chapter..
I loved being able to listen to each chapter more than once this really helped me retain the information.. I def recommend this book to anyone who wants a better understanding of Gods love for them or for anyone who wants to be closer to Him. closer to him .. this book has really helped me to know God better and has encouraged me to spend more time with him ..Choose Love is an audio book I will be playing on repeat for many days to come.
