In her new book, Joined by God, author Elizabeth Strong shares a true story of hurting and lonely people involved in an extraordinary “Taboo” love. Not just a personal chronicle of a most fascinating odyssey, Strong's literary debut also examines some of the life choices and issues that confront Christians and Christian couples today-i.e meeting "Mr. Wrong" before meeting”Mr. Right" and Do you have the right spouse?

Joined by God chronicles the journey of two people from different races and cultures who, through prayer, find love in each other. Strong lived in some of the most cosmopolitan communities in the United States including New York City and Los Angeles. After a series of failed relationships, she prayed and asked God for the partner who was right for her-regardless of race.

A celebration of the miracle of prayer, power of love and a Heavenly Father leveling the playing field. Joined by God tells a touching story of two surrendered people who dared to fight the odds. It explores the intricacies of relationships in the astonishing search for a Christian spouse in the light of God's word.
