Marriage is great, but it's not forever. It's until death do us part. Then come eternal rewards or regrets depending on how we spent our lives.
In his latest book, Francis Chan joins together with his wife Lisa to address the question many couples wonder at the altar: How do I have a healthy marriage? Setting aside typical topics on marriage, Francis and Lisa dive into Scripture to understand what it means to have a relationship that satisfies the deepest parts of our souls.
In the same way Crazy Love changed the way we saw our personal relationship with God, You and Me Forever: Marriage in Light of Eternity will radically shift the way we see one of the most important relationships in our life.
Jesus was right. We have it all backwards. The way to have a great marriage is by not focusing on marriage. Whether you are single, dating or married, You and Me Forever will help you discover the adventure that you were made for and learn how to thrive in it.
100% of the net profits from You and Me Forever: Marriage in Light of Eternity will go towards providing food, shelter and rehabilitation for thousands of orphaned children and exploited women in partnership with global charities.

One of my friends have this book to me as an engagement present. I bought another as my now husband and I decided to do this as our first study together as a married couple. We wanted 2 books so we could highlight our own books. We are on week 5 and absolutely love this study. Our relationship has been Christ-centered since the beginning so this book is confirmation of our desires of putting God first and offers us scriptures to support it, as well as further suggestions on how to not only view a God first marriages, but how to go out and do God's work together. This book makes a great gift to yourself or others. My friend who gifted us this book did the study herself after her divorce years ago and plans to do it again with her fiance.
You And Me Forever by Francis and Lisa Chan is the best kind of bait-and-switch. It looks like a marriage book, and it sounds like a marriage book, but it's not REALLY a book on marriage. It's really a book about having the eternal view of every aspect of life, including marriage and parenting. It's a book about seeking first the Kingdom of God and everything else, including a healthy marriage, flowing from that. And it's about seeing everything you have, including your marriage, as something to be used for the mission of God in this world.
