Many people today scroll through photo after photo of happy couples and think, I want a relationship like that!
The thing is, those intimate relationships are a mirage—the closer you get to them, the more you realize they aren’t real at all. So, what does a real relationship look like? And how do you get there?
Michael Todd, the lead pastor of Transformation Church in Tulsa, OK, is a fresh and honest voice resonating with millions of people across the country with his debut book, Relationship Goals: How to Win at Dating, Marriage, and Sex
and the companion Relationship Goals Study Guide
(WaterBrook, Trade Paper)
on April 28, 2020. Todd is convinced that many people lack the tools or vision to build healthy relationships and thus encounter hurt, heartache, and hang-up’s. He believes that with proper aim and the right goal anyone can win at relationships. With biblical wisdom shared in a relevant and progressive manner, he engages readers in a unique conversation that counters today’s cultural norms.
By charting a course that candidly examines people’s most common relationship pitfalls and unpacks God’s Word, Todd hopes to transform a trendy hashtag into a future where the most cherished relationships thrive in relational life, hope, and abundance.
Todd takes a look at:
· How singleness is the most important stage for anyone wanting to be in a relationship
· What it means to choose intentional dating over recreational dating
· How to move on from mistakes made in the past
· Why love gets stronger after marriage
· What the Bible has to say about sex
· Why the best friendships have God at the center
“We live in a world that has more and more relationships and less and less love, more and more sex and less and less intimacy,” says Todd. “When I think about the pain I’ve experienced and have seen others experience from bad relationships, I can’t wait to share what the Bible says about how to do relationships, so that people can minimize the pain and start to benefit from the rewards. To do that, you’ve got to have a goal.”
Whether married, single, or “it’s complicated,” aiming for the right targets will make all the difference in finding true satisfaction.
