Love That Lasts by Jefferson and Alyssa Bethke came out a few weeks ago & their story has resonated with so many readers.
Young people today enter adulthood with expectations of blissful dating followed by a romantic, fulfilling marriage only to discover they’ve been duped. They learned about love and sexuality from social media, their friends, Disney fairy tales, pornography, or even their own rocky past, and they have no idea what healthy, lifelong love is supposed to be like. The results are often disastrous, with this generation becoming one of the most relationally sick, sexually addicted, and divorce ridden in history.
Looking to God’s design while drawing lessons from their own successes and failures, the Bethkes explode the fictions and falsehoods of our current moment. One by one, they peel back the lies, such as the belief that every person has only one soul mate, that marriage will complete you, or that pornography and hook-ups are harmless.
There’s nothing sugar coated about their love story and their wisdom is well beyond their years.
#freebie – yep… you guessed it. Each couple that comes to Chicago for the weekend get this one too!
