APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Pastor Michael Todd became a viral sensation thanks to his Relationship Goals video series. The natural next step? This wonderfully insightful book on finding (and keeping) a relationship that will make both you and God happy. Drawing on Biblical scripture, his own experiences as a husband, and the struggles faced by his parishioners, Todd offers a road map to lasting love. He also discusses his vision of single life as an opportunity to learn how to make the Lord part of our sexuality and enter the dating world with the conscious intention of finding a spouse. Narrator Ameen Gaines evokes the cadence of a pastor, giving us Todd’s real talk and funny stories as if they were his own. We were inspired by the nondenominational religious approach that sets this book apart from so many dating guides. And while Todd’s messages are serious, his style is down to earth. Relationship Goals is a wise guide to love that’s fresh and very on point.
