New Read- Going all the Way

A couple of Sundays ago, as I was waiting for church to start, I was perusing the books out in the foyer that were recommended reading for everyone.  (ps. I started going with the bf to Life Church when I was in funky town...seriously look it up if you are interested in a church where the pastor is relateable, doesn't hold back, and challenges you every lesson.  Even if you don't reside around a Life Church campus, you can catch their live feed each Sunday and/or watch past sermons online.)

I just got this book in the mail today and I am super excited about what I might learn from this book.  The description of this book reads:

“Going all the way” used to mean getting what you want from the opposite sex now…and paying for it later.

It’s time to redefine.

Smart advice for a new generation about love, sex, and happily ever after.

You’ve seen marriages fail time and again. Even relationships you thought were bullet proof don’t last. Once promising couples dissolve in the acid of selfishness, conflict, or unfaithfulness… or fade away to a cold, gray lovelessness. No wonder that for our generation, “getting what you want” is often a substitute for love, and disillusionment about marriage is the new normal.

So what do you do if you want a marriage that doesn’t just survive, but thrives? That doesn’t just begin romantically but ends magnificently? Answer: You do something different.

Whether you’re thinking ahead to marriage, are about to be wed, or have been married for a while and want to make changes, this book can help. Going All the Way will guide you through the choices and commitments you need to make now in order to build a strong and vibrant relationship that will go the distance. In a world where going all the way means putting yourself first, author Craig Groeschel will show you how, by putting God first, you can build a soul-enriching, lifelong relationship.

With practical, candid discussions about sex, first dates, integrity, forgiveness, and communication, Craig will help you prepare for and experience a relationship that gives fresh, hope-filled meaning to “going all the way” with the one you love.
The best part about this book is that there is something in it for everyone, whether you are single, dating, married, etc.  I will definitely fill you in more after I finish reading it.
