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 and his wife Lisa address the question that many couples wonder at the altar: “How do I have a great 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 proceeds from You and Me Forever: Marriage in Light of Eternity will go towards various ministries that include providing food, shelter and rehabilitation for thousands of orphaned children and exploited women around the world.
We believe that nothing is impossible.
This project began several years ago when God gave Francis the idea for You and Me Forever. With the vision to see marriages transformed also came the hope for tens of thousands of lives impacted and restored through its proceeds. In other words, something as simple as a book could be able to raise millions of dollars for some of the world’s deepest needs right now.
Feeding the hungry. Rescuing survivors of human trafficking and slavery. Getting the gospel to unreached places. As with Francis' previous books, Francis and Lisa will be giving away 100% of the net proceeds to various ministry partners and organizations all over the world. But in the interest of raising as much money as possible, the book is being self-published by a team of dedicated (and creative) volunteers--dedicated producers, writers, designers, marketers, tweeters, etc. But we also need your help.
We want to invite you into this missional cause to see what God can do when we collectively love and serve those in the most desperate and broken parts of the world. Whether you are a blogger, artist, church leader or mom, we need your help getting the word out to as many people as possible.
This is a grassroots movement.
We are a self-publishing team of volunteers working to market and launch this book project because 100% of the proceeds will go towards providing food, shelter, and rehabilitation for suffering people around the world. If you feel led to partner with us, here are three ways we would love for you to help:

Somewhere along the way, we realized that this book would be more than a book.
To celebrate their 20th anniversary Francis and Lisa decided to serve at a village in Africa that one of their friends started. This body of believers had been building a village to feed children dying of starvation, liberate women trapped in prostitution, and give hope and opportunity to a community ravished by poverty. Moved by what God was doing there for the poor, Francis and Lisa wanted to bless the ministry to double or triple its impact.
With another book already in motion, this time written together by Francis and Lisa, they saw an opportunity to use the book as a way to support the work in places like this village in Africa. They decided to self-publish with a team of volunteers to generate as much money possible to give away.
100% of net profits from each book sold will go straight to this vision. We would love to raise 5 million dollars to feed the hungry, free women from prostitution and spread the gospel to unreached places. We can't do it alone and that's why we need your help.
All net proceeds will be directed to Crazy Love Ministries, a 501(c)3 registered in the state of California, and then dispersed from there to several previously-selected partners for the book. Stay tuned for updates around impact and hope made from people like you. Support the work now by pre-order your own copy.
