Tell your friends:
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. Start discussion groups around the book content. Communicate the mission, vision, and story of this project to people.

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 goes straight to this vision. We would love to raise $5 million to feed the hungry, free women from prostitution and spread the gospel to unreached places. But we can't do it alone and that's why we need your help.
All net proceeds are being directed to Crazy Love Ministries, a 501(c)3 registered in the state of California, and then are 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 ordering your own copy here or by donating directly to the project fund.
Here are some of the more popular questions we’ve been getting:
I already have a book. How else can I contribute to the $5 million goal?
You can donate directly to the project fund here. Also, consider ordering books for friends!
Is there special bulk pricing?
Yes! Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
What about international shipping?
While we don’t ship internationally from our site, you can place an order with Amazon who has additional shipping options (including international): Click here to order from Amazon.
Where else is the book available?
You and Me Forever is available most places where Francis Chan’s books are sold, including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Family Christian Stores, Lifeway, Mardel, and many others. Please check with your local book retailer, and if it’s not there… ask! But at the same time, know that books ordered off this site generate about $4 more each for the project than those bought elsewhere.
What is the plan for releasing You and Me Forever in other languages?
At this time You and Me Forever is only available in English. We are currently developing our international strategy and will share updates when we have them.
When will the study guide be released?
An official study guide is in development at the moment, and will be released shortly. Until then, Francis and Lisa carefully and prayerfully crafted questions at the end of each chapter to help guide reflection and discussion. Stay tuned for more.
Is there an ebook?
Yes! The e-book is available for download at Amazon, Nook, Kobo and Google.
What if I can’t afford to buy You and Me Forever, but I really want to read it?
Part of the reason why Francis and Lisa decided to publish independently was so they could bless others with the book who couldn’t afford it. To download a free PDF, please click here: Download PDF.
