You & Me Forever: Marriage in Light of Eternity (Claire Love Publishing, 2014)

You & Me Forever is less about marriage and more about spiritual purpose. Francis and Lisa Chan seek to live for God, and they demonstrate a commitment to living for God first in everything, including all human relationships.  The premise you will find in this book is wrapped up in an ideal: Put God first, then the rest will fall into place. Set your mind on eternity. I particularly appreciate the book’s emphasis on developing an intimate relationship with God.

With a mind set on eternity, decisions are easier to make. Loving and serving God in spiritual mission and earthly purpose will affect every decision, prayer, and motivation, causing a unity of mind and desire. The effect will determine the future of every aspect of any of life’s choices.

The authors maintain that marital and parent-to-child relationships improve and are unified through this process of loving God and serving him above serving ourselves and our human, earthly desires.
