Love at Last Sight: Thirty Days to Grow and Deepen Your Closest Relationships Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Everything you've been taught about relationships is wrong.

The movies and TV make it look easy. Matchmaking Web sites have it down to a science. Two people connect--love at first sight--and the relationship is magical from then on. But the truth is, strong, deep relationships that last a lifetime aren't based on the mysterious chemistry of two personalities. Real love in relationships--friends, married couples, siblings, parents--isn't a magic act. It's a journey. A great relationship grows from an investment of time and effort.

Kerry and Chris Shook know that deep relationships aren't built on initial attractions, but on last things--the experience you shared the last time you were with someone . . . the words you spoke with her last week . . . the effort you made for him the last time you were together. And Love at Last Sight offers a one-month relationship plan that will improve your most important bonds, including a weekly focus and daily readings that guide you through the process. By learning to be present in the moment, acting intentionally, risking awkwardness, and learning to let go, you'll discover wisdom from the Bible that contradicts what popular culture would have you believe.

Meaningful relationships depend on seeing other people as they are, so that the last time your eyes meet on this earth, your relationship will be closer and deeper than ever before. Love at Last Sight is the last book you'll need to get your dearest relationships right.
