Publisher's Summary

Number one New York Times best seller • A candid, inspiring guide to finding lasting love and sustaining a healthy relationship by getting real about your goals - based on the viral, multi-million-view sermon series about dating, marriage, and sex

"No matter where you are and no matter what stage of life you are in, Relationship Goals will be a game changer." (Levi Lusko)

Named one of the Best Books of the Year by Cosmopolitan

Realer than the most real conversation you’ve ever heard on the topic, Michael Todd’s honest, heartfelt, and powerful teaching on relationships has already impacted millions of people in all seasons of life around the world. Now, in Relationship Goals, Michael tells his own story of heartache and healing, unpacks explosive truths from God’s word, and tells it to you straight to help you win at relationships in every part of your life.

Where did the idea for relationships come from in the first place? Does God really care who I hang out with? Is it even possible to avoid relational train wrecks? From his plan for intentional dating in the age of social media to handling break-ups well to doing family instead of just being in a family, Michael tackles the questions we all have about relational success.

As he candidly examines our most common pitfalls in relationships and the start-today ways to get past them, Michael helps you align your longings with God’s awesome desires for your life. Now, that’s a good relationship goal.

Critic Reviews

"The way God has moved this message like wildfire to millions of people speaks volumes about its value. There is no turnkey or quick fix to having rich relationships. With down-to-earth honesty, Michael Todd not only gives you a vision for what your relationships could look like, but he also gives you the road map to get you there." (Levi Lusko, lead pastor of Fresh Life Church and best-selling author)

"Michael Todd is one of my favorite preachers. He is a great man of God. I am so proud of him, and I am so glad he wrote this much-needed book about relationships. I know you'll love his authentic, personal, and engaging way of explaining how relationships work best when we do them God's way. Using principles from God's Word, this book will help you learn how to have better and more intimate relationships with your friends, your spouse, and, most important, with God!" (Robert Morris, founding lead senior pastor of Gateway Church and best-selling author of The Blessed Life, Beyond Blessed, and Take the Day Off

"We are often encouraged to practice what we preach. However, I think it's also important to preach what we practice. This is exactly what Mike and Natalie Todd have done. They have taken their lumps and transformed them into lessons. They have taken their pain and turned it into purpose. They have taken their mistakes and turned them into ministry. They have taken their blessings and turned them into a book. If you are looking for a blueprint to a blessed relationship, this book is for you." (Dr. Dharius Daniels, lead pastor of Change Church and author of Relational Intelligence)

WOW!!!

This book was amazing. I only wish that Pastor Michael would have done the audiobook. The emotions behind the words didn’t come across.

Too preachy but had some good advice

This book could've just been the last chapter and would've had the same effect on me. I understand he's a pastor and everything but that was way too much preaching. I think this book should've been called "Christian Relationship Goals" to give the readers a better reality of who this book is meant for.

From a Single 30 years old POV man

I was astonished with all the information shared by Pastor Mike. I was treating my relationships, dates without purpose. This book is definitely helping me during my single season and I encourage everyone to read it. No doubt my relationships moving forward are going to be blessed and intentional. The souls tie chapter is an eye opener.

Prepared for Process, Purpose & Partner

I first came across Pastor Mike Todd & TC last year & have since loved the Crazy Faith, Relationship Goals, Marked and several other series! This book is great & I love how you are walked through various seasons & how all ties together. Most importantly, how all is pointing back to God, His Ways, and Aligning to Our Purpose. Love studying also Book of Ruth & Esther in alignment with these principles.

My only prayer is I hope Pastor Todd & Natalie read their next audible. He is so funny and has so much passion - would love to have in his/her voice. I am sure they prayerfully considered for this book - praying changes for future :)

Amazing first book!

Audio tips

I only wish that once the wife “Natalie” began to speak that the audio voice switched to a female voice. Since this is an subtle it was hard differentiating who was speaking at times. In all, the book was GREAT. I would definitely recommend and utilize the tools provided. Thank you !!!!!

Great Book.

I would say this book added a few side notes that were not in the sermon series. If you’ve watched his sermon series, then you’ve read the book. I like his additional thoughts and other stories he tied into relationships and singleness.

This was an amazing read with biblical support! I loved the narrator who emphasized points in his “Pastor Todd” voice!
I feel a lot more secure in my choices and know that God has my back!

Real

The advice was real and based not only on how to be realistic when thinking or behaving in relationships; but also how to put God in all of it.

Inspiring and truthful

I’m so glad that Michael obeyed the Holy Spirit to write this book.
I am 39 and been happily married for 16 years but began the journey of knowing each other for 21 years.
We’ve had challenges but with God as our Partner, we are walking with Him every step of the way.
I was blessed listening to it as it encompasses truths for both the single and married alike.
This book is real, funny, inspiring and full of practical truths.
Thank you Michael and Natalie for your obedience to God to bring a well-needed balance and practical help to people.
With love,
C.J

Some good tips that can be implemented immediately. Also like that the narrator had a voice that wasn't annoying (very subjective, I know!)

God driver and preachy.

If you want to be told that you have no control in life and everything is God given to you, then this book is for you.
I got through chapters 1 & 2 and simply couldn’t listen to anymore.
I went into this with an open mind but it was just not my type of listening.

Took me a while to finish but I listened to parts over and over to really grasp the gems. This should be in everyones collection, married or single. I would have preferred to hear Michael Todds voice though.

Not relevant

I don't write alot of reviews.

I managed to get through 2 hours of this book hoping that I will discover actual advise or recommendations. Instead it is just another religious book, writen in old style with irrelevant information.

Highly irrelevant to non believers.

Much needed

I wish I had this 15 year ago when I was a 19 year old kid. It would have saved so much heartache. So much pain, caused and received, could have been avoided.

This is truly a flashlight to guide you through singleness and marriage. Stay purposeful and stay blessed.
