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.

What the critics say

"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)

This is not a "WANT", it is a "NEED"

I am a huge fan of Pastor Mike and I followed the "Relationship goals" series so I did not think twice before purchasing this book. I love how RAW he is about things, he gives good, practical advice and also has scriptures to back them up. I also loved that his wife was also involved to give a different perspective, a woman's perspective.
This is the book that everyone needs, especially in this day and age where society provides mixed advice/information as to what relationships should look like. The book was also engaging and funny as hell!!! Nah ya'll need to get this book because it is a GAME CHANGER!!!!!

Good listen

i really enjoyed the book overall. At times though, i found myself wanting to hear the story told in Mike Todd's voice, when he told his jokes. Otherwise, it was a great listen.

A good foundation....

It's not awful by any means, and is a good basis for relationship advice, especially if you are single, dating or maybe newly married, don't expect anything in depth or revolutionary if you have read other marriage books or done pre-marital/marital counseling. To be honest a lot of it is word for word from his YouTube sermon series, and I would have probably just watched that if I had known vs buying the book.

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

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!

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.

Great message!

This book has a lot of great content, it reads rather simple and redundant in areas.

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.

I think I can

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!

Mind Blowing

What a Jewel this was, the expansion on the relation of husband wife and God was beautifully articulated and a new found awareness of the Soulties and their effects on relationships and marraige is essential to be understood for both men and women who may make the wrong things fairseeming.

amazing, hilarious and useful

This book is amazing, hilarious and useful. Mr Todd is sharing experience but also tried to help you regardless of whether you are single, married or inbetween relationships! I loved how he explained that dating in marriage is the best because God intended for you to "get it on afterwards". Thank you for writing this!
