"If we want love, why do we often settle for less?" 
— from the Foreword by Jason and Crystalina Evert

Tired of toxic relationships, many young adults want to clean up their love lives. They desire to give their lives to Christ and turn away from sin—but without a concrete plan, they quickly fall back into old habits. Featuring daily reflections and resolutions, this forty-day detox provides a practical "cleanse" for those who want to purify themselves from the poisoned dating culture and live a life of authentic freedom, respect, and love.

Inside you'll find:

  • Compelling and clear explanations of "God's plans for love, dating, and sex"
  • Hopeful true-life stories of people who have successfully moved from desiring chastity to actually living it
  • Practical tools, habits, and strategies to live more virtuously with joy and freedom
