Travis lost count of how many girls he’d met online and taken on dates, but none of them seemed right. Extremely discouraged, he tried again with a girl named Devon. They got married! Tannera, on the other hand, tried online dating and decided it wasn’t a fit. All three share tips for successful online dating (or meeting), how to get beyond merely clicking through profiles, and how to know if it’s time to log off or keep trying.

Lasting Love Isn’t What You Think

Guests: Jefferson Bethke,

23:43 – 

See what we did there? If you’ve heard of Jeff Bethke, you probably know he’s the author of “It’s Not What You Think.” His newest book is “Love That Lasts,” and Lisa called him to catch up on his current life (babies, sickness, ministry, Hawaii), and to talk about how a recovering “party boy” married a “perfect Christian girl.” Jeff also talks marriage expectations, what commitment looks like, and gives encouragement if you’re burned out on dating.
