Author’s Testimonial

“For the editing and design process, there is no one better with whom I would want to work.  During this project, Matthew was humble, honest, and fun to work alongside of.  He has a keen design eye, sharp editing mind, and gives extremely helpful feedback.  Date Different is a better project because of his thumb prints on it.  I highly recommend using Mathew for your next project.  I know I will be using him for my next many.”

When Jesus saves us, everything changes. If we understand this, then our practice of dating, sex, and marriage simply cannot stay the same. The is pretty clear. Jesus saves us. Jesus changes us. Jesus changes how we view and practice things. Dating is one of those things. Sex is one of those things. Marriage is one of those things. Let's begin a conversation about how Jesus calls us to... Date Different.
