Develop a mature, pure dating outlook.

The questions in If You Really Loved Me are the most common ones Evert is asked when speaking about the virtue of chastity in hundreds of Catholic, Evangelical Christian, and public schools. His humorous, friendly, and blunt approach opens hearts and minds to a topic often either rejected out of hand or misunderstood.

Teens will find this book a useful guide to starting a relationship, deciding one’s vocation, one day finding a potential spouse, and maintaining purity – without forsaking love. This book will give parents and educators new insights to help teens know the difference between love and lust. They may even look at their own lives differently, because as Evert explains, chastity is not only for singles; married coupes must practice this virtue as well.

Lent is Coming!

Meditations for Lent is our best-selling Lent book ever:

New from Matthew Kelly:

Prayer to St. Valentine

Dear Saint and glorious martyr, teach us to love unselfishly and to find great joy in giving.  Enable all true lovers to bring out the best in each other.  Let them love each other in God and in God each other.


Love is patient and kind

it does not envy or boast

and it’s never proud,

love is not rude or selfish,

it does not get angry easily,

or keep track of wrongs.

Love does not delight in bad

things but it rejoices in the truth.

Love always protects,

trusts hopes and preserves.

Love never fails.

Saint Paul to the Corinthians.
