Love Changes Everything
Finding What's Real in a World Full of Fake
Warning: Real love will change every part of your existence
We all crave a love that doesn't fade and doesn't fail--even when we do. That's the kind of love God demonstrates for us through the remarkable story of Hosea and Gomer. Unpacking this powerful love story from the Old Testament, pastor Micah Berteau releases us from the fears, hurts, insecurities, and anxieties of life by showing us just how extravagantly we are loved--in spite of our faults, our failures, and our sins.
If you're tired of trying so hard to be worthy of someone else's love, if you're lost in what's fake or drawn to live for what's temporary, Micah Berteau has good news for you: there is a better way to live and love.

"God loves you--three words with such profound meaning. In a society saturated by the world's standard of love, there is no greater time to be reminded of the incredible, personal, and miraculous love of God that will never leave you nor abandon you. Micah Berteau is a gifted leader and pastor who has tailored his personal stories and biblical insight into an encouraging journey for readers to discover God's love that really changes everything."
Brian Houston, Global Senior Pastor of Hillsong Church
"Love changes everything! The love I'm referring to is God's love--a love that is redemptive, relentless, and unconditional. Micah has done an excellent job of unpacking the lessons discovered in the book of Hosea and correlating them to our intrinsic need to love and be loved, and how when you encounter love, you ultimately encounter God--for God is love. I'm excited for the release of Love Changes Everything because as each of us becomes rooted in God's extravagant love, we'll experience a freedom and a confidence that empowers us to become who we were created to be. That's the inherent power of love--no one remains the same once true love is experienced!"
John Bevere, bestselling author, minister, and cofounder of Messenger International
"I am amazed at how my son combines humor, content, Scripture, explanations, life pictures, and an incredible Old Testament story in today's vernacular for this book. Watching God direct Micah's steps his entire life, I saw the makings of a man of God. What he has learned, he has walked through. His heart is burdened for this culture that is inundated with division, disunity, and headlines of hate. Love Changes Everything hits the reset button. Honestly, it really is an incredible read."
Glen Berteau, senior pastor of The House Modesto and author of Christianity Lite and Christianity to Go
"In today's culture, affirmation and love are so often found through strangers on social media. With hopes that the right pose or the perfect caption will take away insecurities, people are searching for a shallow love to temporarily fulfill them. In Love Changes Everything, Micah Berteau beautifully unpacks the revelation of God's unfailing adoration for us. For as long as I've known Micah, I've admired his heart for people and his passion to share the grace and love of God with every person he meets. This book will leave you with a renewed perspective on how greatly you're loved by the One who is love. No matter your age or season of life, you will be blessed as you read Love Changes Everything."
Chris Durso, author of The Heist: How Grace Robs Us of Our Shame
"Micah is a living, breathing example of how to live out our one true mission as Christian people: to love. Through his book Love Changes Everything, Micah takes you on a journey of biblical reference and lays down the bridge to everyday application that we can then use to go forward and impact the lives of others. Love changes everything around it, but you first have to understand it--the way God intended."
Bryce Petty, former NFL player
"Micah Berteau injects our broken world with the undeniable healing power of love. In Love Changes Everything, Micah equips us with the necessary biblically substantiated tools empowering us to explore, embrace, and express the amazing love of God, and with that love . . . change the world!"
Samuel Rodriguez, New Season lead pastor, NHCLC president, author of You Are Next!, and executive film producer of Breakthrough
"Micah Berteau is the real deal and has written a compelling book about our search for love. His honest and humorous style will draw you in and keep you turning the pages. . . . As you read this book you will find yourself more convinced than ever about how big and real God's love is. Get the book, and get one for a friend!"
