Every Christian has a sex life, even if they're not having sex. Sometimes love is muddy and confusing. Sometimes it's beautiful and poetic. But our relationships have the potential to transform us spiritually.

Mud & Poetry tells the story of a young man's honest search for God in his messy sex life. Tyler Blanski dates girls. He reads what old monks and romantics say about love. He even takes a yearlong vow of celibacy in hopes of finding out how God uses dating, sex, and marriage—or singleness and waiting—to awaken and perfect us.

Christian relationships and sexuality aren't for prudes, Blanski says. They are for people who long to become what they were created to be: reflections of God.

The Upper Room is a global ministry dedicated to supporting the spiritual formation of Christians seeking to know and experience God more fully. From its beginnings as a daily devotional guide, The Upper Room has grown to include publications, programs, prayer support, and other resources to help believers of all ages and denominations move to a deeper level of faith and service.
