Married for nearly 38 years, author Deborah DeArmond and her husband have made the spoken declaration, “I choose you today” a regular part of their communication. It’s when we least feel like saying it that we need to remind ourselves that love is a choice, not a feeling. I Choose You Today features 31 scriptural principles that support marriage and help couples develop healthy biblically based behavior.
Built on an introductory anecdotal story, each chapter has an inspirational takeaway of not only what to do, but how to begin applying the principles immediately. Thought provoking questions create talking points for couples to explore their own choices and experiences in each area serve to generate open dialogue of discovery. I Choose You Todayis not a book of “shoulds,” but one of clearly identified choices that each individual can make to grow their marriage and align it with the word of God. Every saying ends with a conventional wisdom quote.

With Valentine's Day just a few shorts days away, the month of February always seems to get people wanting to spice up their marriage, learn how to show appreciation more, and how to reignite relationships that may have become mundane and everyday. Well I am so excited to share with you about a book that will help you will all that.
I Choose You Today is a wonderful reminder that strong and happy marriages don't "just happen". It takes time, energy and a lot of hard work (and even hard moments) to develop a marriage that will stand the test of time and life experiences.
The book is very well written and I love that you take each chapter as a day in the month and can work through it like a devotional. It would be an ideal wedding gift or bridal shower gift, and even a perfect Christmas gift for a newly married couple.
The book is full of scripture references, personal stories and wonderful tips on how to choose love in your marriage. This would be a fantastic book to work through with your spouse right now, with Valentine's Day so close. In fact, doing the I Choose You Challenge (see link above in red) this month is a perfect addition to the book.
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
