Team Us: A Book Review and GIVEAWAY!

About The Book:

What are you agreeing to when you say “I do”? When a couple promises “I do,” they agree to more than just a shared last name, a joint bank account, and no more dateless nights. This husband and wife duo forms a new team. “Life together” becomes their mantra. Nothing can come between them. At least, that’s the plan. But then real life sets in. With it come disappointments and frustrations. If the couple isn’t intentional in their day-to-day interactions, that once enthusiastic “we” can slowly revert to “you” and “me.” Before long, the couple’s left wondering what happened to their team spirit. 
Team Us: Marriage Together offers couples practical ways to cultivate and strengthen unity in their marriages. Author Ashleigh Slater shares from her own marriage as she presents couples with realistic ideas on how to foster cooperation, deepen commitment, and exercise grace on a daily basis

My Review:

During the last year I have had the wonderful opportunity to read a number of books about Christian marriage. 2015 looks like it is going to be the same. I recently read Team Us: Marriage Together and it was a great read.
One of my favorite parts of the book is that you will read points of view from both Ashleigh and her husband, Ted. To me that is really unique and loved being able to read thoughts about marriage from both a female and male perspective. The book was engaging, inspiring, funny, honest and heart-felt. The authors did not brush marriage with a "everything is always wonderful" picture, but rather reminds the reader that marriage can be hard, yet when the couple comes together as a team, it can be successful, healthy and thriving. The book is not text-booky in it's writing. The author writes as though you are right in the room having a conversation, sitting down with coffee and is so incredibly encouraging. It was a breath of fresh air to have read Team Us: Marriage Together and it is a book that I will gladly pass on to my girls to read one day. It would be a fantastic read for anyone considering marriage, engaged, newlywed, and especially for those who may be facing a tough season in their marriage.
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!

  3. Never let your flesh assume or jump to conclusions. Make sure you know the whole situation before anything and if you can't know the whole situation place it in God's hands and let it go. Don't get angry just trust that the Lord knows all and be lead by the Spirit.
