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: The Unifying Power of Grace, Commitment, and Cooperation in Marriage 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.
Team Us is one of those books I'll recommend to couples for a long time to come. It's an important corrective for Christians for a lot of the lies that our culture tells us about marriage.
This book quickly jumped to the very top of my favorites list. Ashleigh's ability to draw in the reader with her candor, passion, and vulnerability is second to none. She shares real-life stories that every couple can relate to, and offers practical solutions for strengthening and developing your marriage - no matter where you're at in marriage's journey!
I found Team Us: The Unifying Power of Grace, Commitment, and Cooperation in Marriage to be a very refreshing and enjoyable read. Some chapters made me laugh and others made me cry, but all chapters spoke to me and encouraged me in my own marriage. I definitely recommend this book!
