TEAM US review and give-away!

I recently received a book titled, Team Us Marriage Together written by Ashleigh Slater, with side comments by her husband, so you can get the guy's point of view in their story.

This is a quick read book, that would be perfect to read together with your spouse or soon to be spouse or individually, as you would still get a lot from the book. I have been married for 10 years so this book didn't offer anything real new for me, however it is very encouraging read. It would have been great to hear the message they share in the book when I first started out in my marriage. My husband and I have had the team concept down for a few years now, and that really makes a different in your marriage when you view yourself as a team, verses just two individuals in a marriage. I see this as a main reason for divorce today. No one is perfect, we all need to give grace in situations and work together as a team. I would recommend this book to all young couples who planning or recently married to get this book. At the end of each chapter is a section called Us Time, which offers some questions to discuss with your spouse.

Here are some points from the book:
"It's about marriage together. Marriage as a team with both husband and wife working and playing toward a winning season."

"Grace helps marriage stay on that heavenward "until death do us part" course."

"Assume the best of the others' motives and actions."

"Practice makes progress." ~not perfect

"As important as finances are, marriage comes first."

"Yep, marriage requires hard work. It takes perseverance and patience. It means teamwork and a "never give up" attitude."

I am able to give one book away to one of my readers. If you would like you very own copy of this book, be sure to comment for your chance to win one by February 1, 2015!!

About the book:
176 pages / Forward by Dr. Gary Chapman (author of 5 Love Languages)
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.
 “Finishing your marriage story well is definitely within your reach, no matter what your history tells you.”
