GIVEAWAY: “Team Us: Marriage Together” Book by Ashleigh Slater
My review of this book:
I was anxious to receive this book, as I feel like I can always do better in my marriage. I am also always on the look out for new ideas to incorporate and I am always willing to learn.
This book is a simple and quick read, which is nice for the busyness of life. There were lots of phrases or thoughts that piqued my interest and I was quick to highlight those thoughts because I wanted to discuss it with my husband.
Most of what I read, I felt like my husband and I had already dealt with in our 21 years together. I believe that the author and her husband have been married for about 10 years, so I’ve got a few on them 🙂
I enjoyed this book, but I just feel like we are on the other side of this “learning curb” mountain. This author loves the Lord and loves her husband, it is evident in her words throughout the book.
This book would be ideal for a young married couple, just starting out on the adventure of marriage. There is your reading portion and then there are a few questions, at the end of each chapter. Those questions can be reflective (if your husband isn’t a participator type person) or you can use those questions with your husband, as dinner conversation or date night talk.
This would also be a great “shower” gift for a newly engaged couple. I will probably be passing this onto my nephew and his new bride, as they have just begun on this journey.
Be sure and “LIKE” this post, throw me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org), “LIKE” this post on facebook or instagram for your chance to win a copy of this book. The drawing will be held on January 25, 2014. I will email the winner to gather the details for Propeller Consulting, LLC to send you your prize!

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.”
