About the Book: Team Us:Marriage Together
Author: Ashleigh Slater
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.
Official Book Trailer:
Let’s face it, marriage today has become a mockery. Gone are the days where everyone falls in love and lives happily ever after. At least that is what some will lead you to believe. There are countless marriages that are thriving and surviving and couples are still in love and getting along with each other.
In the book Team Us, Ashleigh addresses all of these marriage issues. Marriage is hard work and it takes two individuals that are no longer separate, but now one together. I applaud Ashleigh for being transparent with her marriage and for using her marriage and life as a real example of what married couples experience in their lives together. Ashleigh provides countless situations and scenarios from her own marriage, a job loss, habits and hangups, parenting, disagreements and everyday issues that couples encounter in their marriage. This book is for couples to grow together, to learn from their experiences together and work on practical exercises that will help cultivate a healthy marriage and solidify a forever commitment.
At the end of each chapter there is a section called “Us Time”, there are questions, exercises and discussions specifically designed to help couples work through any issues they may be facing in their marriage. Team Us is a reference tool that can be used by newlyweds, established marriages and long time marriages. I like how there are scripture references incorporated throughout the book as an additional resource for reflection, forgiveness, grace and keeping your faith and love growing strong in your marriage.
Team Us uses a team approach. “It is so easy to fall into the me and you category. It is better to work together as a team, by taking on a team approach and keeping a winning attitude toward your marriage will help keep your marriage strong.”
What are you doing today to keep your marriage growing strong?
