Team Us: Marriage Together, By Ashleigh Slater-Book Review
About the book:
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, bringing with it 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."
Though not anything "new" or "mind blowing" in the terms of marriage books, I did enjoy it. The author wrote a fun how-to for newly weds and not so newly weds. With the occasional insight from her husband on a situation, you see both sides of it and you get to see how it affected him too.
Weaving in humor and insights Ashliegh shows how two people, raised completely different, can come together, and become one.
It's a great start if you've never read any relationship books because it's light and she uses several "pop culture" examples for better understanding. Overall I'd give it 4 out of 5.
I received this book from the publisher is exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.
