GIVEAWAY: Team Us, Marriage Together by Ashleigh Slater <--- Spoiler Alert: It's amazing!

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.

My Thoughts:
I would recomend this book to any 20/30/40 year olds who are married because it's hilarious, and some of the disagreements that Ashleigh and Tim had were the EXACT same ones my husband and I had, ver batum. I found myself laughing at the similarity of it all. I also loved all her references to things that I also loved growing up - Princess Bride, TGIF Tv line up when I was a kid, Gilmore Girls, and more recently, Downton Abbey, and yes, even the Olympic Sport, Curling, which I only recently started watching. While I'm only half way through this book, it's not only humorous, but very insightful. While some of the tips are obvious, others really struck me and made me stop and think. Just some of the tidbits from this book are...."Practice makes progress" [so true!],  "Don't assume the worst of your spouse; assume the best" [guilty!], and many more.

Ashleigh is a very talented writer, and I would suggest this book for any married couple. I suggested ages 20-40 just because of the references from the 80s/90s, but I'm sure everyone would get something from this book! Having her husband's insight was also helpful, if you choose to read this as a couple, it gives you the female and male perspective on issues, because sometimes they can be very different.
