There is one truth that I believe is universal to all of us: We are really good at falling in love and not so good at staying in love. Many people get married but don’t experience what they dreamed of when they said, “I do.”
I’ll never forget the humbling moment when I realized that while I had helped bring Brandi some of her greatest joys, I had also contributed to her deepest pain. I don’t know why I didn’t see it earlier. I mean, think about it. Can you name any area of your life you can neglect and then expect to see improvement?
Does this work with your body? Nope. Ignore it, and you’ll get fat. Does this work with your business? Nope. Ignore it, and it will crash. Does this work with your yard? Nope. Ignore it and, weeds will overrun it. So why in the world do we think we can put our marriages on autopilot and they will still be what God wants them to be? Marriage is deeply satisfying. Marriage is incredibly fulfilling. Marriage is loads of fun. Marriage is full of joy and hope and laughter. But marriage is not easy. Not even close.
This is why I’m so excited to share with you a new book that I think is a game changer. My friends Justin and Trisha Davis just released their first book, Beyond Ordinary: When a Good Marriage Isn’t Good Enough.
Let me give you one word of warning: this is not a safe book. I know Justin and Trish. I know their heart. I know their mission. And with no apologies they’re about to disrupt and challenge everything you’ve ever thought about improving in your marriage.
As soon as I started reading the manuscript that led to this book, I realized just what an amazing resource Justin and Trish are sharing with us. Tears welled in my eyes as I read, knowing this is not just a book that will help you discover an “extraordinary marriage”; it will actually tell you how to achieve it.
Much of the genius of this book undoubtedly lies in the reality that Justin and Trish have lived these principles themselves. I’ve had the unbelievable privilege of doing life with Justin and Trish over the past twelve years, and I am better for it.
I can tell you firsthand that if you’ll listen to the God-given wisdom they share in this book, your life and marriage will never be the same.
I am deeply grateful for the transformation that has happened in my own marriage as a result of the wisdom in this book.
I want to give away 3 copies today.
Just leave your name and where you are from in the comments and I’ll randomly choose winners this weekend.
