"Beyond Ordinary"- a review

Since we finished "The Do What You Can Plan" last week, I am starting this week off with a review. I bought this book on my own after reading another blogger's review. I have received nothing for this review I just feel strongly about this book.
Beyond Ordinary: When a Good Marriage Just Isn't Good Enough
I have read a lot of books on marriage and none of them have touched me as much as this one has. Justin and Trisha Davis take you through an honest journey of their marriage with no sugar coating. They tell it all. And to me that meant a lot because most marriage books talk about how great the author's marriage is and how they want you to have the same. And let's face it while you are reading you know that they are not telling the whole story. This one is so different. They back their advice up with scripture. They give honest perspective to normal issues in a marriage and make you take a hard look at your own marriage without judging or telling you how you are supposed to feel. I started a section in my journal to answer the questions at the end of each chapter. And looking back from the first chapter to the last chapter and seeing the difference in my answers really affected me. I really noticed how much Trisha's thoughts matched some of mine. I am really working on it now that I realize it. I want to have an extraordinary marriage. And guess what, John is going to read the book too. As soon as I get his Nook library updated. I think that this book would be a great gift for anyone- Newlywed to "old married couples". It is a great book that I highly recommend you finding at your favorite book retailer and reading and applying it to your marriage. I also think that it would make a great book for a couples group study. Buy it, read it, and then come back and let me know what you think of it!
