In their new book Beyond Ordinary, Justin and Trisha Davis of RefineUs ministries dig deep and share how their ordinary marriage fell into ordinary patterns and almost ended in divorce. Thankfully God had other plans for them and is now using their story to inspire and encourage other couples to move beyond ordinary.
This past summer I was involved in a marriage seminar for women at my church. Several women didn't attend because they claimed to have a good marriage. But I don't want a good marriage. I don't want an ordinary marriage. I want my marriage to be amazing and extraordinary. I think every married couple has room for improvement when it comes to their marriage.
Do you want move beyond ordinary in your marriage? I know I do, and this book is a great encouragement. God can take your ordinary marriage and transform it into some thing extraordinary. This is what he did for Justin and Trisha, and you'll read all about their journey in a he says, she says format.
I really wanted to embed the trailer video, but couldn't get it to work. It's worth checking out and you can do so right HERE.
I really enjoyed this book, and even though I feel like I have an extraordinary marriage, Justin and Trisha's story reminded me that I need to be vigilant when it comes to guarding my marriage and persistent in asking God to keep it extraordinary.
I received this book free from Tyndale in exchange for an honest review.
