Review of “Vertical Marriage”


Book Description
He never saw it coming. It was the night of Dave and Ann’s tenth wedding anniversary and if asked how their marriage was doing, Dave would have said a 9.8 out of 10 and he even guaranteed Ann would say the same. But instead of giving a celebratory kiss, Ann whispered, “I’ve lost my feelings for you.”
Divorce seemed inevitable. But starting that night, God began to reveal to Dave and Ann the most overlooked secret of getting the marriage we are looking for: the horizontal marriage relationship just doesn’t work until the vertical relationship with Christ is first.
As founders of a multi-campus church and marriage coaches with 30 years of experience, Dave and Ann share the hard-earned but easy-to-apply biblical principles that ensure a strong marriage. Written in a funny and highly relatable dialogue between both husband and wife, Vertical Marriage will guide you toward building a vibrant relationship at every level including communication, conflict, intimacy, and romance—though Dave is still figuring that last one out. Through their unique perspectives, they share an intimate, sometimes hilarious and at times deeply poignant narrative of one couple’s journey to reconnecting with God and discovering the joy and power of a vertical marriage.
For anyone who is married, preparing for marriage, or desperate to save a relationship teetering on the edge of disaster, Dave and Ann offer hope and strategies that really work. Vertical Marriage will give you the insight, applications, and inspiration to reconnect with God together and to transform your marriage to everything you hoped it would be.

My personal review of this material

Not sure about you but my marriage has been far from roses and sunshine , major ups and downs but at the end of the day we are still married and still working on how we should be as a married couple 16 years later.

Dave and Ann did a fantastic job on giving married couples a look into what god wants your marriage to look like, but it take work and lots of it to get to where you want your marriage to be. There are FOUR parts to this book, ” Going Vertical”, “Conflict and Communication”, Intimacy”, and Living Vertical”. My favorites were Part 2 and Part 3 because I got a load of light bulbs going off in my head while reading and will re read this whole book again but with highlighters! This book had me crying, laughing, and then praying while I read certain things. Dave and Ann made this book enjoyable and a hard to put down book once you start reading it. I started reading about 6 am and finished this book about 9 or 10 pm lol. Like I said hard to put down! I highly recommend this book to newly married, seasoned married, and thinking of becoming married, or engaged because I can guarantee you will learn something in this book that will get you to your VERTICAL Marriage .

I received this material free from booklookbloggers in exchange for my honest opinion no mater good or bad.
