My Thoughts:
I was so excited to get the chance to do a review on The Uncommon Marriage Adventure. This 16 week devotional is set up to help guide & redirect ones marriage towards God. Simply working an eight key system of daily passages for couples to work on as well read. I do like that each week at the end on the 7th day we are given The Core Principles of an Uncommon Marriage which is like a mini review for what Core Practices we did. It’s a great reflection for me to see if I was truly paying attention to what I was supposed to be doing for that week, also to reflect on my walk with the lord making sure he is at the center of my relationship. The Dungy’s shared their Honest, Funny real life stories, it was great to see that they are human too an every marriage has it’s own sort of issues from good to bad. This devotional was easy to read, very informative and well written. I did have Laugh out Loud moments through out the book. I do recommend The Uncommon Marriage Adventure to anyone who is married  or thinking about marriage. This devotional can be worked one on one as a couple or even in a small group study. I worked the steps with my fiance. We now have such a great understanding of each other also more love for God in our heart knowing he is truly is at the center of our relationship.
I give The Uncommon Marriage Adventure an overall score of 5 stars
I received this book for free from Tyndale Publishing in return for my Honest review.
