HomeSchool Mom of 4The Hot Dry DesertAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Inspiring, Encouraging Book!September 1, 2014HomeSchool Mom of 4The Hot Dry DesertAge: 25-34Gender: femaleI really got so much out of this book! The theme seemed to be on the importance the small, but seemingly insignificant moments and decisions we make--that these decisions are actually the ones that define you, and define your marriage. The Dungys' story interested me and really caught my interest from the first chapter. The way they used the story of their meeting, their courtship, and their marriage to teach was great! They wove that together well so that it didn't sound too "preachy" but had just the right mix of encouragement, inspiration, and challenge. I think everyone should read this book and I'm fairly certain something in their story will connect with something in yours. It would also be a really great book (along with the study guide) to use for a marriage bible study class. Definitely recommend!

They tell of their wedding, becoming foster and adoptive parents, their own families, moves, homes, death of their son, winning the super bowl, and retirement. They do have a strong bond. Such great faith in those two. They are an admirable couple and a good model for other couples.

bookwormPennsylvaniaAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Great Advice for Married CouplesJuly 14, 2014bookwormPennsylvaniaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Though I usually don't read books like Uncommon Marriage because I am not married or planning to marry, I did find a lot of informative points in this book. The author teaches his readers using amusing stories from his own marriage to explain how couples can make their marriages meaningful and strong. I really liked how he seemed to make a correlation between putting God first and how it made his marriage and faith stronger. The author shares many personal stories on how God helped his marriage not only through the good times but also the rough ones. The author is very honest when he says that marriages are not easy and every couple will go through storms but if they are committed to God and making their marriage work, then it will make the difference in how strong the marriage is. I enjoyed this book so much I gave it to my brother to read in case he and his girlfriend ever decide to get married. I also recommend this book to all newlyweds and those who are engaged because reading it just might make a difference.
Jessica BatesAge: 25-34Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5July 10, 2014Jessica BatesAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 1I'm unsure exactly how to review this book. When I first saw this book on the list for the summer reading program, I assumed it would give advice on a God-centered marriage with selected stories and such from their marriage. What is, in fact, is a memoir of their marriage. I liked their story but the way that they chose to "tell" it was very hard to read at times. It moved very slowly and was at times dull. That being said, they did have some good advice. But again, it was just their story told and then at the very end of this book there was a few pages stating tips on how to have an uncommon marriage with pages referencing examples from their marriage. I was disappointed. They do seem like a wonderful, committed couple, to each other and to the Lord.
reliWIAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5ExcellentJune 26, 2014reliWIAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book was not what I expected. I was expecting more of a principles and applications book with maybe a few stories thrown in for examples. Instead, it was the journey of Tony and Lauren from the day they met until the present. I really enjoyed reading the book. Being an NFL coach put demands on both Tony and Lauren that are different from what most marriages have, but watching how they continued to put God and each other and family first is impressive. Their marriage stood strong and survived the pressure of being public figures. The emphasis they put on taking regular time for each other--for just the two of them is important along with the importance of good communication. I also was impressed with the emphasis on being grateful even when you don't feel like. I needed that encouragement. I would definitely recommend this book to others.
