SuzanneGosselinColorado Springs, COAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Required Reading for Young MarriedsJune 1, 2014SuzanneGosselinColorado Springs, COAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4So often young couples are warned that marriage is "hard work." I remember feeling a little daunted by the prospect, at 31, when my husband and I tied the knot. But along with the work comes so many amazing benefits: the love and support of another person, the funny misunderstandings and lifelong memories, the meaningful talks about hopes and dreams. In Team Us: Marriage Together, author Ashleigh Slater paints a balanced picture of the joys and challenges of marriage. Instead of viewing the less appealing parts of marriage (such as conflict and loss) as cons, Slater encourages couples to embrace all aspects of marriage as an adventure to become the incredible team God designed you and your spouse to be. Refreshingly candid with insightful side notes from the author's husband, Ted, Team Us is an encouraging read that should be required reading for young married couples!
HeatherMinnesotaAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great about on marriage being a TEAM effort!!June 1, 2014HeatherMinnesotaAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Team Us is written in a way that is easy to read & apply to your marriage. It encourages discussion on important topics with great questions at the end of each chapter. This would be a great book to read with your spouse or even small group. I found myself laughing out loud as Ashleigh compares marriage to curling. There are TOO many great examples, stories & quotes that I highlighted to share. But I really appreciated the chapter about friendships, we just moved to a new community & need to build a new circle of friends. I can't say enough about Team Us - just buy the book you won't be disappointed!!
salinabeasleyAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5It's About TIME!May 31, 2014salinabeasleyAge: 25-34Gender: femaleChristian couples, I regret to say, aren't always all that honest about their marital woes. Major rifts or minor squabbles are usually not the topic of chatter in the church lobby. Which is why Ashleigh's book is so refreshing! She so bravely tells her and Ted's story and the stories of other couples who have had to muscle through the stuff of marital oneness (which anyone who has been married longer than 5 minutes knows is no easy feat). It's about TIME someone piped in with honesty, transparency, and depth. Most married readers will be able to say, "I've SO done that" or "I've SO said that". Prepare to relate.
JessmadeitAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A Must read! Highly recommend!May 29, 2014JessmadeitAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I Loved this book! I usually read fiction, but got totally hooked on the author's conversational style of writing! I came away with the same connected feeling with Ashleigh as I do when I sink into a fictional character. Making personal connections with everyday real life and the transparency into her marriage has really helped me to translate the suggestions from the pages to my own relationship with my husband. I have already recommended this book to several couples and will be including this as a wedding present in the near future for young couples. The team approach and sports analogies make it easy for men to relate. Highly recommend for newlyweds or those that have been in trenches together for many years!!
Ginny HAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Like Having Coffee with an Old FriendMay 7, 2014Ginny HAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Ashleigh has a fantastic writing style that immediately grabs your attention from page 1. She is incredibly transparent as she shares wisdom she has learned over the course of her marriage. Her husband adds an extra dose of humor as he inserts his thoughts about what she is writing about at various points in each chapter.
You won't want to miss hearing how they met, what in the world the Olympic sport of curling has to do with marriage, and how they overcome some incredibly tough moments.
I, like another reviewer, am hoping to go through the book a second time with my husband, and I look forward to the questions she provides at the end of each chapter that help the reader apply the material to his/her own life.
Ashleigh has a home run with this book, and I am certain that marriages will be strengthened if couples take the time to digest and apply the suggestions she provides.
