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.
tea and a good bookAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5April 30, 2014tea and a good bookAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Upon finishing Team Us, I immediately planned a reread alongside my husband. Ashleigh Slater writes about marriage with such a deep vulnerability, filling her chapters with personal stories of challenges that she and her husband have experienced, and how they've overcome them. This is a challenging and personal read. It has messed with the status quo of my marriage, pushing some buttons in areas in which I have weaknesses as a wife. Reading this book feels like I'm having dinner with a wise friend who is willing to share her marriage story and intentionally encouraging me to strengthen mine.
Jessica5 Stars Out Of 5April 30, 2014JessicaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I thoroughly enjoyed this book! Ashleigh is very transparent with the common everyday struggles that come about when two lives become one shared life! It is not always easy, but with the right perspective it can be fun and rewarding. This book allows us to share in the beginnings of a treasured marriage as if we are sitting in a cafe having a chat over a cup of coffee. It will encourage you and give you a fresh vision for approaching those "little conflicts" that come up often in marriage.
MandyPAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Fantastic Marriage Encouragement and Easy Read!April 30, 2014MandyPAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Ashleigh has a wonderful, conversational style to her writing. She is able to share meaty Truths of God's Word, apply them beautifully to marriage and do it all in a way that makes me feel like we are sitting across from one another having coffee. While reading through Team Us: Marriage, I was struck by Ashleigh's open writing style and how many times I found myself nodding along in agreement with her over struggles she and her husband faced or triumphs they shared. Chapter seven was one I cried my way through as Ashleigh opened up about difficult times she and her husband Ted experienced. I was surprised at her candid writing, but it allows the reader a peek behind the curtain, so-to-speak, into their lives. Ashleigh speaks with wisdom beyond her years about the realities of being married and the struggles every couple faces. I enjoy also how Ted "chimes in" in each chapter. It gives the writing a humorous, 2-sided balance that makes it easy reading for both husband and wife. Bottom line, I absolutely recommend this book to everyone, married or not. Reading it can be a boon to those anticipating marriage as well as a source of encouragement for those already married.
