This devotional goes back & forth with Tony providing the devotion some days & Lauren providing them on the other. It is always great to receive examples from successful couples on how they have made their marriage work over the years & on how being in the Word & prayer helped in the process. I have every Tony Dungy book so far & I look forward to additional books from both Tony & Lauren in the coming years.

My husband and I have thoroughly enjoyed coming together each night to read this insightful book from a godly & humble couple. The Dungys offer anecdotes, advice, encouragement, and motivation all stemming from their intentional focus of strengthening their marriage and focusing it on the Lord. We had some great, in-depth discussions from the Adventure Applications.
Smoothie71AlabamaAge: 18-24Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Great for couplesMarch 2, 2015Smoothie71AlabamaAge: 18-24Gender: femaleSo I'm not married yet, but to be prepared I picked up this book, The Uncommon Marriage Adventure.
Tony Dungy is such a great man and outspoken about his faith and you know what the old saying is, 'behind every great man is an even greater woman.' Not sure how often that's true, but I think this couple is proof of that somewhat.
This book is written in a devotional type style by two strong Christians. With Scripture and personal stories throughout you'll not be disappointed with it. It feels like a pair of spiritual parents sitting down to tell you how to overcome obstacles they've already encountered. Very helpful and needed today.
If you're in a serious relationship and looking to get married or thinking about it or are already married I would recommend this book to you.
Note: I received this book for free in exchange for a review. All views and opinions expressed are mine.
Carmen5 Stars Out Of 5Great devotional for couples!January 2, 2015CarmenQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I was drawn to this book after my husband recently went to an All Pro Dad conference where Mr. Dungy spoke. He had brought home The Uncommon Marriage, also by Mr. and Mrs. Dungy. This book makes either an excellent companion to that book or as a stand-alone devotional book for couples. It is divided into 16 weeks, with a devotion to do together as a couple each day. Each day is started with a Bible verse and then a discussion portion penned by either Mr. or Mrs. Dungy. Following the discussion section, is a section called Adventure Application which helps reinforce the days topic. Also, the book spends two weeks exploring what the book describes as The Core Principles of an Uncommon Marriage. These principles are:
1. Look to the Bible as your guidebook and to Christ as your living example.
2. Stay in sync spiritually.
3. Manage expectations and appreciate your differences.
4. Work as a team.
5. Practice committed love.
6. Communicate well and often.
7. Dont run away from conflict.
8. Support each other in serving others.
As you can see, all of the principles are important in a healthy, loving marriage. I could easily relate the personal stories in the discussion sections, even though Im not really a sports girl. I think this would be a great book for any married couple, whether they have been married for quite some time or are newlyweds. In fact, it would make a wonderful wedding present to help the couple get a great start be intentional about their marriage.
I received this book for free from Tyndale Publishers in exchange for an honest review. I was not obligated to write a positive review.

Marriage / Devotional
I give The Uncommon Marriage Adventure 5 stars. It is well written with life stories from the authors Tony & Lauren Dungy. It is a great tool to help with life, marriage and family life. Each devotion starts with a core principle and a scripture. Their are 96 core principles. The book is divided into 8 key groups that have worked well for them, their life and marriage. They touch on how the Bible and Christ are living examples on how to live, teamwork, committed love, communication, support and not running from conflict. At the end of each devotion they showed you how to apply the lesson to your life. I really enjoyed this part. On page 8 was a example of how to pray for your wife with scripture from John 3:16. I change it to pray for my hubby and found this to be so humbling. All the examples and prayer ideas are easy to add to your situation, I found them to be easy to use and beneficial. Through out the book there were references to the authors coaching and football career which I am clueless about, but I found they added a humble and honest aspect to their life experiences. They made the book seem more real.
I want to thank the author Tony & Lauren Dungy and Nathan Whitaker, the publisher Tyndale for providing me with this book in exchange for my honest review. I am so grateful for their generosity.
