Publisher's Description

He never saw it coming. It was the night of Dave and Ann’s tenth wedding anniversary and if asked how their marriage was doing, Dave would have said a 9.8 out of 10 and he even guaranteed Ann would say the same. But instead of giving a celebratory kiss, Ann whispered, "I’ve lost my feelings for you."

Divorce seemed inevitable. But starting that night, God began to reveal to Dave and Ann the most overlooked secret of getting the marriage we are looking for: the horizontal marriage relationship just doesn’t work until the vertical relationship with Christ is first.

As founders of a multi-campus church and marriage coaches with 30 years of experience, Dave and Ann share the hard-earned but easy-to-apply biblical principles that ensure a strong marriage. Written in a funny and highly relatable dialogue between both husband and wife, Vertical Marriage will guide you toward building a vibrant relationship at every level including communication, conflict, intimacy, and romance—though Dave is still figuring that last one out. Through their unique perspectives, they share an intimate, sometimes hilarious and at times deeply poignant narrative of one couple’s journey to reconnecting with God and discovering the joy and power of a vertical marriage.

For anyone who is married, preparing for marriage, or desperate to save a relationship teetering on the edge of disaster, Dave and Ann offer hope and strategies that really work. Vertical Marriage will give you the insight, applications, and inspiration to reconnect with God together and to transform your marriage to everything you hoped it would be.

Publisher Summary

The night of their tenth wedding anniversary, Dave and Ann Wilson concluded their special date by going to "park" in the parking lot of the church they were about to start together - at least that was Dave's plan. Then Ann said the words that had been burning in her mind over the past year, "I've lost feelings for you."

Divorce seemed inevitable but starting that night, God began to illuminate to both Ann and Dave the mostly overlooked secret to a healthy marriage: you cannot sustain a horizontal relationship between husband and wife until the vertical relationship with Christ is healthy.

Today, as co-founding pastors of a megachurch and an NFL chaplain, Dave and Ann share the hard-earned but easy-to-do lessons and principles that will ensure a strong vertical marriage. With a unique style and a brand-new perspective on marital health, Vertical Marriage will guide you to building a vibrant relationship in every area from conflict resolution to romance.

Editorial Reviews

If your marriage isn't vertical, then it's just a matter of time before your relationship will pay the price. Or...you could read this book and transform your marriage into a page-turning, smoking-hot, this-is-more-like-it love story. Your call.
We athletes invest countless hours of time and money into giving ourselves the greatest chance of not just success but greatness. Taking the time to read this book will do for your marriage what all great athletes do for their careers--find the people who are the absolute best at what they do and allow them to pour into every part of you as an athlete. This book will radically change you as a person and a partner, and, like Tiffany and me, you'll become a part of a marriage that thrives because of these teachings and principles. If you want your marriage to be different, Vertical Marriage by Dave and Ann Wilson is the difference maker.
As a professional athlete, I utilize experts in every facet of my career to be the best. Striving to be the best, of course, doesn't stop on the field. Elise and I want the most fulfilling marriage we can have, and Vertical Marriage, written by two relationship experts, shows us how to have it by striving to be vertically aligned with Christ. Elise and I trust Dave and Ann Wilson as true experts and mentors--as a couple who has been through it all.
I had an idea that I could transform my husband into the man I wanted him to be. By the grace of God, Dave and Ann Wilson came into my life. I came to see that my husband didn't need to be fixed; my own personal view did. With their guidance I was able to refocus, and fifteen years later, we're still putting the Do Not Disturb sign on the door every night!
I think what I love most about my friends Dave and Ann Wilson is their honesty, coupled with their passion for couples to experience marriage as God intends it. Wherever you are in your relationship, Vertical Marriage will move you closer together as you learn how to go vertical together.
Vertical Marriage will provide a virtually life-changing message for all couples seeking God's presence in their marriage. It's a very entertaining read packed with real-life experiences that all married couples can relate to. Dave and Ann Wilson provide dual perspectives that blend seamlessly into the singular concept of a vertical marriage.
Dave and Ann Wilson have a unique ability to authentically reveal their scars, glorifying God as the centerpiece throughout the process. Their impact on our marriage is immeasurable, and we are eternally grateful for both of them.
One of the reasons I have a healthy marriage today is because of how Pastor Dave and Ann Wilson poured into me as a teenager. As someone who spent my high school years in their church, they modeled an authentic and persevering marriage centered on Christ. Dave and Ann are transparent, wise, and relatable. You will get to be a 'fly on the wall' as they share their stories and hard-won insight. Vertical Marriageis not about trying harder; it's about trying again. I'm so glad they tried again and again. Our marriage shapes future generations. Let this book encourage you, no matter what season you're in.
It's rare to have a great marriage. It's rare to be a great communicator. Put those things together, and you have the right book for the right person from the right authors. I'm a fan of Dave and Ann Wilson and Vertical Marriage. They have helped me, and they will help you too.
My favorite marriage speakers finally wrote a book--one I've been asking them to write since I first heard them speak on stage almost ten years ago. The Wilsons are the real deal, and reading Vertical Marriage gives us a peek into their life and marriage, but not in a stuffy Christian way where you listen to some pastor who doesn't really let you into their real world. This book isn't like others that seem far from obtainable. You'll get practical advice and wisdom from a couple who has gone the distance and are willing to help you learn from their mistakes so you don't make them. This book will encourage you and may even leave you feeling good about where you're at in your marriage, not just overwhelm you with depressing news and more work to do.
Dave and Ann Wilson are amazing at breaking down how and why to do marriage right. Not only is the information in Vertical Marriage legit, but it works. They know how to make it fun. I'm also amazed that Dave finally sat still long enough to write it all down!
Dave and Ann Wilson have been gifted by God to speak into the hearts of marriages across this country. We've been blessed to sit under and learn relationship principles from the Wilsons for three years, and we still seek their counsel today. What a blessing Vertical Marriage will be to countless couples who will experience in print what so many have experienced in person through their church, their speaking ministry, and their ministry as chaplains for the Detroit Lions for more than thirty years. Their transparency, commitment to biblical marriage, and pertinent stories will convict, challenge, and encourage everyone who reads this book.
