Team Us: Marriage Together by Ashleigh Slater Book Review and Giveaway

In Team Us, Ashleigh Slater shared the importance of striving to have a marriage that is focused on unity and centered on Jesus and His teachings. Ashleigh and her husband, Ted have been married for eleven years. She strongly believes that husband and wife should be on the same team and they must work hard on fighting to keep their marriage together. She begins the book by looking at the first couple in the Bible, Adam and Eve. God stated that it isn’t good for man to be alone and He meant for us to have a God ordained marriage and be united and committed to our spouse. When sin entered the picture it changed everything and it has become much more difficult to stay together under a marriage covenant. Throughout the book, she explains key principles to help you strengthened your marriage. 


I would recommend this life changing book to every marriage couple, newly wed, recently engaged, and single people wanting to prepare for their future marriage. I’m currently single and not married and this book taught me a lot about marriage and how to strengthen my future marriage. One of the key principles, Ashleigh Slater taught readers was why grace is crucial especially in your marriage. Like God freely gives us grace we must also freely give it to our spouse. I personally think this sometimes can seem the most challenging particularly when our spouse lets us down or hurts us. When we are tempted to continue fighting with our spouse, imagine a concept of grace could help heal and strengthen our marriage. I also liked how on one of their first dates, Ashleigh and Ted wrote down a list of qualities they wanted to see in their relationship. And they tried to stick to them throughout their relationship which eventually led to marriage. I also enjoyed how she also had “Ted says” section throughout the chapters and it benefited to see how Ted felt at times. I also believe that readers will get a lot out of the “Us Time” at the end of each chapter featuring questions for couples to answer together. If you’re looking for an amazing book to help improve your marriage, then read this one!
