The Uncommon Marriage Adventure

Dungy, Tony and Lauren. With Whitaker, Nathan. The Uncommon Marriage Adventure: A Daily Journey to Draw You Closer to God and Each Other. carol Stream, IL: Tyndale House Publishers. 2014.

dungyThrough 8 core principles, along with adventures in love, faith and growing closer to God and each other, Tony and Lauren Dungy share personal stories, key Bible verses, and prayers in this inspirational devotional designed to compliment and strengthen an uncommon marriage.

Set up as a daily devotional, the 112 short devotions could be used daily, weekly or with any schedule that works. Trading between core practices (words of wisdom, thoughts, ideas) and the core principles (communication, love, support, team-work), the authors take turns sharing their points of view. I found the style very reader friendly, the Bible verses relevant to marriage, and the stories engaging but my favorite part was the application adventures- putting the principles into practice through different bonding activities/ conversation starters (discussions, spending time with the kids, reading the Bible together). Based on their earlier book, The Uncommon Marriage, this book stands alone fine but could probably be combined to make it an even stronger connection. Great as a Bible Study!
