There’s more to marriage than just surviving! Between the Tiger Woods scandal, the Jesse James cheating shocker, and the Gores recent announcement of their split, it feels like we live in a world where it’s impossible to keep marriages strong, stay faithful, and last forever. We all want to keep that thrill alive that we experience during a first kiss or first date but where does that anticipation, overwhelming joy, pure devotion, and bright hope of romance go,once you’re married? Authors Debby and Jason Coleman have experienced their fair share of challenges, including infidelity, and now share their own secrets and meditations on marriage in their new book Discovering Your Amazing Marriage. Jason says, “Within the first six months of our marriage, we had to deal with the consequences of infidelity and the very real possibility of divorce. These things aren’t supposed to happen at all; but if they do, it’s usually later in life when married people drift away from each other. Or so we thought.” Keeping passion alive once the doldrums of daily family life sets in is easier said than done. After having children, moving to a new place, advancing in a career, or experiencing a trauma or loss—marriage can become a habit or even worse, rote duty. “We now know through our own experiences that nothing can destroy a marriage quicker than infidelity, but we also know that we have a story to tell that may encourage couples to stay the course and make their marriage work, no matter what challenges they may face. We are a living testimony of the power of forgiveness and restoration.” We have experienced some terrible challenges in our marriage and have survived...we beat the odds and have chosen to stay together! We have a "rags-to-riches" story that is truly amazing. We have experienced first-hand the power of forgiveness and restoration and we have triumphed! No matter how long you’ve been married, with the timely, honest and spiritually relevant advice in this book, a marriage filled with respect, love, passion, and devotion is within your reach.

Discovering Your Amazing Marriage Jason Coleman; Debby Coleman Available in Paper Back, Kindle and Nookbook 5 Stars When the authors contacted me and asked if I would like to review their book, it sounded as if it would be quite interesting. Beings my church has been having a series that is dealing with this exact same topic, the more I got to reading it seems as if my pastor has read this book. It is amazing how as Christians one could write a book on marriage and another preach on the same subject and have the same ideals. In this day of disposable dishes, diapers, and fast food it seems that too many people seem to think it's alright to have a disposable marriage. He don't like what she does or her friends, She thinks now that they are married she can change him into what she thinks he should be. When one is single they are 1 and 1, He has his friends and hobbies, she has hers. When they are married 1 + 1 = 1. (Gen 2:24 And the two became one flesh.) Think back when you first met your future wife or husband. The woman dressed up, the man put on the smelly aftershave and you all had some wonderful dates. Now that one is married what is there to say you still can't date your wife. Seems once the ring is on the finger and the words I Do are spoken things change in a heartbeat. That should not be. This is an excellent book for everyone to read, whether one is newly married, been married a few years or if you are one of the few that has been in the same marriage for 50+ years. From making plans together to include both husband and wife, to working outside the home, to learn how to communicate with each other and how to protect each other from infidelity. How about intimacy. Yes God created sex to be good between a husband and a wife. I like the way the author wrote the first part of this chapter. I have to say he hit the nail on the head. There is so much to this book that one just needs to get it and read it. Read it together as husband and wife. If this is your first marriage or your second take it to heart and save and protect the marriage you have . I read the book in one afternoon, but it is a book that I will dig back into. Though the book is based on Christian principles and solid biblical teachings if you feel that this would deter you from the book, skip over those parts but do not pass the book up. You can still benefit from the book
