Beyond Ordinary

I received a copy of Beyond Ordinary by Justin and Trisha Davis from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
How safe is your marriage? The answer may surprise you. The biggest threat to any marriage isn’t infidelity or miscommunication. The greatest enemy is ordinary. Ordinary marriages lose hope. Ordinary marriages lack vision. Ordinary marriages give in to compromise. Ordinary is the belief that this is as good as it will ever get. And when we begin to settle for ordinary, it’s easy to move from “I do” to “I’m done.”

Justin and Trisha Davis know just how dangerous ordinary can be. In this beautifully written book, Justin and Trisha take us inside the slow fade that occurred in their own marriage—each telling the story from their own perspective. Together, they reveal the mistakes they made, the work they avoided, the thoughts and feelings that led to an affair and near divorce, and finally, the heart-change that had to occur in both of them before they could experience the hope, healing, and restoration of a truly extraordinary marriage.

I'm sure we all want the best marriage we can have.  I know I do.  I never thought about my marriage being ordinary until I read this book.  Luckily I haven't had to deal with any of the problems Trisha did but we all have problems from time to time.  I really liked the Biblical references that were given.  I have to give it to Trisha I don't think I could have done what she did.
