Marriages that last over four decades require a lot of grace and hard work. So when one of those couples open up their lives for the whole world to observe within the context of a book, I take notice.
In Don’t Go to Bed Angry—Stay Up and Fight, I loved Deb and Ron’s honest approach to marital conflict, personal stories, and everyday application of biblical truth. Their “rules for having an argument” were obviously birthed out of their own marital conflict and experiences—the good, bad, and the ugly. I look forward to sharing this book with other couples who might need to learn how to fight for their marriages.
