{{Book Review}} Don't Go to Bed Angry: Stay Up and Fight

We've all been there. He doesn't understand what she's really upset about. He thinks she blows things out of proportion. Neither of you can agree on the right course of action. In every marriage, there is conflict. And with every conflict, there is a choice for resolution. Will you ignore the issue until it seemingly goes away? Or will you work together to find peace? 

In Don't Go to Bed Angry, Deb and Ron DeArmond give you permission to fight. Marriage is worth fighting for. Conflict isn't the problem, after all; the real issue is how we deal with the conflict. Combining a healthy dose of personal experience with relationship-affirming biblical wisdom, Deb and Ron demonstrate how communication through conflict can lead to greater insight and understanding of thoughts, feelings, and perspectives that can safeguard--and even strengthen--your relationship. Immensely practical features including worksheets, discussion questions, callouts, and prayers make this a definitive go-to resource to help you start fighting--together--for your marriage

*My Review*
Don’t Go to Bed Angry: Stay up and Fight is packed full of practical wisdom to help you 1) learn how to fight fair & 2) recognize who the enemy is(& isn't) in your relationship. The most important aspect of this book is how it points you individually and as a couple to Jesus and shows you how to make a plan for your marriage with HIM at the wheel. This book is a must-have for any newly-marrieds, those who have been married for awhile and even though who are having a rocky time in their marriage and aren't sure they even want to STAY married. 

Just know that THERE IS HOPE, and Deb & Ron DeArmond help you fight for it.

There nine chapters in this book and they are broken down into six categories: 
  1. Burdens
  2. Baggage
  3. Bridges
  4. Barriers
  5. Boundaries
  6. Blessings

Each chapter includes, easy to understand information and effective guidance, plus insight from surveys the authors conducted and from conversations they had with couples who willingly shared their experiences with Deb & Ron. All of the chapters end with a section called “Put on the Gloves” which have questions to complete on your own and then talk about together as a couple, as well as a prayer for you to pray together.
