Uncommon Marriage by Tony & Lauren Dungy

About the Book:

What does it take to build a marriage that will last? Tony and Lauren Dungy have together known the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. They fell in love, built a family, and made sports history when Tony became the first African American head coach to win the Super Bowl. Yet they’ve also gone through difficult, relationship-testing setbacks, including job loss and devastating personal tragedy.

In a culture where it seems harder and harder to make marriage last, what has kept the Dungys strong through it all? In Uncommon Marriage, Tony and Lauren share the secrets that hold them together, revealing what they’ve learned so far about being a good husband or wife; getting through times of loss, grief, or change; staying connected despite busy schedules; supporting each other’s dreams and goals; and helping each other grow spiritually.

They offer encouragement and practical advice to equip your marriage to survive tough issues and flourish with joy, purpose, and partnership—in other words, to be a marriage that is truly uncommon.

My Thoughts:

What sold me on this particular book about marriage was the name of the author.  I have a lot of respect for Tony Dungy, and he has obviously proven himself to be an excellent coach.  So, how is his coaching on marriage?

Pretty good!  Tony and Lauren share from personal experience, and they hide nothing.  Every struggle, every positive and every not so positive moment is chronicled in their book.  The reader also gets to learn a lot about Tony's movement within the NFL, and how it affected his family and his marriage.

The wisdom in "Uncommon Marriage" is sound, Biblical advice, and it's advice that has been lived out in several decades of marriage.  Tony and Lauren Dungy are the real deal, and this is a great book to strengthen any marriage.

My thanks to my friends at Tyndale Publishing for my free copy in exchange for an honest review.  I recommend you pick up a copy of "Uncommon Marriage", and check out other books by Tony Dungy while you're at it!

Happy Reading!
