I Choose You Today: 31 Choices to Make Love Last by Deb Dearmond Litfuse Blog Tour

About the book: 

I Choose You Today: 31 Choices to Make Love Last (Abingdon Press, January 2015)

Married for nearly 38 years, author Deborah DeArmond and her husband have made the spoken declaration, "I choose you today" a regular part of their communication. It's when we least feel like saying it that we need to remind ourselves that love is a choice, not a feeling. I Choose You Today features 31 scriptural principles that support marriage and help couples develop healthy biblically based behavior.

Built on an introductory anecdotal story, each chapter has an inspirational takeaway of not only what to do, but how to begin applying the principles immediately. Thought provoking questions create talking points for couples to explore their own choices and experiences in each area serve to generate open dialogue of discovery. I Choose You Today is not a book of "shoulds," but one of clearly identified choices that each individual can make to grow their marriage and align it with the word of God. Every saying ends with a conventional wisdom quote.

My thoughts:  
I love how this book was broken down into 31 separate chapters with ways to connect and questions to ask yourself and your spouse.  Even  more, I appreciated how the author encouraged the reader to go to the chapters that felt right to them instead of following the order given.  It makes so much more sense for people to address the issues that are important to them and their relationships instead of following a set in stone plan.  Each chapter starts with an example of a couple showing the issue and then how things can be different.  I loved that the author's husband proposed to her again years later, letting her know that he continued to choose her even after decades of marriage.
