What a moving and inspiring testimony! Justin and Trisha Davis are powerful examples of God’s ability to breathe new life into a marriage that seems to have reached the end. With scriptural insights gained through the Davises’ own fight to save their marriage, Beyond Ordinary encourages every couple to believe that their relationship can become truly extraordinary.
-Jim Daly, President – Focus on the Family
Justin and Trisha share their story with transparency and courage. But this book goes beyond just storytelling. They provide practical and powerful teaching that is applicable to every couple – newlywed or veteran. This resource will greatly strengthen your marriage. I can say that honestly, because it’s done it for mine.
-Natalie Grant, Christian singer/songwriter and 5-Time CMA Female Vocalist of the Year
In this book of searing honesty, Justin and Trisha remind us that marriage, like any other good and beautiful thing, is worth fighting for and cannot be won or kept without the desire to fight for it. In their story you will find your story, or you will find hope for a story that needs healing in its own way.
-John Ortberg, Senior Pastor, Menlo Park Presbyterian Church and author of Who Is This Man?
Ordinary marriages are only one or two steps away from destruction, which is so unfortunate because the God of the universe designed marriage to be far from ordinary. In this book, Justin and Trisha share a story of struggle and hope as they pull back the curtain on what was a tragic marriage that turned into triumph because they were willing to deal with the heart rather than simply trying to repair external issues. I am so thankful that they wrote this book and believe it will help people to stop fighting in their marriage and actually begin fighting for it.
-Perry Noble, Senior Pastor, NewSpring Church and author of Unleash!-Breaking Free from Normalcy
Beyond Ordinary will stretch you. It will challenge you. It will inspire you to keep going. It will ask you to pick each other up and run with grace and purpose. To leave ordinary behind as you move toward extraordinary.
Ordinary is the biggest enemy to a great marriage. Ordinary is characterized by dissatisfaction, misunderstanding, and stale love. Ordinary is the birthplace of adultery. Ordinary is a place where divorce looks better than staying together. Ordinary is the subtle trap that convinces you that your marriage is as good as it will ever get. Ordinary marriages lose hope. Ordinary marriages lose vision. Ordinary marriages give in to compromise.
Ordinary will be defeated with each turn of the page and with the belief that God is fighting for you more than you are fighting for yourself.
