Four 40-second things you can do
to have serious fun in your marriage.
Marriage is serious (after all, life is serious). But who says marriage can’t be more fun? What would you do to increase the awesome in yours? Take the Your Best Us Challenge (40 seconds a day to do a little something that’s good for your marriage), now through Valentine’s Day.
Here’s how: Every Thursday from January 24 through February 14, check out MarriedPeople on Facebook. Watch the video and take the challenge for the week (don’t worry; the challenge will take about 40 seconds to do). Post a photo or video on Facebook or Instagram (of what you did for the challenge or your spouse’s reaction), using the hashtag #YourBestUsChallenge. (Be sure to make the post public so we’ll find it.) Do this for each of the four weekly challenges, and you’ll receive four downloadable Date Night ideas (with all the instructions to make them great). That’s four free—totally doable—ideas for having some serious fun in your marriage!

How are the marriages in your church?
Americans spend $72 billion annually on weddings. They spend $8 billion every year on honeymoons. There’s something in us that believes two people getting together forever “as one” is a big deal. Ironically, we spend a lot on the wedding, but not so much on the marriage.
Most of us want a great marriage. We just may not know how to get it. The want to is there, but the how to gets pretty confusing.
Enter Your Best Us. No matter where a couple currently finds their “US,” they can experience more moments of awesome and fewer moments of awful. And it’s easier than you think. Their US can become more. Not some cookie cutter, cloned version of someone else’s marriage, but the best version of their US.
Through humor, transparency, biblical wisdom, research, and a massive amount of practicality, Your Best Us guides couples through four, doable, easy-to-understand habits that will help couples become their best US.
PRAISE FOR YOUR BEST US
“I’ve read a lot of marriage books and I LOVE this book. Here’s how I can tell this is a great read on marriage: I have marked up every page. I believe in Ted’s message. The ‘Core 4 Habits’ to a great marriage are practical, life-changing, affirming, and they make sense. I know Ted and Nancie, and what I appreciate most is their absolute authenticity, passion for healthy marriage, and their fun-loving attitude. Do not pass up an opportunity to read this book.”
Jim Burns, President of HomeWord and author of Creating an Intimate Marriage, Closer, and co-author of Getting Ready for Marriage
“As both a leader and an author, Ted Lowe has a priceless skill: he takes something important and very meaningful and purposefully makes it FUN. That’s how he approaches this book—and that’s how he suggests you approach your marriage! This book is packed with game-changing and very practical advice that you will immensely enjoy to help you create a marriage that you will immensely enjoy!”
Shaunti Feldhahn, social researcher and bestselling author of For Women Only and For Men Only
“One of my favorite things about Ted Lowe is his commitment to helping couples do everything they can, proactively, to avoid crises or divorce. Sometimes challenges are outside of our control, but most of the time there are habits we can develop and decisions we can make to build our marriage upon a solid foundation. In Your Best Us, Ted helps couples develop strong habits to set them up for long-term success. Your Best Us is a great read for pre-marrieds, newly marrieds, or any couple who wants to grow their relationship!”
Scott Kedersha, Director of Premarital and Newly Married Ministry at Watermark Church, scottkedersha.com
“If you are looking for the road map to experience your happily ever after, look no further. This is the go-to handbook for any couple looking for a clear-cut strategy on best practices for their marriage, backed by research and founded on the timeless truths found in Scripture. With practical ideas that you can plug and play in your marriage, you are sure to not only experience deeper connection, but inspire your sense of fun too!”
Casey Caston, co-founder of Marriage365.org and co-author of Naked Dinners and Communication that Connects
