5 Things to Remember as Your Marriage Collides with the Coronavirus

Like you, your spouse is under all sorts of stressors. From WFH to homeschooling to the economy to the lack of hand-sanitizer to having to live with you, the struggle is real.

How Do I Protect My Marriage from COVID-19?

Protecting your marriage from all “this” is possible, powerful, and may be more fun than you think.

“Your Best Night In” Online Event for Couples

Enjoy this date night featuring Dr. Gary Chapman, DeVon and Meagan Good-Franklin, Shaunti Feldhahn, Montell and Kristin Jordan, Jamal and Natasha Miller, Sam and Toni Collier, Ted and Nancie Lowe, Fierce Marriage and Marriage 365! Sponsored by Winshape Marriage, A Greater Story, and Married People.


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 you currently find your “US,” you can experience more moments of awesome and fewer moments of awful. And it’s easier than you think. Your US can become more. Not some cookie cutter, cloned version of someone else’s marriage, but the best version of your 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.




“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,

“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 and co-author of Naked Dinners and Communication that Connects
