Publisher's Summary

He never saw it coming. It was the night of Dave and Ann’s 10th wedding anniversary, and if asked how their marriage was doing, Dave would have said a 9.8 out of 10, and he even guaranteed Ann would say the same. But instead of giving a celebratory kiss, Ann whispered, “I’ve lost my feelings for you.”

Divorce seemed inevitable. But starting that night, God began to reveal to Dave and Ann the most overlooked secret of getting the marriage we are looking for: the horizontal marriage relationship just doesn’t work until the vertical relationship with Christ is first.

As founders of a multicampus church and marriage coaches with 30 years of experience, Dave and Ann share the hard-earned but easy-to-apply biblical principles that ensure a strong marriage. Told in a funny and highly relatable dialogue between both husband and wife, Vertical Marriage will guide you toward building a vibrant relationship at every level including communication, conflict, intimacy, and romance - though Dave is still figuring that last one out. Through their unique perspectives, they share an intimate, sometimes hilarious and at times deeply poignant narrative of one couple’s journey to reconnecting with God and discovering the joy and power of a vertical marriage.

For anyone who is married, preparing for marriage, or desperate to save a relationship teetering on the edge of disaster, Dave and Ann offer hope and strategies that really work. Vertical Marriage will give you the insight, applications, and inspiration to reconnect with God together and to transform your marriage to everything you hoped it would be.

Learned so much!

Part of me really didn't want to read a marriage book, but it popped up as a book I might be interested in. I felt led to read it and very convicted while reading it. But with that said, I know in my heart I need to change my thinking and my ways vertical toward God if I want my marriage of 35 years to ever be different. It's an excellent book and will hold your interest.

Must read!

Everyone who is married or dating should read this book. A glimpse of what every marriage “Will” experience! The simple message is ; don’t forget your first love! If you have return to Him! Only He will satisfy your needs in marriage. God doesn’t give us a marriage to make us happy but to make us Holy. Take the eye off yourself and put it in Him and remember you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you.
