Jason and Debby Coleman, authors of Discovering Your Amazing Marriage, say their first few years together were the worst. Infidelity, sickness and financial issues threatened their union. But that was almost 24 years ago. Since then, they have developed an amazing marriage. What is the secret to their success? Most importantly, they put God first. Secondly, they know that love is a choice: An amazing marriage versus a mediocre one requires sacrifice and work. Regardless of the problems, they staunchly agreed that divorce is not an option. They also reflected on the spark that initially brought them together and demonstrated thankfulness for each other every day. Discovering Your Amazing Marriage will inspire you to cultivate key elements to ensure a long-lasting marriage.

I was impressed by Discovering Your Amazing Marriage because of the depth and breadth of each chapter. The comprehensive discussions and examples will aid readers in their everyday lives. I was also struck by their willingness to share so much of their personal lives.

They have been leaders in the Awana ministry for almost 20 years and have participated in missionary trips to Rio de Janeiro. The Colemans celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary in 2009.
