I Choose You Today By Deb DeArmond

Married for nearly 38 years, author Deborah DeArmond and her husband have made the spoken declaration, “I choose you today” a regular part of their communication. It’s when we least feel like saying it that we need to remind ourselves that love is a choice, not a feeling. I Choose You Today features 31 scriptural principles that support marriage and help couples develop healthy biblically based behavior.
Built on an introductory anecdotal story, each chapter has an inspirational takeaway of not only what to do, but how to begin applying the principles immediately. Thought provoking questions create talking points for couples to explore their own choices and experiences in each area serve to generate open dialogue of discovery. I Choose You Today is not a book of "shoulds," but one of clearly identified choices that each individual can make to grow their marriage and align it with the word of God. Every saying ends with a conventional wisdom quote.

This was a super encouraging book to me.
I think everyone should read it even before you get married and need it. It has so much sound advice and biblical advice that you can't help but to heed to.
I love the stories that Deb tells in each chapter. They let you know she is a real person and has a big heart.
The tips Deb gives through out the book are great.
If you want a marriage that will last the test of time then I would suggest picking up a copy of this book.
I gave this book 5 stars and highly recommend it. (It would make a fantastic wedding gift).
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for my honest review.


  1. Sounds like a fantastic book to read and keep! I love how she says, I choose you today. We do have that choice. We can choose to forgive each other and make our marriage work instead of the alternative. Today is our Anniversary of 11 years. I Choose You Today, my dear hubby!
