This is not an ordinary marriage book. Justin & Trisha Davis know all too well the dangers of settling for an ordinary marriage. Their own failure to recognize the warning signs almost resulted in the end of their marriage, their family, and their ministry. Now, with disarming transparency, they give readers a rare glimpse into the slow fade that eventually led to the near destruction of everything they held dear.
Using a compelling “he said, she said” approach, Justin and Trisha share two sides of the same story, exposing the seemingly insignificant comments and decisions couples make every day that can dramatically alter the course of a marriage. They also share the invaluable lessons they learned that helped them restore their relationship and transform their ordinary marriage into an extraordinary one!
It’s your marriage. Why would you settle for anything less?
In this book of searing honesty, Justin & Trisha remind us that marriage, like any other good and beautiful thing, is worth fighting for. In their story you will find your story, or you will find hope for a story that needs healing in its own way.

Everyone likes a good love story. But many of us spend our lives slightly disappointed in the love story we’re trying to live. Beyond Ordinary is what you’ve been looking for if you want to ignite your relationship to become what God intended for you to have.

How safe is your marriage? The answer may surprise you. The biggest threat to any marriage isn’t infidelity or miscommunication. The greatest enemy is ordinary. Ordinary marriages lose hope. Ordinary marriages lack vision. Ordinary marriages give in to compromise. Ordinary is the belief that this is as good as it will ever get. And when we begin to settle for ordinary, it’s easy to move from “I do” to “I’m done.”
Justin and Trisha Davis know just how dangerous ordinary can be. In this beautifully written book, Justin and Trisha take us inside the slow fade that occurred in their own marriage—each telling the story from their own perspective. Together, they reveal the mistakes they made, the work they avoided, the thoughts and feelings that led to an affair and near divorce, and finally, the heart-change that had to occur in both of them before they could experience the hope, healing, and restoration of a truly extraordinary marriage.
An amazing book written beautifully as it is a wonderful explanation of how to carry relationships.
This book takes you through the personal journey of the authors, through pain to a healthier marriage. A wonderful book to read.
