Make your conflict count

New book helps couples deal with conflict to create healthy marriages

6/15/2016 || Seattle: It’s a familiar scenario: He doesn’t understand what she’s really upset about, and she has trouble getting him to see her point of view. In every marriage, there is conflict. In their new book, Don’t Go to Bed Angry: Stay Up and Fight (Abingdon Press, June 21, 2016/ ISBN978-1426790935/$14.99), Deb and Ron DeArmond give couples tools to fight fair when conflicts arise.

“Conflict is not the real problem,” note the authors. “It’s how we deal with the conflict that determines where it takes us. Conflict can lead to discovery — greater insight and understanding of our partner’s thoughts, feelings and perspective — or destruction of the relationship. It’s up to us to choose which direction we will go: discovery or destruction.”

Deb DeArmond has more than 30 years of experience teaching adults about communication and conflict resolution, whereas Ron has as many years of Christian counseling, instruction and leadership development, primarily in ministry to men. The book is born out of their combined backgrounds.

Don’t Go to Bed Angry helps couples fight fair, which can lead to discovery and ultimately to stronger marriages. Communication through healthy conflict can produce greater insight and understanding of thoughts, feelings and perspectives that can safeguard relationships.

The authors’ goal for this book is to equip couples with the tools to nurture their relationships to go the distance. “We believe you can build the required skill and knowledge to resolve life’s conflicts in a manner that honors the covenant of your marriage and deepens the relationship — not only between the two of you, but with God as well,” the DeArmonds said.

Don’t Go to Bed Angry includes insights from couples that the authors surveyed and interviewed about their experiences with conflict and its effect on their marriages. As the DeArmonds examined those responses, a pattern emerged. They noted that conflict in marriage tends to fall into six categories, which they organized the book around: burdens, baggage, bridges, barriers, boundaries and blessings. Each one reveals a facet of conflict that brings couples closer to solutions.

“We’ve been married for many years,” the authors said. “Much of what we learned took us longer than we wish it had. We don’t have all the answers or a perfect record in using what we know. What we have acquired through our life experience and through God’s Word is the understanding that marriage is worth fighting for, and you don’t have to be born knowing how to do it.”

Designed to create and support healthy dialogue between husband and wife, Don’t Go to Bed Angry is a tool to help couples fight for their marriages. It offers readers real-life examples, personal testimonies and biblical wisdom. Each chapter concludes with discussion questions, related Scripture passages, journaling prompts and a prayer. Resources include a quick reference list for managing conflict and guidelines for creating vision, values and mission statements.

Don’t Go to Bed Angry is not a book of shoulds; it’s filled with practical ideas, conversation starters and opportunities for self-discovery in every chapter. This gives couples a path, a plan and the promise of God’s word to achieve the marriage they long for: one aligned with God’s word that honors him and produces life in their union.

Advance Praise

“Somewhere between papering over problems and drawing blood lies common ground where healthy couples handle conflict. Kudos to Deb and Ron DeArmond for teaching us how to find this promised land and build healthy homes on it!” —Shellie Rushing Tomlinson, Belle of All Things Southern and author of Heart Wide Open.

“There are not enough resources that talk about honest, creative and relevant conflict resolution. We believers typically avoid conflict or simply pretend that it doesn’t exist . . . because ‘we are supposed to have all the answers.’ In their new book, Don’t Go to Bed Angry: Stay Up and Fight, Deb and Ron bring the issue into the light and give couples real stories and real tools to bring about real peace. The Hendersons need the help found in this book and so do you!” —Paige and Richard Henderson, founder, Fellowship of the Sword

“In Don’t Go to Bed Angry: Stay Up and Fight, Deb and Ron DeArmond deliver a biblically-based book on the topic of marital conflict. Practical exercises will help the reader move away from the potential damage conflict can bring to the discovery that comes from learning to stand together as allies not enemies — even when you don’t see eye-to-eye. We highly recommend this book as a creative guide for any couple, at any stage of life to find alignment with one another — and God — in their marriage.” —Claudia & David Arp, Co-authors, 10 Great Dates to Energize Your Marriage, founders of Marriage Alive International

Don’t Go to Bed Angry has a solid Biblical foundation and is full of wise counsel and great practical tools. Deb and Ron are open and honest as they share from their experiences and those of others. I have been counseling couples for over thirty years, and this great, new title goes immediately to the top of my list of books on how to deal with conflict in marriage and grow your marriage God’s way.” —Kim Kimberling, PhD, author of Seven Secrets to an Awesome Marriage and the leader of the Awesome Marriage Movement

“When my sons were teenagers, they often argued. Finally one day, I sat them on our couch and said, ‘I’m going to teach you how to fight.’ They were shocked. They thought they were experts. I gave a couple of steps to keep their arguments respectful and to help them own their own feelings. In their book, the DeArmonds have set us all down on their own couch and given us the principles to do right what we probably all do, and do wrong. These principles work! The sooner you start, the sooner you reap the benefits.” —Joann Cole Webster, Vice President, Christian Men’s Network

“In our work with couples in crisis for twenty years we have seen the value of having conflict resolution skills. ‘Fights’—loud and silent—can become long lasting wars with much devastation. In Don’t Go To Bed Angry, Deb and Ron give us a pattern to develop essential skills to resolve inevitable marital conflict. Read this book and let God guide the application to your marriage. Then you can begin the ‘fight for’ your marriage. It’s so worth it!” —Mona Shriver, author of Unfaithful and co-founder of Hope & Healing Ministries

Reviews

  • ‘DON’T GO TO BED ANGRY’

    Although I think this is a worthwhile and informative read. If you’re anything like me, if you’re going to fight…you’re going to fight. It doesn’t have to be nasty, but I like to get certain points across (particularly involving hypocrisy). I do think that a lot of what is in the book is spot-on if you intend to have a polite fight. I liked how religious was incorporated into the book in an engaging way. It didn’t feel forced on the reader.

  • ‘DON’T GO TO BED ANGRY’ REVIEW

    Don’t Go to Bed Angry: Stay Up and Fight is a really nice book to help you work out conflicts and reach resolutions in your marriage. It really helps you to learn how to fight fair. All to often we get caught up in a vicious cycle of being hurt, and lashing out at the one who hurt us.

  • GREAT MARRIAGE RESOURCE!

    I think this book is very interesting. It lists many statistics and deep looks into how each couple functions. (Since every couple is vastly different.) Each chapter includes questions to discuss with your spouse, to get communication flowing and to understand one another better. It is encouraged to use a journal along with this study book, so as to keep track of thoughts and special notes readers found beneficial. The chapters then end with a prayer.

  • ‘DON’T GO TO BED ANGRY: STAY UP AND FIGHT’ BY DEB DEARMOND & RON DEARMOND {A LITFUSE PUBLICITY BOOK BLOG TOUR & REVIEW}

    This book is not about being hateful or sinful, in fact, a quote from the book states, “The Bible is clear that it is possible to be angry without it becoming sinful.” This book is about dealing with your disagreements, anger, and pain in a healthy manner rather than simply dismissing them and pretending they don’t exist. And everyone at some point and time will disagree, even the happiest of married couples.

    No matter where you are in your marriage, I’m sure you fight. We all do, right? We all have our issues. In this book we learn the right way to handle conflict, and base it on Biblical truths. Even if you feel your marriage is beyond help, it’s not. This book is here to help as you fight to survive your marriage.

  • ‘DON’T GOT TO BED ANGRY’

    I found this book to have good, solid advice on dealing with conflict in a marriage. Having a strategy in mind to diffuse the natural tendency of fighting to win at all costs, is a brilliant idea. This book gets down to the nitty-gritty of dealing with conflict BEFORE the conflict begins. This is an excellent book that I highly recommend.

    Deb DeArmond has wrapped up communication, has made it very easy to accomplish within the boundaries of marriage if you follow a few rules that she has laid out, like fighting fair, fighting safe *no name calling, and fighting with confidence. so really you aren’t fighting. you are effectively communicating.

  • BUY TWO COPIES & GO THROUGH WITH YOUR SPOUSE {EXCELLENT RESOURCE FOR YOUR MARRIAGE}

    I was drawn to get this book because my husband & I are in ministry and often find ourselves building friendships and mentoring younger couples (we have been married 19 years and are in our 40’s). Don’t Go to Bed Angry: Stay Up and Fight is truly, truly a must read for couples who have difficulty navigating marriage or find they just don’t connect in the way they hoped or desired. And, while I got this book as a resource, it is certainly a book which provided me with some great ideas and reminders within my own marriage!

  • ‘DON’T GO TO BED ANGRY: STAY UP AND FIGHT’ BY DEB & RONALD DEARMOND *CHRISTIAN MARRIAGE REVIEW*

    Each chapter is fairly short, like about 6-8 pages long with end of the chapter questions for each spouse, journaling questions, a scripture reference, and a prayer. This book and the journaling sections can be read together with a spouse or alone.

    I felt like this book was very practical, could easily be understood, and easy to read. The chapters are short so you don’t have to spend a lot of time with reading and doing questions. This book could certainly be a book club selection or marriage help book to be spread out over the course of several weeks.

    Not every marriage is perfect so that is why I chose to read this book. Yes, some nights that we fight I just want to ignore it and go to bed but this book taught me that it is okay to fight and there are techniques to get through it. When you care about your marriage this is a good book to read. The authors give you plenty of resources and support through those difficult times during your marriage. This is not a love story, more of a self-help book but definitely worth it.

    This book isn’t a manual on how to control your spouse, get even, or change him/her. This is a book to use together, to better the way you communicate during the tough moments. It will help both of you understand your mindsets and how you tick when you’re angry. Don’t Go to Bed Angry, gets into the thick of what your fighting styles are and gives Biblical basis on how to reform, regroup, and approach disagreements in way that won’t tear you two apart. Being that it’s coming from a married couple, you won’t have to worry about this book being one-sided. Trust me-they’re laying it all out for the BOTH of you.

    This is the kind of book you need to read with your spouse. My parents always told me never to go to bed angry….and they never did. This is not a mindless read, but it is an easy read with only nine chapters broken down into six categories. Each section ends with an informative “Put On The Gloves” summary & discussion with “He Said/She Said”, “God Said”, and “Prayer”. That was the selling point on this book for me. As a pastor, married to a pastor this is the kind of book we both need in our libraries at home and at church. I loved it!

I like how each chapter is written in very easy to understand terms and at the end of each chapter has questions to think about, process, journal and then have a discussion with your spouse.

  • EXCELLENT BOOK!

    The main premise of this book is how to communicate in a marriage and tools on how to resolve conflict effectively. I honestly wish this book existed years ago.

    If you don’t know how to fight fairly, or resolve conflict, you are going to find yourself in a very precarious situation. Don’t God To Bed Angry can help as it is a guidebook and will teach you how to communicate and do marriage successfully.

    This is by far one of the best marriage books I have read in years. I give five stars, but if I could give it more, I would. I will be referring to this book and recommending it to everyone.

  • OPEN COMMUNICATION—VITAL FOR A HEALTHY MARRIAGE!

    Open communication—vital for a healthy marriage!

    Marriages that last over four decades require a lot of grace and hard work. So when one of those couples open up their lives for the whole world to observe within the context of a book, I take notice.

    In Don’t Go to Bed Angry—Stay Up and Fight, I loved Deb and Ron’s honest approach to marital conflict, personal stories, and everyday application of biblical truth. Their “rules for having an argument” were obviously birthed out of their own marital conflict and experiences—the good, bad, and the ugly. I look forward to sharing this book with other couples who might need to learn how to fight for their marriages.

  • ‘DON’T GOT TO BED ANGRY’

    My husband and I did several sessions of ore-marital counseling before we were married, so a lot of the ideas in this book aren’t totally foreign to me. That said, it has been about 6 years since we went through a lot of that stuff, so it was nice to have a refresher course! I appreciate the message that this book has about fighting fair, communicating (I think this was my favorite part, since they have some great tools for communicating better!), and taking stock of how baggage has affected each spouse. I also love that Deb and Ron are open and honest about their experiences and how that has shaped their message.

    So, whether you have been married for a while or are just tying the knot, I think this is an excellent book to read and apply! I think it would make a great gift for newlyweds.

    I wish they had written this book 30 years ago! Lot’s of insight and wisdom. I loved the subtitle Stay Up and Fight this is so true and so smart. I’ve always remembered folks advising me not to go to bed angry. But never had I received the advise to Stay Up and Fight but to me it makes sense to go over the conflict and try to workout whatever it is. Maybe ending the whole thing with praying and going to bed less angry is the only option but it’s a good option.

  • AN ESSENTIAL READ FOR ALL MARRIED COUPLES!

    As a pastor who has worked with many couples before marriage, during marriage and at crisis points in marriage I have come to learn common challenges in marriage that are important to focus on. By far the two biggest factors are conflict resolution and communication.

    Don’t Go to Bed Angry (Stay up and Fight) is full of practical insight and solid truth to help you learn how to fight fair and recognize who the enemy is – and isn’t – in your relationship. And ultimately, the most important aspect of this book is how it points you individually and as a couple to Jesus and teaches you how to make a plan for your marriage with Him at the center of it. A must-have for any newly-weds, married-for-a-whiles, or barely-still-marrieds. There is hope, and Deb & Ron DeArmond help you fight for it.

  • ‘DON’T GO TO BED ANGRY’ REVIEW

    I loved this book. It is honest, it is realistic, and it is a great read. I think it is an awesome book for couples to read in order to gain a better understanding of how to fight – scripturally! We’re human, and we’re going to argue, so the best thing we can do is figure out how to love each other through the arguments and most of all, keep the focus on God.

  • ‘DON’T GO TO BED ANGRY: STAY UP AND FIGHT’ BY DEB DEARMOND AND RONALD G DEARMOND

    This particular book didn’t impress or excite me. The title sure gets the reader’s attention. And I do agree that couples need to talk through their conflicts. That was a major point of the book I totally agreed with. I agree that marriages can crumble if either the husband or wife- or both- will not discuss hurts and problems. But some of the advice in the book included to much arguing which I didn’t agree with. I understood where the authors were coming from because their personality types lead to argument. But more peaceable and loving people shouldn’t get the impression that they need more arguing to make their marriage work! In short, this book has a lot of good and will probably help many couples who need more vocalization in their marriage.

  • ‘DON’T GO TO BED ANGRY: STAY UP AND FIGHT’

    I really liked this little book. It isn’t a book that I kept reading but I did go back to it and study it quite a bit. I liked how it talked about focusing on the present and not the past. Because does anything good really come from bringing up old comments, actions or maybe the people that were in their lives? …I don’t think so. It mentions baggage and the whole, he said she said bit. It has questions through out the book that you can ask yourself and each other! With verses through the book and how you can approach this situations and dilemmas.

  • ‘DON’T GO TO BED ANGRY’ {A LITFUSE PUBLICITY GROUP REVIEW}

    Overall, this is an excellent book for working out conflict, but I found it a little lacking in discussion of some Biblical concepts of marriage and how they tie into our conflicts and their resolution. This reads like a work of psychology with some Bible tied in, and I would have referred a book about Biblical marriage and conflicts and the psychology and psychological techniques to be in the background.
