I Choose You Today: 31 Choices to Make Love Last (Abingdon Press, January 2015)

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.

  • I CHOOSE YOU TODAY

    I Choose You Today is a well-written reminder that marriages are not exactly ‘made in heaven’. It takes time, willingness and a whole lot of daily choices to make a marriage meaningful. Loving and living with your spouse takes making a daily choice.

    The book, filled with personal stories, tips and scripture references and conventional wisdom, can be used as a devotional and a couple or a study group can work through the questions provided at the end. I like that the author handled sometimes difficult issues like communication styles, intimacy, personal insecurities, etc.

    I Choose You Today would make a perfect gift for a Christian couple especially those starting a life together.

  • I CHOOSE YOU TODAY: 31 CHOICES TO MAKE LOVE LAST BY DEB ARMOND

    Deb Armand shares timely wisdom in I Choose You Today. In a world where the slightest of infractions can break a marriage apart, Deb reminds us that LOVE IS AN ACT… it’s a CHOICE we must make on a daily basis, especially when our loved one is getting on our last nerve.
    “Spend your time listening deeply, noticing, and bringing out the best in the person sitting across from you. This is where the love magic happens.”
    Isn’t this what we do when we are first dating… we show them our best side… we listen deeply as we are getting to know that and we do our best to bring out the best in them. But when the weight of the world is upon us and the routines of life have worn us down, it’s like we just don’t even care anymore.

  • I CHOOSE YOU TODAY {BOOK REVIEW}

    I Choose You Today” was a great read. It is applicable to the unmarried, engaged and those who have been married for several year.

    I love how the book was broken into small sections. I know that at times I can struggle to read a book with large chapters but committing to read just a few pages a day felt very easy. It was also nice that the book doesn’t need to be read from start to finish. You can easily pick and choose which sections to read. I found the questions and prayers at the end of the chapter to be very helpful. They gave me something to think about through the day and guided my prayer time. The format of this book is perfect for reading alone, as a couple, small groups and bible studies.

    My favorite part of the book was the emphasis on the fact that every day we make a choice. Looking at love as so much more than something we feel.

  • STRENGTHEN YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH DEB DEARMAND

    It may seem a bit strange to my regular readers that I am reviewing a book on marriage. Having failed at too many relationships to count I actually kind of think perhaps I am best suited to discuss a book on marriage. As I’m typing this I’m hearing the Priest in The Princess Bride just beginning his discussion of “Mawage. Mawage is wot bwings us togeder tooday. . . . ” A bit off topic but true, nonetheless ;-)

    So friends, marriage is what brings us here today. Are you in one? Want to be in one? Planning one? Thinking one day, someday in a far-away distant future you’d like to be in one? Then this book is for you.

    Thirty-one chapters. Each dedicated to how you can make a choice to love your spouse, fiancée or significant other. It’s not a book to read through all at once.

  • GREAT FORMAT FOR DAILY REMINDERS!

    The format of this book is very conducive to daily reading along with your devotional time. The chapters are very short and can easily be finished before your first cup of coffee.
    I love the concept of the daily choice in marriage. Even with two very easy going people, there will still be bumps along the road and I love that this book affirms that every day is an opportunity to make a choice to do something good for your marriage.

  • I CHOOSE YOU TODAY BY DEB DEARMOND

    Love is an action, a choice we must make every day in our relationships and not just on the day we said “yes” to him or “I do” before all of our friends.

    Deb DeArmond‘s latest release encourages couples to make the declaration “I Choose You Today” a regular part of their marriage communication. Using specific examples from her own life, Deb shows couples how they can choose to pursue, love, bless, honor, trust, serve, submit and more every day.

    Each chapter opens with a Scripture verse and closes with a prayer and questions for either discussion (in a small group or with your spouse) or personal journaling.

  • 31 THINGS THAT SHAPE A RELATIONSHIP.

    We choose our spouses.
    We choose to pursue them, respond to them, and delight in them.
    We choose to be faithful and honest with them, to remain open and true.
    Then we marry them.
    And too often, we forget to choose them any more.

    Deb DeArmond makes the case that Love is nourished, protected, and preserved by choosing the same spouse over and over again, daily.

    We need reminder far more than we need new revelation, and this book is a gentle and plain-speaking reminder.
    All these concepts will feel too simple at first- “Don’t you have anything more powerful?”- but if I want a strong and gracious relationship, these 31 choices seem like the necessary lifeblood to me.

  • VERY IMPORTANT CHOICES TO MAKE

    We all make thousands of choices everyday. Simple choices like what to wear or what to eat. Big choices like where to go to college or what kind of car to buy. Meaningful choices like how to respond to a negative comment or when is the right time to speak and when you should listen. In Deb DeAromond’s book I Choose You Today, she describes 31 Biblical choices that the reader can make in their marriage to make love last.

    I have been using this book as a daily devotional – each day reading a chapter and trying to live that concept out in my marriage. Each chapter is about 5 pages long and includes an explanation of the choice for the day, a short example of how that choice can play out, Biblical references to support the choice, talking questions and a prayer.

  • I CHOOSE YOU TODAY | DEB DEARMOND

    This is a great inspirational read — and it can be applied to anyone… couples, families, friends.

    Each chapter has a new idea to apply to your relationship… choosing to accept God’s word… choosing to love you, bless you, honor you, trust you, forgive you…

    These aren’t just words, and they aren’t always easy to do. But you can make a choice every day — every week — every month — to do something, even when it’s difficult, to validate your relationship, to make your love last.

    Just think… if every day, you and your spouse both chose to love, honor, bless and forgive — if every day was a good day because of your choices, marriages would become stronger and last forever.

    Don’t rush into relationships; and once you’re committed to someone, choose every day to make it the best relationship…

  • STRENGTHEN YOUR MARRIAGE WITH DEB DEARMOND’S NEW BOOK, FACEBOOK AUTHOR CHAT PARTY, AND RELATIONSHIP CHALLENGES

    Marriage isn’t always going to be easy, you have to work on it. It should be a joy to work on though. Too many people think when something is broken it isn’t worth fixing and we should just throw it away. This book shows you how to work on it like God wants us too and not just give up. This is a terrific book to work on with your spouse or even on your own. I think it would be terrific for marriage counseling both before and after the wedding.

    Each chapter is short and has an example of something wonderful or hard and how God’s word tells us how to handle it. I love that there are questions for reflection and a terrific prayer at the end of each chapter. This book has inspired me to work harder to show my love to my husband and therefore glorify the Lord.

    Each and every day and really in each moment we all make choices; choices that all lead to a result or consequence, either positive or negative. Deb DeArmond has written a book encouraging couples to make deliberate choices in choosing each other and choosing to live each day in a way that will make their love last. “I Choose You Today” has 31 chapters in it, and each chapter focuses on a specific choice to make to help couples. I love that each chapter is so specific as it really allows your focus to be on that one thing, for example listening, really listening in a mindful manner. Also, I really like the questions that are at the end of each chapter as this really forces you to reflect on your own relationship and how to apply the choice and concepts discussed to your own relationship.

  • I CHOOSE YOU TODAY

    As someone who has been married almost 30 years (to the same man), I can vouch for this book. While it wasn’t around when I married, it is based on common sense principles that are necessary for marriages to survive. Some of the thirty-one suggestions are 1. Put God first in your life. 2. Pursue your spouse. 3. Love your spouse–it’s a decision. 4. Honor your spouse. 5. Loyalty. 6. Trusting. 7. Forgiving…. There are many more. And they are all wise. Good advice.

    Ms. DeArmond gives short stories to start each short chapter, discussions of not only what not to do, but also suggestions on how to apply them. There are discussion questions too, so this could be used with a husband/wife team, a marriage counselor or pastor counseling an engaged couple, or as a small group. Recommended

  • I CHOOSE YOU TODAY BY DEB DEARMOND

    I really enjoy marriage books like this. It’s great to have one thing to focus on for one day or one week, depending on how long you want the chapter to last and how long you want to focus on each chapter specifically.

    The title of the book is one that speaks truth. We make the choice to choose our spouses each day. We choose our attitudes and what we focus in each other. 31 choices can greatly improve your love for your spouse. These choices aren’t just for you choosing to love your spouse; it’s also challenging the reader to choose to open up and be even more transparent with their spouse.

  • A MUST READ FOR ALL MARRIED COUPLES

    This was an interesting book to read. I thought the author’s writing style was very easy to read. This would be an encouraging book for all married couples to read – whether you are newly married of have been married for 25 years. There is quite a bit of religious aspects in this book but if you are not very religious you can still get a lot out of this book. A few of the things mentioned in this book my husband and I already do like sending texts to each other. It is just a bright spot in your day when you get a random text from someone you love. Another thing I liked was how each chapter starts with a story. The questions at the end of each chapter will also make you stop and think about things. This is a book I will read more than one time. I recommend this book to all married couples.

  • NEEDED AND SOLID

    In the introduction to I Choose You Today, author Dee DeArmond says this:
    “Love is not a feeling, and neither is marriage. Each is a choice – one that must be made every single day, even if it’s spoken through gritted teeth. And we are smart enough to know we could never manage on our own; we are very clear: united in Christ is how we started and how we will have to continue if we plan to finish strong. And that is our plan. It’s an act of our will to choose our marriage, day in and day out. And it is God’s grace that makes that choice possible.”
    DeArmond has given married couples a valuable resource in her recent book. I appreciate the strong emphasis DeArmond places on God’s Word as an authority for the marriage relationship. She even begins the book with I Choose To Accept God’s Word As The Blueprint For Our Life. Also appreciated is the practical suggestions in the book.

    DeArmond also offers “Choice Questions” and a prayer prompt at the end of each chapter allowing the reader to apply the truths of scripture and personal story to their own marriages. The author’s strong portrayal of the grace of God as the source of being able to set selfishness aside and the ability to engage in life with our spouse is a refreshing and encouraging reminder that we aren’t in this alone.

    The book includes Banner Scriptures for Memory and Additional Conventional Wisdom at the end. I Choose You Today is a very well organized and highly biblical exhortation for Godly marriages.

    I Choose You Today is a fairly small book and is very to-the-point. DeArmond gives 31 ways to help your marriage, almost like a couple’s devotional. You can go through a new one every day, or you can reflect on a single choice per week (my recommendation). DeArmond gives real-life examples either from her and her husband’s relationship, or someone she knows.

    One of my favorite things about this book is that it emphasizes the fact that marriage is a choice. “Love is not a feeling, and neither is marriage. Each is a choice-one that must be made every single day, even if it’s spoken through gritted teeth.” It is a choice, but let me add one more thing: it is a choice for BOTH of you. If you work together and choose each other every day, if you keep God center, then no doubt you’ll experienc

    I Choose You Today is a wonderful reminder that strong and happy marriages don’t “just happen”. It takes time, energy and a lot of hard work (and even hard moments) to develop a marriage that will stand the test of time and life experiences.
    The book is very well written and I love that you take each chapter as a day in the month and can work through it like a devotional. It would be an ideal wedding gift or bridal shower gift, and even a perfect Christmas gift for a newly married couple.

Even more, I appreciated how the author encouraged the reader to go to the chapters that felt right to them instead of following the order given. It makes so much more sense for people to address the issues that are important to them and their relationships instead of following a set in stone plan. Each chapter starts with an example of a couple showing the issue and then how things can be different. I loved that the author’s husband proposed to her again years later, letting her know that he continued to choose her even after decades of marriage.

  • REVIEWING “I CHOOSE YOU TODAY: 31 CHOICES TO MAKE LOVE LAST”

    I think this book would be a great tool for any Christian couple, no matter how long they have been married, or how their marriage is doing. The chapters are short and easily applied to daily life. One of my favorites was the “I Choose to Bless You” chapter. It emphasizes the difference you can make in your spouse’s day just by telling them how much they mean to you, and thanking God (out loud and in front of them) for them during prayer. I’m definitely going to use this as a practical guide to bringing a renewed sense of closeness into our marriage. I would recommend this to couples and to Bible Study Groups looking to strengthen their marriages in a Christ-centered way.

  • “I CHOOSE YOU TODAY” REVIEW & PARTY! **COUNTDOWN TO VALENTINES DAY BOOK SUGGESTIONS**

    I don’t typically read the beginning/intro of the book but I’m so glad that I did with this one! The author shared a story about how her husband proposed again after 38 years of marriage and that yes, she would choose to marry him again. awww! She also shares ways how married or engaged couples can use this book together, and suggests taking each chapter slowly and not rushing through the book. There are 31 chapters in this book and at the end of each chapter are some questions to discuss with your partner and a prayer. This book can also be used as part of a book club or study group.

  • BOOK REVIEW: I CHOOSE YOU TODAY BY DEB DEARMOND

    This is a beautiful little book on marriage that I believe women of any age who have been married for any length of time can glean from. The book is divided into 31 short chapters and is an easy read. As the author suggests in the introduction of the book, readers may get even more out of this book if they read it slowly, mulling over one chapter per week.

    I loved how interesting the book was to read. Each chapter begins with and is centered around an anecdotal story. Being a story lover, that aspect of the book really appealed to me.

  • I CHOOSE YOU TODAY

    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.

  • LITFUSE BOOK REVIEW: I CHOOSE YOU TODAY

    I thought this book was pretty interesting. As a newlywed, I was captivated by the way this book shared advice on how to have a better marriage. Would I read this book over and over? No. But this was a good book. I enjoyed the way the author personally related every piece of advice with a story of her own. Thank you!

  • FANTASTIC BOOK

    I Choose You Today: 31 Choices To Make Love Last is the first book by Deb DeArmond that I have read and WOW I am so glad I did. This book is As a wife for almost 20 years my husband and I have been through our share of good and bad but my philosophy has always been, We make the choice everyday to be married, to be together, to stay together. This book reinforces that thought and expands on it in a way that really speaks to me. I enjoyed Deb DeArmond’s stories and antidotes about her own marriage. Her ability to look back at these events not with bitterness or blame but with love and humor, admit her mistakes and with the help of The Bible guide the reader to resolution. This book and concept doesn’t just apply to marriage, it can apply to any type of relationship where love is a factor, family, friends, etc..

  • I CHOOSE YOU TODAY~ 31 CHOICES TO MAKE LOVE LAST

    Wow~ this book is just in time for Valentines Day. I love this book. It is a great reminder for us all. It contains 31 chapters/challenges to do as a spouse or together as a couple.. It is also a book written in a way that would be great for Bible Study. At the end of each chapter are discussion questions. It would even make great Sunday School material for a couples class or a coffee group. I love the devotions/chapters. At the end of the book it contains the challenges~ such as Day 28~I choose to live in peace with you. ( Romans 12:18) The book is written to be able to pick which chapter you want to read and work on or read it in order.

    We live in a face pace world and sometimes our marriage is what suffers the most. We all need to take time to nurture the wonderful gift of our marriage. I highly recommend this book written by a Christian relationship expert. 31 choices to make love last~ I couldn’t have said it better myself.

    Taken from the Introduction of the book~ Happily ever after is not a fairy tale. It’s a choice.-Fawn Weaver

  • THE CHOICE THAT CHANGES A MARRIAGE

    With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, many of us are looking for that “happily ever after” we dreamed about as little kids. The truth is, though, fairy tales aren’t real.

    There’s no such thing as a marriage without conflict.

    There’s no such thing as a relationship without work.

    BUT…that doesn’t mean we can’t have our own (adapted, more realistic) versions of happily ever after. We can, but it’ll take work.

    It’ll take each of us choosing-daily-to put our spouse’s needs before our own.

    That’s what Deb’s book is all about…
