Here are the best suggestions I can possibly give for getting the most out of Don't Go to Bed Angry: Stay Up and Fight:
1. Buy two copies.
2. Buy two notebooks or journals (with each spouse getting one that works best for them).
3. Read through the book a chapter at a time, with the plan to work through the questions at the end of each chapter as a couple, after you have each read the chapter and have answered the questions that our found at the end of each chapter.
4. Create a time to get together as a couple and work through the steps listed in #3 together. Repeat process for each chapter.
This book is meant to be a resource for couples--so, two active participants. It may lead to the couple reaching out for Biblical counseling within their church, or finding a mentor couple who can help them work through any areas of hurt or conflict they can't quite navigate on their own. I do believe that if only one spouse is willing to read this book it can still be a good resource--but please remember to take away what YOU need to do to improve your relationship, and not look for areas that just point our your spouse's flaws (I guess that's also important if you both read it, but especially necessary in the situation of one person reading it). I have already encouraged some friends of ours to purchase and two copies and walk through the book together, and I do consider it a tremendous resource.
