Fight for Us takes couples on an inspiring journey into the challenges of battling for their marriage, through gut-wrenching times of despair, and then finally to the victory of a renewed relationship grounded in Jesus.
Fight for Us delivers a compelling marriage challenge of five rounds that teach readers how to develop the never-give-up, never-quit mentality every relationship needs in order to combat the enemy’s constant attacks.
Utilizing narrative elements from the real-life story of Chad and Kathy Robichaux, readers will learn how Chad’s deployments to Afghanistan as a Marine–and subsequent career as an MMA fighter–allowed him to disengage from his emotions, his marriage, and his children. Then, when his crippling PTSD brought him to brink of suicide, Kathy’s pastor taught him the five rounds of fighting that are necessary in the battle for any marriage:
1. Believe that God loves you and has a purpose for your life.
2. Take responsibility for your actions.
3. Accept that you can’t change the evils that you’ve encountered.
4. Access God’s power.
5. Put yourself second.
At the end of the rounds, readers will discover God’s design for marriage, which saved Chad and Kathy’s relationship. Today, they aim to pay it forward and share what they’ve learned with other couples. Fight for Us features application sections, discussion prompts, affirmations, and Bible verses, all designed to help readers apply the book’s key marriage principles.
