Publisher's Summary

David and Tamela Mann have been married for 30 years, but the singers, actors, and entrepreneurs are just as, if not more than, happily in love as they were in the early days of their relationship. In their new audiobook, the couple will relate the story of their first encounters as teenagers, the importance of communication, and how they’ve been able to keep that spark burning through all these years. 

The Mann's have delighted and inspired audiences through music, a string of plays and movies, as well as several television series - Meet the Browns, The Mann's, and Mann & Wife. They’ll share their often hilarious and sometimes controversial interactions with each other, their blended family of five grown children and eight grandchildren, and how these relationships enrich their lives. Given their recording careers, touring, filming, and managing an outrageous family, the Mann's will share with listeners the day-to-day challenges, successes, and joys that happen behind the scenes.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

I couldnt stop listening to it. I purchased the audio book today, and listened to it all day until it was done. The level of transparency and realness was truly amazing. I cried, I laughed and I truly have been blessed by it. Thank you David and Tamela Mann for sharing your story.

Advice that'll carry you through any relationship

I'm not married...YET or in a relaitionship for that matter. However I still was drawn to hear advice of experience from what I consider an influential couple. On the surface I considered their marriage to be the ideal marriage. I follow them on social media and found myself saying, "I want a love like that". But I'm not naive and know all relationships are not easy. What I've learned about the Mann's through hearing this reading is that marriage or any relationship requires work, prayer, give and take, and first and foremost God at the front of it all. Their relationship was not perfect by any means nor was their journey. I appreciate the emphasis on friendship in their relationship. My biggest takeaway was that friendship is foundational in any relationship or marriage. Thank you both for opening up about your process! I'm sure that what I've taken in from your story will have an impact on my life!

Respect , Love and Encouragement

This book was so encouraging! Hearing the authors narrate the book made it seem as if I were listening in on a conversation right from their living room. The love and respect shown has given me a new way of wanting to love my spouse even more. Thank you so much for sharing your lives with the World. This book will bless many couples.
