"Conflict ^either makes love better or causes it to turn bitter. Tim and Joy Downs' book is ^a GPS for couples who want a safe and passable route through the maze of married ^couple conflict."


Dr. Tim Kimmel author of Grace Based Parenting




In this companion to Fight Fair! (a treatise on "winning at ^conflict without losing at love"), Tim and Joy Downs capture the heart of marital ^differences. This time they concentrate less on how to "fight fair" and more ^on "making sense of the differences that divide us."

One of Us Must Be ^Crazy... and I'm Pretty Sure It's You is a unique and manageable resource for ^equipping couples to learn the true nature of their conflicts and deal with them ^in a way that will actually help their marital fulfillment. By interacting ^candidly and honestly with such issues as SECURITY, LOYALTY, RESPONSIBILITY, CARING, ^ORDER, OPENNESS, and CONNECTION, Tim and Joy Downs have created a resource that ^might simply make all the difference in your world.
