We found a book that we thought would be awesome to share with you. It's called 10 Great Dates Before You Say "I DO" by David and Claudia Arp and Curt and Natelle Brown.

Going on dates is an important part of a relationship, even into marriage. The authors of this book have guidelines and setup for each date:

  1. Commit to 10 dates.
  2. Set up a calendar for dates
  3. Make sure your calendar is clear for the dates
  4. Plan to change plans if the unexpected happens
  5. Look toward the date and build up anticipation
  6. Read the corresponding chapter and take notes and do prep work
  7. Use the guide in the book and stick to the discussion
  8. Be upbeat and hold hands
  9. Do the work

We want to share a few things without sharing everything about 5 of the dates!
