Ever get stuck in doing the same date nights? Or spend hours on Pinterest looking for unique date ideas? I think a lot of us can answer yes to one of those questions if we do regular date nights with our man. BUT NO MORE! Today, I am going to introduce you to “52 Uncommon Dates” by Randy Southern. I was so excited when I got a free copy to review for you all!
My friends over at Moody Publishing contacted me and asked if I would like to review “52 Uncommon Dates: A Couple’s Adventure Guide for Praying, Playing, and Staying Together” First of all, I loved the concept behind the title. Then, I found out the introduction was by Gary Chapman (Who wrote the 5 Love Languages which I am a big fan of and write about frequently) and has a section on how to apply each date to the Love Languages. Yes- sign me up!
So now I get to tell you about it and give one away to one of you lucky readers!
Each date has several sections to guide you.
Words to Grow On: There is a verse and quote from Gary Chapman that relate to the date.
Set the Scene: Gives a little over view on how this date can connect back to the bible.
Make it Happen: Directions and tips on how to pull the date off.
Finish Strong: Questions or conversation starters to wrap up the date.
Mind Your Language: An idea on how to implement a Love Language during the date.
Take it to God: Topics to pray together before the date starts.
Dig Deeper: Scriptures that relate to the date.
Dates are uncommon.
There are all kinds of dates! Some dates are entitled “The Cemetery Date” “Design-A-Shirt Date” “The Service Date” but the one that stood out to me the most was “The Lego Date.” We have Legos from Ryan’s childhood and he still loves to create things so this would be a perfect date for us!
There are some dates that include a bike ride, cooking, game night or even a tv date that seem less “uncommon” however with the guides that I mentioned above that are with each date it will be unlike any other date you have had before!
Overall, I think this book is an AMAZING idea! To think if you purchase “52 Uncommon Dates” for $8.99 you have a date lined out for every week of the year! And if you like dates that are already planned and ready to do you might also like these 20 at home dates that cultivate communication, intimacy and growth.
