I got this book from Tyndale Blog Network and loved it!! There are so many great ideas of ways to have “dates” when you’re married. Living in a small town, there are some that we’ll never be able to use, however there are other great ideas about things that include dinner, movies and things that are located in our town. I love the other ideas of having a “date” without going anywhere. Golly, would I love more of that. My husband and I never get time to go out together on a date, and there are a lot of great ideas in this book that I’m going to try and implement and make a habit to add to the calendar.
I so agree with what the book said about going on dates and still “getting to know” each other after you’re married. There are so many things that you can grow even closer by just sharing them and spending time together. One thing I learned years ago in a marriage bible study my husband and I attended was from a few of my greatest mentors….they said, even though you have children, you were husband & wife first! That relationship comes before all else and having God as your foundation under that, just makes all else work together well. Great advice, and some I will hold onto forever!!
The Little Book of Great Dates will help build romance and fun into any marriage with its creative ideas for a year’s worth of weekly affordable dates. This book—a simpler, gift version of Focus on the Family’s The Date Night Challenge campaign—will help couples to proactively and intentionally build their relationship, showing how everyday activities can become “dates” that strengthen the marriage relationship. It includes plans for special-occasion dates, such as the couple’s anniversaries (first date, engagement, wedding), birthdays, etc. Couples can get to know each other better by sharing fun times and discover dating again in their marriage with this great little book of ideas!

We live in a small town too, but I really need to start adding date night back on my planner. Thanks for the review. I will check out this book next time I’m on Amazon.
