About The Authors:

Peter and Heather Larson and David and Claudia Arp help couples of all ages and stages build great marriages. Peter is a licensed clinical pyschologist and Heather is a Christian life coach. David and Claudia, founders of Marriage Alive, created the many Great Dates seminars and resources, now popular across the U.S. and internationally.

My Review:

Regardless of whether you are an engaged couple, newlywed, or been married for 25+ years, this new book from Peter and Heather Larson and David and Claudia Arp is a must read!!!

It is filled with ten date ideas that will bring you closer in your relationship with one another and with God! They are dates that take a little planning and will have you asking each questions that you may have not thought about asking. You will dig deeper and have fun doing so! I thought the book was a quick and easy read, and really enjoyed that it was written by two couples, as that gave a bit of different perspectives, and I felt like I related to several of the personal stories that were relayed through the book. While the dates are set up in a structured manner, I would think that they would be very easy to adapt to your marriage and life situation. I look forward to trying out these dates in the near future!

This is a perfect gift for weddings and engagements and one that I highly recommend!

BUY IT: You can purchase 10 Great Dates at your favorite bookseller from Bethany House, a division of Baker Publishing Group
