FOR DATING, ENGAGED AND MARRIED COUPLES
We created a his and her "funbook" to help couples connect. When you and your partner are a unified force, you can accomplish almost anything together.
Now let's be clear. This is not a book filled with date ideas or how to plan a lovers getaway. Just use Yelp and Expedia for that. "Five Dates" is your strategic guidebook to building the relationship you always wanted. The process is simple, innovative and something that both of you will love to do together.
What makes Five Dates unique? Many relationship tools unknowingly set couples up for failure because they create unrealistic expectations and add unneeded pressure to the relationship. This process keeps it positive, encouraging and hits the most core topics for creating a healthy relationship. To put it simply, we set you up to win!
Take the "Five Dates" challenge and see the impact for yourself. Remember, your relationship started with a first date. Imagine what can happen with five more.

What's In The Bundle?
A HIS AND HER WORKBOOK
You get 1 book for him and 1 book for her in the Five Dates bundle. Each workbook is 150-pages in length and the content is created to take into consideration male and female learning styles. The workbooks are maximized both for fun and effectiveness.
What Are The Topics?
"Five Dates" will help you have five important conversations that are fun, insightful and will help you connect with your partner. Here are the five key topics:
PRACTICING RELATIONAL NOWNESS
God is doing something right here and right now in your relationship. Learn the skills to fully see, hear and understand your partner and tune into love. Too often couples live either in the past or stress about tomorrow. We will show you how to slow down, see each other and recognize how God is working today.
A NEW WAY TO COMMUNICATE
Discover and understand each other's talk styles. We show you how the "sofa" and "step stool" styles of communication trip couples up in their relationship. The workbooks will teach how to communicate on purpose.
In this chapter, couples will shift their point of view from a "scarcity mindset" to a "generosity mindset." This technique will reduce friction as you discover points of blessing within each other.
ORIGINS AND THE STORY SAFARI
Go for an adventure into each other's family of origin and learn new things about your partner. When couples can see their partner's whole story and learn to practice compassionate curiosity, they will uncover a beautiful treasure.
In this section you and your partner will develop your individual dreams and develop a dream as a couple. Having something to look forward to and identifying a simple goal for your relationship is incredibly important. Avoid drudgery. Stop the predictable. Learn to support each other's desires and longings.
DON'T CALL IT A WORKBOOK CUZ It'S JUST TOO FUN TO BE CALLED WORK.
"Five Dates" is a his and hers bundle that includes one book for him and one book for her. But these aren't your typical books. The content is powerful, fun and practical. With just a small investment of time each week, you will learn how to build the type of relationship that you desire.
The "Five Dates" workbooks include:
SHORT READINGS THAT UNPACK THE BIG IDEA
CREATIVE ELEMENTS TO HELP YOU UNDERSTAND EACH OTHER
A RELATIONSHIP ROADMAP
PERSONAL ASSESSMENTS AND EXERCISES
DISCUSSION QUESTIONS FOR THE DATE
Guys Will Like It! We Promise!
STRATEGIC CONTENT DESIGN
Here's the deal. After years of research and conversations with hundreds of men, we learned something incredibly important. Guys want to grow but they just don't know how! They lack a clear process and a framework that considers their learning styles. Most relationship tools are too time intensive, overly wordy and make it hard for him to succeed. That's why "Five Dates" is perfect for the guys!
THE HEART BEHIND "FIVE DATES"
Here are the facts: Relationships are hard. Marriage is complex. Couples unknowingly sabotage the very thing they are trying to keep. These truths of life motivated us to ask the question, "What can we do to help?"
Many of our friends have been struggling too. Deep frustrations with their partner. Affairs. Constant fighting and friction. Couples are struggling and we wanted to help.
Who Is This For?
if you're in a relationship, THIS is for you
Married couples. Engaged couples. Couples just starting to date. No matter where you're at in your relationship, "Five Dates" will be a perfect tool to help you grow, connect and discover true intimacy with each other.
