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.
