I recently was asked by Dayspring to write an article for them about the importance of dating in marriage. I have been praying for God to open doors for me to share my heart about my love and passion for seeing marriages restored, and today was the first step towards that calling on my life.
5 Date Ideas for Married Couples
My husband and I have not always had the best relationship. Our first seven years of marriage were spent not knowing Jesus and we lived for each of our own lives instead of investing in our marriage.
