Welcome Baby Emmalynn and A Date Night Idea

Today’s post is shorter than usual because our family is busy celebrating the arrival of baby Emmalynn! Right now, sleep and free time are rare commodities. But Jenny and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Emma arrived on April 12–her exact due date–and weighed in at 8.8 lbs. She is happy and healthy. Our family is truly blessed!

A Date Night On Us

Our other big of big news–though not as exciting as the arrival of Emmalynn–is that I’m giving away my eBook, 131 Creative Conversations For Couples. Today is the last day to download your free copy! But a word of warning: If you enjoy boring date nights with your spouse, then this book is NOT for you!!! 

The goal of this book is to encourage couples to grow closer to Christ and each other while having a blast in the process! If you would like more joy, closeness, and in-to-me-see in your marriage, then this short eBook is definitely For you!!!

131 creative conversation starters for couples

As you can see, this week, I am keeping things short and sweet. But that doesn’t mean that Jenny and I don’t want to hear from you. What have you been up to? What great date nights have you taken with your spouse? And how can our family best pray for you? We look forward to hearing from you in the comments below!
