If you’ve read our blog long, you know that Monday has always been our date night–for as long as I can remember. We chose Mondays because it was our pastor’s day off and no church meetings were ever scheduled on that night. We knew we had a better chance of keeping our date nights if there weren’t scheduling conflicts to deal with. And it worked!
We can’t express the value this one commitment has had on our marriage. No matter how busy we were, I knew as a young mom I would have my husband’s full attention on Monday nights. And he knew he would have mine as well. This is a vital part of a healthy marriage–having time to just be together as husband and wife.
We think it would be a good idea to provide weekly Monday posts providing Date Night prompts to help you develop your own weekly habit of connecting with each other. Some of these will be reminders of past posts we’ve shared. Some will be fresh ideas. And some may be ideas we’ve gleaned from other friends or bloggers. At any rate, we hope you’ll find something to do together that works for you and makes a memory.
Monday Date Night Prompt
Since today is National “Joe” Day, plan to visit a local coffee shop for an hour or two to enjoy a cup o joe together. While there, choose one or two questions from our Date Night Questions tab to insure your conversation is meaningful.
Can’t find a sitter? Then, do this date in your home after the kids are in bed. Set up a cozy corner with soft lighting and music and turn off the electronics for one to two hours. The idea is simple. Check out one of our previous posts to give you more ideas.

Date nights are so important. Sometimes ours are just “being” together without something to do, but we always enjoy sitting in a coffee bar or restaurant and talking. Thanks for sharing your date night prompts.
Wonderful to hear from you Donna. We couldn’t agree more. Look for our next prompt on Monday. Blessings, Debi
