Continue - The - Courtship Night (At Home) -- Melting Together

Happy Continue-The-Courtship Night!

Tonight it's his turn and, as a guy, I like to think I'm pretty practical. I prefer practical things. 

As Mark Gungor teaches, we men have our 'nothing' box in our mind and we like to visit there as often as possible. (Gungor, 2012) Which can mean we enjoy things that allow us to focus and not have to think about anything.

The less we have to think, the more we like it, especially if the day was stressful. It allows us time to clear our minds, release the stress, and re-energize. Add some comfort and/or physical touch into the mix and you have a great date for a guy.

So, try this great stuck-at-home date idea:

Make Candles

They don't have to be huge. Wax, molds, and instructions can be purchased at a hobby store. It makes for great conversation, is something you do together, and lots of opportunity to touch each other.

Here is the practical part. You can use the finished product to give to home teaching families, friends and/or neighbors as gifts, or you can use them to set a romantic ambiance - maybe for when it's her turn again.  

For some easy step-by-step instructions, check out this video. There are also some other great easy-to-follow candle-making videos at YouTube. One thing I do recommend though is NOT to use your own dishes. You can pick up some old pots from a garage sale or thrift store for this purpose.
