“Does your church teach on how to get from singleness to marriage in a godly way? Probably not, but this book brilliantly helps to bridge that gap. Dare to Date is essential reading for church members and leaders to further develop a much-needed healthy Christian dating culture.
Aukelien is a Christian Psychologist who understands this topic from personal and professional experience. With God at the centre, her book warmly encourages single people with really helpful insights, stories and strategies that will improve their dating lives.”
