Whimsical Date Nights: Andrea Ekpenyong launches new book
Andrea Ekpenyong is the latest author around. The Architect and co-founder of Antora24 Construction outfit has published a book titled Whimsical Date Nights.
Andrea said, she often gets asked; “why should we date in marriage? Why not just reserve it for special occasions instead?” According to her, when people come with her using these arguments, she usually engages them by asking; “Why do you think you found it easier to go on dates before you got married?”
She says, “It is disheartening to see that we find it necessary to date to get married but can’t find the time to date to stay married. Marriage is meant to be enjoyed not endured and what you will learn in the pages of this book will show you how best to enjoy and have fun in your marriage.”
The certified Life Coach, Neuri Linguistics Programming and Emotional Freedom Tecniques Therapist is passionate about nurturing marriages from belligerent chaos to a happily ever living.
“By the 4th year in our marriage, I realised that we had gotten so busy being married but there was a gap something was missing. We found that dating before marriage was fun and easy but had become consumed by the life and starting a family at the detriment of our marriage so I started reading and researching simple ways to bring back the sparks”.
And that’s how Andrea found a working formula. She has captured that process and secret in a book. Pre-orders are currently ongoing on online and the book will be available across other famous platforms like Bambooks, Okadabooks, Amazon prints and ebook. Even as the printed versions hit the stands on the 19th of June.
Years of trainings, lots of research, life experiences, using her marriage as a testbed, as well as leveraging on other people’s experiences. Andrea really went in to make a book that actually solves a problem.
While most online resources are for dating and not for married couples even as they more often leave you with more questions. This book is an answer to dating in marriage.
The book is more or less a dating manual. It includes activities you’re advised to practice as often as required until dating becomes your preferred lifestyle.
What readers of the book have been reiterating are the timeliness of the book and how something often considered simple or inconsequential as dating can be the bedrock to a ‘happily ever after’ marriage.
Published designed and packaged by Worital.
“Working with Worital was an absolute delight a very professional experience, so much so that though it is my first published book I understood everything that was required at every step and the published book came out fantastic” expressed Andrea.
Emeka Nobis, the CEO of Switchpath Consulting and author of Your Book Will Sell, wrote this book’s foreword. He informs readers that, “…the book has only 6 chapters. You will chew it in less than 3 hours, but I do know that your marriage will span decades if you embrace the words on these pages wholeheartedly.”
Majority of couples got married after dating for a while. It is disheartening to see that we find it necessary to date to get married but can’t find the time to date to stay married. Dating in marriage is about creating new memories while on the old. It’s about connecting with your spouse irrespective of how busy life gets, dating has been proven to improve intimacy among couples so it shouldn’t be a special occasion activity but a lifestyle geared towards building a happy home.
