Love Lounge Dating Blueprint Journal

The first steps toward transforming your dating life

I have agreed to review Love Lounge: A Journal for singles in exchange for a review. Views and opinions are my own. The journal is created to accompany her new coaching & matchmaking services set to roll out in 2018.

DE’VIZIA & COMPANY is a place where you can get dating tips, relationship advice, deals on services and products.

Have you ever had someone assist you in love, from matchmaking, dating, or maybe even family coaching? Now is the time to consider it.

LOVE LOUNGE has about 4 sections and 44 pages from Dating History – 1st Impression. One of my favorite “Quotes For The Heart” that is quoted in LOVE LOUNGE is “A bitter woman says “all men are the same” a wise woman decides to stop choosing the same type of guy” How real was that? I definitely agree. I believe having a standard will help you “stand” your ground to what you really want and stop going for the same type of guys.

There’s a question asking about our last date and details about our date. In my opinion I feel like this is a time where men are asking you out to eat instead of an actual date, because the “dinner” is a way to think they’re just taking it straight to 3rd base, but then most guys are not even going that far by asking you out anymore they just want to “Netflix and Chill” the last date I been on was in 2015 and it was nice to be taken out but it also turned me off for him to jokingly say “we could have gone Dutch” at the time I was like what’s that? It’s when you pay your half of the date. Then he also mentioned that we were not going to be doing this all the time I’m thinking like “excuse me” we are not even married and he’s already putting restrictions on our dates. I understand being broke in college but if you want to penny pinch through life leave me out of it.

Section 2 of LOVE LOUNGE is all about ME, MYSELF, & I . . .

I reflected on one of the questions. Did your partner give you hints to their unhappiness, challenges with communication, etc? I feel like when someone is done with you they are not looking to work things out whether you’re right or wrong they just want to leave. If someone wants to go let them it’s not a marriage you are trying to mend back together and even with that you still can’t force it I’m divorced I know. Not all men want you fighting for them.

Section 3 of LOVE LOUNGE is all about Writing The Vision . . .

I think this is a really fun section because you get to write out what you want. I want to ask married couples. How many of them wrote out what they wanted in their ideal mate? And actually, have been fulfilled with the traits they looked for. When you really think about it and ask yourself what is it about this person that I allowed their non-negotiables in my life? Do their non-negotiable makeup for who they are?

Here’s another fun exercise asking where do your ideal mate spend their leisure time? I never really thought to hang out where my ideal guy would be I guess depending on your type you’ll know whether you should be at the library or a sports bar. Not that I am the one to go to church and expect a man after service.

Section 4 of LOVE LOUNGE is all about The 1st Impression . . .

What kind of first impressions are you making?

One of my favorite things to do. Cut out styles that closely reflect my personal style It’s like making a mini style vision board. This turned on the lights in my head to think hmm… being mindful of how people (men) are perceiving me. Do I look presentable, are they turned away because I have a style that doesn’t match them, or maybe the women who want to be found but come out with scarves on their heads and pajamas (ikr) sidenote: this is my actual style and how I dress I didn’t make this up I went through a lot of magazines to find my style for less or more. I couldn’t fit everything.

And last but not least the 1st date tracker? Yeah, I know we gotta relive and backtrack our last 3 dates and no I don’t have plans on seeing any of them again.

Again DE’VIZIA & COMPANY journals are created to accompany her new coaching & matchmaking services set to roll out in 2018 and if you would like more info and this is something you believe you need that will help you on your dating journey stop by DE’VIZIA & COMPANY

Love Lounge Journal for Singles was a great accompanying resource to my previous “Wifing it Network” training with Pastor Cora Jakes Coleman teaching me how to become a great wife. I definitely recommend the journal to all Single Women. It is and will be helpful to you as well. I learned a lot about myself on why I stay to myself and rather not date and what I look for when I date. I’m telling you DE’VIZIA & COMPANY will make a difference in your dating life.

 

The Potter’s House Church, Dallas Texas

My very first time at The Potter’s House I really enjoyed myself if you haven’t taken the time out I recommend going for your own experience you will be blessed in The Lord. This church is so huge I don’t think I had enough memory to capture everything I saw that’s why it’s best to visit when you can.

Guest Services was so nice to me to have blessed me with a welcome gift which was 2 previous Sunday Morning Services on CD’s, a bookmark for T. D. Jakes Show, a reminder card to remind me that I am Blessed and Loved at The Potter’s House and a welcome packet discovering The Potter’s House. Although my seat was reserved by Cora Jakes Coleman finding a good seat wasn’t a hassle and I’m blessed and highly favored. This weekend has been about nothing but #Thanks

It is so much you can do at The Potter’s House I actually grab a copy of The Potter’s House School of Ministry Licensed Ministerial Training Syllabus & Schedule Overview for their Two-Year Program hmmm it’s definitely worth the relocation because you have to take the training on-site at the actual location. I think this is a good way to keep track and record your progress some churches decide when they think you are ready I guess.

Message: Checked You 2 Bless You

Speaker: Bishop T. D. Jakes

Scripture: John 15:7-8

The difference between burial and planting is the one who put the seed in the ground! You are the most powerful where you are the most connected. There is no way to get to the fruit of an answered prayer life without a cutting. Sacrifice isn’t sacrificing if you don’t have options. Don’t be one that has a relationship with the promises of God, but not a relationship with Him. When He knows you see Him as more important than the mantle He wants to give you, He will open up the windows of Heaven to bless you! For all you have endured, He is about to release fruit in your life. In the abiding process, is the transformation of your desires and what you value. The Father gets glory out of you being fruitful because He put the seed in you. The moment you are more in love with the blesser than the blessing, He will begin to make you more fruitful. You may be in the midst of a test right now, but if He checked you He is going to bless you!
