In September, the movie The Song was released.  The story involves a couple, and some of the strains that their relationship goes through as they face life changes.  I have not seen the movie, but it is based on the Song of Solomon found in The Bible.

This devotional book for couples is also inspired by these writings.  It is not a movie companion, so any couple looking to grow closer can use it.  

This plan is broken into six segments and each segment covers a week's worth of reflections and prayers for the couple to reflect on.  There are pages for note writing, too.

The book begins with a letter from the authors, Teaching Pastor Kyle Idleman and his wife DesiRae.  If you are familiar with the Southeast Christian Church in Louisville, Kentucky, this is where he works.  After the couple's welcome, they dive right into the substance.  

Each day there is a story, a quote from the song of Songs, a bit of teaching about the selected verse, and then a part labeled "the bridge" where the couple reflects on the teaching and how it relates to their own marriage.  Finally, there is a complimentary Bible verse selection.

The six weeks are broken down like this:
  1. Deepening Desire
  2. Increasing Intimacy
  3. Fighting Fair
  4. Rediscovering romance
  5. Cultivating commitment
  6. Fostering Faith
The book is written in a familiar, conversational tone.  It is easy to relate to, and definitely a fun way to grow closer to your spouse.  While the introspection is serious and the subject matter can be deep, it is all presented in a relevant manner.
