Ahead of Thursday's premiere of "It Takes A Church," Grant spoke to The Christian Post about the dating show and reflected on her own experience finding "the one.""My husband and I often talk about what we are going to teach our kids, and my husband didn't even ever go on a date until he was 23 years old," the Christian singer said of Bernie Herms, her husband of almost 15 years.
"We met and became best friends, a lot of people would call it dating but it was never really romantic until a year in, and then we decided to get married."Consequent to her own experience with dating, Grant was drawn to "It Takes A Church" since the series is "so much more than a dating show.""You kinda have to call it something – so, for lack of better term, it's a matchmaking show," she said, before explaining that the new series headed to the Game Show Network offers church-going Christians the chance to meet like-minded people who could possibly turn into a spouse."There is an element of matchmaking on the show but it really is so much more than that," the singer told CP.
Finding love is something most of us think about, whether we have it currently or we are thinking about ways to achieve it either through a date academy, online forum or simply by hitting the bars.
With this in mind, it seems obvious that we would take interest in TV programmes that show people in the midst of finding someone special (or not as is often the case).
