love dare...


Ben and I started the Love Dare three days ago. It's a book that was created for the movie, Fireproof (recall my post here). We were a bit nervous that the challenge would be much like the film...a bit cheesy. However, it's been so much fun already.

Each day there's a small written segment that describes what is needed to love your spouse as Christ loves us. From there, you're given a small dare for the day. Each day builds on the previous day(s). So, you're constantly challenged to repeat the daily dares.

So, whether you find yourself enjoying pure marital bliss, or you're a bit frustrated by your mate, consider picking up this book! It's well worth the $.

P.S. I'm not being paid to say any of this...

I'm so glad you shared this, Anne...I almost put the book into Todd's stocking but decided I didn't want to try to push it on him. Maybe I'll bring it up now! :)

Sweet Jess! I had planned to give it to Ben as a Christmas gift too. But I didn't want it to seem like he was the one that should be working on our marriage. So I waited and gave it to him a few days later. When I did, I told him I wanted us to do it together. So we read the book at night and then we have our dare laid out for the following day. It's been fun already! Let me know what you decide to do. ;)

Hi Anne,

I am so happy to discover your blog and read about your life! So cool that you're a teacher, following in your mom's footsteps. She is an amazing woman! Thanks for sharing your thoughts and ideas with the world!

Cheers,

I'm going to have to check this book out. One of the coolest things I ever heard is the best gift you can give your kids is to love your spouse. And I love that you have such strong faith Anne. Going to link your blog on mine so I can continue to be inspired by you. Love the picture of you and your hubby too!

how sweet- I love this idea...Mark and I are reading through the New Testament together this year, which has been a neat way to reconnect after being married 5 1/2 years...
